“What a good artist understands is that nothing comes from nowhere.” – A. Kleon
This book has been on my shelves since it was published in 2012 and I read it annually. Creativity is something every strength coach uses on a day-to-day basis and Steal Like An Artist is a great tool to remind you how to use that creativity. Kleon does a fantastic job of relaying simple ideas and allowing the reader to draw their own conclusions. Although at times the book can seem a little too “pie in the sky” to me, the general idea of creating something you can be proud of and sharing it with others is a principle I can always stand behind.
Steal Like An Artist is a short book (147 pages) and is only long enough for Kleon to discuss his “10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative.” There are a lot of illustrations that accompany the text which makes for an even faster read. At the end of the book Kleon gives steps for the reader to use to become more creative. I recommend this book for any strength coach looking to start using his/her creativity in everyday life not just in the weight room. This book also makes a great gift for a graduating athlete.
