This was a fantastic read. I kept thinking, "I wish I had read this book sooner". This is a must-read for anyone who is remotely creative and I'd even recommend it for those who think they are not. I also enjoyed Ms. Tharp's stories about the dance world -- she has been a world-famous choregrapher for several decades.read more

Our College of Fine Arts at Troy University chose The Creative Habit as an across-the-curriculum book that all students and faculty are reading and referring to in their classes. The advice and observations from Twyla work effortlessly into my own classes and have generated many stimulating discussions. It is exciting to see students so enthused with reading assignments! I highly recommend this book. It will recharge your own creative habit.read more

I'm really enjoying this! I've been reading it bit by bit on my lunch breaks. It's helpful in terms of thinking through your own creative process and also hearing about someone else's. I think creativity is one of those things people don't reflect on very much and aren't aware of.read more

Phenomenal Book. Everyone should read this, whether you consider yourself creative or not. Easily one of my favorite non-fiction books.

A wonderful book on creativity and how to organize your life to make room in your day for your creative side and for creative fulfillment, regardless what you do for a living. Tharp's medium is dance, but her thoughts and advice apply to anyone working in a creative field, such as writing, photography, painting, etc. An interesting look into the mind of a creative woman.

The only book on creativity that I find myself going back to again and again. Twyla offers a series of exercises to spark creativity, but also has a lot of insight into the creative process. Her specialty is dance, but her thoughts are applicable to any creative field. I really enjoy and recommend this over all other books in its genre.
