Home School for GM's
By Niko from Texas. - Feb. 6, 2013

"This makes a neat addition to your GM library. It is genuinely unique in that there IS no other book devoted exclusively to teaching the art of organizing and preparing to run an RPG. The book is thin but not exactly a quick read. I found myself moving slow, absorbing the information. Some great ideas in this book that clearly come from the mind of a sophisticated and experienced GM. I would have preferred a more direct approach (in a few places) to teaching the skills presented (do this; don't do that). The author seemed to want to avoid a dogmatic approach in his teaching of session prep (and perhaps this was wise). Has a very Ken St. Andre-attitude of "just take what you want from this and leave the rest." Overall this is a book I would recommend to any GM, noob or vet. Fits in beautifully with your GM reference library. Also, would make a thoughtful gift for your GM!"
