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
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!
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.
A worthwhile read to get over whatever hurdles and move towards your greatest self. No excuses; no alibis, just do the work and reap the rewards.
I enjoyed this book thoroughly having been involved in a start up for the last year this book really hit home for me. Over the last five months VERSABANDS com has shipped yet I still wait for my first significant Sale. Like the headline states I am passionate and I have nowhere else to go. Thank you Stephen press field for the story of my life. Wish me luck in my last 20 to 30 years on this earth.
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.
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.
