    "Self Analysis Activating"
    What did you love best about The War of Art?

    I liked how it wasn't a checklist of must does


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration tended to drone on a bit making it easy to zone out while listening.


    Any additional comments?

    I found the book very helpful but I suggest listening to it in chunks since it can all start to blur together if you listen for a long time.

    "Good Inspirational Reminders"

    The book uses a frame that helps you to see how to get to work and remain consistent. Most of his philosophies I already live by. The fresh way of looking at them is new file for my fire.

    I'm not as tolerant of his way of looking at the work of angels but do understand his intention.

    "Gold."

    was confused by the talk of literal muses and spirituality as I am an athiest but most of it, when it wasn't repetitive, was beautiful and moving.

    "A wake up call"

    Stunningly inspirational. This book is entirely unsettling but in the best kind of way. Everyone should read this book especially if you're an artist of any kind. Certainly not the only time I'm going to listen to this.

    "Steven Pressfield is the Man!"

    This is the battle cry for anyone who has a gift they are yearning to share with the world BUT keeps getting held up by their own fear, self doubt, or Resistance.
