Publisher's Summary

"If you want to become the best you, but are unsure how to get there, start here." (Rachel Hollis, number one New York Times best-selling author of Girl, Wash Your Face and Girl, Stop Apologizing)

In this remarkable, life-changing new book, renowned inspirational speaker Trent Shelton shares his revolutionary tool kit for transforming your life and reaching your goals.

Trent Shelton seemed to have it all together - until everything fell apart. A college football standout, his NFL dreams died when he was cut from multiple teams. With no job and no prospects, learning he had a child out of wedlock on the way and numbing himself with whatever he could find, Trent then found out one of his closest friends had killed himself. Life seemed without hope - until Trent discovered the secret to finding promise in the darkest of times. And now he shares that secret with you. 

Writing from deep, been-there experience, Trent walks you on a journey to become the best hope-filled version of yourself. In The Greatest You, Trent will help you:

  • Become everything you are meant to be
  • Face the reality of your circumstances and realize your purpose in life
  • Break free from toxic environments and forgive those who've harmed you
  • And learn how to guard yourself against the pitfalls of life

Weaving together personal stories from his own life and from others who have also gone through hard times, Trent reveals how you can bring out the best in yourself and establish a happier, more fulfilled future for generations to come.

Too Religious

Did not realize this book was so religious. Probably wouldn't have listened to it if I had known that.

Heartfelt and just real

It's no wonder Trent's podcast that followed the book is called "straight up". His story, delivery and his actionable learnings are humbling and just overall real. It's a great book for someone who's considering practicing personal development, but just doesn't know where to start. An easy and inspiring listen!!

Skip the recorded book and listen to his podcast

Love this guy’s message and podcast...but this narration, awful. Can’t do it. He went to the ... William Shatner...school of...narration. A pause...after each....and every...phrase. Even speeding it up didn’t help.

Inspiring

I really like Trent and his passion for LIFE. I follow him on Facebook and find him (and his story) very inspiring. However...there were times...I found...the audiobook...hard to follow...because...he paused...so often...in a sentence. But overall I enjoyed it and recommend it!

Mind Blown

Might be a good book but holy cow I couldn’t sit through 5 minutes of the audiobook with this authors amazing idea to read one sentence at a time & pause between each sentence as if every single word was the most prolific statement ever. Most obnoxious narration I’ve ever heard in my life.

Disappointing

I really wanted to like this. The delivery is stilted and difficult to follow, and the author seems to be VERY full of his own success.

Might be better than I gave it credit for.

So, I was completely prepared to give this book 1 star... up until I got to the last few chapters.
I had a REAL hard time getting past his vocal speaking patterns... his use of the dramatic pause every 5-6 words drove me nuts.
It apparently took me almost the entire book to get past it and finally hear his message. Once I did I really enjoyed the content... so much so that I might just restart it from the beginning and give it another shot.

Absolutely, 100% amazing read

A BIG Thank you goes out to Trent Shelton. I can relate to your book in so many ways. I'm currently listening to it over again. I will rise above all the obstacles in my life, put myself , my kids, and my happiness first, and come out on top in the end for a new life journey. You are an amazing person and I thank you and the others for sharing their life stories.
