May 9, 2017This book might make you rich. Aspiring artists: heed the lesson in these pages. Right now, you're drunk with ambition, picturing your name up there with Kubrick, Hemingway, Van Gogh, Charles Schultz, Boots Randolph, whoever. You swoon at the thought of being showered with pay and praise for creating art, doing something you love, and being rewarded and appreciated by an audience that feels blessed to have you walk on their Earth. You've been told that you can achieve anything if you work for it, that you should follow your dreams. All that bumper-sticker crap. This book oughta wake you up to the more likely possibility that you will end up standing before the exit gate of life empty-handed, having spent your best years chasing rainbows, risking everything for pipe dreams that remain far out of reach, with no fall-back plan. So how could The Last Book make you rich? Read it and learn from Wolf’s mistake of dedicating himself to art. Go learn a useful skill, a trade, something rare and... More > in demand, and do that with your life instead. If you must create art, do it for fun, as a hobby on the side. Don’t count on making a living from it, let alone getting famous or rich. Don’t be lured by the tiny minority who have somehow managed exactly that. For every one of them, there’s hundreds of thousands who failed. If you want to play the lottery, do it with a couple bucks, not with your life. Sure, you might have talent. But talent is everywhere. Everyone thinks they’ve got what it takes. But having what it takes isn’t enough. Even the best need luck. Even the talented don’t make it. It’s not a foregone conclusion that if you work hard, you will succeed. If it were that easy, everyone would be doing it. I deduct a star because Mr. DeVoon leaves out some of the maddening details that a tell-all should tell. But the lesson to be learned here is worth the price of admission. This book might not make you rich after all, but it very well save you from poverty, despair, insanity, and self-publishing. So there's that.< Less
