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.

    Story
    "Piece of garbage with no basis in fact"
    What disappointed you about Do the Work?

    Stupid bold claims about "The Resistance" (among other things) with no scientific or even well reasoning argument as to why what he says is true. The book is full of made up claims and thus I would 100% avoid

    "BEST book on real art of manufistation!"

    I came across this book just at right time for me. Just when I was ready to quit. Now I know that it is just a part of the journey.
    Part of what is written in the book I new intuitively, but the author put everything in the right place and now the picture is complete!

    "For anyone with creative ambitions!"

    This is one of the best books on taking action ever written. it is basically the abridged version of Pressfield's, "War of Art." This book distilled down the essence of what we need to do internally to push a dream from our heads onto reality. I listen to this book at least once a year, sometimes 2 or 3 times.

    "Short but Golden"

    An absolute gem for anyone to read. I would say you should read the War of Art first, but Steven does a great job prefacing this piece with info about Resistance he mentions in the aforementioned book. Listen to this and Do the Work.

    "Awesome, Amazong, thank you! !!!!"

    This book was just what I needed to hear. For any creatives looking for inspiration to "do the work", this book gives you the "coach" your looking for to guide you through it.
