"[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."
“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.”
“[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.”
“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.”
“A must-read for anyone involved in the creative process.”
“Kleon’s powerful advice makes this small-format book not-at-all little.”
“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.”
“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.”

Here's what I didn't like:
The constant single sentence celebrity name dropping as examples of success being constantly used. I know Kleon's most famous work is "Steal Like an Artist" but I think he could have done without constantly using other peoples words to make a point where his own would have been fine. Even if it was limited to just once per page instead of 2-3 times it would have been less grating.
Also the "art" pages would have fit better if they weren't placed in the middle of a sentence so often.
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!
Highly Highly Recommended. I am collecting digital images to copy color schemes in what would be considered original art, digitally painted with the idea to use the art as inspiration, and yet paint my own stuff. There is a difference between stealing art and using art as inspiration; though the author says it differently. This particular book takes you to the next step where your work will get seen. For me it is just for fun. I do not sell. But we can all use a compliment or two, right? A captive audience. Some day maybe an offer to have me do commissioned work....errr maybe.
Why? I believe is because Austin didn't discover anything new here, just described the process you would learn from other internet marketing or personal branding books, but from the perspective of an artist.
Do I recommend it? Yes, but not too much if you had read several books on the subject (marketing, social media, personal branding, etc.) On the other hand, if you're a graphic or creative professional, an artist, who don't have idea of what to do with internet, how to promote yourself there, this book will be a great start.
