  • The Code of the Extraordinary Mind

The Code of the Extraordinary Mind is a blueprint of laws to break us free from the shackles of ordinary life. It makes a case that everything we know about the world is mostly decided not by rational choice but instead by conditioning and habit. And thus most people live their lives based on limiting rules and outdated beliefs about pretty much everything - love, work, money, parenting, sex, health, and more - that they inherit and pass on from generation to generation.

After listening to this book I was ready to take on the world. Then I went to the website and I downloaded the app believing the author when he said that he would be providing extra free content to my surprise there was nothing there that was free everything led me to joining his extraordinary group for a couple hundred dollars.

Now I wouldn’t mind if the author was upfront with me but I was led to believe that he was providing me with a lot of extra content and I was really disappointed when I found out that it wasn’t true.
Although I really enjoyed the book I thought the performance was exceptional and overall found the book inspiring. The book lost all credibility once I went to the website and realize that I couldn’t get access to any of the content he promised in the audiobook. However If I missed something I would really like to know because overall the content in this book makes a lot of sense but to me this book is a big commercial for the authors website

Present moment awareness is an essential ingredient in life if one expects to experience any degree of authentic peace and contentment. It has been acknowledged for centuries as the cornerstone of spiritual awakening in all traditions of Eastern thought. In the West, however, it is still a relatively unrecognized concept for living. The Western mind is always restless, never content with the moment.

Content was very good but the pace of the book was a little slow the narrator showed very little emotion and with a soft voice made it a little hard for me to listen to. Overall I think I would rather read this book than listen to it.

Mindset is one of those rare audio books that can help you make positive changes in your life and at the same time see the world in a new way. A leading expert in motivation and personality psychology, Carol Dweck has discovered in more than 20 years of research that our mindset is not a minor personality quirk: it creates our whole mental world. It explains how we become optimistic or pessimistic. It shapes our goals, our attitude toward work, and ultimately predicts whether or not we will fulfull our potential.

In this must-listen book for anyone striving to succeed, pioneering psychologist Angela Duckworth shows parents, educators, students, and businesspeople - both seasoned and new - that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent but a focused persistence called "grit". Why do some people succeed and others fail? Sharing new insights from her landmark research on grit, MacArthur "genius" Angela Duckworth explains why talent is hardly a guarantor of success.

I really loved the content and the lessons learned from this book will stay with me for a lifetime. I only pet peeve is the apparent self-promotion of the author. I think a little less about the author and a little more of other people's experience would make this book and easier listen and less narcissistic. Regardless of the tone of the book I would have 100% recommend this book to any parents who wants to help their kids succeed in life.
