The purpose of this book appears to be giving you an idea of how to create abstract opposites to further your story or novel. Please don't mistake it as a fiction band-aid: it's not. It may, however, get you through one of those boring middle sections by giving you ideas on what it is you need to fix to get your story running again. The book provides examples through the works of others, suggestions, and good explanations as to why the author is pushing his method. I thought the way he built on each topic was a little funny at first, but upon re-reading, I find the method actually serves to make his points better.
All in all, I keep this on the desk where I write, for when I am stuck in one of those writing quagmires.
