Show Your Work! by Austin Kleon reviewed at Escape Into Life

Just a short post to say that I've posted my review of Show Your Work! by Austin Kleon over at Escape Into Life. Kleon burst on the scene with the similarly formatted Steal Like an Artist, and I suppose in a way they are companion pieces. It's a  snazzy little book and I enjoyed it, though I still have qualms about this culture in which we are all advertising ourselves all the time. But this is the age we live in, and it's probably a good idea to figure out where you really want to be in relation to the global exchange of information. Kleon puts perhaps the best spin on it and in any case is espousing taking the high road in all your interactions. Have fun with it.
