Product description

Review

"Austin Kleon is one of the brightest new minds on the creative landscape. Show Your Work! demonstrates why. With simple yet profound insights, and an array of his amazing images, he casts aside old stereotypes of the creative life and tells what it's really like." - Daniel Pink, author of To Sell is Human and Drive

[Show Your Work is] timeless; readers can return to it repeatedly throughout life and still glean useful ideas and tips... Anyone starting out (or starting over)...will find upbeat encouragement here.
--Library Journal

"Some people are natural self-promoters. For others, it's painfully difficult to put their work out there. In this creatively designed pocket-sized book, Kleon offers the latter group effective strategies that allow them to share their work without leaving their comfort zone.... Kleon's advice is sassy and spot-on."
--Publishers Weekly

"[The] subtitle could just as easily be, 'How to Self-promote Without Being a Jerkface.' It's an incredibly useful and compulsively readable short book."
--Fast Company

"Kleon addresses with equal parts humility, honesty, and humor one of the quintessential questions of the creative life: How do you get 'discovered'? In some ways, the book is the mirror-image of Kleon's debut -- rather than encouraging you to 'steal' from others... it offers a blueprint to making your work influential enough to be theft-worthy."
--Brain Pickings

"A must-read for anyone involved in the creative process."
--LibraryReads


"Kleon's powerful advice makes this small-format book not-at-all little."
--Booklist

"In this motivating book, packed with smart approaches, ideas and quotes, Kleon teaches you how best to navigate through creative work in the present day. . . . A certain and deserved bestseller."
--The Bookseller

"It's not often that I find myself reviewing a book that I can say has already changed my life. . . . At a crucial turn in this fabulous little wallop of a book comes the simple directive, 'Share something small every day.' That 'something' oughtn't be your Instagrammed latte or a selfie, but something 'useful or interesting' about your work. Put enough somethings out there, and a lone artist or entrepreneur can soon be a productive part of a creative community."

I don't tend to write reviews or be a so called "fan" of anybody, but, I am obsessed with his books and weekly newsletters. Each book was perfectly timed for me and where my head was at.
