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!

    "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.

    "What can I say it's a classic"

    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!

    "Breakthrough the break up!"

    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.
