The concept of resistance was amazing...just amazing. The author's concept hit hard on doing the work, with full devotion. It's very empowering book and the narrator has done an excellent job....Read a book like this after a long time
such a great book with a potent and relevant message. naming resistance as the negative universal force and then breaking down how it arises and how to overcome it is something we all need to know if we're going to get done what it is we were born to do.
can't recommend this book enough.
listen, now, your welcome, and thanks Steve!
This wonderfully written and narrated book reveals what's really been stopping you from achieving your true passion and happiness in life. You'll see things from your own past that have stood or are currently standing in the way of you really manifesting your highest calling.
Love this book. I have this and Big Magic, and I'm totally happy with both. Different approaches to the same animal.
Pressfield goes spiritual/religious at the end, but otherwise it's quite good. The first two books are worth the price of admission, but if you aren't a religious person, or don't agree with assertions about spirituality and souls, you can stop at Book 3. From as far as I got there's little to be had past Chapter 31.

This book should sit next to "The Elements of Style" on every writer's shelf. Do not borrow this book. Own it. Steal it if you have to and read it once a year.
It will give you unique insight into what writer's block really is.
loved how he objectified procrastination as resistance. a more complete description.
I struggled with resistance for a long time but this just helps me objectify it and know that I can overcome it.
Forget excuses, stop bitching about obstacles and invent rationalizations - just get to work. The author analyzes the most common sources of distraction from your main work, the work that you love, the work that you're afraid of starting or continuing. His concept of resistance is very powerful and helps you to think about procrastination and distractions very differently
