This book is delightful. I struggle with creativity: it hasn’t previously felt accessible, and never productive. Gilbert thinks that’s ridiculous.

“The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them. The hunt to uncover those jewels — that’s creative living. The courage to go on that hunt in the first place — that’s what separates a mundane existence from a more enchanted one.”

Read this if: you want to be more creative, or don’t think you can be.
