3 Book Recommendations by Charli Marie

  • Talk to Me

    Dean Nelson

    I think it should be a rule that anyone who interviews someone on stage should have to read this book first. https://t.co/M0YOySGhdH I’m only part way through it but have learned so much, and it’s made me crave a higher standard of interview as a viewer too.

  • You don’t need to be a genius, you just need to be yourself. That’s the message from Austin Kleon, a young writer and artist who knows that creativity is everywhere, creativity is for everyone. A manifesto for the digital age, Steal Like an Artist is a guide whose positive message, graphic look and illustrations, exercises, and examples will put readers directly in touch with their artistic side. When Mr. Kleon was asked to address college students in upstate New York, he shaped his speech around the ten things he wished someone had told him when he was starting out. The talk went viral, and its author dug deeper into his own ideas to create Steal Like an Artist, the book. The result is inspiring, hip, original, practical, and entertaining. And filled with new truths about creativity: Nothing is original, so embrace influence, collect ideas, and remix and re-imagine to discover your own path. Follow your interests wherever they take you. Stay smart, stay out of debt, and risk being boring—the creative you will need to make room to be wild and daring in your imagination.

    @kieran_tie Honestly can’t think of a single book I’ve ever read about web design sorry! That’s just not how I do design learning. In general I think everyone should read Steal Like an Artist by Austin Kleon, and also Atomic Habits by James Clear. But neither are specific to web design.

  • Atomic Habits

    James Clear

    James Clear presents strategies to form good habits, break bad ones, and master the tiny behaviors that help lead to an improved life.
