Publisher's Summary

This is a summary on The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battles by Steven Pressfield.
A succinct, engaging, and practical guide for succeeding in any creative sphere, The War of Art is nothing less than Sun Tzu for the soul. What keeps so many of us from doing what we long to do? Why is there a naysayer within? How can we avoid the roadblocks of any creative endeavor - be it starting up a dream business venture, writing a novel, or painting a masterpiece? Steven Pressfield identifies the enemy that every one of us must face, outlines a battle plan to conquer this internal foe, then pinpoints just how to achieve the greatest success. The War of Art emphasizes the resolve needed to recognize and overcome the obstacles of ambition and then effectively shows how to reach the highest level of creative discipline. Think of it as tough love... for yourself. Whether an artist, writer or businessperson, this simple, personal, and no-nonsense book will inspire you to seize the potential of your life.

Thoughts

While I thoroughly enjoyed this reading, when I bought this I thought it was the actual book and not the summary notes. Looking back now it's clear that it was supposed to be a summary. Can't wait to read the entire book

THIS IS A SUMMARY

What did you like best about The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battles by Steven Pressfield: Book Summary? What did you like least?

Nothing wrong with it as a summary but I saw the correct cover of the book I was searching for the Audible book on and clearly didn't read closely.

Any additional comments?

While this summary and the reader's voice were just fine I really think the artwork could be edited to have Summary showing. I had no intention of purchasing the summary.

who is policing the length of the audio?

The book is fantastic! this brief snippet is useful but should be free!
The audio quality is fine, it's just a snippet of the book.

Dissolves resistance like magic powder

With a clever play on the classic title : The Art of War , this book helps us overcome procrastination in an original and inspiring way . I bought it initially to motivate me to write; it actually helped me to lose three and a half stones at the gym. It's key advice , I feel, is to adopt a professional
attitude towards whatever you do.

Too short!

It's just a summary, yet it is so full of golden wisdom and inspiration, I just wanted more! And the performance is grounded in realism, so the content is easy to digest.

30min Essence of Resistance

The brevity & range of the targeted teaching points really nailed what I was seeking - core mindshift ideas to frame & action, something I haven't been able to achieve despite knowing what I need to do to bring projects/jobs/task to closure. I heard Steve Pressfield interviewed recently & bought this summary. Ideal for the big thinker who struggles to move forward on their passion. About to listen for 3rd time as so much more learning with each round.
