Back to Book List

The War of Art is a wonderful book. I heard a lot of good things about this book from various sources. I was not disappointed.

The main outcome for me was that I actually started writing. The arguments author provided were very motivational. The structure of the book makes you want to keep reading it, even id you hate reading it. I was so consumed with the book that I did not amke any notes, it just flew by me. I will revisit this book, or some specific sections, shortly and will be sure to highliht and share my favourite parts!

I certainly recommend it to anyone who feels that they are not doing what they want to. There should be nothing stopping you.

TL;DR

In each one of us sits an evil force, called Resistance. This force is powered by ego and will do everything to keep things the way they currently are.

This book will show you what Resistance is and just from knowing your enemy you will have much better odds of defeating it. To help you do that, author provide you with the most effective tools to deal with the evil force that keeps you from writing, painting or doing whatever your heart desires (what you were meant to do).
