Writing this review is a form of Resistance for me right now, but I'm doing it anyways. Although the book is short and draws heavily upon parts of The War of Art, I've found it to be very helpful. It's brevity doesn't bother me, because it doesn't need to be flowery - it gets to the point, and that is what is needed. It's essentially a "how to" companion to The War of Art. It won't kick your butt, but it will help you understand what going on when the process of doing the work begins to break down and you're floundering. This and the War of Art are two of my bibles. I read them over and over again to constantly be reminded of what needs to be done.

This is a condensed version of the War of Art, which makes it so handy as a quick pick up when you are pursuing your goals and getting sidetracked.
Having once gone through the entire process that the author talks about, I can say from experience he is dead on the mark.
I use this book as a reminder to myself to keep on going.
So easy to pick up and just open at any page and find the inspiration I need.

Detailed as if the author has been reading my mail. I loved every part of it. I decided not to "ring the bell" and keep on going. After living like a failure for a year, I rescheduled the time to do the things I love to do for e.g running, and reading . It's a quick read and could give you that "second wind" you need to write that book, run that marathon, to start that business. Good luck!

Pressfield is one of my favorite authors of all time. This is similar to "The War of Art" but a different message. It's not so "fight the resistance" than "do more". He speaks to the inner artist/entrepreneur, don't for one second believe your journey will be easy, don't ever think you can take a short cut, and for those who have a work ethic, have passion, they will reap the rewards of what lies ahead in their journey of finding the artist within themselves.

You won't regret buying this book.
PS: If you ever get the chance to hear Steven Pressfield talk on a podcast listen in. It gives you a lot more context to where he's coming from in his writing. I believe Mitch Joel has interviewed him on the Six Pixels of Seperation Podcast. One of my favorite conversations for sure.

"This book is designed to coach you through a project (a book, a ballet, a new business venture, a philanthropic enterprise) from conception to finished product, seeing it from the point of view of Resistance." I can see how the advice could be used for most projects, but the examples are almost all from the perspective of writing a book.

This is an excellent book, mostly about overcoming resistance and getting things done. I read quite a bit of self-development literature and this was not just more of the same. Highly recommended for action takers.

A good quick read about the daily challenges of creating anything worthwhile. All great writers, artists and entrepreneurs have had to overcome resistance in one way or the other. As Steven says it a process and one has to Do The Work. The more you are willing to tackle the process on a daily basis the more successful one will be. There are no shortcuts. Even the greats have had failures. Some would say you can't have success until you have had a failure. Writing for example is the process of rewriting. Any of Steven Pressfield's books are thought provoking and worth reading. He has been on this journey a long time and has seen the ups and downs.
Time to Do The Work.

The book had me at the Foreword! It will definitely be on my re-read list of books; I experienced a lot of epiphanies due to the many thought provoking "pearls of wisdom" it contains. A must read for anyone struggling with getting started & staying motivated on ANY issue in life.

I want to write a really great, effusive, glowing review, but I am too inspired by this book and off to get started with my next project... So I guess that is a pretty good review. The book works. And now so will I.

Simple and full of truth. Loved every page of it. Having wrote and "shipped" a book myself, i can certify every bit of resistance explained in Steven's work. Awesome work.

Do The Work has challenged me to the core and I am left with no more excuses not to start. I highly recommend this work for anyone who approaches a project with creative intent.
