A manifesto for the digital age,Steal Like an Artist is a guide whose positive message, exercises, and examples put listeners directly in touch with their artistic side.
When Austin was asked to address college students in upstate New York, he shaped his speech around the 10 things he wished someone had told him when he was starting out. The talk went viral, and its author dug deeper into his own ideas to create Steal Like an Artist. The result is inspiring, hip, original, practical, and entertaining. And it's filled with new truths about creativity - that nothing is original. So embrace influence, collect ideas, and remix and re-imagine to discover your own path.

An amazing value and time saved!

This was awesome. I only listen to books because I don't have the quiet time available to sit with a good book. I was bummed when I saw the author didn't have an audio book available! I wanted to read this book so bad but knew I would likely never read the book. So glad this audible summary was available!! I was able to read and understand the big ideas in the book within the time its takes me to get ready. I will be buying more FlashBook Book Summaries!
