----------------------------------------------------

Forget the lone genius myth, says Kleon, author of the best-seller, Steal like an Artist (2012). His
10-step journey in this beginner’s guide to self-promotion emphasizes audience building and explains the how and why of
such approaches as thinking about process rather than product, sharing something each day, teaching what you know,
learning to take a punch, and developing staying power. Kleon’s use of artists’ quotes, photographs, and organizational
diagrams enhances the text as he reminds readers of how interested people are in the creative process. Become a
documentarian . . . start a journal . . . keep a scrapbook . . . see the work you’re doing more clearly and feel . . .
progress. When you’re ready to share, you’ll have a surplus of material. Put work out there and let people take their
best shot. Then make even more work and keep sharing it until you learn that criticism can’t hurt and may help you. And
stick with it. Kleon’s powerful advice makes this small-format book not-at-all little. --Whitney Scott

Review
------

"[Show Your Work is] timeless; readers can return to it repeatedly throughout life and still glean useful ideas and
tips... Anyone starting out (or starting over)...will find upbeat encouragement here."
―Library Journal

“Some people are natural self-promoters. For others, it’s painfully difficult to put their work out there. In this
creatively designed pocket-sized book, Kleon offers the latter group effective strategies that allow them to share their
work without leaving their comfort zone…. Kleon’s advice is sassy and spot-on.”
―Publishers Weekly

“[The] subtitle could just as easily be, ‘How to Self-promote Without Being a Jerkface.’ It’s an incredibly useful and
compulsively readable short book.”
―Fast Company

“Kleon addresses with equal parts humility, honesty, and humor one of the quintessential questions of the creative
life: How do you get ‘discovered’? In some ways, the book is the mirror-image of Kleon’s debut ― rather than encouraging
you to ‘steal’ from others… it offers a blueprint to making your work influential enough to be theft-worthy.”
―Brain Pickings

“A must-read for anyone involved in the creative process.”
―LibraryReads

“Kleon’s powerful advice makes this small-format book not-at-all little.”
―Booklist

“In this motivating book, packed with smart approaches, ideas and quotes, Kleon teaches you how best to navigate through
creative work in the present day. . . . A certain and deserved bestseller.”
―The Bookseller

“It’s not often that I find myself reviewing a book that I can say has already changed my life. . . . At a crucial turn
in this fabulous little wallop of a book comes the simple directive, ‘Share something small every day.’ That ‘something’
oughtn’t be your Instagrammed latte or a selfie, but something ‘useful or interesting’ about your work. Put enough
somethings out there, and a lone artist or entrepreneur can soon be a productive part of a creative community.”
