    "too much bla bla bla"

    I got the book thinking that was one thing and wasn't, even the voice was different from the demo.

    Story
    "A nice dose of reality "

    Everything, in my opinion, made sense in this book. I could not put a finger on as to why I, as well as some people in my life, put down my ideas or made fun of my dreams saying I wasn't good enough or it was not reality. The ideas may not have been the best but I never got a chance to try them or when I was really close I stopped. Now I know why after listening to this book. I look forward to pursing my passions with less skepticism and more belief in what I'm doing is what I need to do to fullfill my deapest desires and potential. Even if it means losing some friends or family along the way and saying, " kiss my butt, resistance. I'm doing it no matter what you say or do" I know I'm living for me and not for anyone else. Even if I fail it doesn't mean I am a failure it means I'm a professional and failure comes with the territory.

    "A Must Read/Listen"

    Concise. Direct. Useful. The audiobook is the perfect listen for a medium length road trip. But don't let that throw you. You'll be thinking about the message years after. BUY IT!

    "Amazing Eye opener"

    Pressfield has a way of writing that makes me understand things at a deeper level. This piece of work was no different. Like all his other books I found myself listening to he entire audio book again and again. Great work!!

    "Practical and instantly applicable!"

    The author sidesteps his own world view in order to provide a practical guide for everybody who wants to produce consistently.

    "Waging War"

    An absolute must for any creative individual. And not just those that are in the arts. I would say this book should be read and listened to by any individual. Anyone. One of the books I always return to. Great narration performance as well. All around wonderful.
