A Glorified Pamphlet with Typos Galore
on April 2, 2013
I don't know where to begin. Whether it's the awkward, unmusical prose, the total absence of depth, the eye-rolling stabs at humor, or the abundance of typos, this book has nothing for everyone. I mean for chrissake, the first word in the book is misspelled! If that's not a bad omen, I don't know what is.
But by far the worst offense of 'Uprising' is its sheer lack of content. Presumably to hide this fact, the font has been scaled up big-time. Each page only has about 160 words. Multiply this figure by the page count (192), and you end up with just under 31,000 words. To put this in perspective, professionally published novels typically run at 80,000 to 100,000 words. At $15, you're getting a fizzle for your buck at best. So be warned.
Now, I like TJ and will continue to watch his videos, but this book was a huge disappointment. I really hope TJ learns from this mistake and releases a better, more robust book in the future. Until then, a revised edition would be nice.
