I would recommend this book at it really presents a good argument why most of us think about things we want to create but never manage to get to.
There is a quote from the Scottish Himalayan Expedition (WR Murray) which rings so true and fits into the overall themes in the book perfectly.
George's voice lent a credibility to the material. There was a purposeful use of emphasis which was enough to enhance points without getting annoying. Good Narration!
There were moments in this book that were so true to my own thoughts that I felt completely in tune with the author. And I will listen to this book more than once I am sure.
Great book especially for the person wanting to create something but resisting gettting at it.
If it is fiction, I would absolutely consider a book by Pressfield.
The book is full of claims with no backup. I know Pressfield wasn't writing for peer reviewed journals on his methods of defeating procrastination, but there are a lot of assumptions made that should not have been.
I don't pay that much attention to the reader unless it is really bad or really good so he must have been in between that.
Disappointment, and annoyance. Spoiler alert: To defeat procrastination you should pray to muses and rely on angels. Okie dokie. Next time just tell me to throw a penny in a wishing well and save me a couple hours.
I won't say the book is worthless. I'm sure some people can find some motivation in there somewhere. It was just a lazy book of claims from someone that sees themselves as an authority on a subject. It comes off more like a drunk bar conversation with someone telling you the secret to their success.
Yes, friends who cherish their creative streaks would enjoy it most. How many more words do I need?
unsure of how I could describe my favorite character in a minimum of 15 words
unsure of how I could describe my favorite scene in a minimum of fifteen words
No, I listened during multiple car rides because I do not often get the luxury of a couple hours to listen in one sitting - or one walk
First defining the resistance we face in trying to live our authentic lives, then offering ways to combat it and finally offering a course of action to continuing a course to living it, this book is a phenomenal resource that gives you a path to create a better life for yourself. Highly recommended for anyone who feels like they have lost focus, hope or purpose in their life.
Probably not gonna recommend this. I listened to it twice thinking that maybe I didn't get it. No it's just a lot of confusing smoke in your eyes.
There's no ending or a beginning really. But if I had to tell you then I'm say I was waiting for something epic and was let down.
Absolutely, sometimes you need to put yourself in check and recognize your behaviors and this is a fun and quick listen.
The humor, it didn't feel like a sappy self help book.
The idea of going pro, of putting the time in every day even if nothing fruitful comes of it.
fascinating book on execution and productivity , one of the best book and recommended highly, a must read
Love reading tech & business especially when it comes in a single book.
Pressfield is a genius. I am not sure why he struggled for so many years as you will hear in this book, but it would eventually benefit you and I. This book is my favorite book of all time and I have went through them all. If you are thinking about it then stop and click the buy button. That way I can say, "I told you so"....
Yes, every couple months just to self evaluate progress & to get another drilling of this much needed to hear info.
That what ever it is you are looking to accomplish, the best way to do that is to just get started.
I teared up a couple times hearing validation that it all isn't for nothing.
Right at the top!! Destined to be a classic.
How Pressfield not only identifies what derails most creative types but also offers practical solutions to obliterate those obstacles.
That to overcome resistance in all its various forms, I have to commit (on an hourly or at least daily basis) to being a pro. Professionals do things- take actions- that amateurs do not.
If you're on the fence about getting this book- please, for your own sanity just get it. It's pretty much a masterpiece for how to break the chains of avoidance and "do your work"
