Someone finally tells it like it is — you can write that book, you can paint that picture, you can live your dreams. But first you've got to shatter the Resistance that's got you stymied, and that takes (you won't want to hear this) work. In The War of Art, accomplished screenwriter and author Steven Pressfield delivers a no-nonsense pep talk for creative types stuck twiddling their thumbs. He outlines the symptoms of Resistance and details a strategy to banish it. No psycho-babble. No loony tunes. Just practical and succinct advice on achieving success in your creative field. It's a good first step towards a rewarding career and happier life.
