Who's Publishing What: Start More Than You Can Finish

What if that unexplored idea would have changed everything?

In Start More Than You Can Finish (Chronicle Prism), writer, artist and entrepreneur Becky Blades offers a powerful new mindset: acting on more ideas makes us happier — and reveals our highest creativity. Using findings from neuroscience and hundreds of interviews, Blades shows how facing the blank page and the blank stage becomes easier when we build starting skills and recast our view of the finish.  

The book has been named a “must read” and “the most essential nonfiction books of the year” by The Next Big Idea Club, curated by Malcolm Gladwell, Adam Grant, Susan Cain and Daniel Pink.

Blades’ first book, Do Your Laundry or You’ll Die Alone, Advice Your Mom Would Give if She Thought You Were Listening, which she wrote and illustrated, was named a Best Books of 2014 and one of the Top 100 Indie Releases by Kirkus Reviews. It received the prestigious Kirkus Starred Review and was an Amazon best seller for six consecutive years.
