Lynch describes the experience of "diving within" and "catching" ideas like fish and then preparing them for television or movie screens and other mediums in which he works, such as painting, music, and design. Lynch writes for the first time about his more than three-decade commitment to Transcendental Meditation and the difference it has made in his creative process.
In brief chapters, Lynch explains the development of his ideas: where they come from, how he grasps them, and which ones appeal to him the most. He specifically discusses how he puts his thoughts into action and how he engages with others around him. Finally, he considers the self and the surrounding world and how the process of "diving within" that has so deeply affected his own work can directly benefit others.
Catching the Big Fish will come as a revelation to the legions of fans who have longed to better understand Lynch's personal vision. And it will be equally intriguing to those who wonder how they can nurture their own creativity.

time well spent
The catchy title brought this book to my attention, never having heard of David Lynch. The book is a series of friendly "rants" by Lynch raging from getting creative to solving world peace. Lots of energy in his narration as well as interesting points of view reflecting how Lynch thinks we can improve our lives.

Like listening to a wise grandpa
David Lynch is amazing. He has a way of telling you things in a direct and interesting way without it feeling condescending or preachy. At times, it felt a little cultish in the way he pushed Transcendental Meditation, but it's worth it for the gems that are included throughout the book.
I have a feeling that I'll come back and relisten to this over and over again, each time picking up a new lesson about life.
Completely inspiring book.
