Read from June 13 to 15, 2012

Good information, most of it repeated from The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks & Win Your Inner Creative Battles. Pressfield's enthusiasm is contagious, but I was annoyed by his tendency to oversimplify the creative process. Your friends and family are you enemies! Except when they're your friends! Don't think, act! But then, sometimes, stop and think! Really? Anywhere else this kind of talk would make me crazy, but somehow Pressfield wins you over. Because he really believes it, I guess. And because the book is also riddled with really helpful practical advice. Go ahead and read it. If you've already read The War of Art, feel free to skim it. If you're waiting for some new revelations about the Dragon of Resistance, they aren't in here.
