Product Details


“An authentic masterpiece. Erik Wahl has become a bona fide general in the ‘War of Art.’ ”
Steven Pressfield, author of The War of Art

“True creativity is as much about the disciplined grind as it is the spark of inspi­ration. Erik Wahl will permanently change the way you think about pursuing innovation. Highly recommended.”
Cal Newport, author of Deep Work

“My advice to every young entrepreneur? Adopt Erik’s thesis: Stop treating your ideas so preciously. Make them real. Tangible. Taste them and touch them. When an idea sparks, get in the dirt, grind it out, and let the idea evolve . . . or don’t expect sh*t.”
Gary Vaynerchuk, author of Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook

“Time to stop dreaming and start doing. In this breakthrough book, Erik Wahl will open the door for you to do the hard work of making something creative happen.”
 Seth Godin, author of Linchpin

“What an absolute gem of a book. Many creativity books overemphasize either inspiration or perspiration, but Wahl shows how to harness them together to do brilliant work. Anyone who has to create for a living will find The Spark and the Grind is both thoroughly enjoyable and imminently practical.”
Todd Henry, author of The Accidental Creative

“As Erik Wahl shows in this terrific book, we must cultivate ways to ignite the spark of innovation and then keep it glowing with the grind of focused, disci­plined work. This formula will send your creativity soaring!”
Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and To Sell Is Human

“Wahl is offering a way to unlock the nascent power of creativity, yes, but he is also offering a way to unlock life’s treasures—to experience again the wonder you felt as a child at what you now take for granted. His observations are relevant to anyone with a pulse.”
