5.0 von 5 Sternen Snyder's trio all winners, 22. Februar 2015
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
You'll definitely get the aha moments as you read through these brilliant series of three books that connect all the dots and reveal the secret of how to write a well structured screenplay. Synder lifts the veil on why genre is important as well as how to make the hero dynamic. He also offers a very clever and practical cork board technique of laying out your 40 beats BEFORE you touch that keyboard, saving from time consuming rewrites. The trio is not only for newbies, but also for heavyweight screenwriters.

Astounding insight into story telling - whatever genre - especially for screenwriters. You could practically create a beat sheet from the chapter headings. Great book, easy to read. He connects the dots across cultures

could it be ? Astounding, a real page turner for those interested in what may happen after death, or what happens when you die and come back to talk about it - from a neuro scientist's point of view

5.0 von 5 Sternen dont start writing, 3. Oktober 2014

not yet, anyway. Get the structure right, the beats and understand about archetypes - great insider expertise from Blake Snyder. The next best thing to actual coaching (very expensive) is this cheap gem. Don't write anything yet, read the book first

5.0 von 5 Sternen great bag at a great price, 24. Juli 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Aside from all the usual nifty Timberland genius is the fact that the shoulder strap has a rubberised pad that prevents the shoulder strap from slipping off your shoulder - VERY few bags I've ever seen do this! Plus, they have a draw string that seals the contents of your bag so they won't get wet in rainy weather. I love Timberland, they seem to think of everything! Oh, AND not only do they have a key string where your keys won't get lost, they also have an extra pocket where your water bottle can slip into. Ah, finally, everything you need in a messenger bag..


The 22 Immutable Laws of Branding

5.0 von 5 Sternen Still a valuable book on branding and on internet branding, 24. Juli 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Well worth reading, and although written a number of years ago, I still find it useful in getting the all-important topic of branding right. This book is useful whether you are a big company or a one-man show. The most useful theme for me is the need to focus in terms of products or services. They give great examples of mega famous companies who got it right - and who got it wrong and lost their focus.

Their initial predictions on convergence held true for many years, although these days where media and channels are in fact merging may mean that that is open to debate, however their immutable laws still seem to hold.

Highly accessible and readable with plenty of practical suggestions.

5.0 von 5 Sternen You will never think of "history" in the same way, 27. März 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Freer's approach is more academic than the populist Sitchin (the latter of whom writes an introduction to this work). I had to read it a second time to grasp the breadth of the argument because he really gets his teeth into issues. Enthralling reading even if you are not a convert.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Even if you view his work as "fantasy" or "science fiction" his writing is compelling, 27. März 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Sitchin tackles issues in a very methodical way that makes for pretty gripping reading. I haven't made up my mind if he is "right" yet because I'm doing other ("mainstream") reading too. His book has shown me that, with the lack of direct "evidence" you sometimes have to read between the lines. Some of his theories are a little too way out for me, but he is a very disciplined and thorough writer. His translations remain disputed, but I don't think the specifics are too important, the "bigger picture" he paints is important here in challenging all our age-old assumptions. What he does manage to convince me of is the formidable role Mesopotamia played in establishing civilization. You don't have to agree with him on everything, but give him a chance to put his case. Maverick theories are never popular in their own times. He convincingly argues that history the way we have been taught it cannot be right all the time. Unlike the "ancient aliens theorists" he does make a distinction between god and God. What many miss is that he never really tells you what to think and in that he is "Socratic": he tends to answer questions with new ones.
