Writing that sucks instead of being awesome. What a tool. This book only gets 1 star because I can't give it fewer. I enjoyed MacLeod's writing, and find his cartoons witty and just in my favorite kind of humor. I mean, quite a few are misogynistic, too, but still, I wish I'd read them before I got married so I'd known what I was getting into.
Not a deep read, but an entertaining one. Nov 14, D rated it really liked it. Hugh's writing really resonates with me. The price of being a sheep is boredom. The price of being a wolf is loneliness. Choose one or the other with great care. Please go to bed with me 2. I know. It sucks. That said, doing something seriously creative is one of the most Hugh's writing really resonates with me. That said, doing something seriously creative is one of the most amazing experiences one can have in this lifetime.
I just happen to like pleading for sex. Hang out more with creative people, the freaks, the real visionaries. Avoid the dullards. Avoid the folk who play it safe. The market for something to believe in is infinite. Jun 23, Todd rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Everyone. Hugh writes without apology.
He's telling you how to keep that creative spark alive. His 39 tips really 40 are all about defending your creative spirit and your right to have it. The tips are typically short, numbering no more than a few paragraphs each. A handful are longer where he relates personal experiences. The book isn't meant to tell you think right and you'll win.
It doesn't tell you the world will line up to help you succeed. This is not a law of attraction book. This book makes you Hugh writes without apology. This book makes you feel like having a creative spark puts you in an eternal war.
Beyond that, he tells you everyone has this spark, and most of the world is out to crush it. Sounds a bit depressing but quite the contrary, it's uplifting and funny. It challenges you a bit though, and Hugh isn't afraid to use a rough word here are there to make his point. Best takeaways? Keep your day job and apply force and focus to your creative endeavors. I'm reminded by reading this book how few people challenge themselves in the creative area, but settle to just be another bystander in life.
Cheers Hugh. A fan. Made his fame by doing this. The book sheds some light on his story and what we do to maintain our creativity spark. Came to know about Hugh through reading one of Seth Godin's books. Amusing, unfiltered, undiplomatic, direct, no zig zag, straight-to-the-point, unapologetic, strongly-worded, unconservative, non-conformist and original. Nov 08, Jenny rated it liked it. This book doesn't really share 40 keys to creativity, but rather 40 keys to live a life of creativity without getting discouraged.
It's a simple and quick read without anything mind blowing, but I really appreciated the advices given because they were direct and sugarcoat-free. As someone who doubts her ability to be creative and therefore often gives up on projects midway even with the rare courage to start at them, this book nudged me in the most helpful way and I am grateful for it. This remi This book doesn't really share 40 keys to creativity, but rather 40 keys to live a life of creativity without getting discouraged.
This reminded me of the time I used to spend ridiculous amount of hours writing silly stories and playing horrendously on my mom's piano with zero interest in sharing and gaining approval, but purely because they were fun, rewarding, challenging, and my own. Puberty and involuntarily learning to be self-conscious did more damage than I thought, but I'm claiming my freedom to unapologetically scribble awful pictures with crayons again.
However, this book had several flaws. One of them is that it is contradictory. The first half of the book hammers on the importance of creating art just for the sake of creating art and how you should never let it be bound to monetary value. Then the second half tries to advise how you can sell it or build a business with it. I also could tell from the examples of his back-of-the-business-card art that I am not an audience for his cartoon.
I enjoyed a few of them, but not most. I wished that the cartoons included in the book synced with the message of the book instead of random ones from his portfolio that he liked, especially because half of the book was taken to display them and I picked up his book for his advice on creativity, not his cartoon.
And I found his demeaning tone towards people who didn't succeed as they had hoped or those who managed to achieve their dream to find out that it actually make them unhappy quite uncomfortable and annoying. Another thing. The author repeats himself a lot throughout the already a short book. Especially about how how he drew on the back of business cards.
But as I shared in the beginning, this was a good and timely read for me. I appreciated the stress on hard work and realistic expectations to have no expectations as well, which I strangely found to be more encouraging than the opposite. At the end, I could drop the things I didn't like about the book, sort out the contradictions in my own way, and walk away with many simple and helpful advices.
Jun 27, Bonnie rated it liked it. Most all of MacLeod's 39 ideas are spot on. Half, if not more of MacLeod's 39 ideas and their explanation, had the f-bomb in them. I was going to count them, just for curiosity's sake, but decided against it because I actually don't have too much time on my hands. For such a creative guy, I would have preferred that he came up with more unique words than using the f-word, time and time again. Very disappointing in that aspect.
Imagine if this review had friggin' this and freaking' that every o Most all of MacLeod's 39 ideas are spot on. Imagine if this review had friggin' this and freaking' that every other sentence. Much of his cartooning involved drinking or sex, which for me personally, I didn't get the connection of it to creative thinking, which I don't think he meant to make a connection to but to entertain, and I'm guessing some audiences it did, however for me, it detracted from the point that he was making.
I get that for him, that's his unique style of cartooning. After all this, he still had some very sound advice. He has definitely converted me to the importance of blogging if you have an interest at all in sharing the creator within with those creators without, like-minded and not-so-like minded alike.
Dec 22, Linda rated it it was amazing Shelves: self-development , art. It took me two hours to read and it was a very pleasant read. Deep in your heart you knew most of this and Hugh put it on paper, in his words and with his cartoons.

It shows nicely the power a blogger can have because he's not dependent on anyone to bring his thoughts out into the world. On the train a very sweet Afro-American woman sat next to me while I was reading this book. Before she had to leave, she asked shyly if I could write down the author and the name of this book for her. She had been reading the book with me and stressed that she liked it very much so far.
Rock on. May 27, chantel nouseforaname rated it really liked it Shelves: leisure-reads , random , trash-waste-of-time , caught-my-eye. This dude is so miserable. I kinda loved it. Sometimes you just have to listen to a crotchety middle-aged man begrudgingly give you advice that you can actually use. Hugh MacLeod is hilarious.
I listened to this book on Scribd. The narrator William Dufris nails the attitude of the text. Know that everyone has the This dude is so miserable. Know that everyone has their own Mount Everest to climb. Be innovative and question how much freedom your art gets you. Accept the pain of your creativity. He also shares some priceless wisdom: Art suffers the moment people start to pay for it. He puts forth a lot of good advice that most people already know, but sometimes or seldom listen to.
His delivery is absurd, quirky and borderline obscene. He reminds me of one of my friends. There were a few oddly timed jokes I thought were inappropriate and ridiculous. I went and downloaded the book and realized that he was just reading the jokes off the silly cards he illustrated back in the 90s.
Fun times. I don't give 1 star ratings. To be honest I don't remember if I have ever given a 1 star rating to any book, but most probably I have not. There is always something I can take away, no matter how small, to salvage the disappointment. This one however was such an obscene waste of time, money and paper that I'm upset with myself for my foolish optimism and some strange compulsion that compel me to keep reading until the last page.
Some good books may come out of blog posts, but not every popular b I don't give 1 star ratings. Some good books may come out of blog posts, but not every popular blog should be allowed to become a book. Things that are obvious may appear okay in a blog post whose readers most probably don't have a great attention span anyway and are looking for something crisp. But you can't put together 40 such posts and call it a book!
I honestly learnt not a single thing by reading it. Also, all the content in this book can be figured out from the contents page; the reader learns absolutely nothing more by going through the chapters. A single point is reiterated in a hundred ways accompanied by badly drawn, snarky cartoons. That's all there is in it. Feb 22, Ulina rated it it was ok.
The book was published in but the tone of the book sounded like it was published in the 's. This may be because he worked in advertising which I feel like he mentioned once every 3 paragraphs. Advertising, especially in NYC may still have that persona where they only care about sex, money and social status.
He mentions sex a lot in this book. He gives off the tone that woman are just objects. He ends almost every chapter or section with a reference to sex. Maybe his target audience is The book was published in but the tone of the book sounded like it was published in the 's. Maybe his target audience is men in their early 20's because he sounds like he is trying to be frank and down to earth, by coming off as not really caring and cursing.
Instead of using commas, he likes to repeat the same sentence 5 times and just change one word. I get that he is trying to bring emphasis to what he wrote but he used that tactic about 6 times. I found it annoying after a while. But, if you can get past all of that, the underlying meaning of what he was trying to convey is helpful.
Jul 04, Daniel rated it did not like it Shelves: nonfiction. I was pretty disappointed with this book. MacLeod doesn't actually build an argument in this book, but instead seems to repeat the same points in each chapter. The observations he makes, while contradictory, seem a little obvious to me, but I may not be his intended audience, and there is something to be said for reminding people of the obvious truths that the daily grind has made them forget.
Don't get me wrong, MacLeod is not wrong, far from it. It's just the book does not do a very good job of I was pretty disappointed with this book. It's just the book does not do a very good job of supporting his argument in a compelling way. I hate to say this, but I wish I had taken a look at it in the bookstore before downloading it to my Kindle the sample chapters for this book in the Kindle store was just the Table of Contents.
May 30, Srinivasan Nanduri rated it liked it Shelves: shelved. Probably not a book material. Nevertheless a few advises taken. It just has to be yours alone. The more the idea is yours alone, the more freedom you have to do someth Probably not a book material. The more the idea is yours alone, the more freedom you have to do something really amazing. Any one more successful than you in the industry you come from, work harder than you 4.
Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten. As years progress they are replaced with pens, geometry scales etc 8. The creative person basically has two kinds of jobs: One is the sexy, creative kind. Second is the kind that pays the bills. Sometimes the task at hand covers both bases, but not often. Companies that squelch creativity can no longer compete with companies that champion creativity.
You may never reach the summit; for that you will be forgiven. The more talented somebody is, the less they need the props. The most important thing a creative person can learn professionally is where to draw the red line that separates what you are willing to do from what you are not. It is this red line that demarcates your sovereignty; that defines your own private creative domain. Art suffers the moment other people start paying for it.
The more you need the money, the more people will tell you what to do. The less control you will have. The more bullshit you will have to swallow. The less joy it will bring. Know this and plan accordingly. In order to navigate the New Realities you have to be creative - not just within your particular profession, but in everything. Your way of looking at the world will need to become ever more fertile and original. Their stability model no longer offers that much stability.
They are extinct; they are extinction. Merit can be bought. The only people who can change the world are people who want to. And not everybody does. Avoid the Watercooler Gang. The choice of media is irrelevant. Selling out is harder than it looks. Do it for yourself. Those are just ciphers, external distractions. Different criteria altogether. You have to find your own shtick. The best way to get approval is not to need it. Power is never given.
Power is taken. Whatever choice you make, the Devil gets his due eventually. Part of being creative is learning how to protect your freedom. That includes freedom from avarice. Allow your work to age with you. You become older faster than you think. Be ready for it when it happens. Being Poor Sucks. The biggest mistake young people make is underestimating how competitive the world is out there. Savor obscurity while it lasts. Start blogging Meaning scales. If you are successful, it will never come from the direction you predicted.

If you need it - get it from the library. Jun 18, Nikki Barr rated it really liked it. Quick and funny. Sep 13, Lily rated it it was ok. As some other reviews have stated, the advice itself was also rather obvious. Nov 05, anthony e. Truth be told, however, much of its advice, I find, was a little slim. The ideas were there, certainly, and many of them would in fact be helpful were one in the business of exploring and exploiting his or her creative impetus.
It advocates a kind of altered perception, centered upon the simple notion of creating for creation's sake, of 'doing' rather than 'talking'. And the inserted cartoons do a lot to illuminate the kind of selfish, foolhardy approaches to creativity taken by those who pursue it for fame, riches, and sex. But MacLeod message suffers from one vague and creeping flaw, one made explicit in the title itself. His advice, while helpful, is based largely on his own interactions with the world, and his own definitions of meaning and success.
Therefore, it makes some pretty sweeping assumptions about what being creative means. Ignore everybody? That's good advice, but it means Macleod's use of Tim Burton as an advocate for what creativity means doesn't really jive with his message. If I follow Burton or Macleod for that matter , all I'm essentially doing is parroting the wisdom of yet another culture-inclined pseudo-sage. Anything I say in response to that is really just me doing the same thing.
Macleod's thoughts incite at least some engagement of the reader with his or her own, and that accomplishment is, I'll acknowledge, valuable in itself. The key, I think, is not to look for others to give us mission statements of how to be creative--KEYS to creativity, as it were-- but rather be open to new ideas, whatever they may be. Macleod can advocate as much as he likes, but fundamentally the task of individual creative expression lies with the creative soul herself, and lacking any sort of self-awareness not generated by culture, popular or otherwise, works to frustrate that goal.
Macleod focuses his attention on what the world expects of us, failing to realize that the world expects nothing. Creativity, I think, is all about what we expect of ourselves. May 21, Abigail rated it it was amazing Shelves: art , motivational. I checked this book out from the library yesterday and on a whim, decided to read it in the tub last night.
I'm glad I did - I spent the next hour or two giggling or outright laughing out loud in the tub! The Sex and Cash Theory tip alone is worth reading the entire book for, but to say that is the only reason would be doing this book an injustice. The business card sized wisdom, while directed towards creatives, could and can easily be applied to anyone who has ever felt the urge to pick up a box of crayons long after they left kindgergarten.
Do it, pick up that box of crayons, and pick up this book at the same time. Sometimes the task at hand covers both bases, but not often. This tense duality will always play centre stage. It will never be transcended. Anybody in a creative field knows how difficult it would be to create a magnum opus.
Rather, you should start by creating and doing the work itself and inspiration will then hit you like a tonne of bricks when it comes. If not, enjoy the silence while it lasts. The noise will return soon enough. This premise of putting your soul into your own unique work, and doing it till your ship comes in is also elaborated in the following quote-worthy liners:.
In fact, his view is that worrying about the battle between commerce and art is a complete waste of time. Warhol sold out shamelessly after the year he was wounded by the gunshot of a would-be assassin and did OK by it.
I know some great artists who stuck to their guns, and all it did was make them seem more and more pathetic. Narrating his own journey, MacLeod described how he started off as a copywriter in an advertising agency, and how the advent of the Internet allowed his cartoon doodling career to take off. This creative tension is perhaps best encapsulated by the concluding paragraph from the book:. For more creative insights, do check out Gaping Void. All cartoons above courtesy of Hugh MacLeod.
