In reading this book there were no aha moments, a few head-nodding moments, and a whole slew of head-shaking, frowny moments.

Too much ‘go without it how it feels.’

Not near enough ‘sit down, get over yourself, and work.’

Both yin and yang are of course necessary, but it would be hard to overemphasize the importance of unassuming grit, that simple, clear-minded work which actually gets it done. As this book proves, though, it is very easy to overemphasize the touchy-feely.

Creating is more akin to what the stonemason does. As artists we're less interested in what the forest spirit does, dancing about in flowing, sheer robes.

Exactly what I needed to read right now at this pivotal point in my life. Had I heard some of these quotes before? Of course! Did this book validate the lifestyle that I have created for myself? Hell yeah! I did appreciate the the refresher and the fact that I have carved the perfect path for myself and for my art.

Perhaps I have read too many self-help/personal development books, but I found Rubin’s work devoid of genuine “light bulb moments.” Admittedly, the music industry icon offers interesting insights and anecdotes that showcase the creative process. And there are a number of sections that reinforce tenets that have already been explored in various books, articles and studies. For example, our subconscious state allows us to tap into a reservoir of out-of-the-box ideas. Rubin also explores the concept of “innovation through ignorance,” asserting that our lack of knowledge about a topic can open doors to new ways of thinking. Still, so much of the material is fairly fundamental stuff. Examples: Creativity cannot be rushed. Accessing our child-like spirit can fuel creativity. Accepting self-doubt as opposed to repressing it can make it easier to come to terms with it. I have a hunch I was expecting too much from this widely acclaimed book.… (lisätietoja)

Excellent. This work took extensive research to put together this account of how these people lived on the rainy northwest coast of America. The sea and the rivers provided so much they developed a highly developed society with no agriculture pre contact.
