It's the same format - quick chapters with full page black and white photos, quotes from famous folks that you will be pinning to your studio walls,lots of his newspaper blackout phrases, and the same simple noteworthy advice that Kleon is so good at!

If you are looking for a step-by-step how-to guide to getting rich and famous at novel writing or art selling, this isn't it. But if you want a fun cheerleader-type book chocked full of good advice that's to the point and easy to follow, Kleon is your man.
