This book is sub-sub-titled “A Practical Guide” and that’s appropriate. Ms. Tharp lists her methods of preparation for living a creative life. She also outlines over 30 exercises you can do that either get yourself moving (in your creative work), or keep you moving.
Mostly, I enjoyed the inspiration I gathered from this book. I feel motivated to refresh my creative life and try out new things.
Ms. Tharp gives you hope that, with hard work, and with lots of practice — and even with some failure! — you can master your craft.
