Wonderful in most times, but gets carried away...

I find most of it a fascinating story of an insecure and fragile human being behind the most iconic symbol of the last century. Very well researched and nicely told. Gets carried away at the end with the cause of death, in few details even contradicts itself...

Brilliant

There's so much wisdom in it that I hardly can put anything into place yet, I will need to hear it again and again... It's the endless source of inspiration!

If you're not an office worker overwhelmed by emails and meetings, well this book is not for you. Hoped for something deeper...

Brilliant classic, the MUST

In my humble opinion everyone had to read or to listen to it... I had finished the book yesterday evening and this morning I still feel haunted by it. It's a fairy tale of being different, of not belonging, of being excluded... The thing we humans fear the most.

Simply brilliant!!!

I can't recommend it highly enough! Makes total sense, I'm very happy and pleased to have listened to this book, I'm quite sure I will come back to it time and time again... I simply wish there would be more real stuff like this in the world instead of all the brainless obsession to be constantly and exhaustingly happy...

Not really...

Me, myself and I! Just one more celebrity dragging about they extraordinary, brilliant friends, luxury life, incredible experiences and on and on it goes... There's nothing really personal here... Empty...

My advice: avoid it!

What a mess, I just couldn't continue and I'm a rather persistent person. It didn't make much of a sense, it was inconsistent and the reading wasn't good at all, very often I wasn't sure where the one sentence ended and the other began. A very big no, I love solitude so I hoped for something decent but this was far far below any expectations.

It's not that bad but it made me feel worse...

I'm a happy introvert and I expect an easy and funny story of venturing out to the wild world. I didn't get it, instead I started questioning myself again, I just couldn't help myself but feel that extraverted life was superior to the one I'm happily living. So sorry but no, I could not finish it... The author sounds very very American and full of extraverted ideal. Didn't find much of originality in this work.

It's nothing new actually, it's a combination, a salad of few schools and philosophies. From Viktor Frankl's logotherapy to stoicism and beyond. I'm not convinced that Ikigai exist, sounds like a made up thing...
