6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By James R. Ludwig on February 13, 2014
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have read and reviewed each of the four books so far available in this series. In earlier reviews, I have said that, next to attending on of Bill Berhardt's excellent seminars, these books are the best way to benefit from this fine author's grasp of what it takes create compelling fiction. But this fourth installment deserves special praise. Dialogue is the bane of most beginning and even established authors. How do you make it interesting, believable, and still use it to move the story forward without telegraphing your surprises or neglecting important undercurrents? In clear, direct prose, containing numerous spot-on examples, Mr. Bernhardt demystifies a complicated component of writing and provides the budding writer with real tools to tame this wild creature called dialogue. What he teaches makes sense and allows the student to repair and enhance his or her own attempts. The exercises take time and effort, but yield tangible results. This not a read through once and feel enlightened book. This is writing tool that you will return to again and again. Buy it and use it to improve your writing and inform your reading. It's a gem.

I have written over 40 non-fiction books with traditional publishers. When I decided to expand my skill-set to write fiction, I came upon this series. It is well-crafted, focused, confident, and has immediate practical application. ~ Connie Neal

This is a necessary purchase for serious writers. It is easy to read - I read it very quickly - and full of useful information. It covers everything you need to know about dialogue and more. The author gives plenty of examples, exercises, and makes you laugh a bit along the way. This is one of those ones you can highlight and keep by your computer.

I had read another of Bernhardt's 'Red Sneaker Series' of writing books before this one, and came away from the experience a little bit smarter about writing but not terribly impressed. Still, I could tell the man knew what he was talking about. I didn't know (and still don't) that I agreed with his rationale for writing several short writing books, each on only one topic, rather than one long one (he says its so you don't have to take a huge break from your writing to read them, but I suspect it's because he can charge more for them separately than together) but I found a good deal on three more of them and so I grabbed them.

Just as before, there's some good stuff. My sense that he was shilling for his own fiction wasn't as strong as before, which was good. He speaks with authority but not with pompousness, and his advice was good to ponder. This book on dialogue was a useful tool full of good thoughts, and again, though it was not the most genius of all writing books I've ever encountered, I'm glad I read it.

Worth the money.

Bernardt's book on Dynamic Dialogue is a great book for beginners and a review for the advanced. The first half covered information I already knew, but I continued reading on and did find valuable information presented in an easy to understand way that was valuable to me. So, based on the last half of the book, I give the book a 5-star. If I even glean one important fact that helps me, I consider it money well spent.

For anyone interested in maturing as a writer, I highly recommend that they read the entire Red Sneakers Series by William Bernhardt. I have self published three novels so far. The first one being "awful" with each successive novel improving greatly. However, since I have found the Red Sneakers series, my current manuscript is absolutely fabulous! A must buy for the budding serious author.

I am really impressed by these little books. They are easy to read and pack a whole lot of useful information. Dialogue is one of the most essential parts of fiction. With expressive dialogue you are able to convey tension, and propel the plot forward. This little book fills the bill when it comes to helping out writers. And for the price, you really can't beat it.

I have several of William Bernhardt books. He's a good teacher. I always learn a great deal from his books. The only reason I didn't give him 5 stars is because he reminds me too much of a professor I had who thought was way too impressed with himself. So it is a personal thing.

Two section one on the villans and the other about profanity were really helpful. I would recommend this book.
