ABOUT THE ORIGINAL BOOK Although it appears otherwise, creativity is inherent in human nature, however, fear and other factors prevent us from exploiting it properly. Big Magic: The Creative Life Beyond Fear, by Elizabeth Gilbert, is a book that uses anecdotes and motivational passages to encourage readers to embrace their creativity. Thanks to the fact that this work includes many real-life experiences, the reader will be able to identify what hinders their creativity and find what they can do to improve it. This book is a guide that presents applicable principles for anyone who wants to experience their creative side. Explore the paths that they specify: turn your dreams and desires into reality. Although all human beings can be creative, perseverance is vital to being successful. Like many other things in life, creativity requires work. In this book you will find some fundamentals with which you will implement useful strategies that will allow you to handle the fears, frustrations and blockages of your creative activity. Therefore, you will understand the joy and spiritual attitude that is required to express yourself freely. Elizabeth Gilbert achieved in this work a very lively and entertaining prose. This results in the reader being trapped in its pages, allowing you to understand what it means to live a life governed by creativity and courage, with fear being annihilated. It is a recommended book for creative professionals, writers and artists, and for anyone who intends to innovate any part of their lives.ABOUT ELIZABETH GILBERT: THE AUTHOR OF THE ORIGINAL BOOKElizabeth Gilbert is an American author and journalist known worldwide for her book Eat, Pray and Love. Gilbert's writing focuses on both fiction and nonfiction, styles that have allowed her to develop her ability as a writer. In Big Magic, Elizabeth relied on her own experiences as a creator, so the problems that new artists face are not unknown to her. In her works, Gilbert tends to make use of motivational passages that she illustrates with anecdotes that everyone can relate to. These experiences include various details and examples about the creative process of the writer, as well as some advice on the strategies that worked for her and those that did not. In addition to the anecdotes, there are written quotes by various people and they write their own motivational phrases to inspire the reader. Big Magic is not a newspaper in which Gilbert narrates her successes and creative freedom, but it also provides a constant motivation for readers to embrace their creativity and overcome the fears that may be restraining them.

It's 3 a.m. and Elizabeth Gilbert is sobbing on the bathroom floor. She's in her thirties, she has a husband, a house, they're trying for a baby - and she doesn't want any of it. A bitter divorce and a turbulent love affair later, she emerges battered and bewildered and realises it is time to pursue her own journey in search of three things she has been missing: pleasure, devotion and balance. So she travels to Rome, where she learns Italian from handsome, brown-eyed identical twins and gains twenty-five pounds, an ashram in India, where she finds that enlightenment entails getting up in the middle of the night to scrub the temple floor, and Bali where a toothless medicine man of indeterminate age offers her a new path to peace: simply sit still and smile. And slowly happiness begins to creep up on her.

Finalist for the National Book Award 2002 Look out for Elizabeth Gilbert’s new book, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear, on sale now! In this rousing examination of contemporary American male identity, acclaimed author and journalist Elizabeth Gilbert explores the fascinating true story of Eustace Conway. In 1977, at the age of seventeen, Conway left his family's comfortable suburban home to move to the Appalachian Mountains. For more than two decades he has lived there, making fire with sticks, wearing skins from animals he has trapped, and trying to convince Americans to give up their materialistic lifestyles and return with him back to nature. To Gilbert, Conway's mythical character challenges all our assumptions about what it is to be a modern man in America; he is a symbol of much we feel how our men should be, but rarely are. From the Trade Paperback edition.
