This is one of my favorite books that covers the creative process. It perfectly puts into words the common psychological challenges creative people face. Overcoming resistance (often times this is procrastination for me) and acting like a "pro" in what ever you are trying to do are two key ideas I have carried with me since my first listen.
Excellent narrator and wonderful story! Recommend this for all creatives and entrepreneurs who need a kick in the pants to make a change.
Lost me at chapter 1! I was so looking forward to listening to this book. Was recommended by some friends. Quickly became apparent how the author lacked credibility on the subject when he began stereotyping certain groups of people in prejudicial manner. Having previously been active in some of those groups, I could not believe an author could get away with poor scholarship maligning people of other cultures. No respect for diversity was a problem but the author based the premise of his thesis on this faulty foundation. Disgusted, I tried to listen and get something good but the more he went on, the worst his biases colored his writing in nonsensical format. Had to stop by chapter 1 and return the book!
Deliver on creative premise without starting with a closed mind that attacks diversity of culture and various viewpoints.
This book contains a very concise distillation of deep wisdom and understanding. Read it.this is one of the top 10 books out of the last 200 audiobooks I have listened to.
