My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Given the reviews on Amazon and the personal recommendations I received about this book, I was expecting much, much more.
If you’re looking for a motivational primer to get you to write, it’s a good 3$ spent.
However, if you’re looking for direction as to how to get yourself read or self-marketing tips, well, you’re out of luck.
I started this book rather hopefully, but I lost interest quickly. Good thing the book is really short, because it was starting to get repetitive.
Among things that annoyed me, at the beginning he tells you how to never have to send a pitch again… and then tells you how to send a pitch. Confusing.
At least, Goins doesn’t promise you instant fame or money. He doesn’t tell you to quit your job to become a full-time writer/blogger/internet marketing bullshitter. I can appreciate that kind of honesty.
So, if you are a writer, you probably already know it. If you don’t write, no amount of books can convince you otherwise.
So sit down in your chair and write, if you think this is what you are meant to do.
