In his New York Times bestseller STEAL LIKE AN ARTIST, Austin Kleon
showed readers how to unlock their creativity by stealing from the
community of other movers and shakers. Now, in an even more
forward-thinking and necessary book, he shows how to take that critical
next step on a creative journey getting known.

SHOW YOUR WORK is about
why generosity trumps genius. It s about getting findable, about using
the network instead of wasting time networking. It s not self-promotion,
it s self-discovery let others into your process, then let them steal
from you. Filled with illustrations, quotes, stories, and examples, SHOW YOUR WORK offers ten transformative rules for being open, generous,
brave, productive. In chapters such as You Don t Have to Be a Genius;
Share Something Small Every Day; and Stick Around, Kleon creates a user s
manual for embracing the communal nature of creativity what he calls
the ecology of talent. From broader life lessons about work (you can t
find your voice if you don t use it) to the etiquette of sharing and the
dangers of oversharing to the practicalities of Internet life (build a
good domain name; give credit when credit is due), it s an inspiring
manifesto for succeeding as any kind of artist or entrepreneur in the
digital age.
