Review of End Writer's Block Forever! by Mark Bossert and Win Wenger, review by James S.
I’m a bit of a skeptic when it comes to “one size fits all” solutions and superlative claims of systems, ideas or methods made by the proponents of those methods. Having said that, I found this manual helpful in my role as a newsletter writer and public speaker. I have not yet followed all of the suggestions to explore my “beyond-conscious mind” to the extent the authors encourage. I do feel they have presented image streaming as a valid way to attack writer’s block. I found the lists of questions appearing throughout the book helpful in framing and advancing my writing. The best advice the authors give is to read this book and then write your own book. “Whatever you might get from this book, you will create even more value from what you write on the subject!” (p.97).
