Big Magic indeed!

There's just something wonderful about Liz Gilbert. This was my first encounter with her writings having initially dismissed Eat. Pray. Love. as (and I know I'll get stick for this) "a bit too girly". However, discovering her at Big Magic is an excellent, hype free (relatively) way to engage with her writings.

I've found them pretty inspirational and am currently writing a business plan for an arts project I'd always dreamed about. Whether it's a success or not will be anyone's guess, but I'm more comfortable with fear being along for the trip as a result of this book. It's allowed me to accept that you need to take risks to be happy when you live a creative life.

Having the book read by Liz really enhances the overall experience, after all, who better to perform the piece than the person who wrote it?

In short, listen to this book. It has the potential to be life changing!

Couldn't stop listening

Inspiring and wonderfully motivating book. Loved every bit and learnt how creativity can change our life if only we can muster the courage to follow the sign.

The most brilliant book on creative living!

Absolutely lovely concept. I have read a lot of motivational books but no one could pin point the aspects of passion and creativity that I had struggled to resolve. Elizabeth Gilbert has decoded the way to live an fulfilling creative life and I couldn't agree with her more. This book happened to me at the time when I was struggling to find direction to all the goals I have. Elizabeth's narration was so reassuring of all the ideas that the book presented it was almost as if I was listening to a friend help me out. A must read (listen in this case!) for all the creative heads out there!
