I have yet to read Gilbert’s biggest-selling Eat, Pray, Love, which is mentioned constantly in her latest book. Big Magic is Gilbert’s guide on creative living—or bringing out your hidden treasures. Her advice is simply to do what you enjoy. For Gilbert, writing is what she does, but you can do anything as long as you enjoy doing it. Your enjoyment doesn’t have to do with making a living, although it wouldn’t hurt. Big Magic is an inspiring book for anyone who is looking for a creative journey, but is it a helpful guide to students and newcomers in the field of design.
