Editor’s Note: This is a guest post from the folks at Bigger Pockets. Sometimes blogging isn’t fun. It’s not often you hear that, but I’m being real here.

It’s not where you take things from—it’s where you take them to. So says, the late great Jean-Luc Godard, one of many influential thinkers highlighted in Austin Kleon’s “Steal Like an Artist.” I picked up the short, pithy (and visually arresting) book mostly because the list format was appealing and the sketch-figure drawings promised something new and refreshing.
