From Hilter to Amanda Knox, the CIA to Cuba, and a lot of other examples, Talking to Strangers takes the psychological theories put forth by others and applies them to some fascinating case studies of histories famed, fortunate and and misfortune. The use of voice recordings and voice reenactment make the message of the book that much more personal while the constant relationship between chapters and the constant building up help us understand how we think the way we do. A great podcast-esque audiobook which is easily digested and highly informative

Nothing in this book is unattainable, success is a series of systems that you can create yourself to progress and develop into the person you want to be.

We all want to wake up at X am or go to the gym Y number of times a week but we've conditioned ourselves to make these goals unattractive and hard. James provides very logical and rational insights on how to better organize your life in a manner where you build successful habits that can lead you to those end goals.

Highly recommended for any person looking to break bad habits and build good habits or for those looking for better understanding of how habits affect our daily lives

Thought provoking, insightful, and valuable

I was extremely satisfied from my listening of this book. I will definitely be listening to some of the chapters again to expand on my already expansive notes. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to understand the problems of yesterday and today while wanting to learn what's to come in the future as we progress through a world that is ever changing in all aspects of life.

Inspiration at its finest

Perfect as a story, self help, or even for a fresh perspective. Not all of us need to aspire to do what David Goggins has accomplished but to apply the mindset of callusing your mind: whether at your job, at home, in your daily life, that is this books greatest benefit, to help us understand how much potential we have inside of us and that it's never too late to unlock that potential if we believe in ourselves
