5.0 out of 5 stars Breaking Through Illusions, February 12, 2001
I am a working visual artist and spiritual seeker and I have never read such an honest account of what it's like to be an artist in the modern world. So often journalists, especially self-help authors, tell the reader what they want to hear; things like "do what you love, and the money will follow," leading the reader blindly down pathways based upon wishful thinking. Bayles and Orland explore the reality of being a creative person a materialistic world and how to survive by knowing yourself and what art making is about for you. If you find yourself with the impulse to quit for whatever reason: lack of sales, rejection, burn out, bad reviews, or creative blocks, reading this little book may help you reexamine and rekindle your creative impulses in a new light.
