Fine if you've never used social media before

OMG - Is this designed for someone who has never used social media ?!

I was expecting tips and advice, instead this went BASIC, and I mean BASIC for each platform.

Youtube ... a place for a collection of videos, where you can look to build comments for popularity - you don't say?!

Painfully slow and basic, unless you've never used social media before, I really wouldn't bother!

So dull

So I've read and appreciated quite a few books on Buddhism.
I run my own business.

That coupled with my continuous aim for improvement of myself and my business. and the past reviews .... this seemed like a great book.

Wrong.

Of course, Vishen is successful and obviously knows his stuff - but man!

I often give books that don't grab me an hour .... I gave this 2 based on past reviews, but no more!

Dull .... nothing to implement (urless you're maybe starting up some monster, many people business!) and so much 'the universe is welcoming' talk .... too much fluff and not enough practical, go away and use info.

The book is being returned.

Hmmm

Been meaning to listen to this for years as so many colleagues recommend it.

Enjoyed the first half but got nothing from the second where it went all religious and spiritual. So many great reviews so I must be missing something but found it a bit uninspiring overall🤷🏻‍♂️

Great insight

Like many I thought Tyson Fury was wasting space a few years back but like anything you only get to see or hear one side of the story - this gives the other.

The story flows perfectly time wise from his upbringing through his fights and battles - new respect now given and a great listen and champ!

Not as gripping

I feel a bit bad writing this with all the other positive reviews, but I'm sure I'll / he'll live with it!

Got to chapter 6 and a bit bored if I'm honest.
Don't find Jason's tone massively listenable - a little 'script' like if I'm honest.

I've recently listened to Billy Billingham and Ollie Ollertons books which were great with background first around their upbringing and the alike before their special services stories, but this goes straight in with the stories so you don't really bond as much?

Like I say, just my opinion but didn't find it as engaging

Good listen

A good mix of stories from Special Forces alongside life lessons, mindset talk and business - definitely worth a listen

Nothing new

Mr Stitch X below summed it up really - I lasted til 2 hours left of this book then had to stop.
Yes what he says Is true, nothing wrong there, it's just a bit dull tbh and could have been a lot shorter and to the point.

It's kind of a mini accumulation of many self help books, but just nothing new .... which is kinda the point to regular success (!!) but not an ideal listen if you've read/listened to quite a few of the top books

Haven't listened/read the full book for years, so thought I'd get this to give me a reminder.

Might go back to the full book!

It's almost robotics with no charisma, which makes it hard to take much away from the concepts!

Wasn’t blown away

Many peers and colleagues had recommended this book and was one I kept thinking I needed to listen to.

Must say I was pretty underwhelmed ... in essence just stray, small things done often builds the compound effect or bigger impact. Took a few notes but pretty underwhelmed IMO

basic

Terrible really?! I was only interested in the Instagram info of which there is 2 chapters .... hashtag and geotag locations is about the info ..... narrated in a mundane way and very little inside info ...
