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.
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.
Years of succumbing to that resistance taught the author one thing, that resistance must be fought at all costs to the bitter end. I found this book incredibly insightful. It brought to light my own battles with resistance and somehow gave me new found courage to face the long war ahead.
This book now has a well deserved place on my 'must reads' shelf.
