The War of Art is a book of motivation and inspiration written by the best-selling novelist Steven Pressfield. The purpose of this remarkable book is to inspire writers, artists, musicians and any individual seeking to combat the negative effects of “Resistance” and channel their creative energy to attain “the unlived life within”. In this book Pressfield recognizes that it’s this “Resistance” that prevents us from achieving any type of goal whether it’s to embark on a diet, a program of spiritual advancement or an entrepreneurial venture. He identifies the struggles of the creative individual in today’s society and offers wisdom drawn from his many years’ experience as a writer to help one live out his or her destiny.
