"A good book about writing will guide you like a torch. You finish it and you’ve learned some useful lessons; you feel enlightened. But a great writing book is hard to finish because it keeps exploding in your face. All it makes you want to do is write. Everything else: blown away.
The Creative Compass is like that, a box of inspiring dynamite. And of course that’s just what you want. Boom! Get back to your writing!" (Steven Goldsberry, creative writing professor and author of
The Writer's Book of Wisdom)
"This is a wonderfully insightful guide to the art of transforming ideas and stories into books. It presents old narrative and stylistic truths in a new, highly imaginative way." (Stephen Kinzer, author of The Brothers: John Foster Dulles, Allen Dulles, and Their Secret World War)
"Thoughtful, thorough, and practical in its application, this is an important work on the creative process, and on the craft, business, and magic of writing." (from the foreword by Terry Brooks, best-selling fantasy novelist)

An very interesting read
Quite high it's a very insightful book well narrated.
Probably not the book is quite short and you could listen it in a single day but there is a lot to take in and you will probably need a brake to absorb all the information.
I bought this book for my mum who is a writer she loved it and said it was most helpful and inspiring i also listened to it and i really love the way it was written and narrated.
