Review: The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks & Win Your Inner Creative Battles by Steven Pressfield

My rating: 4 out of 5

I listen to a range of podcasts (personal development, many aimed at writing, and a few for business skills) and Steven Pressfield’s War of Art kept being mentioned as influential to the many creative and entrepreneurial guests. It’s easy to see why: it gives life and personality to concepts like procrastination and creative flair, and once fully formed, these can be banished or embraced depending on how you proceed with your habits and lifestyle.

I’ve come across Pressfield’s writing before, his writers help book “Nobody Wants to Read Your Sh*t.” The writing style is the same, short, punchy sentences, but I did prefer that other one. The War of Art started to lose me towards the end, but luckily it’s short, so I enjoyed most of it 🙂
