This book is not for everybody, which is also why I feel strongly about recommending it.

- This book is wonderful and this doesn't really qualify as self help as much as a treatise on personal artistic and entrepreneurial endeavour at a very philosophical level. It boils down to 'quit stalling and start working' you don't need to re-read once done, you get the message or you don't.Nov 23, 2011
- Thanks for referring the book Valeria. I think I need a double speed reading course with all the things I want to read that I don't get around to.
Jay, the "quit stalling and start working" is an important message. Another one that people need is, "don't underestimate or undervalue yourself".Nov 23, 2011
- Pressfield is an exquisite writerand I enjoyed his fiction. The War of Art is a gift to anyone wishing to pursue their creative calling. As said, it is a swift kick in the procrastination pants - gets you focused and moving.Nov 23, 2011
- I don't have gurus, and I don't read self-help books. This was more like counsel from one writer to another. Didn't need the third section of the book, but he's made his point by the end of the second.is on-target. Glad you enjoyed it, Valeria. :-)Nov 23, 2011
- One I should read so maybe I can stay focused. :DNov 23, 2011
- Interesting. I read his book "The Profession" on Olivier Blanchard's recommendation Very good and almost spooky. Sometimes refers to the "NY Times-Google Company." Might check this one out too.Nov 23, 2011
