You don’t need to be a genius, you just need to be yourself. That’s the message from Austin Kleon, a young writer and artist who knows that creativity is everywhere, creativity is for everyone. A manifesto for the digital age, Steal Like an Artist is a guide whose positive message, graphic look and illustrations, exercises, and examples will put readers directly in touch with their artistic side. When Mr. Kleon was asked to address college students in upstate New York, he shaped his speech around the ten things he wished someone had told him when he was starting out. The talk went viral, and its author dug deeper into his own ideas to create Steal Like an Artist, the book. The result is inspiring, hip, original, practical, and entertaining. And filled with new truths about creativity: Nothing is original, so embrace influence, collect ideas, and remix and re-imagine to discover your own path. Follow your interests wherever they take you. Stay smart, stay out of debt, and risk being boring—the creative you will need to make room to be wild and daring in your imagination.

Therefore, steal effectively by learning about your role models, imitating them and making a positive workspace for yourself. I wanted to read Steal Like An Artist by Austin Kleon ever since Julian Blanc once mentioned it in a YouTube video. It's not like the content was anything new to me but hearing it from (or rather reading it from) an artist helps to embrace our non-originality.

Before diving into this book, I had already read Show Your Work by the same author, so I was rather impatient to read this one, and it didn't deceive me. Austin Kleon doesn't pretend to pompously teach things that you don't already know.
