A must-have for anyone creative (or not)

What did you like best about this story?

This book will acquaint you with Resistance in all it's cunning disguises, so you can face it down and get on with your Work. This book is not only for artists, writers, or other creative types. I think it would be helpful to anyone who can't seem to lose a bit of weight, kick the drinking habit, or commit to taking the actions toward whatever eludes them. It's probably Resistance, and this book will show you what to do about it.

A Game Changer

What did you love best about The War of Art?

I think as a creative person, this book just spoke to me, on so many different levels. The contents of this book are completely universal, regardless of whether you're an artist or not, I thoroughly enjoyed it, and will listen again.

What did you like best about this story?

I actually liked part 3, the spiritual side of where he thinks our creativity comes from - it's definitely divine.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

I loved the idea of invoking the Muse, and I'm not a hippie either.

Any additional comments?

Try this book out if you're creative, not-creative, or want to be creative.
