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.

    "Unsurpassed"

    I just listened to Mr. Pressfield's book for the 12th time. For creators trying to put something out there for the world or anyone trying to accomplish a difficult goal, there is nothing better. Bravo...again.

    "Stephen Pressfield is the creator's new personal hero!"

    And by creator, I don't mean God almighty, but all us grunts here on the planet, creating with a small C. I'm not alone in thinking so. Screenplay guru, Robert McKee, author of 'Story', wrote a brilliant introduction to Pressfield's first book about creator vs. resistance, 'The War of Art'. Seth Godin was so impressed with the book that he tracked Stephen down so that he could help publish this book: 'Do the Work'.

    This book is short, and all the more powerful for it. In reading/listening to it, anyone set on creating anything will gain new insight into their creative process, and walk away with practical and immediately applicable skills to complete and ship the object of their love.

    Do yourself a favor and get the audiobook version. Pressfield is a brilliant narrator and brings his book to life in a way that made me smile and chuckle and laugh and cry.

    Is it worth the price of admission? Hell yes. (oops - sorry, God!)

    "Just recycled thoughts from War of Art"
    What was most disappointing about Steven Pressfield’s story?

    This felt like a phoned-in after thought to Pressfield's excellent War of Art. There is very little new material, with most of it being recycled from War of Art. I also felt that it was horribly mis-priced considering that it is under two hours long.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Steven Pressfield?

    Yes.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I am so disappointed with this book that I am seriously thinking about returning it.

    "Simply applicable"

    How could I not apply the readings of this book to my everyday life. Steven has given me the perspective I have been seeking to over come procrastination.

    "Authentic, Author-Narrated. Not Overdone."

    Worthwhile follow-up to The War of Art.

    I start my project today, and when I need some support, I will get the print version to have on hand.

    I have a local library copy by my side now, as I walk into my temporary workspace in my church basement office.
    Wish me luck.

    "Yes, Do the Work"
    Where does Do the Work rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Short, blunt, and full of inspiration. I'll listen to it again.


    Any additional comments?

    If you're looking for something to inspire you, to get you off your rear, this book is a must.
