Really Good

The book itself is amazing.
Set it to 1.5 to 1.8 speed. The speed is quite slow to be honest.
I highly advise this audio. Just make sure you have a pen and pad. You are going to want to take notes.

Amazing! With one exception.. action items excluded

This book’s content is a 5/5! I learned so much! It was a quick read with so much value in every chapter. The only downside to this audiobook in my opinion though was at the end of each chapter, the author would say to refer to the book for the chapter action items. I was disappointed that such practical applications were not included in the audio. I purchased the audio book to get all the content, not all content except the action items.

Change your life with small steps

this book doesn't present any new science or discovery. What it preaches has long been known to us; it's the small things done consistently that make the difference

after reading this book, I had the urge to make changes in my life. This book was written well, well enough to give me the kick in the bum

if I had 1 criticism, it would be that the research done on this book wasn't deep enough to my liking. for example, when he talked about health, he usually referred to dr Oz.

Or when he talked about the time Oprah gave away a car to every audience member, saying that it was Oprah who went the extra mile when im fact that giveaway was fully sponsored by Pontiac to promote their new car model

Being a nut for proper facts it does bother me, but I wouldn't let that get in the way of me appreciating a well written book. Anyone who wants to change their life should read this

Remedial Read: Level 4th or 5th

Nothing profound or really insightful here. This book is basically a list of light stories about common sense subjects peppered with the usual “super achiever” quotes. I’m judging this book harsher because of this authors reference to Jim Rohn being his mentor. By that metric this book is super weak. Let me save everyone 4-6 hours of their lives and $15 by telling you that little incremental things add up to big things. Baby steps, persistence, accountability, choices, the end.

One of the best self building books I have ever re

I love this book at 1.25 speed. Lots of life changing easy life hacks for self improvement. I take lots of notes. A gem of a book, wealth of info and knowledge I love it.
I am using some of the principles and they have already paid off and I have noticed great improvement in just a few days only.

awesome delivery of knowledge

was lavish in its density of nutrition and yet easily absorbed through narrators ability to keep the mind engaged with vivid examples.

Rien de vraiment nouveau

Il s'agit pour l'auteur simplement d'un nouveau prisme pour distiller tous les conseils de self-hep que l'on connait déjà.
Ces conseils sont bons, ça fait du bien de les entendre, mais rien de neuf sous le Soleil.
Globalement décevant et too fluffy. Tous les bons conseils pourraient tenir en une heure au max.
