Ignore Everybody: and 39 Other Keys to Creativity
If you want to work in music, media, entertainment, or any other competitive industry you've probably heard more than your fair share of naysayers. People who think you are unreasonable, irresponsible, or just downright crazy always seem to be the loudest and most willing to speak up.

Well, if you're beginning to believe them and think you might actually be losing your mind, then you've clearly never heard of Hugh MacLeod. What is he known for? Well he is an author. But, he is most known for creating humorous, artistic drawings on the back of business cards. I bet countless people thought he was nuts along the way.

In his book Ignore Everybody: and 39 Other Keys to Creativity, MacLeod shares just that: how to embrace creativity and learn to ignore the conventions and the people that tell you your dream is impossible. The book also includes many of his famous business card drawings which make it an especially entertaining read. You can read a large portion of the book for free on MacLeod's website here.
