Great Audiobook, but Dig Deeper.

I love the structure of this audiobook. It’s packed with live coaching sessions, which is fun to listen to and dissect. While this audiobook was well edited and produced, the depth of the content is lacking for me.

Instead of tackling the more common issues like procrastination, self-doubt, grief and anger, why not delve deeper? What about people plagued with issues that are arguably just as common but far less talked about? Mel uncovers people’s faults and weaknesses (as well as strengths) by studying their subtle behaviour patterns, but I’d like to see her do this for more extreme behaviours and people.

What about people with high-functioning hyperactive disorders, people with explosive anger problems, overt megalomaniacs, narcissists, egomaniacs, etc.. What if we took highly successful, yet tortured people and tried to coach them? I want to see Mel challenged and fix those challenges as a life coach. This audiobook makes it feel too easy and leaves much to be desired.

I’m interested in what the other side of the coin looks like and how Mel Robbins would delve into the psyche of more complex, manipulative individuals as well. That would break through the thin layer of mediocrity.

Other than that, excellent audiobook.

Grant Makes Us Want to Do More

This audiobook was great because Grant took the time to narrate it himself. Although this book lacks concrete step-by-step sales tips and formulas, it makes up for it by being super clear about how to achieve success and keep success coming. So many of us underestimate what it takes to become successful and Grant exposes us to a new way of thinking, which helps remove some of the negative programming our parents and society has taught us. I would recommend this audiobook to anybody who wants to achieve more or anybody who’s in a business rut or plateau.

I've experienced sleeping problems for a while and wanted Stevenson's strategies summarized so that I could revise them at any time. This summary was delivered well and taught me a couple new things. Not bad for the price and convenience.
