it was amazing

I love this book! It's short and easy to read, but every page is full of amazing advice, inspiration, and ideas. My uncle sent this to me, and although I procrastinated on actually reading it, I finally did last night, and I'm so glad I opened it. I read it cover to cover. It's all about how creativity, originality, and genius don't just pop out of nowhere. Our ideas and work are based off of the people, places, and ideas that have influenced us. The book gave me a huge insight on how to see the world, and my own work and ideas. Being creative and original is something I have struggled with for a long time, but this book has helped me realized that I actually am, I just have to stop being afraid of using ideas from countless people who have inspired me, because I am bound to make them my own. It's also very funny, which helps.
