I was a huge fan of WHAM as a little girl... Loved, loved, LOVED George Michael and actually had a little shrine set up on my nightstand that house the Make It Big album, buttons and any other WHAM paraphernalia I could afford at that young of an age. My daughter fell in love with Last Christmas when she was 6, and I was thrilled when I saw Wake Me Up Before you Go Go on her Spotify favourites list. It was clear that we had to listen to the book. Andrew Ridgeley’s voice and elegance in his story-telling had us coming back over and over, most often listening in the kitchen during our dinner-making time. We would quite often pause the book in order to jump online and find the songs Andrew spoke of during the timeline of releases.

It has been a true gem in the time of COVID slow down - showing the courage it takes to stay focused and passionate, having fun along the way, and knowing when to let go with grace. Thank you Andrew Ridgeley for this. Very well done!
P.S. We both agree that your voice is dreamy!

Really Enjoyed - Great Insights

I find it quite humorous all of the complaints around the reader's performance, especially when a main theme in the book is about releasing judgement and focusing on possibilities and acceptance.

The fact that it isn't perfect makes it relatable and therefore removes any limitations that perfection is the only way to success.

The content is like a basket of practical gems. I cannot wait to listen to it again - with pen and paper in hand - to capture and practice the mantras and steps.

This has been the first book on Audible that I've flown through - repeating a few parts just to savour the knowledge - and feel it was a privilege to read it, especially at this time where I'm launching into 24/7 in the Zone of Genius.

With a variety of ideas and practical exercises that each had their own impact, Gay Hendricks is truly an effective thought leader and joy - creating storyteller.

It was both validating and enlightening at the same time. Very valuable read.
