Summary

This is a summary on The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battles by Steven Pressfield.
A succinct, engaging, and practical guide for succeeding in any creative sphere, The War of Art is nothing less than Sun Tzu for the soul. What keeps so many of us from doing what we long to do? Why is there a naysayer within? How can we avoid the roadblocks of any creative endeavor - be it starting up a dream business venture, writing a novel, or painting a masterpiece? Steven Pressfield 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. The War of Art emphasizes the resolve needed to recognize and overcome the obstacles of ambition and then effectively shows how to reach the highest level of creative discipline. Think of it as tough love... for yourself. Whether an artist, writer or businessperson, this simple, personal, and no-nonsense book will inspire you to seize the potential of your life.

Dissolves resistance like magic powder

With a clever play on the classic title : The Art of War , this book helps us overcome procrastination in an original and inspiring way . I bought it initially to motivate me to write; it actually helped me to lose three and a half stones at the gym. It's key advice , I feel, is to adopt a professional
attitude towards whatever you do.

who is policing the length of the audio?

The book is fantastic! this brief snippet is useful but should be free!
The audio quality is fine, it's just a snippet of the book.

THIS IS A SUMMARY

What did you like best about The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battles by Steven Pressfield: Book Summary? What did you like least?

Nothing wrong with it as a summary but I saw the correct cover of the book I was searching for the Audible book on and clearly didn't read closely.

Any additional comments?

While this summary and the reader's voice were just fine I really think the artwork could be edited to have Summary showing. I had no intention of purchasing the summary.

What's with these summaries?

I really don't understand the purpose of these summaries. This is the second time I've wasted money on a summary of a book that I wanted to actually listen to. I know it says "Book summary" at the back there, but why would I as a customer have to be looking out for "fake" versions of the book? When I'm searching AND PAYING for something I'm excited about I should simply be assured that I'm getting the real thing. A half hour reading of a summary isn't worth anything, and it SHOULD NOT BE on the same list as the actual book, as if it even compares in any way! It's just total bullshit and in my opinion just a way of tricking people into buying shit they don't want. Really bad customer service.Just put these shitty little summaries somewhere else please.
