Book review: ‘Steal Like an Artist’ by Austin Kleon

‘Steal Like an Artist’ by Austin Kleon

As with Austin Kleon’s later books, Show Your Work, and Keep Going, the subtitle says it all: stealing like an artist is just one of the ‘10 things nobody told you about being creative’.

As with the other books in the series, there’s some sound advice in here—even though, I would contend, despite the claim of the subtitle, some of the advice is far from original. But a fun and motivating read.

As with the other books in the series, I feel compelled to point out that Steal Like an Artist is rather expensive for such a short book.
