Amazing book if you are a creative of any type and your work's outcome is not clear or guaranteed. Full of useful and practical advice.
His Good life project also is worth watching ir listening to if you want to know how the most extradionary human beings if our generation made it to where they are.
Jonathan Fields is an amazing writer and his Conversation Provocative style leaves you always with lots of thoughts of your own ,which is ultimately the best legacy a book can have.

a life saver

having previously read the Artist way this is just to complete that course. It will reinforce the learning and hopefully spark new creativity in you.

I was recommended this book by a post from Chris Brogan and I downloaded the audio version. I like listening to books while I walk to work every day.
I got also the written version but I really like the audio since its read by James itself and he is a very down to earth guy and funny also.
The contents and ideas are not new in the sense that other authors are writing about the massive change in our economy and labour panorama but what makes this book unique is that they are really simple techniques and ideas to implement in your life that anybody can follow.
The whole thing sounded to me more like a chat with a dear friend while having coffee than a lecture. James is not standing on a perfection pedestal and he talks about his dark moments where he lost everything. And that's the kind of advice that I find so relevant to this moment in time in our world.
Hope you enjoy it!!

I wanted to start listening to books since this gives me the freedom of doing activities like sewing or pottering around the house while listening to something interesting.

I bought it based on the reviews and I wasnt disapointed.This is a great book if you dont know anything at all about buddhism and want to start at some point.It doesnt matter if you know much religion all together.This is simple and adapted to our world and the times we live in.

The book is very entertaining and is read in front of a live audience.the best part is that the author takes a subject like religion which is often seem as too seroius or ceremonial but is not afraid of making inncoent jokes and bringing examples that put a smile on you.I highly recommend it.
