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!
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!
Live and die with no regrets
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.
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.
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!
LOVED, LOVED LOVED. If you are a artist who feels blocked and it is affecting your craft. The Artist Way is the book for you. Julia Cameron will masterfully guide you through simple mental exercises that will help you unblock the creative process inside. IT WORKS!!!!!
Dream, Inspiring, Happy
She was strait forward and able to get at the heart of what the listener wants to hear.
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.
My daughter-in-law I bought this for me, and I have the hard copy as well. I also took a class on creativity, and now my attention is totally drawn to this book!
I have been longing to rekindle a relationship with my ex of almost 2 years. I've never been an artist and a devoted lover as well. I failed at my attempt and this book helped me understand why. I wasn't expressing my creativity enough and it turned me into a caged animal in more ways than one. You have to let your inner creative child have time to exercise or they will break all that you care about until you see the issue. The relationship and this book have helped me see the light and I've been painting more than ever before. I might be able to be what I once was to my ex but I will never let myself cage my creativity. I have to let it live or I die inside basically.
