"Jeff Goins doesn't just show us how to be more creative. He also reveals a path for turning our art into business and our business into art. Every entrepreneur, writer, and artist should read this book and take notes."
--DANIEL H. PINK, author of Drive and To Sell Is Human
"Jeff Goins has established himself as a fresh and dynamic voice inspiring us to get out of our own way and produce our best work. Real Artists Don't Starve is the work of angels: a book every aspiring writer, artist, and creative must read."
--STEVEN PRESSFIELD, bestselling author of The War of Art
"Anyone trying to make a living from their creative work will find much to steal here."
--AUSTIN KLEON, author of Steal Like an Artist
"Jeff puts to rest the myth of the starving artist. Artists not only deserve to be well rewarded, but there are more opportunities than ever for them to make it happen. This book is not only the blueprint, it's also Jeff's personal artistic manifesto. And now it's mine."
--JAMES ALTUCHER, author and entrepreneur
"Goins dispels the myth that being a creative is some illusive, mysterious dimension reserved for a chosen few. A great book for anyone bogged down by old-fashioned ideas about what it takes to be a thriving artist."

If you have read more than a few books/blogs about being an artist and making a living, particularly those of a more inspirational bent, you won't really find anything new here.
Despite that, the way that the stories are told is nicely done. I enjoyed it and found it a light and quick read and will probably read it again at some point. It's one of those books that's better suited to someone who needs encouragement rather than practical instructions.
Yes, in fact, it's possible to get paid for work you care about. This book is a fine handbook to get you there.
So, once again, thank you, Jeff! For your dedication to writing from your heart!!!
I love that Jeff uses masters of the past and creatives of the here and now to show that these principles are truly timeless. Like many of Jeff's writing, he makes it easy to follow and to apply.
Reading this book will expand your knowledge and encourage you to be more than you imagined as an artist, writer, speaker, or even entrepreneur. I would highly suggest buying this book. Read and read it again.
There truly is no downside to making this investment in your craft!
This book does not disappoint. It gives you practical tips on engaging your artistry in this new digital age and how to make a living off of it. Jeff hits the nail right on the head. One of my top reads for 2017 for sure.
It's clear Jeff did a lot of research for this book, much of it based on actual interviews. Jeff Goins goes a step further and tells us how and why thriving artists thrive, making the book both inspirational an practical.
If you're an artist who wants to be a thriving artist, read this book.
