The War of Art discussion, Part 2 #NewYearBooks — 7 Comments

  1. Joy, I listened to this book about a year ago. I intend to sync it to my iPod to hear it again, inspired by this discussion. I’m sorry I’m not keeping up, but I’m enjoying your review and the important reminders of patience and persistence.
    I like how Pressfield almost personifies Resistance – helps us see it as a thing to be conquered. I also find it comforting that I’m not the only one who has experienced Resistance – that gives me the motivation to keep fighting.

  3. I felt the same about the examples he gives, too – they’re very masculine. And I’d like to think that that kind of single minded focus isn’t necessary to win the battle against resistance. I found Book Two didn’t work as well for me as Book One did.
