Rating: 3.5/5

This book actually consists of a few different short essays, covering everything from why we shouldn’t be afraid to be lazy from time to time to his advice to someone who’s decided to set about launching a creative career.

What’s most interesting to me is that the book maintains its relevance, despite its age. There’s a lot to like here, and while it does occasionally veer towards over-written, it never quite falls over the precipice. The result is something that’s pretty easy to read and which provides a heck of a lot of food for thought. Sweet!
