Eh, I didn't really like it... I feel like I couldn't relate to it.. It seems like it's written for people who don't do art but want to... I'm someone who does art because it's what I -do- and it's what I've always done... no amount of deterrent is going to make me stop doing it... but I thought maybe it would address a little bit about how to get into the world of being a successful artist... instead it spends more time telling you all the ways that won't make you successful. I felt like it was rather pessimistic, and overly opinionated in a we're-right-and-you're-just-misguided-if-you-disagree sort of way.
