This is the 109th PhilosophersNote I’ve created.
Up to this point, I’ve made a lot of strong recommendations on books I think you’d love but I’ve never said you *must* read a particular book.
I’m gonna break that streak here.
If you’re a creative person, you need to read this book. It’s that good. And, when I say “creative person” I mean anyone who’s committed to creating an authentically awesome life. (And, given the fact that you’re reading this Note, my hunch is that clearly means YOU!)
As the author of The Legend of Bagger Vance and a number of great best-selling novels (my favorite beyond Bagger Vance is Gates of Fire—an incredible portrayal of the classic Spartan warriors), Steven Pressfield knows what it’s like to create. He has an extraordinary way of capturing the challenges we face in the War of Art—along with the means by which we can overcome those obstacles (or, as he calls it “Resistance”). Powerful stuff.
So, get the book. I *promise* you’ll thank me. :)
The book is essentially one awesome Big Idea after another. Super easy-to-read. Super inspiring. Let’s look at a handful of my favorites, shall we?
