For those who enjoyed the movie’300’ you will love β€œGates of Fire”. It’s the intellectual companion to that movie.

Wow, a lot of shade being thrown at Substack creators. LOL I think Pressfield is talking about marketing materials. Substack is not as "bloggy" as Out There, or as Medium.com. True, all writers could benefit from taking a more critical look at their drafts.

I think the real problem on Substack is simply not having enough time to read all the good stuff on offer!

It's true, Paul. That's why my Substack offerings are limited in length to the time it takes for an average dump. OK, crass but true.

This should be a compulsory read for anyone writing on Substack.
