I've given this book to four (soon to be five) people as Christmas or birthday gifts, and even bought an extra copy because I know I'll find a sixth person who could benefit from what Aisling has to say. So far I've gifted this book to other working artists (two photographers and a musician) as well as people who are less far along their creative journeys. I only hope it inspires them as much as it's inspired me.
A very useful book... I would categorize this book under parenting books and self-help books. This will hopefully release some anxieties of parents who avoid the path less traveled route in raising their children in diff aspects of life... child rearing, education, opening doors for their child til old age. It's a book to own and keep at home. It's a book that one can go back and re read every now and then as we all go through different phases in our lives.
can be a good gift for any occasion: grad from K,grade school, mid school, HS, or college, or may be a sacramental book present, or any friend in diff situations: happy times or difficult moments.
awesome... well written and easy to read esp for busy people.
a must read. will definitely recommend to all ages!
a library (private or public) MUST have
go get your copy ASAP so you can start Making Something for oneself, one's community, or the world in one's own very ways!
"We've been raised to shoot for the stars, but nobody ever told us that we're lucky if we manage to even get off the ground on the first try. That nobody reaches the stars in one shot."
The book is not only written for one in the typical art fields, but any person trying to create something. A quick read, but definitely something to show to those who are looking for motivation to press on.
