Customer Reviews

IndyBug ,

A little too on the sardonic side for me...

I enjoyed the content but eventually the jabs at Patterson got to me. Perhaps if he explained his relationship with him and they were life long buddies I'd feel differently.
I enjoy sarcasm, wit and the honest look at the writers life but not the personal jabs.
That said I'll be fair and listen to a few more and review once I have.

Michael Fahd ,

Mad musings

I am absolutely hooked on DB's pod-tail about all things writerly. Fervent observations on the challenge of storytelling concocted with such sardonic wit, it's bound to cause penning intoxication. Utterly addictive!
