My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The premise of the book is that we sabotage ourselves every time we seek to be creative. Writers call this writer’s block. Every creative profession has its analog. Pressfield calls this “resistance”. He goes through a lot of detail about what resistance looks like, and what creatives can do to resist resistance. There is good advice here. My difficulty with the book is that it is couched in a lot of mystical language. As a lifelong skeptic, I have resistance to this language. Sorry, I just could not resist.
I’m glad that I read the book, but I doubt if I’ll read it again. It was valuable, but not that valuable.
