Book review- The War of Art May 11, 2011

Posted by Jack Macholl in Uncategorized.

Just completed a great read. Steven Pressfield‘s  the War of Art is a truly motivational bit of writing that makes you think deeply about resistance and the psychology behind your inner “demons” that often hold creative people back.  The last page is really designed to get you up off the chair and share your talents.

He talks a great deal about the difference between “pros” and “ameteurs”- challenging each of us to look in the mirror and decide for ourselves if we “all-in” or just a hobbyist at our craft.

If you are in a slump or know someone who could use a healthy dose of positive motivation, this is the book.

Would like to hear from anyone who has read the book, what did you think?

I have Steven’s book on my Kindle. I will have to put it near the top of my reading list.
