1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap, Tiny and thoughtless, 5 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Steal Like An Artist (Paperback)
Seriously?? What a waste of money!

Firstly, the book is tiny. Like fit in the palm of your hand tiny. The printing is all low end black and white. The whole thing just looks and feels like a cost-cutting excercise.

The content is equally aweful. A whole page with the printed words 'marry well' and then a following page explaining why you should do that. A whole page with the printed words 'enjoy your work' and then a following page saying why. My gran gives me more insightfull advise...

The book just feels like a project cooked up in an evening to scam some money. It feels cheap, tiny and thoughtless.

I love the way you spelled 'aweful' - makes a nonsense of the rest of your comments, though - a freudian slip perhaps? My grandchildren, my children and I have all read the book and taken bags full of good stuff away from it.

The instant nature of your response casts doubt on if you are a genuine customer or not. Also, you seem to have no idea what Freudian slip means, or how to use capitals correctly.

I've been with top PR firm Burson-Marsteller for 2 years and during that time I was fortunate enough to receive top notch creativity training from then global head of creativity, Andy Eckland. He showed me creativity can be learned, and learned well. This book, however is a thoughtless handful of glib phrases your granny would tell you (or in your case 'grandfather') - "Always have a hobby". Any serious artist would consider this book insulting.

"excersise" "aweful" "insightfull" and "advise" - not so sure creativity is such a good thing when it comes to spelling!
