    Internationally best-selling author of Last of the Amazons, Gates of Fire and Tides of War, Steven Pressfield delivers a guide to inspire and support those who struggle to express their creativity. Pressfield believes that “resistance” is the greatest enemy, and he offers many unique and helpful ways to overcome it.

    If you could sum up The War of Art in three words, what would they be?

    Get to Work. A motivational bit of prose to help you tip toe around your own self sabotage.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Steven Pressfield? Why or why not?

    Likely not, in that by the author's own admission he is primarily a writer of fiction and this work was more of a one off. The autobiographical nature of the book is what attracted me to it.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    He has a very clean and crisp delivery; his mature voice was the perfect cast to share an artist's reflections on his own career in procrastination.

    Story
    (1194)

    No skill is more important in today's world than being able to think about, understand, and act on information in an effective and responsible way. What's more, at no point in human history have we had access to so much information, with such relative ease, as we do in the 21st century. But because misinformation out there has increased as well, critical thinking is more important than ever. These 24 rewarding lectures equip you with the knowledge and techniques you need to become a savvier, sharper critical thinker in your professional and personal life.

    Jason says: "Clear thinking is valuable beyond measure!"
    "Not for those looking to improve themselves"

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Individuals looking for reaffirmation of their skepticism of, or those looking to walk out from the shadows of pseudo-science.


    What was most disappointing about The Great Courses’s story?

    There is no skill building here. The book lays out the world as the author (and for the most part the scientific community at large) sees it; but provides nothing for the reader that can be used to build on their existing critical skill set. An individual struggling to shake off belief in the existence of Bigfoot may find this book useful; but if you are a professional looking to add something to your toolkit with regards to your own critical thinking process, the author has nothing to offer you. Don't waste your time.
