Fighting Off Writing Demons

Maryn McKenna on the WriterL e-mail list (subscription-only) suggests a book for keeping you from going crazy while you're writing: The War of Art, by Steven Pressfield (his site has excerpts and reviews). She says she usually reads one of the many one- or two-page chapters each day. She applauds it for "dispelling--or at least helping you to name and identify--your own internal resistance."

Anyone read it & have any thoughts? Or have another book to recommend for dealing with writing (as opposed to the joy of having written)?

I'm gonna click over to my library's catalog now to see if I can find a copy of The War of Art.
