Don't get me wrong, I liked the book and there's some good info in it. I don't doubt the author knows his stuff, he just didn't put a lot of it in the book. It's more of a summary book, like a long magazine article you read that gives you some good info but leaves you wanting more, a lot more. There's some good hints but it's short on detail and useful specifics on storytelling. The book mentions weddings, live business events, scripted filmmaking, etc. and would have been awesome if there was a chapter or two on each stating how to think about and handle various situations. There wasn't. In the age of being economical and not including a media disk, this book could have been nicely supplemented with links to some internet content, clips from the author's videos, etc. to help illustrate the points. Wasn't. I wish I'd paid more attention to the table of contents in the Look Inside feature here on Amazon so I could see how few pages are on storytelling -- 9" x 6" pages with pictures and white space at that.
There's a lot of material in it that's not about storytelling you can get elsewhere (like on the web) or probably already know if you're at the point where you're looking for material on storytelling.Read more ›
