The Creative Act: A Way of Being by Rick Rubin

Rick Rubin is more than just a music producer; he’s a game-changer, the creator of a space where artists can find their sound and their inner selves. Some of the greatest and best-known songs of three generations have been produced under his guidance—from Jay-Z’s 99 Problems to System of a Down’s B.Y.O.B. to Adele’s I Found a Boy.

In the pages of The Creative Act, Rubin shares the lessons he’s learned about the very act of creating, and its importance in the lives of every thinking, breathing, living human being. In just a few hundred pages, a lifetime of experience in creating is distilled into simple, easy-to-understand lessons that will forever change the way you look at the creative process.
