    "Good overall point. Flaky philosophy"

    Try not to get bogged down in the actual details of what he's saying and instead get the overarching point. If you don't throw out the baby with the bathwater you'll find this book inspiring

    "The truth is in this book"

    This book is so very accurate and just honest. Everything currently happening, and not happening in my life, this book has opened my eyes brightly to my truth, and energized me, for my fight against resistance. Also, the narrator, was awesome!

    "For anyone afflicted by procrastination"

    I like to see this work as motivating writers for increased production. The author makes it clear that it also applies to other areas of human endeavor. Best motivational book I have ever heard.

    Story
    "Turn Pro"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The War of Art to be better than the print version?

    It could be but I liked how the sarcasm and enthusiasm came from the audible version.


    What other book might you compare The War of Art to and why?

    Extreme Ownership


    Which scene was your favorite?

    turning pro


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Turning pro is all about transition from and amateur or part timer to a full time pro. That mental shift I found very rewarding. What are your actions representing? Are you working like a pro or amateur? Are you making art? Hiding from your critics or embracing them. It's all about doing the work and overcoming the resistance.
