Synopsis: Over the years, Eric Maisel has worked with thousands of creative people, including writers, musicians, artists, dancers, and actors. He knows firsthand the struggles they must face, and through his many books and professional practice he’s helped them find balance in their lives while pursuing their artistic endeavors. Firmly grounded in psychology, Creativity for Life explores all the challenges confronting an artist: deciding if you have talent (or if that’s even important); determining your level of commitment; pursuing stardom; honing your craft; overcoming blocks; taking care of the business end of your artistic life; finding your place in culture; coming out as an artist; finding love and friendship inside and out of your artistic community; and using your art to explore your inner life. A comprehensive approach to the much-misunderstood artist's life, this book, contains both nuts-and-bolts ideas and exercises and inspiration to nurture growth as an artist and a person. It includes update and expanded material from Maisel's Life in the Arts.

From the Back Cover: "This book will save new artists and working artists years of wasted effort and thousands of dollars in therapy. This is a brilliant, wonderful book -- a bible. Maisel is a sage."
-- Heather Sellers, PhD, author of Georgia Under Water and Page After Page

"Eric Maisel has done it again! This indispensable guide to actually living as an artist must be on every working artist's shelf to be read again and again. Ten thumbs over the moon!"
-- Jennifer Louden, author of The Life Organizer and The Woman's Comfort Book

"In Creativity for Life, America's premier creativity coach delves deeply into the issues that challenge writers, artists, musicians, and performers and provides them with unique strategies and stimulating insights to achieve their creative destinies."
-- Nita Leland, artist and author of The New Creative Artist

"Eric Maisel is the therapist, counselor, coach, and friend we all want and need. He provides the psychological tools to help artists lead a mature, functioning, productive, and enriching personal and creative life."
-- Bobette Buster, adjunct professor, USC School of Cinematic Arts and La Fémis, Paris

"Eric Maisel has taught me more about the creative life and how to live it successfully than any other author. Creativity for Life is for anyone who has ever dared to live an extraordinary and fully exposed life."
-- Sharon Lebell, author of The Art of Living: The Classic Manual on Virtue, Happiness, and Effectiveness

"This is the most comprehensive book on creativity that I have encountered. I will make this book required reading for the students in my creativity coaching training as well as for clients embarking upon a creative path."
-- Jill Badonsky, MEd, creativity coaching trainer and author of The Nine Modern Day Muses (and a Bodyguard)

"If you are an artist who wants to get a project finished, read this book. It gave me new understanding of my artist personality and why I put things off. Most important, it gave me new courage to forge the path I know I have to take."
-- Coleen Rajotte, documentary filmmaker

"Eric Maisel speaks as the artist's friend and ally. His book will serve as a powerful encouragement for people who undertake the courageous and often lonely adventure of finding, protecting, and nourishing their creative voice."
-- Stephen Nachmanovitch, author of Free Play: The Power of Improvisation in Life and the Arts
