As writers, we all know what an incredible tool dictation software can be. It enables us to write faster and avoid the dangers of RSI and a sedentary lifestyle. But many of us give up on dictating when we find we can't get the accuracy we need. This book changes all of that. With almost two decades of using Dragon software under his belt, Scott will reveal how to supercharge your writing and achieve sky-high recognition accuracy from the moment you start using the software.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

If you want to be educated about food and the downside of dairy and meat, then this is the book for you. What he means when he says you can eat as much of your favourite food as you like, is that you have to swap the foods that put weight on you for salads fruit etc. Had the title been,'swap your cakes for fruit and veggies', you wouldn't have bought it right?

What three words best describe Richard Mitchley’s performance?

Mediocre, bland and monotonous

If this book were a film would you go see it?

No

EMDR is the fastest and most efficient evidence-based therapy available today. It has resulted in 80-90 percent recovery from PTSD in five to twelve hours and was found to be much faster than cognitive behavior therapy.

What disappointed you about The EMDR Revolution: Change Your Life One Memory At A Time?

It was highly derogatory of every other therapy but boasted that EMDR (something I learned very little about) was the best thing since sliced bread and tried hard to convince the reader that it was THE only therapy anyone should ever have. It was case history after case history, Extremely tedious and boring.

Has The EMDR Revolution: Change Your Life One Memory At A Time put you off other books in this genre?

No, they have to be better writers than this on.

Would you be willing to try another one of Caroline Miller’s performances?

Yes. it wasn't her that put me off, it was the content.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The EMDR Revolution: Change Your Life One Memory At A Time?

Cut the case histories down by 90% and stop bigging up your therapy TAL and running down every other form of therapy. Very unprofessional. Try using some of the space to let readers know what EMDR is in more detail and how it works, not just that it works!

Any additional comments?

I kept hoping it would get better but it got more and more disappointing. The writer seemed bent on convincing you she's the best therapist around and that everyone else, no matter what orientation they come from, is rubbish. I should have dumped the book earlier.

Thinking it was a book about Irish families in the fifties, I was shocked at how the storyline changed.

I have to confess I'll only read the second one because it's on audible and because I want to know how things unfold.
