This book is the “tough love” version of the Artist’s Way.  Milton Katselas was a famous American director mentored by the likes of Elia Kazan. In this book, he talks about how no one cares about your dreams unless you’re doing something about them (action). He also has a handy page of unexpected heroes, from a 5’4” basketball player to Robert Redford, who was originally considered “too good looking” to be a serious artist.
