I love to read about other artists' creative processes and routines, so I knew I would enjoy this one. But Tharp brought so much more to the table. The book is full of exercises and suggestions for anyone to add more creativity to their lives and more spine to their art. I took thorough notes and expect to be using some of these tips immediately.

This book woke me up on several levels. Twyla shares stories from her very active and creative life in an inspiring and entertaining manner. Reading it made me really ponder on what ignites my passions, and gave me great ideas for how to take the leap from reading to action.

Product details 256 pages Simon & Schuster - English 9780743235273 Reviews:
"Review" by , "[An] exuberant, philosophically ambitious self-help book for the creatively challenged."
"Review" by , "The Creative Habit emphasizes the work habits that lead to success."
"Review" by , "Though its context is a choreographer's world, its principles are universally applicable and sound....It could change your life."
"Review" by , "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."
"Synopsis" by , What makes a person creative? It's not just a dilemma for artists, or aspiring artists. Creativity enters into so many facets of everyday life — deciding what meal to cook, constructing a persuasive memo, or imparting knowledge to a child. In this straight-forward and life-changing book, Twyla Tharp shares the overriding lesson learned during her remarkable thirty-five-year career: creativity is not a mystery. It is not a gift from on high. It is the product of hard work and preparation, of knowing one's aims and one's subject, of learning from approaches taken in the past. Creativity is a habit, and it is within everyone's reach. The Creative Habit is both personal and practical, combining anecdotes from Tharp's life with easy and effective exercises that she uses when facing a creative rut. This inspiring, encouraging guide will show every reader — from the author facing a bad case of writer's block, to the business person looking to secure a deal — how to achieve his or her fullest creative potential.
