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.
It does reinforce the same platitudes of hard work, open mindedness, and embracing change that are ubiquitous in these kind of books.
She had a good quote about the universe being prodigal in its assistance while we are miserly to accept it.
She was fine as an orator.
No. I was insensate.
My biggest gripe was the litany of "homework" assignments that the author foists upon the reader. Just too much of that. It stressed me out just thinking of all the things she suggested. If you want real motivation I recommend The War of Art instead.
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.
In the high end
This is a self help book that really does help
The principles described
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 ..
