  • Overrogan-- er, overrated...

    This book was not as phenomenal as Joe would have you believe, but it's ok. It cuts to the core of procrastination, if that's your problem, and accepts no excuses.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Go create something - now!

    Steven Pressfield points out the evils of resistance and then sounds the clarion call to go forth and blast past it, to give the world what you've got. No matter your field, no matter your educational level, you've got something to contribute to the world. Presented in bite-sized chunks of wisdom and personal stories, this books' ideas are easy to get, but for most of us hard to do. He acknowledges the fight on every page, and implacably urges you go get over it and move forward.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Good

    A military style approach to creativity. If you are a writer, then write, a singer then sing, a painter then paint, a pianist, then play. The book started off strong but fades off somewhere in the middle. Worth reading if you’ve been procrastination on your artistic pursuits or need a bit of inspiration to stay motivated.

  • Problematic to say the least

    The more I read of this book, the more insufferable it became. I lost it when Pressfield claimed that illnesses such as ADHD are marketing ploys rather than real medical diagnoses, and are excuses not to create art. This book is pretentious and condescending. It shines a spotlight on obnoxious, pretentious concepts about what art “should” be.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Inspiring

    Full of insight and inspiration. I didn't love every moment of it--there were parts that I thought were dismissive or compassionless--but that's the way pep-talk books come across sometimes, since the focus is on action and not empathy. Overall this gave me a new way to think about art along the lines of Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way, but with far more brevity and no exercises to work through.

    Thanks for your feedback!
