Author's voice is a little hard to stay in tune with. Not bad, just a little too monotone for what I like it. I would lose concentration. Great content in the book.
1st half is straight genius. Among the best things I have read about the internal struggle.
The second half is bat sh!t crazy. Oozes new age nonsensical babble. I want to believe he is just illustrating spirituality and God poetically but it is all over the place.
To be fair I believe in God and am A Christ follower and perhaps that makes it more crazy to me..but really it is sorta cult like.
Read the first half..once it gets crazy shut it off.
Stuck On Books
This is a refreshing take on procrastination of any kind. I am not your typical procrastinator however, this book still applies. I am changed. Thank you Steven.
I compare this book to Napoleon Hill's "Outwitting the Devil". What Hill calls the devil, Pressfield calls 'resistance'. Incredible concept.
I did not like Guidall's performance. I felt someone younger should have read the book. Sorry George.
The idea of resistance being the enemy of us all. Also, I must honor my muse self.
Loved this book. Thank you!
Since Change is the only constant, Growth is change and change is good! I'm constantly seeking new books so I can feel good about changing!
Loved it...Listened 2x already. .it's my motivation when resistance tries to strike! The narrators tone may put you off at first but he is hilarious in his delivery! If you're into any of the "Arts" or trying to push past your comfort zone and elevate in ANYTHING there is going to be resistance. ..but there will also be ASSISTANCE! THIS BOOK IS GREAT AND HELPED ME OUT SO MUCH!
easy and motivating listen and the perfect narrater i would recommend it to anyone to listen
This is a must read for all artists, entrepreneurs, & anyone wanting to create anything and actually manifest it in the world. Steven Pressfield cuts through the crap identifying what stops us from living our dreams and boldly tells us the keys to overcoming.
If it wasn't for John Joseph and Rich Roll I would've never found this brilliance. The War of Art definitely is the map that will guide you to that Positive Mental Attitude within. Resistance I learned is everything but The War of Art has my back and yours by pointing out that very thing inside us all " Resistance " ! Now we see our enemy as we move forward towards fear and through our fears !
