Description

The instant number-one New York Times best seller

"A must read for anyone hoping to live a creative life... I dare you not to be inspired to be brave, to be free, and to be curious.” (PopSugar)

From the worldwide best-selling author of Eat Pray Love and City of Girls: the path to the vibrant, fulfilling life you’ve dreamed of. Fantastic inspiration for the new year.  

Readers and listeners of all ages and walks of life have drawn inspiration and empowerment from Elizabeth Gilbert's books for years. Now this beloved author digs deep into her own generative process to share her wisdom and unique perspective about creativity. With profound empathy and radiant generosity, she offers potent insights into the mysterious nature of inspiration. She asks us to embrace our curiosity and let go of needless suffering. She shows us how to tackle what we most love, and how to face down what we most fear. She discusses the attitudes, approaches, and habits we need in order to live our most creative lives. Balancing between soulful spirituality and cheerful pragmatism, Gilbert encourages us to uncover the "strange jewels" that are hidden within each of us. Whether we are looking to write a book, make art, find new ways to address challenges in our work, embark on a dream long deferred, or simply infuse our everyday lives with more mindfulness and passion, Big Magic cracks open a world of wonder and joy.

Un merveilleux livre pour tous les artistes...

Un livre que tous artistes devraient lire : peintre, écrivain, musicien, photographe, etc.
Un livre à glisser entre les mains de tous... car nous sommes tous quelque part artiste dans l'âme !

Biggest Inspiration In a Long Time

Embrace your ideas, accept and have a conversation with your fear.
I didn't pre-order this book, was ready to pass on it, but then I re-watched Elizabeth's TED talk on "Your elusive creative genius," acknowledged I'd hit a roadblock in my own life, and knew, yup. This might be just what I need.
And it was mind-blowingly good.
Naturally, it's not a perfect book, but for something that's not even 6 hrs. it sure does pack a whole lot into it. You'll learn that fear goes hand in hand with creativity, but the thing to do is to take it on the journey with you but let it know it absolutely will NOT be driving.
The most enchanting concept Gilbert discussed was that the earth is inhabited by Ideas that are just waiting for humans to claim them for manifestation. Which I really feel is true. Sometimes I feel the whole goosebump prickle/brick over the head/just got an amazing idea thing, and it's off to the races. But Gilbert goes further through the entire book because creativity is a long, long process. And sometimes we let it be disheartening, sometimes we even view it as the worst, most abusive person in the world when, really, creativity values and needs us. We have the opportunity to open our very souls to wonder, and we can invite even more inspiration into our lives, when we feel stumped, by taking baby-steps of action, and by simply declaring that we enjoy our creativity--we have to appreciate what we have. Plus, gotta kick the perfectionist habit which is fear-based; the way to function best is as "the disciplined half-ass" (which is a TOTAL relief to me. The half-assed part, I'm working on the discipline...)
This book is all about living these temporary lives of ours as joyously, as vividly as possible. Go ahead. Have an affair with your creativity! Steal away with it for 15 minutes here, 15 exciting minutes there! Let's treat it like we love it!
Truly wonderful audiobook. Great prose, and Gilbert has a wonderful speaking style.
By the way? Another reviewer mentioned the lobster. I've gotta admit: It really is indeed a memorable story that'll stick with you

You Don't Need Permission ~~~

Beautiful Book--and Beautiful Narration!

Truly inspirational. So many things that Elizabeth Gilbert talks about in this book click with me from past thoughts~~maybe it's already been done, somebody already thought about it, etc. Her response is - So What? Almost everything in the world has been thought of or attempted before- but maybe never followed up on. That is not a reason to stop--because some of those ideas are still floating around out there just waiting to enter the head of someone who is ready to pick them up and complete them. She gives a unique and almost unbelievable example of this about a book she thought of writing - but didn't. However, I do believe it because I have had similar type events happen in my life - though not that extreme.

She brings to the forefront all of the reasons people have of putting off their dreams - "someday when I have a better job, get married, lose weight, make more money, live in a bigger house" and on and on. The perfect time will never come --so just do it.

Highly Recommended!

Truth and happiness

I love everything about this book. Thank you for giving us this gift. I will listen to it over and over again when fear comes calling.

I really wish she would read all her books because Elizabeth's voice is so calming. It's lika a spa for the ears as well as the mind :)

A Perspective SHIFT on Creativity

A truly enlightening experience on the creative process. Elizabeth Gilbert's words have resonated with me deeply and the soul of who I am feels lighter and less burdened to just create, just keep moving through the process and just to BE the creative being that I uniquely am.

Thank you for this amazing work, your vulnerability in your story telling and your strength in your continued inspiring journey Ms Gilbert.

It is now time for me to get back at this amazing creative process to express that which I AM.

Must read for humankind.

This book is not only a must read for creatives, but I believe for all people of all ages. It is a magical way to go about living in this world.

If more people lived in the way Ms. Gilbert describes in this book, I think we would have a much finer place to live. Certainly a more beautiful one.

We all have an inner creative in us, we just have to tap into it. By believing in "Big Magic" we can tap into our inner creative.

She gets it!

Being born a creative spirit isn't always an easy road, but Gilbert made me feel very much in good company! She says it's not a "self help" although I found it extremely beneficial and uplifting and addresses so many of those aggravating, nagging insecurities that face us all! She addresses them with bravery and candor and doesn't mind sounding a bit brash ...Old fashioned good sense and a spirit of love and commitment touches every aspect of her message! I loved this book, it made me love her, it made me love the fact I'm an artist and have never been anything else!! Bravo to you Elizabeth ! For being so tenacious and persevering enough to write such inspiring stuff!

I have strings, Elizabeth easily pulls them.

Never before have I listened to a book straight through in one day, but that is exactly what I did with this book. Never have I been so motivated to follow a path that scares the living shit out of me, but Elizabeth Did that to me. If you have a creative bone in your body, and you're wondering whether or not you should heed it's call to creative action, listen to this bloody brilliant woman.
5 stars for: no nonsense, in your face, follow your fucking dreams fantastic footwork. If you do, and we know you do, have a creative idea that needs a swift kick in its proverbial ass, Elizabeth will leave you and your idea ready to take down names and action. KaPow!!

Thank you, Elizabeth Gilbert.

Just a very bad book on creativity.

While it was moderately interesting to hear the extended story of the author's creative journey, it's a very bad book about creativity. Extremely discouraging, contradicting and somewhat crazy (I am not a fan of the new age stuff). The part where she says that you most likely won't make money from your creativity- I wanted to throw this book in her face but wait, it's an audio) . So, I'm keeping this piece of crappy literature just to know what a bad book is and how NOT to talk about creativity. Read Julia Cameron. That book is the real magic and an inspiring classic by a friendly and sane person.

Just a bit disappointing

Listening to Elizabeth Gilbert is like spending time with an old friend. She is warm, wise, and articulate. This book started off strong, but lost focus a quarter of the way through. In addition, it was quite short. It would have made a much better article for a writer's or artist's magazine.

good one for any creative mind

This was a recommendation from another photographer and I have to say it was a good one! Motivational and with good energy. Very nice voice with a good rhythm. Funny and entertaining but also quite deep.
Will give this as a hard copy to like minded friends/artists.

She loves herself and so do I

She sure has a message and at some stage it is a bit too much. On the other hand: how nice to listen to someone who has a message and an idea and the stamina to write a book about it. A good starting point is to listen her TED talk about the same topic.

Be creative despite your fears

Gilbert's new book is very encouraging to be creative and daring and it teaches us how to deal with criticism. Be it self-inflicted or coming from the world around us. A wonderful pep talk for anyone who feels stuck in realizing their dreams.

Usually I'm not a fan of (celebrity) authors reading their own books. There are professionals who tend to be better at that job. Yet as it turns out Elizabeth Gilbert has a very pleasant voice and delivers a great speech.

I have really enjoyed listening to this book!

From the first page to the last this book really inspired me. It helped me to understand that the power to achieve our dreams, or just have a interestig, joyful life, is within us and was within us from the beginning. Think of it as a variation on the Star Wars theme: 'The Force is within you.'" Thank you Liz Gilbert

An energizing book with encouragement for the soul

This book captivated me so much I finished it in only two days - I wish it would go on!
Thank you Liz, for putting into words what I had been thinking for so long. Curiosity really is a gift an I'm looking forward to develop a deeper sense for it in order to listen to whatever it wants to tell me. I love this view on life because it is extremely empowering that the most valuable things lay within oneself and don't require money. This book is also a tale of self-accountability which is an indispensable skills in order to achieve things but at the same time she gives us one more dimension to it which is extremely valuable to keep on going, let go and appreciate that we are just humans.
