The book is so dull I can't bear to finish it :-(

Some good general advice but the format it so convoluted that now half way through the book, I seem to have unlearned half of it through boredom and confusion. It is so dry. I bought the book because the person who read it sounded a bit like Sir Ken Robinson and I love his delivery. And while Graeme Malcolm modulates, it is just feelingless, like he is not really connected with the material he is reading? Yesterday, I noticed I have over 5 hours left to listen to, so I actually started a new book. I expect I will give up and get a refund so I can learn how to story tell from someone else. They are a few good solid arguments but perhaps if the author thought about how to convey the information, rather than trying to prove how clever he is, it might be a more dynamic and interesting read.

Not bad, a little dry, sometimes smug.

Good principle, well written and well read; but despite the subject, this is definitely a condescending and prescriptive 'how to' manual rather than an inspiration.
