Lame-Ass Book

Would you try another book from Mary Beth Maziarz and/or Teresa Willis?

No way would I buy another book from this author.

Has Kick-Ass Creativity turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, I still want to read books about creativity I simply want to read GOOD books about creativity and this is not one of them.

How could the performance have been better?

Narrator tried hard to make the author's words lively. Not her fault that the words and concepts were trite.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Kick-Ass Creativity?

This is one of those books that talks about what it will talk about but never really talks about it. Got 3 chapters into it then gave up.

Any additional comments?

If one wants to read a really good book about creativity, forget this one and immediately buy and download and enjoy listening to Elizabeth Gilbert's "Big Magic". She knows what she is talking about and writes so well and then narrates it with such warmth that she really does communicate "big magic".

Some good info, but over all my relevant to artists. (Unless you start with enough $ to live off of...)

This will make you feel wonderful about yourself if you come from privilege and need to be inspired. There's a lot of good stuff here but yikes.
