SciFi and Business Productivity
This is one of those rare books that should be read regularly. Could not recommend it more highly for anyone who wants to create anything.
I ran across this book on a web recommendation in passing and figure I would give it a read.
I loved it.
I feel like this book is poorly categorized as a self help book. It reads more like a lecture from a great professor. Or like a table talk with a firm grandfather.
The strength of the orator greatly compliments the flow of thought from Stephen Pressfield. His opinions here read more like a personal journal of lifetime truths that Pressfield has observed through hard knocks and then decided to share with us.
His bluntness makes the book sink in. He writes with out any reserve or respect of persons. It's cold hard truths.
I encourage everyone to read this at least once.
Law Student/Warehouse Laborer. Dog Lover. Sports Enthusiast. I enjoy reading books on self improvement and business.
This book is definitely in my list of top 20 books.
I liked his approach to seeing the battles of a "professional." I like his depiction of making procrastination as an evil spirit/monster of some sort and then finding ways of defeating it.
If you find yourself making excuses for not getting your work done, this book is definitely for you. I listen to this book when I know I need to get things done but I am justifying not getting it done.
I actually got this book by accident. I was after the "art of war" but listened to this one instead LOL. Didnt really go into any practical advise other then "Resistance" is the devil of creation. That was the whole book summarized.

If you want to do anything in your life read this. You'll be confronted by your own resistance. If you have the courage to push through that you'll find fulfillment.
Bumped into this book by accident or serendipity, and really has changed my life in a positive manner. It's a must read for those of us that are waking up. It's a good start if you would like to kick the procrastinating habit. This is a great Tool to have in our toolbox. Great job and Thank You ,Mr Pressfield
