"In The Power of Daily Practice, Eric Maisel does more than illustrate why a daily practice can be any creative person's (that means all of us) most powerful tool. He also gives us, point by inspiring point, components that make up such a practice. He leads would-be practitioners through a variety of potential daily practices that can enrich their lives. Finally, with generosity and clarity, Maisel offers practical solutions and creative ideas to meet any challenges along the way. This is an altogether complete and invigorating manual for living a rich and meaningful life, day in and day out."
