    " This book has a great deal of intellectual concepts that are practical, concise, and evoke emotional personal connection to habits and behaviors that hold us back. In addition it’s incredibly inspiring and when finishing, I am full of excitement, hope, and fortitude to be committed, to be a professional, to do my work I was born to do and encourage others to do the same! "

    " This book helps you see the impact of "resistance" has on the artist and how to fight it. Goes into what makes the difference between the "pro" and the "amateur" based on how each reacts to the same circumstance. Definitely helped me see a new way to think about my artistic provess and do what I can to keep improving Ahmed moving forward. "

    " This worked for me. I got where he was coming from, I could totally relate, and the 2-3 weeks after I read this were some of the most productive I've had in the past year. Probably time for a re-read. "

    " Do you ever get writer's block or feel like avoiding or procrastinating from things you should be doing? This is the book to read to help you push through your own internal resistances. This is a quick read and a nice reminder that you can overcome any barriers that comes your way. "

    " It all goes a bit mystical in the third part of the book. But the earlier stuff about Resistance is very good, really spoke to me. I'm on the lookout for resistance everywhere now. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Skye | 6/8/2011

    " The tone of The War of Art is mildly condescending and I found Pressfield's ideas to be oversimplified. However, one of his main ideas: "nothing else matters except sitting down every day and trying," at least felt accurate to me. "

    " Excellent book. A must read for every aspiring artist and professional. "
