Amazing book. I am a long time fan of Joe Rogan and his podcast and he has mentioned this book a few times so I bought it. I would consider this to be essential reading for artists, especially ones that are frustrated with them selves and know they have potential to create great work. Also helped me quit smoking too.

Well written, but I it seems that I was mistaken in assuming SP's book offered practical advice and guidance on dealing with resistance. I am also left wondering why it is so highly rated? Many people appear to have benefited from reading it, and I'm obviously missing (resisting?!) the point somewhere . . . I'm not prepared to dwell on it any longer, and will return it for a refund.

A motivational book for the struggling artist.

If you find it hard to get your ideas onto the page, or your songs onto a CD then this book may help you to understand why you keep procrastinating and what you can do to overcome this inexplicable resistance to your own success.

This one and Do The Work by the same author are well thumbed copies in my library.

Left me feeling a little short-changed, and as an atheist I was disappointed to find man's genius attributed to angels, and that we are all working in the service of a god. Still, some positive messages to be taken from it - never give up, work hard, see your vision through to the end no matter what as the work is the reward, not the 'Likes' or adulation.

I devoured this book in a day it is that good! This book is by far the best book that I have read on being a writer. It should be read by anyone who considers them a writer. The author's ideas on resistance shake you to your core. Resistance is the enemy and we must beat it to be successful. Thank you Steven Pressfield

I had read some of Pressfield's other works and wanted to give this a read based on Joe Rogan's stellar reviews on multiple Podcasts. I enjoyed it but perhaps I expected too much. I was underwhelmed by the book itself but the principles within are helpful. I think the lessons within his other books such as Gates of Fire and The Warrior Ethos are much more better presented.

This is a fantastic book and is full of inspiring and motivational gems whether you are a writer, entrepreneur, creator or not. If you want to accomplish ANYTHING in your life but you're struggling to get the job done, this is the book for you.

I will admit that some of the things Mr Pressfield does say I don't entirely agree with. It is difficult to see the point behind his Hitler comment as some other reviewers have pointed out - but in general if you read it with a purpose to find the lessons that will work for you - you will get a lot out of this book. It sounds like some people reached a line they didn't understand or agree with and threw the book down and rushed to their computer to review it in a temper tantrum.

Persevere with this book. It's well worth it.

There's a lot of sense and wisdom in Pressfield's book. One of the worst habits of writers and artists is procrastination. Pressfield's remedy is to turn yourself into a writing machine and surrender to your Muse. Unfortunately, the life of the writer or artist that results seems grim and joyless in Pressfield's book. The journey of mastery of any craft can indeed be a negative experience at times but Pressfield doesn't exactly sell the destination as worthwhile either.
