    "Creative Fire"

    I really enjoy the freedom of listening to the book as opposed to reading. This format suits me in that I can work on my digital artwork and listen/explore my inner psyche - which is what art is about. Clarissa Pinkola Estes has been a favorite author of mine since reading "Women Who Run With The Wolves" years ago. That singular book shaped my ideas of my self and women's lives considerably. This book, "The Creative Fire," further serves to inform my deep longing to make friends with my shadow self, with stories and myth. I highly recommend this book to any type of artist who wants to remove creative blocks, and understand how they got there in the first place.

    "great listen"

    This book is for anyone interested in the creative process and understanding it in more depth. The author weaves myth and storytelling to create a magical and inspiring study of the life of creativity.

    "Not helpful"

    I didn't find this helpful at all. I was looking for inspiration and motivation, but it was a lot of ancient stories as allegories to what can go wrong in the creative process. No solutions. If you're into ancient myths it might be for you.

    "Poetry"

    I really loved this book and the narrators vioce, I will listen to this again.



    I would however also say that it might not be everyones cup of tea, so I would recomend listening to the sample before purchasing.
