I enjoyed reading Stealing Fire from the Gods. I think I highlighted most of the book. James Bonnet has a unique way of studing how storytelling works and doesn't work. This is a book I'll be re-reading several more times to soak it all in...if that is possible. Thank you, James Bonnet
Once in awhile a book comes along that transcends genre, this is not simply a how-to book, but a very thoughtful, profound way of looking at life.
James has understood the technique well, and has gone steps further to explain the gist of the matter in his own way which is quite lucid, if you are familiar with the science of psychology as well.
I now see things in a new light every time I watch a movie or read a story, thanks to James' explanation of the Golden Paradigm, which despite being such a universal underlying format of stories, is not that easy to spot unless one understands it at all levels.
I found this purchase worthy of investment and a bargain compared to the value it offers...
