Helpful. I love the theme that creative work is about habits and having a daily routine. I've always been drawn to discussions of the work itself that address this reality and Gavin's message, bolstered by his delightful artwork, demystifies the process. ( )

Nice set of inspirational stories includes writers, painters, scientists, and composers. The cartoon tales are built around quotes from the subjects and are pretty effective. They are followed by a page or two of biography. The author adds his own tips at the end, and they are on point. ( )
