5.0 out of 5 stars Supplies: A Pilot's Guide to Creative Flight 14 May 2001
By C. Stephen Foster - Published on
This book is required reading for anyone who has used Julia's former books to actually create works of art! In this manual for creative flight she describes all the monsters that leap up in your face as you prepare to fly and the ones that try to wreck your creative projects. She speaks in a no nonsense, humor-filled tone--She cuts to the bone about those devils who tempt us to flirt with them instead of concentrating on our creative careers. Not only does she break them down into horrifying, simple catagories, but she teaches us how we can wave a magic wand and dispell the curse of these people. This book is a true gem for any creative artist. Buy it immediately.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cameron's other titles are more useful to you as a writer 24 Feb 2005
By GreenEggs-N-Ham - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Julia Cameron's books are the only companions that keep me from feeling stuck and isolated in a writer's life. "The Artist's Way" and "The Sound of Paper" are fixtures on my bedside table because she's truthful, sensible, and uplifting. ...And that's why I'm disappointed in this book. It falls very short of the mark.

True, in its pages you will recognize all those people who hem you in or hold you up. But you will perhaps also recognize what I did: deep bitterness. I'm 3/4 through the book and have been almost stunned at all the examples of, asides about, and ungloved swipes at movie industry people. Other blocking personalities are treated with a bit of remove and wry humor. But when JC launches on the movie-industry-specific examples, her venom and bitterness seep through. That flaw discredits whatever [thin] usefulness I might previously have found. I hate to say this, but I'm glad I bought it used rather than new.

5.0 out of 5 stars Supplies for the Muse 18 May 2005
By Lola Jovita - Published on
Cameron's latest delight is the latest in blunt and witty guideposts for a creative thriving life. When we live to create it is our muse whose our own best friend. Protect it and nurture it - how? Enter Supplies from Cameron. A concoction of advice, strategies, and common toolkits to keep our artistic souls pure and our muse shielded from the various Crazymakers out there. Must have!

1.0 out of 5 stars A waste of time 30 Jan 2008
By Carol Berger - Published on
The excerpt on Amazon was interesting, so I bought this book. I am sorry thatI did. I started to be worried when I read in the Introduction by Cameron that "Each one of my books is carefully aimed to reach a certain target and take a certain trajectory. Having said that, welcome to Supplies - which is a deadly serious, humorous book aimed squarely at those embattled, and nearly embittered, survivors of the creative trenches." The back cover states that the book "shows readers how to cope with the nitty-gritty of being a successful artist," but at the same time it states that "this book is a must-have for any aspiring or working artist." As an "aspiring" artist, I found very little in the book helpful. It is cleverly written, but the thinly-disguised bitterness and sarcasm Cameron expresses in her writing is not "humorous" as she self-describes the book in her Introduction - humor lacks the nastiness, venom, and negativity that clearly comes through. Her writing exercises might be helpful, but they are so in opposition to the rest of the book as to make me wonder if Cameron is bipolar. Very early on in the book, I wondered what the point of it was. So much of it seems "insider" stuff. Underneath it all, it seems to just be an excuse for Cameron to whine about her bad experiences in becoming rich and famous. This book is just too personal - I got the feelings that she would have loved to name names - and self-indulgent. I was really put off by her attitude. Okay, so it's a jungle out there - we all know that already. Cameron seems to act as if she's the only one who knows that. I don't think it was worth writing a book on. By the way, I can't figure out why this book is called Supplies, and I STILL don't know after having forced myself to finish it because I paid for it!

1.0 out of 5 stars The Wheels are off the Wagon 13 April 2008
By Mary N. Bucklew - Published on
Whoa, Julia!!! Was this whipped off in one of your manic states during your celebrated breakdown chronicled in Floor Sample?

This book reads like the frenzied paranoid ramblings of someone trapped in a corner. In fact, it reads more like fiction than self-help.

Having enjoyed following Julia from her breakout success of Artists Way, being witness to her breakdown is very disheartening, and I'm ashamed of Jeremy Tarcher for exploiting her by publishing this private very personal rant.
