Very disappointed in this book. It was highly rated and on several top books for entrepreneurs. I didn't find it to live up to the hype.
This book came highly recommended which is probably why I was especially disappointed with it. I like another reviewer gave it two stars instead of one because it did have some bits of good stuff. But overall it felt negative and didn't ring true for me at all. If you want a good book on creativity read Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert.
I understand that Pressfield was modeling Sun Tzu's Art of War, but Tzu moves from one subject to another. Pressfield seems to repeat the same concepts over and over.
I wish I would have the Cliff Notes version.
Yes, he's awesome!
I've always known I'm a writer, but I never accepted it. Therefore inspiration and writing never came.
I was missing the formula, the key, the understanding and wisdom to comprehend why was I born a writer. Maybe I just needed someone to tell it to me in order to wake up.
This book suggested to me a new perspective on life and the real purpose of an artist, thus implementing in my psyche a new prospect of life; life as an artist the way it's meant to be done.
This is a great book for all artists, and creatives. This highlights the struggle each of has when trying to express what is within us. Love, love, love!
I've read a lot of books on n tapping into creative work, and this one, while short, had the strongest voice identifying what held me back, and how to move forward.
