Let me just start by saying this book changed my way of thinking. I always thought to be good at something you must perfect your craft then let it out to the universe. In reading this book Austin Kleon explains in order to be discovered or recognized you must show the process of your craft. It does not matter if it's any good because other crafters will recognize your work. That process alone will lead to a following. I dont want to give up all the goodies in this book that really hit home for me but I do give it a big fat thumbs up!!!! I can't wait to get my hands on his last book "Steal like an Artist". I love the way he says close to the end of the book to share it with someone. I'm going to give this book to my sweet friend Theresa who is a small buisness owner. Who knows she may make it to the top!

This book was recommended to me by a friend on Instagram. It gave me so much valuable info more than I could imagine. Everyone can relate to things written in the book no matter what your skill or craft is. I highly recommend this book and I look forward to reading other books this author has written.

Not just for artists, not just for those who want better social media strategies. This book is for everyone who wants to do better work, get noticed, and thrive through the process of sharing what they do. The book is well written, entertaining, and informative. Worth much more than the cover price.
