Publisher's Summary

Could you be getting in your way of producing great work? Have you started a project but never finished? Would you like to do work that matters, but don't know where to start? The answer is Do the Work, a manifesto by best-selling author Steven Pressfield, that will show you that it’s not about better ideas, it’s about actually doing the work. Do the Work is a weapon against Resistance - a tool that will help you take action and successfully ship projects out the door.

“There is an enemy. There is an intelligent, active, malign force working against us. Step one is to recognize this. This recognition alone is enormously powerful. It saved my life, and it will save yours.” For other titles like Do the Work, visit thedominoproject.com for more information.

    "If You've Read The War of Art, You've Read This"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who hasn't read The War of Art


    What was most disappointing about Steven Pressfield’s story?

    This is a nonfiction book, so it's not about the story. It was disappointing because it was nothing new. He's already been through this material in the War of Art.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Get the guy who performed the War of Art.


    What character would you cut from Do the Work?

    n/a

    Story
    "Very similar to "The War of Art""

    I love Steven Pressfield but was a little disappointed in this book being that I had previously read "The War of Art". "Do the Work" had similar stories and was just a condensed version of his previous book.

    "The same"

    If you've read one of his books, don't ever buy one again, it's absolutely the same, and if you haven't, it's better just watch a vid about it

    "Great Listening for any new project"

    I restarted this tape immediately after finishing it. As a writer this is like a prep talk from a mentor. Just what I needed to get me writing again.

    "Great overall book"

    Even though this is specific to a creative process, the steps can apply and be implemented for any process. Good nuggets of wisdom in this book.
