Review

"An entertaining 'how to' guide, "The Creative Habit" isn't about getting the lightning bolt of inspiration, but rather the artistic necessity of old-fashioned virtues such as discipline, preparation and routine."
-- Cathleen McGuigan, "Newsweek"

""The Creative Habit" emphasizes the work habits that lead to success."
-- C. Carr, "O: The Oprah Magazine"

"[An] exuberant, philosophically ambitious self-help book for the creatively challenged."

-- The New York Times Book Review

"An entertaining 'how to' guide, The Creative Habit isn't about getting the lightning bolt of inspiration, but rather the artistic necessity of old-fashioned virtues such as discipline, preparation and routine."

-- Cathleen McGuigan, Newsweek

"The Creative Habit emphasizes the work habits that lead to success."

-- C. Carr, O: The Oprah Magazine

"Twyla Tharp's amazingly plain-spoken treatise...is a frank, honest, and tough-love testament essentially arguing that art and creativity are matters of hard, old-fashioned work."

-- Sid Smith, The Chicago Tribune

"[A]s accessible, smart and eye-opening as her dance."

-- Linda Winer, Newsday

"Though its context is a choreographer's world, its principles are universally applicable and sound....It could change your life."

-- Elizabeth Zimmer, The Village Voice
