I've read widely on both the Hero's Journey and Chris Vogler's other work and this is a pleasant addition: a live lecture recorded at an event in Austin. He's fairly entertaining and the Q&A sections are interesting.
However the fourth chapter is a duplicate of the third chapter so this book is really very short for the money. I bought it ages back otherwise I'd have returned it. It seems shoddy to have released it with such a glaring error...

This is Mr Vogler's personal spin on Joseph Campbell's inspiring work - an audio-book which did everything I had hoped for.
You'll probably find yourself running your own story-line alongside Vogler's model; a process which both exposes weaknesses and suggests solutions. His delivery is energetic, passionate and has a great lightness of touch - lots of good humor. He is a superb communicator.
Truly riveting and highly recommended for anyone interested in how a good story works.

The ideas in this lecture are covered in "The Hero's 2 journeys." That lecture is a tag-team effort from Chris Vogel and Michael Hauge and covers much more ground. If you have already listened to that lecture and want more of Vogel's ideas, this lecture has a few extra details and a little more depth.

Like THE HERO'S TWO JOURNEYS, which Vogler did with Michael Hauge, this is a recording of a seminar. In this one, Volger goes into greater depth talking about-- and giving examples of-- the hero's journey, as well as some of the archetypal characters the hero meets along the way. He gives many examples from well-known films, although he stresses the way a novelist can use the same information in his or her book. One nice addition is that many of the attendees of the lecture were able to ask questions about applying what Vogler taught to their own stories. Very enlightening.
