I wasn’t sure what to expect coming into this book. A lot of self-help books are preachy and almost make you feel like the author is talking down to you. Not this one. The author does a phenomenal job of making the reader feel engaged and the writing relatable. The writing was light, with hints of humor mixed in that makes it feel like they wrote this book just for you.

The ideas in this book are real and actionable with the author’s own personal experiences illustrating how they have applied it to their everyday life. I enjoyed the layout of the book with the short, yet concise chapters that made reading enjoyable and relatable.

This book had me hooked from the beginning. I believe it is one that everyone can benefit from. Whether you are creative, looking to be creative, or not creative at all, we can all benefit from the lessons in this book. This book will be kept on my shelf for a long time and used as a point of reference for the moments in my life where my creativity is struggling.
