Publisher's Summary

What is writing? Can anybody do it? What's the best way to get started? And keep going? Over a decade ago, when Writing Down the Bones first appeared, Natalie Goldberg started a revolution in the way we practice writing. Instead of looking at writing as something open only to a few, she made it available to everybody. Her simple, ingenious exercises set free a generation of writers waiting to experience the inner and outer pleasures only writing can provide. Now, for the first time, Goldberg reads her classic work, while offering new commentary about the creative, spiritual, and practical dimensions of writing. This collector's edition also includes an exclusive interview with the author.

Ultimately disappointed

It feels strange saying that I feel 'ultimately disappointed' with a book that contains a lot of good information. However, I know that only because I have read the book previously.
What was disappointing was the audio quality. The maximum available was level 2 which was described as 'good', but actually sounded like Natalie Goldberg was talking from several feet below the surface of a swimming pool. I have - generally - a good quality of hearing, but I found the quality to be awful, which is a shame. Still, I now know not risk purchasing anything with an audio quality of less than a 3, but to preferably stick with the 4's. I'll look upon it as part of my Audible learning curve.
Best avoided, but only on account of the audio quality.
