Description

Think of The War of Art as tough love...for yourself.

Since 2002, The War of Art has inspired people around the world to defeat "resistance"; to recognize and knock down dream-blocking barriers and to silence the naysayers within us. Resistance kicks everyone's butt, and the desire to defeat it is equally as universal. The War of Art identifies the enemy that every one of us must face, outlines a battle plan to conquer this internal foe, then pinpoints just how to achieve the greatest success. 

Though it was written for writers, it has been embraced by business entrepreneurs, actors, dancers, painters, photographers, filmmakers, military service members, and thousands of others around the world.

Too much useless information

Good idea, but can be shared in like 20 minutes max, this book is too long and filled with air in my opinion.

The concept of work vs. resistance is pure gold

The concept of work vs. resistance is pure gold. From a business perspective (creative production and delivery) it makes this book a must-read for any entrepreneur.

The exploration of the "muses" might appeal to purely artistic and creative types. Maybe not so much for a business person.

The author's passionate audible delivery made the listening truly enjoyable from start to finish.

Filled with Dangerous Ideas

This book is filled with dangerous, harmful ideas, such as the thought that succumbing to "resistance" is the cause of cancer. Even ignoring that monumental flaw, this "motivational" book is severely lacking in points worth taking away - seek motivation elsewhere.

War Against Common Sense?

I tried reading the physical version of this book, but it read like a series of bullet points listed beneath a guiding topic. Listening to this book made it much easier.

But the stuff Pressfield says is really difficult to endorse. It starts off all right. Fight back against resistance. I agree. Resistance stops us from accomplishing so much. However, when he begins explaining how ADHD or anxiety disorders are not REAL--but instead the result of resistance and procrastination--I felt a bit uneasy. He cites no sources. He has no validation for these claims, but he presents them as facts which is extremely irresponsible. When he starts saying that cancer is cured by people who produce art...yeah, I checked out.

I gave the performance three stars. Pressfield reads this in an angry-ish and judgmental tone, and I think that's right in line with the tone of the text.

I'd say save yourself the time and money. You already know that procrastination hurts. Write your own list of motivational bullet points. Hey, maybe you can publish them someday.

I listened to half an hour and it already ruined my entire day

I got through about thirty minutes of this book before I couldn’t take it anymore. The central thesis is that procrastinating inhibits our long-term success and what we’re “born to do.” It sounds great in theory, but the author pads the work with superstitions, fake facts, and proselytizing.

In just thirty minutes of this audiobook, the author claimed that:
- Hitler would not have gone after the Jews if he didn’t face resistance with his art career
- Terminal and non-terminal cancer patients go into remission when they stop procrastinating on their goals
- Diseases such as ADHD, social anxiety disorder, and seasonal depression disorder are fake illnesses created by drug companies to make more money (yes, he really said that)
- If everyone overcame resistance (which is what he calls procrastination), world hunger and poverty would magically disappear, and we wouldn’t need doctors anymore.

Again, I only listened to thirty minutes, and this book ruined my entire day. Please save yourself the 1 audible credit. Don’t repeat my mistakes.

Half of it is about praising God

Most arguments are about "the sacred", "the holy" and fighting the evil "resistance"...
there was one good chapter talking about a down to earth comparison between being Pro vs being Amateur.

At least the book was short so I didn't waste too much time.

angels and demons

it was a very nice book until the point where the author decided to go from a experience and fact based storytelling to some form of esoteric and pseudo religious bullshit. Angels, Demons, the unity of all being life after death, you name it...

Heu im Nadelhaufen

Irgendwo in diesem Buch habe ich 2,3 interessante Aussagen finden können.
Dies ist mir allerdings sehr schwer gefallen, da sie umhüllt von Schwachsinn sind, der sich lediglich im Kopf des Autors abspielt.
Darüber hinaus liest der Autor aggressiv und schnell, was ich persönlich als sehr unangenehm empfunden habe.

Sadly disappointing

Tbh i had hoped for some real suggestions to her through a writers Block and the sort. Sadly the author mainly Focuses on himself and him beeing a pro everyone who Ford Not go pro basically should quit... furthermore very religious.... only Good thing i can say was the point about Not writing to sell but to Focus on what you want to write and it should sell

Worth a read.

If you don't take the many blanket statements too seriously you will find a very useful underlying message from which you can learn a great deal.

Too much relying on "God gave you"

For my taste, the author relied to much on the "God gave you your ideas" so that he put all the practices and years of hard work of every artist under the carpet or ignores it completely as if artists are just tools and nothing is of their own heart. That killed the entire potential of this book/message.

Art? More like bland christian propaganda

I was thoroughly and utterly disappointed by this book! There is not a hint of scientific knowledge to be found. No studies or research is mentioned: instead I read through many cringy pages of weird christian motives and talk about god.

To personify the inner "resistance" is a good and useful thing, but the author does not stop there but also mixes it up with christian religion. The resistance being "the sin" and the evil that wants to hold us back from the pure selves we were planned out to be by god. And that we all have a clear prepared path from the moment we were born (like a born writer/musician etc.).
I was just shocked how useless this books was for an average musician looking for ways to deal with procrastination.
The book is devoid of any useful content - instead the author deploys his religious ideas on every aspect of life in mind-numbing ways or generalizes things beyond recognition: The second world war? Easy! The reason was that Hitler couldn't come over his "resistance" as an artist,
(Direct quote: "it was easier for Hitler to start World War II than it was for him to face a blank square of canvas.")
Wow. This level of generalizing dumbness runs through this book like a common thread. It just never stops. At some point I just could not take it any more.

Aside from broad statements (depression? Inner resistance. Obesities? Inner resistance etc.) - the idea of an omnipotent christian god is so deeply embedded in this book that there isn't much left once you remove it. The rest of the content collapses like a house of cards without this centerpiece.

If you are a faithful christian (preferably without access to higher education) looking for an easy concept that explains inspiration and the struggle of creative work to you, this book may be for you.

As a secular artist with a love for science? No. Just no. I really can't recommend this work at all!

Another perspective of prograstination !!

This book gave me another perspective of how our life and daily obstacles are confronted by only one thing: RESISTANCE! It doesn't show several complicated answer for our innumerous problems but focuses on the constant resistance we feel.

Good message in a weird packaging

The book really is a kick in the ass but all the talk about muses and angels really takes away from the message and makes it seem to spiritual.
