The War of Art
The War of Art is a book dedicated to all of the writers who do not write, to the painters who do not paint, and to the entrepreneurs who haven’t started a business. Steven Pressfield seeks to remind everybody who feels that they have a creative streak, a good idea, or a script to finish, but still haven't got around to working on it, that it does not come down to talent - or even, a lack thereof: we all have a purpose for which we came into the world, and, in order to fulfill this purpose, we must undergo the bloodiest, most arduous, and longest battle we will ever face, to then come out victorious. This battle is fought against the Resistance: an invisible and self-generated force, which can take many forms, such as that of self-sabotage, procrastination, and victimisation. The key to staying on the right path is learning to thwart the various guises that the Resistance assumes, and to start thinking as a professional, which will put you in a position whereby you will be able to hear the voice of the Muses, and fulfill your purpose in all its power and beauty.
