Reviews

"[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."
