Excellent book but...

Buy the hard copy. Not only are the illustrations wonderful but you will need to use this more like a reference book and go back and forth between sections. The information will be difficult to reference in such a linear format as audio. Again excellent book in information and beauty but buy the hard copy.

A wonderful edition of a great book

A book about writing which dives into interesting concepts and toys with them rather than simply parroting the same things you might read in a hundred other places. The paperback has amazing illustrations but the audiobook has its own charms. It's broken up into extremely useful chapters and it's captivatingly told, rather than dry and academic. The narrators are fine.
