“What an inspiring little book! It’s a quick read, but don’t let the length or cute illustrations fool you—it could be just the motivation you need to get started on your dream.”
Lori Deschene, Author and Founder of Tiny Buddha
“Occasionally a scream escapes from hell’s vent; a wail of warning to heed lest you abandon your own will for the dull-witted, media-driven, accidental destiny you’ve clung to like a life preserver. Friends, NFA is not a life preserver — it is a life saver. Stop f*ing around! Now! NFA4EVR!”
Steve Butcher, CEO Brown Paper Tickets
Sometimes we need a little tough LOVE and this book does that. Creating art is what makes my soul happiest, but sometimes I struggle to bring myself to do what I say I love. This book is a quick motivator. You’ll dig deep really quick, learn success principals and you get to choose do you want to F-around or get serious. Right after reading the book I taught myself WordPress and launched an eCommerce site selling my work and it started a ripple effect of new doors opening, and new teachers arriving. I know I’m on the right path and I’m happy. This book is a gateway to launch dreams. It’s awesome!”
Nichole, Amazon Review
Not F*ing Around is a kick in the pants for anyone whose dreams are simmering on the back burner. Unlike many preachy self-help guides out there, the spirit of this book revs you up— to launch a wacky start-up business, make a bold career change, or just get off the sofa and jump onto the express train of life. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to get back to work on that novel I need to finish!”
Bernard Resnick, Entertainment lawyer and musician
Not F*ing Around is a great pocket-guide for the long road to achieving one’s own definition of success. Deep thoughts masquerading as light-hearted anecdotes and challenges. Easy and fun read. A motivating kick-in-the-ass, padded by the author’s own funny trials and tribulations.”
Michael Lewis, Photographer for Rolling Stone, Variety, New York Times
“I loved the way Leisawitz lays out the steps for living the life you want. He has a laid-back, approachable writing style that definitely gets to the point. The chapter titled “Start Before You Are Ready” really hit home. Thanks for the inspiration!
Tracy M., Amazon Review
Not F*ing Around is at first blush whimsical, provocative, and often flat-out hilarious. Its accessibility and ease ought not disguise the fact that it posits profound insights into the nature of creative expression at its core, not only for writers but for artistic souls engaged in any and all media and platforms. Its language is infectious. The narrative overflows with good will and optimism even as it confronts the pain, frustration, and heartache that inevitably accompany the creative life.”
Prof. Richard Walter, Screenwriting Chairman, Associate Dean, UCLA School of Theater, Film, and Television
“Everyone should read this book. Really! It will get you jumped started like nothing else will.”
Kate McDermott, Author of ‘Art of the Pie’
“As Jeff mentions in his book, we don’t have a lot of time on this planet. But anyone who is in a creative rut should definitely take the short time that is required to read NFA. If you’re gonna write a book about NFA you better be able to get to the point. Jeff does so quickly, efficiently, and with great heart & humor. I honestly can’t wait to read the book again and refer to it whenever I find myself in a funk.”
