    this book was incredible. i feel so inspired and motivated! ...

    These kind of books are like candy. They make me feel better in the moment, but ultimately don't do much towards building a full picture of happiness. The inherent problem in any book that's a how-to for something artistic, whether it be writing or painting or making music or the ar...

    Steal Like an Artist is essential and required reading for all artists, regardless of the type of art you create. It's a quick read that you can finish in one sitting, but the ideas and advice it contains will stay with you long after you've put it down. Some of Austin's suggestions...

    This was such a phenomenal and much needed read for me. Steal Like an Artist gives ideas that apply to anyone who?s trying to inject some creativity into their life and their work. It really inspired me and I can?t wait for what?s next. Also, can I just quote everything? B...

    I read this after reading "Show Your Work!" which is the opposite order of publication, and while I definitely preferred the latter, this was also really great. Sometimes it just has to be one idea, one quote, one line, that can make a book for you. This book was solidly consistently g...

    Posted at Shelf Inflicted This eye-catching little book was wedged into the corner of one of the couches in the student lounge where I work. I was there for a cup of coffee, and since it was a rather slow day, I decided to pick up the book and read. There?s a lot of common sen...

    (This review is longer than the book itself.) Here are the Top Ten Points that the author makes in this teeny book: 1. Steal like an artist 2. Don't wait until you know who you are to get started 3. Write the book you want to read 4. Use your hands 5. Side projects and hobbie...

    Austin Kleon's "Steal Like An Artist" is a fun little book. Given that I'm not an artist - I wasn't seeking 'words- of -wisdom'. This book just landed in my hands - and I couldn't resist reading it. Austin says "every artist gets asked the question, "where do you get your ideas?" ...

    I find it difficult to review "Steal Like an Artist" because the book is an amalgamation of advice, anecdotes, and uncommon sense. Austin Kleon writes in an easy-to-follow style, instructing readers about how to be creative without talking down to anyone. In fact while I read the book,...

    I'm undecided on this book. While I appreciate the premise ? draw inspiration from people you admire and surround yourself with good role models ? I'm uneasy with the "steal" concept. The title grabs attention, but I think it overshadows the actual point, which is not to become ...

    Bien dijo George Orwell en "1984": "Los mejores libros son los que nos dicen lo que ya sabemos". Fue bastante agradable comprender que no estoy solo en esto de la escritura, que todos tenemos problemas, y que al final, lo que importa es hacer las cosas bien, aunque a veces no haya i...

    Reading this book might be the fastest thing my bosses ever asked me to do. This is a wonderful little book with advice on creativity that makes you think. I'm pretty sure i didn't grasp the whole thing right now. I think i'll take a few things out of it. And in a few months I mig...

    I usually don't go for self-help, but this seemed like it would be different. No disappointments here! This is a great book for you creative folk out there. Personally I think everyone can benefit from what this book has to offer. ...

    About a year ago, I was at the day job (web design), when a link to a blog post made it?s way around the office via AIM. The post was basically one man?s manifesto when it came to creativity. He listed out ten things he wished he knew when he was starting out as a writer and art...

    The sub-title of this book is '10 things nobody told you about being creative'. Yeah, probably because they thought you already knew them. This book is packed to the brim with platitudes such as: try to do good work, there are lots of different things to consider when choosing a pla...

    Oh fooey. Wrote something, then accidentally clicked and lost it. Let's get this over with: -Loved it. Was awesome. Will reread, often. -Too much quoting. Isn't the whole point, reappropriate, don't rip off? Excessive quoting seems to go against that. -Figures=awesome and funny. A...

    In an age where even in art there seems to be a focus on the final product or end result, Kleon's manifesto on creativity is refreshing. At a slim 100-something pages, it is a fast engaging read, filled with doodles and quotes and functioning the way zines your internet friend would se...

    This book is amazing! It's not condoning plagiarism, it suggests sharing of ideas and the process behind the product created by other artists. While you can easily sit and read it completely, I think it is best to read in small sections and think about what you've read and how it appli...

    Quick read. It is full of what I consider basic, sensible advice for creatives and people looking to practice creativity in their daily lives. Although I would consider the ideas presented merely suggestions because you know what, just do what works for you. There is absolutely no perf...

    Providing an insight into what it takes to be an artist, this book does more than just going behind the scenes. It gives you an honest and humorous take. It was off to a very strong start, but most of what I read wasn't new. But it was still a great read because of the way he arranged ...

    This is a quick, funny how-to book that offers artists (the kind who paint, writers, filmmakers, etc.) tips on "stealing" other artists' art. Author Austin Kleon points out that no artist's work is ever completely original, and that trying to be completely original will daunt an artist...

    this book was incredible. i feel so inspired and motivated! ...

    These kind of books are like candy. They make me feel better in the moment, but ultimately don't do much towards building a full picture of happiness. The inherent problem in any book that's a how-to for something artistic, whether it be writing or painting or making music or the ar...

    Steal Like an Artist is essential and required reading for all artists, regardless of the type of art you create. It's a quick read that you can finish in one sitting, but the ideas and advice it contains will stay with you long after you've put it down. Some of Austin's suggestions...

    This was such a phenomenal and much needed read for me. Steal Like an Artist gives ideas that apply to anyone who?s trying to inject some creativity into their life and their work. It really inspired me and I can?t wait for what?s next. Also, can I just quote everything? B...

    I read this after reading "Show Your Work!" which is the opposite order of publication, and while I definitely preferred the latter, this was also really great. Sometimes it just has to be one idea, one quote, one line, that can make a book for you. This book was solidly consistently g...

    Posted at Shelf Inflicted This eye-catching little book was wedged into the corner of one of the couches in the student lounge where I work. I was there for a cup of coffee, and since it was a rather slow day, I decided to pick up the book and read. There?s a lot of common sen...

    (This review is longer than the book itself.) Here are the Top Ten Points that the author makes in this teeny book: 1. Steal like an artist 2. Don't wait until you know who you are to get started 3. Write the book you want to read 4. Use your hands 5. Side projects and hobbie...

    Austin Kleon's "Steal Like An Artist" is a fun little book. Given that I'm not an artist - I wasn't seeking 'words- of -wisdom'. This book just landed in my hands - and I couldn't resist reading it. Austin says "every artist gets asked the question, "where do you get your ideas?" ...

    I find it difficult to review "Steal Like an Artist" because the book is an amalgamation of advice, anecdotes, and uncommon sense. Austin Kleon writes in an easy-to-follow style, instructing readers about how to be creative without talking down to anyone. In fact while I read the book,...

    I'm undecided on this book. While I appreciate the premise ? draw inspiration from people you admire and surround yourself with good role models ? I'm uneasy with the "steal" concept. The title grabs attention, but I think it overshadows the actual point, which is not to become ...

    Bien dijo George Orwell en "1984": "Los mejores libros son los que nos dicen lo que ya sabemos". Fue bastante agradable comprender que no estoy solo en esto de la escritura, que todos tenemos problemas, y que al final, lo que importa es hacer las cosas bien, aunque a veces no haya i...

    Reading this book might be the fastest thing my bosses ever asked me to do. This is a wonderful little book with advice on creativity that makes you think. I'm pretty sure i didn't grasp the whole thing right now. I think i'll take a few things out of it. And in a few months I mig...

    "???? ???? ?? ???? ????? ????? ?????????? ??? ?? ?????? ?? ?? ?????"-????? ???? ????? ?? ???? ????? ???? ? ???? ????? ??? ???? ?? ?????? ???? ??????? ?? ?????...

    I usually don't go for self-help, but this seemed like it would be different. No disappointments here! This is a great book for you creative folk out there. Personally I think everyone can benefit from what this book has to offer. ...

    About a year ago, I was at the day job (web design), when a link to a blog post made it?s way around the office via AIM. The post was basically one man?s manifesto when it came to creativity. He listed out ten things he wished he knew when he was starting out as a writer and art...

    The sub-title of this book is '10 things nobody told you about being creative'. Yeah, probably because they thought you already knew them. This book is packed to the brim with platitudes such as: try to do good work, there are lots of different things to consider when choosing a pla...

    Oh fooey. Wrote something, then accidentally clicked and lost it. Let's get this over with: -Loved it. Was awesome. Will reread, often. -Too much quoting. Isn't the whole point, reappropriate, don't rip off? Excessive quoting seems to go against that. -Figures=awesome and funny. A...

    In an age where even in art there seems to be a focus on the final product or end result, Kleon's manifesto on creativity is refreshing. At a slim 100-something pages, it is a fast engaging read, filled with doodles and quotes and functioning the way zines your internet friend would se...

    This book is amazing! It's not condoning plagiarism, it suggests sharing of ideas and the process behind the product created by other artists. While you can easily sit and read it completely, I think it is best to read in small sections and think about what you've read and how it appli...

    Quick read. It is full of what I consider basic, sensible advice for creatives and people looking to practice creativity in their daily lives. Although I would consider the ideas presented merely suggestions because you know what, just do what works for you. There is absolutely no perf...

    This one is short-and-sweet but filled to the brim with good advice. Definitely worth keeping on your bedside table or work desk if you're an artist of any kind (writer, musician, dancer, etc). Probably the piece that stuck out the most for me was Kleon's discussion of constraints....

    I don't often go the 1-star route. But this is such a blatant attempt at brand-building that I could feel the "speaker's fees" right there between every page. Read Anne Lamott's "Bird by Bird" instead for a true creative boost. ...

    Providing an insight into what it takes to be an artist, this book does more than just going behind the scenes. It gives you an honest and humorous take. It was off to a very strong start, but most of what I read wasn't new. But it was still a great read because of the way he arranged ...

    This book could have been a pamphlet. But, despite its brief insights--it is thought provoking. ? Nothing is original ?áLearn the history of your craft: one artist at a time. This is your creative lineage. ? School yourself--be curious "School is one thing. Education is a...

    Providing an insight into what it takes to be an artist, this book does more than just going behind the scenes. It gives you an honest and humorous take. It was off to a very strong start, but most of what I read wasn't new. But it was still a great read because of the way he arranged ...

    This is a quick, funny how-to book that offers artists (the kind who paint, writers, filmmakers, etc.) tips on "stealing" other artists' art. Author Austin Kleon points out that no artist's work is ever completely original, and that trying to be completely original will daunt an artist...

    These kind of books are like candy. They make me feel better in the moment, but ultimately don't do much towards building a full picture of happiness. The inherent problem in any book that's a how-to for something artistic, whether it be writing or painting or making music or the ar...

    Steal Like an Artist is essential and required reading for all artists, regardless of the type of art you create. It's a quick read that you can finish in one sitting, but the ideas and advice it contains will stay with you long after you've put it down. Some of Austin's suggestions...

    This was such a phenomenal and much needed read for me. Steal Like an Artist gives ideas that apply to anyone who?s trying to inject some creativity into their life and their work. It really inspired me and I can?t wait for what?s next. Also, can I just quote everything? B...

    I read this after reading "Show Your Work!" which is the opposite order of publication, and while I definitely preferred the latter, this was also really great. Sometimes it just has to be one idea, one quote, one line, that can make a book for you. This book was solidly consistently g...

    Austin Kleon's "Steal Like An Artist" is a fun little book. Given that I'm not an artist - I wasn't seeking 'words- of -wisdom'. This book just landed in my hands - and I couldn't resist reading it. Austin says "every artist gets asked the question, "where do you get your ideas?" ...

    I find it difficult to review "Steal Like an Artist" because the book is an amalgamation of advice, anecdotes, and uncommon sense. Austin Kleon writes in an easy-to-follow style, instructing readers about how to be creative without talking down to anyone. In fact while I read the book,...

    Reading this book might be the fastest thing my bosses ever asked me to do. This is a wonderful little book with advice on creativity that makes you think. I'm pretty sure i didn't grasp the whole thing right now. I think i'll take a few things out of it. And in a few months I mig...

    About a year ago, I was at the day job (web design), when a link to a blog post made it?s way around the office via AIM. The post was basically one man?s manifesto when it came to creativity. He listed out ten things he wished he knew when he was starting out as a writer and art...

    The sub-title of this book is '10 things nobody told you about being creative'. Yeah, probably because they thought you already knew them. This book is packed to the brim with platitudes such as: try to do good work, there are lots of different things to consider when choosing a pla...

    In an age where even in art there seems to be a focus on the final product or end result, Kleon's manifesto on creativity is refreshing. At a slim 100-something pages, it is a fast engaging read, filled with doodles and quotes and functioning the way zines your internet friend would se...

    This book is amazing! It's not condoning plagiarism, it suggests sharing of ideas and the process behind the product created by other artists. While you can easily sit and read it completely, I think it is best to read in small sections and think about what you've read and how it appli...

    I read this after reading "Show Your Work!" which is the opposite order of publication, and while I definitely preferred the latter, this was also really great. Sometimes it just has to be one idea, one quote, one line, that can make a book for you. This book was solidly consistently g...

    Posted at Shelf Inflicted This eye-catching little book was wedged into the corner of one of the couches in the student lounge where I work. I was there for a cup of coffee, and since it was a rather slow day, I decided to pick up the book and read. There?s a lot of common sen...

    (This review is longer than the book itself.) Here are the Top Ten Points that the author makes in this teeny book: 1. Steal like an artist 2. Don't wait until you know who you are to get started 3. Write the book you want to read 4. Use your hands 5. Side projects and hobbie...

    Austin Kleon's "Steal Like An Artist" is a fun little book. Given that I'm not an artist - I wasn't seeking 'words- of -wisdom'. This book just landed in my hands - and I couldn't resist reading it. Austin says "every artist gets asked the question, "where do you get your ideas?" ...

    I find it difficult to review "Steal Like an Artist" because the book is an amalgamation of advice, anecdotes, and uncommon sense. Austin Kleon writes in an easy-to-follow style, instructing readers about how to be creative without talking down to anyone. In fact while I read the book,...

    I'm undecided on this book. While I appreciate the premise ? draw inspiration from people you admire and surround yourself with good role models ? I'm uneasy with the "steal" concept. The title grabs attention, but I think it overshadows the actual point, which is not to become ...

    Bien dijo George Orwell en "1984": "Los mejores libros son los que nos dicen lo que ya sabemos". Fue bastante agradable comprender que no estoy solo en esto de la escritura, que todos tenemos problemas, y que al final, lo que importa es hacer las cosas bien, aunque a veces no haya i...

    Reading this book might be the fastest thing my bosses ever asked me to do. This is a wonderful little book with advice on creativity that makes you think. I'm pretty sure i didn't grasp the whole thing right now. I think i'll take a few things out of it. And in a few months I mig...

    I usually don't go for self-help, but this seemed like it would be different. No disappointments here! This is a great book for you creative folk out there. Personally I think everyone can benefit from what this book has to offer. ...

    About a year ago, I was at the day job (web design), when a link to a blog post made it?s way around the office via AIM. The post was basically one man?s manifesto when it came to creativity. He listed out ten things he wished he knew when he was starting out as a writer and art...

    The sub-title of this book is '10 things nobody told you about being creative'. Yeah, probably because they thought you already knew them. This book is packed to the brim with platitudes such as: try to do good work, there are lots of different things to consider when choosing a pla...

    Oh fooey. Wrote something, then accidentally clicked and lost it. Let's get this over with: -Loved it. Was awesome. Will reread, often. -Too much quoting. Isn't the whole point, reappropriate, don't rip off? Excessive quoting seems to go against that. -Figures=awesome and funny. A...

    In an age where even in art there seems to be a focus on the final product or end result, Kleon's manifesto on creativity is refreshing. At a slim 100-something pages, it is a fast engaging read, filled with doodles and quotes and functioning the way zines your internet friend would se...

    This book is amazing! It's not condoning plagiarism, it suggests sharing of ideas and the process behind the product created by other artists. While you can easily sit and read it completely, I think it is best to read in small sections and think about what you've read and how it appli...

    Quick read. It is full of what I consider basic, sensible advice for creatives and people looking to practice creativity in their daily lives. Although I would consider the ideas presented merely suggestions because you know what, just do what works for you. There is absolutely no perf...

    This one is short-and-sweet but filled to the brim with good advice. Definitely worth keeping on your bedside table or work desk if you're an artist of any kind (writer, musician, dancer, etc). Probably the piece that stuck out the most for me was Kleon's discussion of constraints....

    I don't often go the 1-star route. But this is such a blatant attempt at brand-building that I could feel the "speaker's fees" right there between every page. Read Anne Lamott's "Bird by Bird" instead for a true creative boost. ...

    Providing an insight into what it takes to be an artist, this book does more than just going behind the scenes. It gives you an honest and humorous take. It was off to a very strong start, but most of what I read wasn't new. But it was still a great read because of the way he arranged ...

    This book could have been a pamphlet. But, despite its brief insights--it is thought provoking. ? Nothing is original ?áLearn the history of your craft: one artist at a time. This is your creative lineage. ? School yourself--be curious "School is one thing. Education is a...

    This is a quick, funny how-to book that offers artists (the kind who paint, writers, filmmakers, etc.) tips on "stealing" other artists' art. Author Austin Kleon points out that no artist's work is ever completely original, and that trying to be completely original will daunt an artist...

    Aw, what a delightful, creative, inspirational read! :D Filled me with writerly cheer and the desire to create stuff! (yay, that's also my 50th book of the year!) ...

    What a fantastic read. I don't have anything else to add to that. Read it, get inspired and create something'new'. ...

    These kind of books are like candy. They make me feel better in the moment, but ultimately don't do much towards building a full picture of happiness. The inherent problem in any book that's a how-to for something artistic, whether it be writing or painting or making music or the ar...
