Hi Joe, Kimanzi, and Colleen,

I agree that it is sad that Brendon swears a lot in person. I have paid attention to his material for a little over a year and I agree that the material is top notch.

Brendon comes from a 'Cosmic Humanist' or 'New Age' mindset. This is the belief that God (aka the Universe) is an impersonal force that we tap into in order to move forward in life. (A way oversimplified description.) From Brendon's material, it doesn't seem as though he is opposed to Christianity, but that he has chosen a different road (following Tony Robbins as one of his first mentors) in the New Age path.

I hold out hope for Brendon, but it will be God (the Holy Spirit) who will lead and direct Brendon to Him, and if any of us are involved, than that would be exciting in my mind.

Thanks for bringing this up. (And Joe, the material is good if you understand how his frame of mind is different than a Christian's worldview is.)

Camden and Colleen, I just took the plunge and purchased the book as well. Figured for $6 it's not a bad deal. 

Kimanzi, that's sad to hear about Brandon. But his stuff is still applicable to the believer, correct?

Looks interesting Jeannie, congrats!

Comment by Kimanzi Constable on May 2, 2012 at 6:28am

Colleen, Camden, at the cobference Brendon read the last chapter to us of the Charge. He is a very talented writer but the one thing that stuck out was that it doesn't seem like he know's the Lord as his Saviour.

So in a book like the Charge he points to the universe and charm and all that stuff instead of pointing to Jesus.

Henry asked me about the conference and I told him the one down side is how much Brendon swears in person. His material his top notch though.

Henry -- Writer's Digest books are my go-to for how-to's; I've loved everything I've gotten. When you're ready to dive deeper, two of my favorites (from WD) are Plot & Structure by James Scott Bell, and The Breakout Novel by Donald Maass. Let us know when you have your bestseller written!

So honored to be a part of this..attention potential advertisers! Contact them quick for VERY reasonable rates! Next issue will sell out fast!!!
Comment by Colleen Reiter on May 2, 2012 at 5:12am

Hi Camden...I have pre-ordered Brendon's book too. It's been my experience that they really do only charge for the shipping. Have a great day!

Comment by Henry Matlock on May 1, 2012 at 10:43pm

I just picked up a free copy of Crafting Novels & Short Stories: Everything You Need to Know to..., written by editors of Writer's Digest.  I expect it to be a great resource.

Comment by Camden Ross on May 1, 2012 at 6:17pm

I just pre-ordered "The Charge" for just the cost of shipping (or so they say) ;) (price = $6.97).

If it is like any of Brendon's other material (or like the launch videos), it will be an excellent book!

Hi Kimanzi! Thanks for the info!That's very cool that you went to the 10X Conference and that you'll be going to the other 2 meetings as well.  Brendon gives a ton of info so you probably left there very pumped. I'm set to watch the High Performance Academy DVDs. That will be fun! I wanted to do that before the Experts Academy next year, so I'm moving toward my goal. His new book The Charge is coming out soon too.

I'm grateful for all the talented people in the 48Days Community and all of the shared links & connections beyond 48Days. There's so much talent & so much to learn. Blessings!
