"A must read for anyone hoping to live a creative life... I dare you not to be inspired to be brave, to be free, and to be curious.” —PopSugar
From the worldwide bestselling author of Eat Pray Love: the path to the vibrant, fulfilling life you’ve dreamed of.
Readers of all ages and walks of life have drawn inspiration and empowerment from Elizabeth Gilbert’s books for years. Now this beloved author digs deep into her own generative process to share her wisdom and unique perspective about creativity. With profound empathy and radiant generosity, she offers potent insights into the mysterious nature of inspiration. She asks us to embrace our curiosity and let go of needless suffering. She shows us how to tackle what we most love, and how to face down what we most fear. She discusses the attitudes, approaches, and habits we need in order to live our most creative lives. Balancing between soulful spirituality and cheerful pragmatism, Gilbert encourages us to uncover the “strange jewels” that are hidden within each of us. Whether we are looking to write a book, make art, find new ways to address challenges in our work, embark on a dream long deferred, or simply infuse our everyday lives with more mindfulness and passion, Big Magic cracks open a world of wonder and joy.

It was BIG MAGIC coming across this book...A must read
Amazing read for anyone who creates anything.
I really couldn't stop reading Big Magic. The way Elizabeth talks about working with your creativity was really eye opening to me. It was honest and it gave me the courage to create despite the outcome. Beyond it being inspirational it was wonderfully written and had many practical take-a-ways you could apply to your own creative process. I love the book—it's a bit like my creative Bible guide.
What the hey
This book taught me quite a bit about creativity and more about just saying yes to things and doing things. Being dating enough to try whether you fail or not. "It is far more honorable to fail, than to cheat." -Malala I feel like this book has taught me a similar lesson. Perhaps, nothing about cheating, but something about failing. It taught me enough that in being asked to write a review, I would usually say no. However, instead I chose to write this. No matter who reads it or whether or not it matters. At least I chose to put something out there.
