"Ignore Everybody: And 39 Other Keys To Creativity" by Hugh MacLeod /// I won't beat the "creative freedom" genre into the ground here... but I have to add one more to the mix. It safely rounds 3 of my favorites (I exclude The Artist's Way from this because that book is a program, not just a simple read). Hugh manages to write to you as though you were an actual person. Yes, surprise, you ARE an actual person (I am too ;p). Why writers don't write more like Hugh does here... I don't know.
