A wise book,
This review is from: The Career Guide for Creative and Unconventional People (Paperback)
I'm 37 so you think I would have solved the problem of what I'm going to do with my life by now.
Well it was worth reading this book, particulary as my problem is not what to do, but how to earn a good living doing it. Eikelberry is particulary good at identifying the cross you have to bear as a 'creative' person - other people have yearnings to do what you're doing, but they express that as hostility towards you. They don't have the courage to give up the day job or the dedication to make something of their aspirations.
I work as a speechwriter - and the book is packed with super quotations and inspirational messages which I can refashion for my clients. All in all a great book if you are just coming out of university or if you are just unsure what you're doing is the right thing at any age.
