To procrastinators and anyone who’s felt stumped by fear

If you’ve ever put off doing something you really wanted to do, creating something you really wanted to create, starting an exercise regime…consider reading THE WAR OF ART: Winning the Inner Creative Battle by Steven Pressfield. I finally did; it’s a Seth Godin fave rave which Red Maxwell reminded me the other day to check out, and if that’s not enough of an endorsement for you, look at these blurbs:

A vital gem . . . a kick in the ass.
—Esquire

I’ve never read a self help book that wasn’t fatuous, obvious and unhelpful. Until The War of Art. It’s amazingly cogent and smart on the psychology of creation. If I ever teach a writing course this would be one of the first books I’d assign, along with the letters of Flannery O’Connor.
—Jay McInerney, author of Bright Lights, Big Cityand Brightness Falls
