The pros: The information is delivered in short, easy-to-grasp concepts approached from different creative people’s points of view. It’s like a best-minds approach rather than one person’s opinion.
Each section has a key-takeaways page which revisits what you just read. I found it quite helpful in making the points stick in my brain.
Speaking of the brain, I like the way the book addresses the science of the brain (in layman terms, no technobabble). It’s reassuring when science backs up a creative person’s work habits.
Also, it’s a beautiful book! The black, red, and white pages, and the black and white fonts, and the different sized fonts, and the raised and impressed text on the cover (and the little fold out flaps) . . . it’s so visually and texturally appealing.
The cons: Umm, can’t think of anything. I wished for more . . . I suppose that’s like a con.
Overall, a five-star, must-read, beautiful book!
Overall, I loved it! Next, I'm reading the other book in the series: Maximize Your Potential: Grow Your Expertise, Take Bold Risks & Build an Incredible Career (The 99U Book Series 2)
For me it's not about finding a way to "get the work done", it's about finding the space to revel in doing what I love. When that happens, the work gets done and done well.
If you want to live a different way AND you are in a headspace where you're already committed to making the changes needed, then buy this book. It will inspire and give you some great food for thought to help you on your way. If you're not, don't bother. It's not a magic wand and it won't make a shred of difference.
But I urge you to bother, to care, to take the leap, because it really, really is worth it.
