Resistence kept me too long to write a review to this book.This book is divided into 3 parts.Book 1 Get out of your comfort zone Here you ll find the real reason why you procrastinate It s a bully that keeps us from achieving our highest potential the worst of it it lives inside of us In this book it s called resistence.Book 2 Get the right attitude Pressfield provides here a powerfull and for most of us a life changing range of mindsets to develop Here he labels it as the Professional Mindset If this sounds to far fetched I personal see it as get YOUR THINKING CLEAR and commit to your calling Powerfull only if it is applied.Book 3 Metaphysics of the arts In this segment Pressfield explains the metaphysical aspects of any art.Invisible forces everyone can notice but labels it differently and work with.Get the book, read it, read it again.Get crazy about this book as he says in the beginning of the book And unless I m crazy, you re no closer to taking action on it than you were yesterday or will be tomorrow And if this sound alot like you, you should get it.You want to become an artist Here is a good way to get started. Great book, I used it to get going with my work in acting, and it have helped me tremendously I also gave it as a gift to two of my friends One of them a musician, the other one a writer And I m going to give it to another friend who is an actor When i am procrastinating, I just open the book and reread a few lines and i can get started. I bought this one on recommendation expecting something different And I sure got it.The first two books in the book kind of make sense, even though the author is the king of making up garbage and espousing his ancient and narrow minded views to serve his narrative.In the third book he goes off the waggon completing the impression of man who thinks that all artists are servants of the heavens, insert esoteric views here.2 10 would only recommend to someone who I think likes wasting money and time. This book isn t just useless but also harmful It tells you that all problems exist because people do not express their creativity So if everybody would do creative stuff we wouldn t need medical doctors because being sick is just your way to get cheap attention This is so disrespectful I am actually speechless So let s move on He also suggests that it was easier for Hitler to start world war II than to face a blank canvas WTF Ok, let s also let it go Oh you have mental health problems Don t worry most of them were just invented by psychologists doctors so they are not real at all Don t you feel better already You re just too lazy to do your creative stuff, shame on you The only existing advice in the book is sit your ass down and do your thing There now you can save yourself not just the money for the book but the high blood pressure and angry yelling that it will induce And I didn t even read the very last esoteric bs part because I just couldn t take it any. Think of The War of Art as tough lovefor yourself Since , The War of Art has inspired people around the world to defeat resistance to recognize and knock down dream blocking barriers and to silence the naysayers within us Resistance kicks everyone s butt, and the desire to defeat it is equally as universal The War of Art identifies the enemy that every one of us must face, outlines a battle plan to conquer this internal foe, then pinpoints just how to achieve the greatest success Though it was written for writers, it has been embraced by business entrepreneurs, actors, dancers, painters, photographers, filmmakers, military service members, and thousands of others around the world Beim Lesen wird es keineswegs langweilig, denn das Buch ist nicht nur uerst motivierend, sondern auch interessant zu lesen.Es gibt hilfreiche Tipps, den inneren Widerstand zu berwinden und die eigene Kreativitt auf ein neues Level zu heben Hat mir sehr gefallen Das Buch hat meine Erwartungen ich hatte die Hoffnung ber meine Blockaden kreativ zu sein, etwas zu finden voll erf llt Es sind sehr hilfreiche Beschreibungen, Der Hauptpunkt, Widerstandwie er sich zeigt, was ich tun kannIch mag das total.Es gibt einige Buchtitel die vor dem Buch ver ffentlicht wurden, die mir auch gefallen.Vielleicht reicht aber dieses um anzufangenIch habe schon angefangen, f llt mir ein Dabei bleiben A quick read that I keep reading over and over again.Helps to look at the creative process from a different point of view.Rather than wait for inspiration to hit you from out of now where.Get down in the trenches and fight for you creativity.Show up everyday and put in the work and beat the resistance. Not good Rambling, socially conservative, very religious I made it forty pages and then gave it to a charity shop. Would give zero stars if I could A narrow minded author that makes alot of RIDICULOUS claims without anything to back it up Actually angered me A wishy washy badly constructed book that preaches about religious views throughout and makes extremley irrational claims that certain mental health disorders have been made up by marketing companies etc.
