This is basically a reworded version of Alan Carr’s book..

Wow well that was a shame...

I read Allan Carr’s Easy way first and then this, and it’s almost a complete copy, the analogies, metaphors, layout, even the process is exactly the same.

I can’t be the only one that’s noticed this right?

It reinforces what is highlighted in “The Easy Way” so in that respect it wasn’t a complete waste of money, but if I had paid full price I would’ve been particularly annoyed..

I guess as the saying goes, there is nothing new in this world just rehashed versions of old ideas..

Save your money, either buy this or Allen Carr’s, not both.... you choose

Below average, basically a simplistic view on stoicism

Really?? I gave it 2 stars as far play he wrote it, but this isn’t new at all, he’s basically handed in someone else’s homework...

That’s a credit I’ll never get back... the narrator was fine, easy to listen too.

The actually content of the book is average at best, I can’t think for the life of me why it’s received so many 5 stars, it’s not new or revolutionary, it’s basically rehashed stoicism theory with a load of bland personal stories trying to back up the points..

Personally there are better books, I listened it to see what the hype was about, now I wish I’d saved the credit for something more interesting... that’s my personal take on it..
