The War of Art

This is a classic book about creativity, resistance that arises, defeating resistance, and inspiration. It's a practical, short, and easy read. Most of the book focuses on procrastination and avoiding creative output, so if you've struggled with this, you may find this inspirational.


These are entirely subjective, and roughly try to capture my personal enjoyment and usefulness, and how likely I'd recommend it to others. Don't read too much into this unless you love my judgement. Rough guidelines:

A: Top quartile. Changed the way I think about something.

B: Worthwhile. I took away something useful.

C: Didn't hit, wouldn't directly recommend. Likely won't revisit.
