I know I’m late to the party, but this book is astounding. To read something like, “but my breakthrough still wouldn’t happen for another decade” reminds me that good work takes a long time to develop and the best art comes from people who are willing to spend years chipping away at their craft, hoping to discover something new in it. The trick that all the greats have learned is to make it seem like that process happened in an instant. Steve Martin is an absolute genius and true renaissance man… that much I knew. His thought process, though, is mind-blowing and even paradigm-shifting. All that to say, if you are an artist, speaker, educator, entrepreneur (and the list goes on) and haven’t read this, go get it now. It’s probably on the shelves of a used book store near you for under $5 and will give you a graduate level education in a single day. Astounding.
