As someone who likes to think of herself as a left-to-right-brain-balanced person, Todd Henry’s work fills my need to be an organized, fully-functioning creative, which I feel used to be an oxymoron, until authors like Todd entered the arena. I want to exalt the practical, because it’s often overlooked for more flowery language or grand existential themes in other similar books. With Louder Than Words, he grabs you by the shoulders and states the obvious that others (myself included) are afraid to state for risk of not being completely “original.” At times, his obvious statements may have only slightly insulted my intelligence (Ch. 5: empathy vs. sympathy was a little drawn out on the explanation between the two), but it’s more than acceptable because I understand and appreciate the point he wants to drive home. And truth be told, I can be thick-headed.Todd tells you straight up, this is a book for doers. I looked at that as a challenge to me as I continued through the book and now also as I implement the tested practices he has graciously provided. Ultimately, it is a book that resonated with me in my current situation, motivated me into immediate action with his workbook style questions, and one that I have immediately turned around and already started the 2nd read. This will be a book that lives by my computer, dog-eared and worn with fingerprints because I will continue to reference it on this journey to find and maintain my authentic voice and strive to do my best work everyday. Thank you, Todd. By Angela Hintonon August 11, 2015
