I’m a fan of Murphy and read his site regularly. This book, however, isn’t for me. I’ve written a couple of books and have been blogging for a decade, and I see the book aimed at a newer writer, consumed with an idea, with nary a clue as to how to get anything on paper.
I agree with other reviewers that much of the material is presented on his site, but so what? It’s nice to have a thing to hold in your hand instead of jumping from essay to essay. His voice here is little different than in his fiction works with lots of descriptions and emotions. It can be tough to cut through the smoke. The reader will, at times, have to sift through this flotsam to get to the main point.
A good book overall for the beginner or for anyone who fears the blank page. Three stars.
