It's rather repetitive, though I've enjoyed my time listening it. The purpose of being more present and insightful is thoroughly appreciated.

I honestly expected to learn about mindfulness, but it didn't give much insight. So deceiving.

This is a book about how to live healthier, ditching cereals and sugars and adopting healthy habits. I really liked the way it's narrated.

Every time you express yourself more clearly, more concisely, more forcefully, more convincingly, more powerfully - you rise above your competition.

Extremely interesting and well structured.
For advanced English speakers with a base of linguistics.
I enjoyed every explanation. Although, it would be a great addition to increase the number of anecdotes, in order to keep the listeners more engaged.
