Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Forget the lone genius myth, says Kleon, author of the best-seller, Steal like an Artist (2012). His 10-step journey in this beginner’s guide to self-promotion emphasizes audience building and explains the how and why of such approaches as thinking about process rather than product, sharing something each day, teaching what you know, learning to take a punch, and developing staying power. Kleon’s use of artists’ quotes, photographs, and organizational diagrams enhances the text as he reminds readers of how interested people are in the creative process. Become a documentarian . . . start a journal . . . keep a scrapbook . . . see the work you’re doing more clearly and feel . . . progress. When you’re ready to share, you’ll have a surplus of material. Put work out there and let people take their best shot. Then make even more work and keep sharing it until you learn that criticism can’t hurt and may help you. And stick with it. Kleon’s powerful advice makes this small-format book not-at-all little. --Whitney Scott

Review

"Austin Kleon is one of the brightest new minds on the creative landscape. Show Your Work! demonstrates why. With simple yet profound insights, and an array of his amazing images, he casts aside old stereotypes of the creative life and tells what it's really like." - Daniel Pink, author of To Sell is Human and Drive

"[Show Your Work is] timeless; readers can return to it repeatedly throughout life and still glean useful ideas and tips... Anyone starting out (or starting over)...will find upbeat encouragement here."
Library Journal

“Some people are natural self-promoters. For others, it’s painfully difficult to put their work out there. In this creatively designed pocket-sized book, Kleon offers the latter group effective strategies that allow them to share their work without leaving their comfort zone…. Kleon’s advice is sassy and spot-on.”
Publishers Weekly

“[The] subtitle could just as easily be, ‘How to Self-promote Without Being a Jerkface.’ It’s an incredibly useful and compulsively readable short book.”
Fast Company

“Kleon addresses with equal parts humility, honesty, and humor one of the quintessential questions of the creative life: How do you get ‘discovered’? In some ways, the book is the mirror-image of Kleon’s debut ― rather than encouraging you to ‘steal’ from others… it offers a blueprint to making your work influential enough to be theft-worthy.”
Brain Pickings

“A must-read for anyone involved in the creative process.”
LibraryReads


“Kleon’s powerful advice makes this small-format book not-at-all little.”
Booklist

“In this motivating book, packed with smart approaches, ideas and quotes, Kleon teaches you how best to navigate through creative work in the present day. . . . A certain and deserved bestseller.”
The Bookseller

“It’s not often that I find myself reviewing a book that I can say has already changed my life. . . . At a crucial turn in this fabulous little wallop of a book comes the simple directive, ‘Share something small every day.’ That ‘something’ oughtn’t be your Instagrammed latte or a selfie, but something ‘useful or interesting’ about your work. Put enough somethings out there, and a lone artist or entrepreneur can soon be a productive part of a creative community.”

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Book for Writers and Other Creative People
By Juli Hoffman on September 15, 2018
Such a fantastic book for creatively minded people! It’s the kind of book that you can pick up and set down over and over again. A good book to have on your nightstand or—dare I say it—in your bathroom. (Yes, I’m a bathroom reader. ) I’d certainly give it away as a gift. It would make a nice graduation present for a budding artist or writer.

I constantly over-think my writing. I’m afraid to share my words and feelings with others. I’ve certainly grown as a person over the years, but my journey seems to be three steps forward, two steps back. Yes, I’m making progress. Slowly. SOOO slowly. This book helped me to realize that what I’m doing DOES have value and I appreciate the author reminding me of this!

Thank you, Austin Kleon, for sharing your ideas!

3.0 out of 5 stars NOT life changing
By Matthew Brennan on March 27, 2021
I bought this book based on a recommendation from Ali Abdaal’s YouTube channel. (Shout out to Ali!) There he professed that this series of books “changed his life.”

It’s safe to say that expectations were set rather too high. Certainly, there’s no way I could ever call this book life-changing. The best I can say is it’s a very short, light read, with occasional thought-provoking quotes.

A large chunk of this book will be obvious to anyone who’s grown up using the internet. Perhaps in 2014 when it was first published there was more of a need for such insights. We often forget how fast things change.

One thing that bugged me throughout was the ugly and unnecessary illustrations that failed to add anything—blacked out words, reminiscent of the pasted newspaper letters from a cartoon kidnapper’s ransom note.

I don't tend to write reviews or be a so called "fan" of anybody, but, I am obsessed with his books and weekly newsletters. Each book was perfectly timed for me and where my head was at.
