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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

pretty good

Explains the difference between an amature and a professional. It gives you a better understanding how a professional is working and thinking.

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.

Plakativ aber gut

Die Musik untermalt es sehr passend. Der Inhalt ist sehr plakativ dargestellt aber dadurch auch greifbar. Im ersten Moment dache ich mir "Nur 2,5 h?", aber das kompakte Format ist gut. Es war bestimmt nicht das letzte Mal das ich das Hörbuch gehört habe

Good idea, but what to do with it?

The book has great ideas, but nothing on how to actually implement them. I've read a blog post about it, and the book itself was just trying to prove over and over again the same idea. Ok, I got it. How do I implement it? Nothing on that, sorry. Still highly rated as it can give a very good push to many people by showing them that what they feel is "normal" and "fine".

Religious Bullshi*

The title is pretty misleasing and its content is full of unhelpful views connected with angels and god but nothing inspiring regarding the topic itself. Just horrible. I would love to give Zero stars, but that's unfortunately not possible.
