I suppose if I had been thinking about writing a memoir this would have been a book to get me off to a fast start but there are far better books on memoir writing than this particular book. For instance, among my favorites are Bill Rohrbach's, Writing Life Stories, or Mary Karr's, The Art of Memoir, or Brenda Peterson's, Your Life is a Book, or my favorite, Elizabeth Andrew's, Writing the Sacred Journey (a very useful work for someone who like me is trying to capture a spiritual experience within a memoir).
Where these books offer concrete advice and guidance on how to compose a memoir, what to watch out for, how to effectively tell your own story, unfortunately, Goldberg's book is more of a free-spirited book about writing than a useful book about how to write a memoir.
