Product description

Review

The Creative Habit emphasizes the work habits that lead to success.

-- C. Carr, O: The Oprah Magazine

[An] exuberant, philosophically ambitious self-help book for the creatively challenged.

-- The New York Times Book Review

[A]s accessible, smart and eye-opening as her dance.

-- Linda Winer, Newsday

An entertaining 'how to' guide,
The Creative Habit isn't about getting the lightning bolt of inspiration, but rather the artistic necessity of old-fashioned virtues such as discipline, preparation and routine.

-- Cathleen McGuigan, Newsweek

Though its context is a choreographer's world, its principles are universally applicable and sound....It could change your life.

-- Elizabeth Zimmer, The Village Voice

Twyla Tharp's amazingly plain-spoken treatise...is a frank, honest, and tough-love testament essentially arguing that art and creativity are matters of hard, old-fashioned work.

-- Sid Smith, The Chicago Tribune
