Creative Fight, The Reviews

I've said it other places and I'll say it again... Chris Orwig's 'The Creative Fight' is absolutely brilliant. I have the book in my hands and am sincerely moved. A complete interrupter. It's a new standard in catalyzing creativity. I could not recommend this more highly. Dane Sanders
