Publisher's Summary

The Artist's Way is the seminal book on the subject of creativity. An international best seller, millions have found it to be an invaluable guide to living the artist's life. Still as vital today, or perhaps even more so, than it was when it was first published one decade ago, it is a powerfully provocative and inspiring work.

In a new introduction to the book, Julia Cameron reflects upon the impact of The Artist's Way and describes the work she has done during the last decade and the new insights into the creative process that she has gained. Updated and expanded, this anniversary edition reframes The Artist's Way for a new century.

    "great insights"

    I love this book. I put it off and got Rick Jarow's Anti-career guide first. MISTAKE! The artist way is not only for writers, artist,etc it can really be used by anyone trying to find what is really inside and what they want from life. I have listened to it over and over and keep finding little things that open different doors each time. Easy to listen to, encouraging, and fun to do practices. Jarow's Anti-career book is boring and hard to listen to. I have tried several times and always find my mind wandering away. It turns into white noise. After listening to The Artist Way, I entered my paintings into a art showing the next week! I would have NEVER done that without this book!

    "Downside of downloading..."

    I got the Artist's Way on audio. It's great except for two things...
    1) It is not separated by chapters so I can't easily get to the chapter I'm looking for.
    2) It's slightly different than the book. Seems it's a different edition than I have in book form.
    Otherwise, it was great to be able to download and listen immediately!

    "Remedy for Artist Block"

    Although skeptical at first, I gave the program a try. By the end of the first week I was seeing progress. As I worked my way through the audio program I decided to also get the physical book as a point of reference.

    I highly recommend this book to clear the cobwebs and focus your creative energies.

    "Buy the Book"

    This audiobook is an abridged version of the book and at the beginning, she states that if you want more information on the exercises, then reference the book. Why would I have bought the audiobook if I have the paper version to reference?? What a waste.

    "Incredible!"

    One of the most amazing experiences of my life! I was feeling stuck in my profession as a psychotherapist. This book, with it's deep questioning and excellent excercises has assisted me in getting unstuck and feel excited again. I'm telling everyone I know about this work. I highly recommend it!

    Story
    "So helpful to those who are blocked artistically"
    Where does The Artist's Way rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the high end


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    This is a self help book that really does help


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Artist's Way?

    The principles described


    Any additional comments?

    I am in Thailand and have her book and the follow up at home but did not bring it so I got the audio version on audible. I am here recovering from surgery for 6 months and seeking to go back to an artistic life after being a shadow artist for many years. Her book is a very real and true look at artistic philosophy and she hits the fears and doubts most artists have with a practical way to combat them. The multiple references to god are a little much but I substitute universal or artistic spirit and that works for me. I am hoping to unblock and discover a a path back to a more artistic life using her book and that in itself (the hope of that) make the book worthwhile for me ..

    Story
    "Life changing"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Artist's Way to be better than the print version?

    I think this audible addition is wonderful and listening is like being in a workshop, so yes.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This isn't really a story, but a process.


    What about Julia Cameron’s performance did you like?

    Julie Cameron presents her material in a very realistic, yet loving manner.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    The tasks, especially "morning pages" are life changing, process changing,and guide yourself to results.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a wonderful gift to give yourself! Do it.

    "Timeless"
    If you could sum up The Artist's Way in three words, what would they be?

    Dream, Inspiring, Happy


    What about Julia Cameron’s performance did you like?

    She was strait forward and able to get at the heart of what the listener wants to hear.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, I heard that we are all artists in some way or another. So many people think they cannot because they do not have a particular medium, but many of us have a creative heart waiting to be used and that is what, I believe, she is talking to.

    "a must-read to unblock your creativity"
    What did you love best about The Artist's Way?

    I do like the voice of Julia Cameron. The whole book is written in a very playful and helpful way. Following her advice I now write every day and in one month I notice the positive changes.


    Any additional comments?

    the book is around since 20 years or more and still so up to date
