“To labor in the arts for any reason other than love is prostitution.”
– Steven Pressfied
I recently finished The War Of Art written by Steven Pressfield.
I can honestly say that it was one of the most impactful books I have ever read.
No matter what you believe, what religion or follow -or don’t follow- there is a tremendous amount to gain from all 165 pages.
It was the kind of book where you didn’t want to put it down. Not because of the suspense or the drama in the book, but purely because I wanted to learn more. I have read and reread countless different parts throughout the past month.
I tend to be the person that likes to keep their books in mint condition, no food smears, no writing, no folding pages. This book was different though, I got a few pages in and thought “Screw it, I have to write in this book.” I have to save my thoughts and feelings.
The knowledge that is shared and that you gain from this book is almost overwhelming. There is so much but simultaneously you cannot stop yourself from reading more of it. It doesn’t matter what phase of life you are in, or what area of your life you want to pursue.
This book can impact everyone. From a ten-year-old child in elementary school to a retired ninety-year-old grandpa. There is something for all.
Overall, I truly cannot suggest it enough. Do yourself a favor and get this book.
