Amazon Review

In Walking in This World Julia Cameron offers a 12-week course crammed full of practical tips on how to rejuvenate the creative life. What happens when you get stuck and can't create? What should you do when you can't solve a problem or move into the next stage of goal achievement? Take a walk. Seriously. Cameron, who has already written successfully on the science of human creativity, suggests that a weekly walk helps to clear the mind, focus the energies and re-establish the priorities. Her advice is not just for artists, writers and musicians. Everyone has areas of life where creative problem solving is required. Cameron believes that getting in touch with the deep sources of inspiration will help us solve business problems, relationship problem and become more spiritual, whole and positive as individuals.

Along with the practical suggestions, on every page there are memorable quotes from creative people that support Cameron's point. While this book is practical and inspiring, like many self-help books, it is over-written and repetitious. Cameron's advice is excellent, but she could probably have made her points in half the space. Sometimes her own creativity errs on the side of cliché and sentimental excess, but despite these criticisms, Walking in This World points a way forward for those who are seeking a more meaningful, creative and spiritual way of life. --Dwight Longenecker

I read this book a long time ago but I do recall that I found it more to my taste than The Artist's Way (although I also found The Artist's Way useful at the time). I'm writing this review mostly to balance another reviewer's very negative 1 star rating. While Walking in this World did repeat some of what was in The Artist's Way I found the additional information very useful.

I won't go into specifics as it was quite a while since I read Walking in this World but I do remember being inspired by it at the time. I now find I refer more to Eric Maisel's Fearless Creating: A Step-by-step Guide to Starting and Completing Your Work of Art (Inner Work Book) but would still recommend this book if you liked Cameron's The Artist's Way and would like to read more.

If I'd not read and studied The Artist's Way and The Vein of Gold I would've given this book 5 stars. Even if the book is very good I was a bit disappointed that it wasn't as good as Cameron previous books.

Walking in this World feels like a repetition and a poor copy of The Artist's Way. The exercises are not as many and not as time-consuming as the ones in previous books. It's a light version and it's fine if you want to re-connect with your creativity and spirituality. For me it was perfect as I've been quite busy this year and it's been good going through a chapter now and again to help me get back on track.

Funnily enough each chapter has dealt with something I really needed to work on at that very moment. It's good with the constant reminders of claiming your right to solitude and support and also being protective of your work without isolating yourself totally.

Even if this book is more "passive" than The Artist's Way and Vein of Gold the essays are still well worth reading.

Julia Cameron has some interesting ideas and good self-development/self-awareness exercises. However,if you have already bought one of her books, leave well alone. This book seems to be a thinly disguised reworking of The Artists Way - and thus it has less to offer the audience than the author's bank balance.

Shame on Mr No Name for giving a measly one star to this lovely book (if he'd like me to point him in the direction of some books which are far more deserving of the one-star treatment I'd be happy to). Yes, this is very much a sequel to the Artist's Way, but it's just as delicious, thoughtful and inspiring and it has helped me greatly in many ways. I definitely recommend it. I love Julia Cameron's work and find her approach to be truly nurturing and comforting.

I bought this as a present. Time will tell if it has been useful. I took a look at it and thought it to be similar in approach to her first book The Artists Way, not surprising as it is the 2nd of 3 books to do with artistic endeavours. I think it takes the person on through the likely blocks to development of your art having got you through the hurdle of starting in book one to actually practice your art at all. I have bought the 3rd which will be another present and I hope will have more gems to help further.

I read The Artists Way by Julia Cameron, and Walking in this World can only be described as a repetition of the same ideas. I gave it away after a chapter and a half as I felt I had been here before. It is very American with American language, lifestyle and ideals. The artistic pursuits that the author refers to are not your usual run of the mill stuff. She is trying to direct her work at artistic people generally but only refers to the work of screen writers, film producers, actors, with numerous anecdotes that quite honestly I don't identify with. She does of course have extensive knowledge of these areas having worked closely with these professionals. I think that some people, perhaps most people, would find it quite hard to transfer the knowledge and ideas to their ordinary everyday creative pursuits, its a bit far removed. Underneath, she has some reasonable ideas (if I hadn't read them all before) and they could apply to anyone who is creative. Needs a little help in the wider picture in this respect to make it more meaningful to your average artist.

If you are an emerging creative professional, as student or even an established one who needs some pointers or reminders on how to keep going when you may face challenges or your work becomes a bit stale then I would whole heartedly reccomend this book to you. Its a wonderful book to dip in and out of when you need reassurance or just a reminder that there are many creative people experiencing exactly the same thing.

I'm not a religious person so I found some of the references to God a little unnecessary but it doesn't impose enough on the writing to put me off reading it on and off over the last six years. I am an emerging artist and writer and this book has kept me going whilst I was a Masters student, when noone was interested in my work, when my personal life stopped me from making good work, through my first exhibitions and when I was first published.

Cameron talks from the heart about her own creative journey and those around her and how as creative people, we must look after ourselves and keep our work in perspective.
