    "Very helpful for an author who has just started out."

    I felt the concepts were easy to follow and made applying them doable. I am always hesitant when listening to a self help book because really I feel it is the authors point of view and everyone processes information differently. This book exceeded my expectations because it has made me feel empowered to move to the next step. And stop being a "seater". I am ready to have a plan and go forward. I would recommend this book for any and all because there is very useful information that can help you improve not just in writing but everywhere.

    "Great motivation book with great tips on writing"

    Love this short and to the point book on learning ways to start writing. I got the kindle version along with the audible companion. This book is well written, and to the point. I recommend this to anyone with writers block or a fear of writing.

    "Excellent"

    Full of BFOs... Blinding flashes of the obvious. Definitely worth a few dollars and the attention to listen a few times if you truly seek the goal.

    Would love to hear a slight variation on this for bloggers. The emphasis seems to be on writing fiction. Much of this could apply to non-fiction as well.

    "Practical Advice with Inspiration & Encouragment"
    Any additional comments?

    I had read this book when it first came out, but when I saw the audio version, I snapped it up. I'm glad I did. I think I got something different from listening to it, and it was a nice reminder of all that I'd read before.

    This book is filled with practical advice as well as encouragement. I also find it to be inspirational, but not in a woo woo way. It's more that I can now see the steps I can take to improve my writing in many different ways and that is both inspiring and encouraging.

    I think the audiobook is well worth a listen. If you haven't already read the book, it comes with exercises at the end of every chapter, though these are also listed at the end of the book as well. The narrator reads these out, but this audiobook does not appear to come with a PDF list of the exercises. Even so, they are simple enough, so I don't think that would be a serious problem if you don't already have the Kindle version or the paperback.

    "Okay"

    There were a couple good ideas here but the author should leave the self help stuff to Tony Robbins

    "Couple of good ideas..."
    What did you like best about 5,000 Words Per Hour? What did you like least?

    Couple of good ideas - but not worth listening to the whole thing.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I bought the book thinking that it would suggest a different (better) approach to writing - and quickly discovered that this author's ideas could help when writing fiction, but my kind of writing requires actually thinking about concepts - and that doesn't happen at the speed of 5,000 words an hour.


    Could you see 5,000 Words Per Hour being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    There's not even enough content for a documentary.

    "Highly recommended"

    This is a concise, no nonsense book that doesn't just lay out the work that needs to be done but also provides excellent direction on how to do it.

    "Prepare to be changed"

    Great book, I didn't think it was possible but with Chris's help I have increased my word count considerably. I downloaded the app and it is amazing, in that it actually makes me write. I thoroughly recommend this book.

    Now Chris needs to write a book on the creative process and setting out the storyline, using the same type of approach - that would be brilliant.

    Also, help with editing in the same style as the 5000 word book. Money well spent
