Замечательное начало, очень вдохновляющая и мотивирующая первая часть. Но не дожал. Либо не хватило глубины, либо автору надо было перестать повторяться и сократить материал в два раза. А в целом, сесть и ещё раз подумать, что ты делаешь, зачем ты это делаешь и не бояться добиваться своих целей - почему нет?

More a primer on how to handle rejection and criticism, this book fell short for me.

"I can't do this because I don't have X", or "Don't take it so personally" are things we often come across as creatives in business or in our social lives. This book is not the kind of book you read and put away. Its the kind of book you take action with. Brilliant! Motivating! Thank you Mark for sharing your stories and lessons learnt with the world.

The book has some good insghts on what resilience is and on how you can buid a resilient behaviour, has a very promising start and it's well written.

However, it lacks depth and sometimes it's more about the author's opinion and experience than facts or science.

Still a book worth reading, but could be better.

All professionals in the creative field, like writers, painters, dancer etc. should read this book. Becuase this field is full of critiques. Overcoming criticism is very important for people to succeed in these fields.

Interesting but not enough

What can I say... it didn't captured my attention. Some interesting points, but I was expecting more. The recurrence to zen mysticism was not compelling. Good effort though.
