Steal like an Artist

Wed 30 January 2013 by Thejaswi Puthraya

Austin Kleon, is a US based writer and artist and "Steal like an artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative" is his second book. I found this book in a doctor's waiting room and started paging through because it sounded exciting.

The book comprises 170 pages with half of them being awesome doodles. I finished the book in 30 minutes and was scratching my head on what new the book had to offer and why it is branded a "NYTimes Best Seller"? The book is mostly a collection of quotes and fairly common advice. Next time you head out to a book store, leaf through this book and replace it at the rack.
