I was assigned this book in art class. I was a little turned off because the title isn't very inspiring, but I ended up really liking it because it describes an artist's daily life so well. It reminds me about what's important about being an artist--the simple, humble task of going into your studio day after day--rather than inflating the artist's life into some grandiose thing that it's not. It also reminds me that there are other artists out there. It's pretty inspiring after all.
I would recommend this book, with reservations, to artists who like career books. There are lots of unique lessons to learn from Henson's successful career. However, at times it feels like a superfan's uncritical Henson biography packaged as a career book. And I would've liked a narrator with better pronunciation.
