Description

In his New York Times bestseller Steal Like an Artist, Austin Kleon showed readers how to unlock their creativity by
“stealing” from the community of other movers and shakers. Now, in an even more forward-thinking and necessary book, he
shows how to take that critical next step on a creative journey—getting known.

Show Your Work! is about why generosity trumps genius. It’s about getting findable, about using the network instead of
wasting time “networking.” It’s not self-promotion, it’s self-discovery—let others into your process, then let them
steal from you. Filled with illustrations, quotes, stories, and examples, Show Your Work! offers ten transformative
rules for being open, generous, brave, productive.

In chapters such as You Don’t Have to Be a Genius; Share Something Small Every Day; and Stick Around, Kleon creates a
user’s manual for embracing the communal nature of creativity— what he calls the “ecology of talent.” From broader life
lessons about work (you can’t find your voice if you don’t use it) to the etiquette of sharing—and the dangers of
oversharing—to the practicalities of Internet life (build a good domain name; give credit when credit is due), it’s an
inspiring manifesto for succeeding as any kind of artist or entrepreneur in the digital age.
