Book Review: The War of Art – Steven Pressfield

One of the best inspirational books about writing and creativity I have read in a long time. It may be even better then Stephen King’s On Writing.

The core tenant is the idea of “the resistance” which is the force all of us have in our brain that keeps us from creating content. Everyone faces it and only few overcome it. Its very interesting because I always knew the so called “resistance” was there just never had it spelled out and explained as well as the author does in this book.

If you are an aspiring writer such as myself or anyone trying to create on a regular basis it is a highly recommended selection. I read and enjoy MANY books but seldom do I finish one and think to myself, “I need to read that again soon.” This book was one of the rarefied few.
