You think you're a bad writer? Shut up and write. You're tired and your back hurts? Shut up and write. You want a banana split sprinkled with success and dreams? Shut up and write.

— Rachel

This is the only motivational book I've ever read that a. I finished b. I re-read c. I'll probably read again. It's a little bit more of a slap across the face sort of wake-up call rather than your normal "you can do it" approach. It's direct, useful and honest.

— Jeremy

Description


A succinct, engaging, and practical guide for succeeding in any creative sphere, The War of Art is nothing less than Sun-Tzu for the soul.

What keeps so many of us from doing what we long to do?

Why is there a naysayer within? How can we avoid the roadblocks of any creative endeavor-be it starting up a dream business venture, writing a novel, or painting a masterpiece?

Bestselling novelist Steven Pressfield identifies the enemy that every one of us must face, outlines a battle plan to conquer this internal foe, then pinpoints just how to achieve the greatest success.

The War of Art emphasizes the resolve needed to recognize and overcome the obstacles of ambition and then effectively shows how to reach the highest level of creative discipline.

Think of it as tough love . . . for yourself.

Whether an artist, writer or business person, this simple, personal, and no-nonsense book will inspire you to seize the potential of your life.
