1. Mark McGuinness, «no matter what»
The title of the book more like a reference to the ruthless fighters of the 90’s, but correspondence: «How to overcome the fear of rejection and criticism on the road to your own dream,» puts everything in its place.

A lot from this try to make 200 cases in seconds before the dreaded word «deadline» and, of course, will fail.

3. Alex Cornell, «Again a creative crisis?»
Visible the inscription «90 proven ways» emblazoned on the cover for good reason: the book’s author friends sent 90 letters with a single question: «How do you deal with creative crisis?» Among the respondents were successful designers, photographers, artists, musicians and other artists.
