This guy has a really annoying voice.

I am not liking this based off his voice. He sounds like a serial killer.

good listen

Overall a good book more useful for people getting started in Role-playing games. Had some good ideas that I hadn't really thought about.

Good info, but not a great book

I was disappointed in the book for reasons I think others don't want to bring up. Monte Cook is a nice guy, he's a great game designer, and he gives a lot of good info in this book; however, it's a bad delivery. The book doesn't seem to know it's target audience, and you will be bored with a lot of foundational stuff-- stuff that a new player isn't going to ever hear, b/c they are going to spend money on game books and not this one. All of that info is better for a free Ted Talk or online essay.

This book could be abridged and split into "New Player", "New DM", and "Experienced Player/DM" advice sections and I'd recommend it. Out of the 15 hours, I probably benefitted from 4 of them. If you can get this for free go for it.

Clear, consise, solid advice

Great resource for running or playing games. There's advice for anyone from someone who's never picked up fancy dice to someone who's been running games for years. Only complaint is that some segments don't work well in audio form, like the recipes at the end. The vast majority did work well, though, and the reader did a great job, maintaining a conversational tone. I plan to recommend this to nearly anyone who plans to play a game I run in the future.
