Vogler's live presentation on using classic structures found in mythology to drive stories walks both sides of a narrow line. Live presentations delivered in audiobook form either capture the dynamism of the subject matter or fail to convey a "must see" performance. Vogler delivers both. All storytellers can benefit from Vogler's lessons, yet an abridged, more thoughtful, delineation of his methods would serve better. Clocking in at three-plus hours, this book could easily be trimmed to less than two by excising needless repetition and collecting better real-life examples hidden in Vogler's meandering lecture.
