Patronising

I found the author very patronising, his tone and manner of speaking. I never leave a book half finished, this is the first ever one I am doing so as it’s been 4 months and can not get myself to finish.

Needs a bit of editing

It’s a bit long and verbose, there are quicker ways to get the point. It felt a bit like being back at university!

Bit of a waste as it’s only half the book! I am a big fan of the Hicks but truly disappointed.

The book is good, discussing future of work and ideas for branching out. Sometimes the author comes across as whining and repetitive. I wouldn’t say it is one of the most memorable self help books I’ve read but I did thoroughly enjoy it and found what she had to say interesting - hence 5 stars!

Life changing book, I am in love with Jen Sincero! What an incredible person and what a brilliant book - much better than the secret or any of the famous self help book.

The author's voice is a bit annoying so I found myself quite skeptic all for the beginning part of the book. Also, it's a very simple tool she is giving for the length of the book. However, I have rated it highly because I found myself telling people about the book, actually finding the content very interesting and using the rule in the mornings. I do recommend, though I think paper version may be better as could be concise and you can skim.

Good book, in that it commutes quite a lot of useful and interesting info. However, it can be a drag/disengaging at times. I think the author has written as if this is an academic paper rather than a book to general public. So at times I found it quite disengaging. It does pick up at the end when she gives anecdotes of people that used her techniques. I rated it highly because I do appreciate the research Cuddy has done and she present some interesting facts.

Totally Entertaining and Learn a lot!

This book came recommended to me on audible and I thought why not! I was surprised at how entertaining I found it and the masses of amounts of things I learnt. Very interesting. Also the way it is set up makes this long audio book actually feel very short! She breaks up the book in a good way! I'm a big fan !

When you hear the sample, it seems this is an audiobook about coping with the workplace when in real life it is a 1hr meditation tape sold as an audiobook - definitely not worth the money! Also I had to put it on 1.5x speed, so slow and to be honest I didn't gain anything at all from this book. It is no different to free/cheaper meditation
/hypnosis you find online

Such a great learning book, the idea of finding one thought of relief and focusing on that has helped me navigate through some really uncertain times. Highly recommend.
