    I love Eric. He's is so the opposite of pie in the sky creative advice. If you like it honest and strong, like black coffee, and you struggle with your mind and the marketplace, and above all, if you struggle to make meaning through your work, read this!! I love Eric.

    This book is directed toward those who wish to pursue a creative interest, whether professionally or as a hobby. Personally, I am not a big reader of "self help" books (just a reading preference, not a criticism) and I wondered if that was what I was getting into with this one initially. I was, however, needing to feel inspired and, so, I picked this book up at the library.

I was, however, needing to feel inspired and, so, I picked this book up at the library. I am not providing a star rating because, in reality, I only read about half of this book, as I was looking for insight from specific chapters, but I found what I did read to, indeed, be inspiring and I feel that, even though I caught myself thinking the points made should have really been obvious, the author really speaks to all of the negatives and self doubts that we allow to stall or, effectively deter us from creative pursuits. Had I more time, I would likely have continued with the book, but the reading I did was sufficient to illustrate its value to anyone who needs a kick in the creative pants.

    This book has plenty of info on what kind of actions to take to (indeed) achieve your artistic goals. I read through it fast enough. Most of the info I sort of already knew, not the authors fault of course. The book focused a bit too much on making money with your artistic goals and your creative expressions. I have no interest in this so I mostly skipped those parts.

    A wonderful read from Eric Maisel who gets into the artists and finds the way to keep making art. No matter where you are in your artist career, there is something that will you find of interest in this read. A must read for the creative types!

    Giving it three stars in no way indicates it's not a strong, readable book, because it is. Maisel gets people in action and keeps them there. Which is needed to be a successful artist.

    Eric Maisel knows how to support creating souls at their core. This book is a fine and empowering companion. These keys help shift perspective and empower creative process. Worthwhile carry-along reading to strengthen inner life and creative determination and focus.

    This book contains interesting hints for all creative folk, but is primarily and quite specifically geared toward painters; the few pages on writers weren't really worth the effort it took to reach them, must admit I did a lot of skimming.
