Writer, poet, and teacher Natalie Goldberg shows you how to unleash your "wild mind" - the true source of your creative power. In this crisp mix of memoir, teaching guide, nonfiction and poetry, Goldberg strips creativity to the essential mind that is "raw, full of energy, alive, and hungry." Natalie is compassionate, practical, and humorous. "Even if it's just a leg hanging out the window, she says, "write it down." Highlights include: provocative "try this" exercises to compel you into action, advice on how to find time to write, how to discover your personal style, how to make sentences come alive, and how to overcome procrastination and writer's block. She'll also explore the larger vision of the writer's task: knowing when to take risks as a writer and a person, learning self-acceptance in life and art.More

"[It's] about accepting yourself, wherever you are, whatever you write." (Kate O'Neill, Sojourner)

From a real writer
Yes. If you need an "I can do it" kick, this is a good read
Natalie is great to connect with in her story.
She has a lot of personality in her reading, because it is about her and her core.
You are great if you will just show others, they will love you and what you do.
If you are trying to write a book, I would recommend this one. She is cool and easy to fall in love with as you connect with her story. The theme is just write. Volume is king and being open and raw is the key. Read this book to write yours, but also just read this book for the fun of it. Let a new friend in your car - you will enjoy it.
