Put Your Ass Where Your Heart Wants to Be by Steven Pressfield

About the Book:

Are you losing your "war of art"? Are you being defeated by a tendency to procrastination, self-doubt, fear, distraction, and perfectionism? Are you self-sabotaging your loftiest artistic entrepreneurial dreams?

The antidote is nine words: Put your ass where your heart wants to be. Can you shift your artistic identity—your "ass"—from the shallow, fearful, superficial ego to the wise, loving, fearless self?

Can you commit to your dream for the long haul and for keeps? In this book, best-selling author Steven Pressfield delivers the tough-love inspiration to help you make this life-altering transformation.

About the Author:

Steven Pressfield is the author of The War of Art which has sold over a million copies globally and been translated into multiple languages.

He is a master of historical fiction with Gates of Fire being on the required reading list at West Point and the recommended reading list of the Joint Chiefs.

His other books include A Man at Arms, Turning Pro, Do the Work, The Artist's Journey, Tides of War, The Legend of Bagger Vance, Last of the Amazons, Virtues of War, The Afghan Campaign, Killing Rommel, The Profession, The Lion's Gate, The Warrior Ethos, The Authentic Swing, An American Jew, Nobody Wants to Read Your Sh*t, and The Knowledge.

He is a graduate of Duke University and is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps.

And, interesting facts – he wrote for 27 years before he got his first novel published (The Legend of Bagger Vance). During that time he worked 21 different jobs in eleven states. The jobs included advertising copywriter, schoolteacher, tractor-trailer driver, bartender, oilfield roustabout, an attendant in a mental hospital, fruit–picking migrant worker, and Hollywood screenwriter.
