Autobiographically written by Jerry Wennstrom, The Inspired Heart: An Artist's Journey Of Transformation is the story of an artist's journey in  search of truth. In 1979, New York artist Jerry Wennstrom destroyed his own paintings, gave away his money and possessions, and sought to purge his personal identity, and in the process, open himself to wonder. This  remarkable artist's memoir is enhanced with black-and-white photographs and a 16-page inset section of full-color plates showcasing a series of magnificent interactive box art. The Inspired Heart is a unique and quite remarkable contribution to 20th Century Art History reading lists.
--Midwest Book Review:Midwest Book Review.

"This very well-written, full-color illustrated, first-person account of the creation of the re-born Jerry Wennstrom and his marvelous art is a transformational classic, in my humble opinion. When I was given this book, I devoured it immediately. I was humbled, inspired, stimulated, and changed by reading the details and viewing all of the wonderful photos of his remarkable journey. "I loved this book, related deeply to its message, and I think I will likely always consider it one of the jewels of transformational literature."  Joe Bankhead, editor, A Journal of a Wanderer on the Way of Transformation (for this book see: Travelers Tales.
