"A must read for anyone hoping to live a creative life... I dare you not to be inspired to be brave, to be free, and to be curious.” —PopSugar

From the worldwide bestselling author of Eat Pray Love: the path to the vibrant, fulfilling life you’ve dreamed of
Readers of all ages and walks of life have drawn inspiration and empowerment from Elizabeth Gilbert’s books for years. Now this beloved author digs deep into her own generative process to share her wisdom and unique perspective about creativity. With profound empathy and radiant generosity, she offers potent insights into the mysterious nature of inspiration. She asks us to embrace our curiosity and let go of needless suffering. She shows us how to tackle what we most love, and how to face down what we most fear. She discusses the attitudes, approaches, and habits we need in order to live our most creative lives. Balancing between soulful spirituality and cheerful pragmatism, Gilbert encourages us to uncover the “strange jewels” that are hidden within each of us. Whether we are looking to write a book, make art, find new ways to address challenges in our work,  embark on a dream long deferred, or simply infuse our everyday lives with more mindfulness and passion, Big Magic cracks open a world of wonder and joy.

    Big Magic inspired me the whole time I read it! There’s something to what she’s saying that ever person needs to read! It’s written in a way that makes you as a reader feeling you’re having a conversation with you! I was very moved to action during my reading!! I would definitely recommend it to someone who is in a slump of any sort

    This is the best book I have read about writing and creativity. I just wished I would have read it in my twenties instead of my sixties. We should just go out and create.

  • A unique perspective on creativity

    I purchased this book on a whim-- hoping to be inspired-- and i wasn't disappointed. I own a creative business, and Elizabeth's notion of "big magic" in creative ideas really struck me. I don't think i'll look at ideas and how they come into our lives, the same. This was a wonderful read, and i highly recommend it for the creative entrepreneur. Thank you Liz for bringing big magic into our lives!
