    "Very helpful."

    Fascinating viewpoint. Resistance is the force we fight, call it what you will. Lots of great takeaways. Will read again.

    "Glad he took the time to write this"

    Good message. Better motivator than all the motivational speakers I've ever heard. Not the last time I'll enjoy this one.

    "This book will give you new powers"

    This book gave me the tools to fight my most powerful enemy - resistance. Now I'm winning.

    Are you someone who is fighting the inner battle every so often to get things done? The war of art gives you the tools to overpower the resistance - and helps you win every day.

    "10/10 would read again"

    I ran across this book on a web recommendation in passing and figure I would give it a read.
    I loved it.
    I feel like this book is poorly categorized as a self help book. It reads more like a lecture from a great professor. Or like a table talk with a firm grandfather.

    The strength of the orator greatly compliments the flow of thought from Stephen Pressfield. His opinions here read more like a personal journal of lifetime truths that Pressfield has observed through hard knocks and then decided to share with us.

    His bluntness makes the book sink in. He writes with out any reserve or respect of persons. It's cold hard truths.
    I encourage everyone to read this at least once.

    "It was ok"

    I actually got this book by accident. I was after the "art of war" but listened to this one instead LOL. Didnt really go into any practical advise other then "Resistance" is the devil of creation. That was the whole book summarized.

    "Love this book"

    I was very motivated after reading the war of art. So many of my prior actions now make so much more sense.

    "Fantastic read."

    If you are a human, artist or not, you need to read this book. A little esoteric at times but a really great read.

    "Confronting"

    If you want to do anything in your life read this. You'll be confronted by your own resistance. If you have the courage to push through that you'll find fulfillment.
