    I appreciate and respect Elizabeth Gilbert's attempt to inspire creativity, and can fully see why people could love this and take a lot away from it.. but there were too many fundamental things that I disagreed with/thought were done poorly for me. 1) Creativity as a type of religio...

    Talk about receiving the right message at the right time. Wow. Big Magic is one of the most honest discussions about the creative process that I?ve ever read. Gilbert strikes a playful and conversational tone, but make no mistake, this is all straight talk. Her no BS attitude helps d...

    Preach, Vain, Snore You know, I didn't enter into this as a "hate-read", despite being such a cynic. I don't like to waste my time and money on things just to have something to snark at (I can already hear the snickering in the audience as I write that). You see, with any of these...

    Is it mere coincidence that BIG is synonymous with FAT and that MAGIC is one of those oblique words difficult to put your finger on, like CHANCE? Because I think that's a better title for this book: Fat Chance. That's the message here: you're gonna fail, you big loser! Where's the ...

    Thank you, Elizabeth Gilbert, for writing this much-needed book on creativity. It was practical, helpful, comforting and inspiring. I know it will be a book I recommend over and over again to writer and artist friends, and anyone else who wants to live a more creative life. I've bee...

    Favorite Book of the Year Where to start? This book knocked my socks off. Which is pretty strange given that I?ve always been a die-hard cynic (with really tight socks). I?ve always rolled my eyes at spirituality and snidely called it woo woo (now I murmur woo woo with affecti...

    The message is...."we are all inherently creative". Elizabeth Gilbert says..."Be an artist. Create for the sake of creating". "Because creative living is where the Big Magic will always be". And we paid money for this enlightening information. It's kinda funny to me... how such...

    Ok so with a little more than 16 hours to end the year, my mind has been officially blown away by Ms.Elizabeth Gilbert, wow! I am the more surprised because I utterly and unequivocally loathe the "self-help" book category. But what a rewarding reading experience to close what was a...

    With her new book, Gilbert sets herself up as a layman?s creativity guru much like Anne Lamott does with Bird by Bird or Stephen King with On Writing. This is based on Gilbert?s TED talks, and it reads very much like a self-help pep talk, with short chapters, lots of anecdotes, a...

    I underlined something on nearly every page, and my margin notes look like this: YES YES YES YES YES YES. I haven't loved everything Gilbert has ever written, but this is one of those books that came into my life at the perfect moment. I say this often (usually about every book I...
