1. Short review: 

2. Long review:
2.1. What I liked: The War of Art takes a spiritual approach to writing. It is all about the inner battle of writing.
Roller-coaster or walk-in-the-park? A very introspective walk-in-the-park.
This book gives great value for your money.

2.2. What I did not like:  Does not apply.

2.3. Who I think is the audience:  Writers and artists.

2.4. Is the book appropriate for children to read?  Yes.

2.5. On the basis of reading this book, will I buy the author's next book?  Yes.

2.6. Other:  Back in 2006, I corresponded briefly with Steven Pressfield. He promised to steal an idea from me. That Steven Pressfield found merit in an idea of mine is one of the proud moments of my life.

The War of Art connected with me. Will it connect with you? I don't know. YMMV.

I do not recall the exchange Mr Pressfield quoted from the Bhagavad Gita -- Your effort belongs to you. The result of your effort belongs to God. --, but I shall reread the Gita to refresh my memory.
