What keeps so many of us from doing what we long to do? How can we avoid the roadblocks of creative endeavour be it starting a business, writing a novel or painting a picture? THE WAR OF ART is nothing less than Sun-Tzu for the soul. In this inspirational and engaging book, bestselling author Steven Pressfield helps people overcome what he terms 'resistance' and so release the individual's abilities whether a diet programme, spiritual advancement, a business venture, writing a novel or any other life goal. It's inspirational, practical and entertaining - emphasising the need to recognise and overcome the obstacles of ambition and how to acquire creative discipline. From the book: 'There's a secret that real writers know that wannabe writers don't, and the secret is this: It's not the writing part that's hard. What's hard is sitting down to write.' Whether an artist, writer or business person, this inspirational, entertaining, and no-nonsense book will inspire you to seize the potential of your life.
