This book is wonderful if you spend your days wondering how to channel your inner creativity. For those that are practical and analytical, it might be hard to grasp at first. Gilbert offers an extensive list of ideas and inspiration on how to utilize your creativity and apply it in your daily life. Through hardships, sacrifices, and successes, it's a nice relatable story for creative minds. A very refreshing read. I give it 4 stars because by the last CD, she was repetitive, but at least 2/3 of the book kept me interested in hearing what Gilbert had to say.

This was short, sweet, and had some wise words and great anecdotes from and for a creative life - which is not just for the privileged few.

It was enlightening for the first half of the book, but near the end it gives you little to look forward to, pretty much rephrasing the first half. The author gives examples, and clarifies that there are a million ways to be creative. You don't have to be artistic to be creative. She gives examples that make you think. There are different ways to live a creative life. If you feel that you are not living up to your fullest potential, this is the book for you.
