The War of Art is a motivational guide that can leave readers, and listeners, with a profound sense of hope for their craft. Written in a blunt, matter-of-fact manner, the War of Art helps readers realize why they procrastinate when it comes to their passions, and what they can do about.

Pressfield labels this evil form of procrastination as: Resistance. In the audiobook, Pressfield explains exactly what Resistance is, how it comes about in our daily lives, and how to be a professional and get past its burdensome temptations.

Steven Pressfield began his writing career with works like the Last of the Amazons, Tides of War, and Gates of Fire, which all received international praise from both readers and critics. While the majority of his fictional work revolves around historical battles and important times in history, Pressfield takes a more internal approach with the War of Art, and helps us see the battle waging within.

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steven | 6/8/2011

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