This is an absolutely fascinating book. The author did a huge amount of research and I'd guess many will be amazed at how many things are connected to the way we breathe, such as blood pressure, bone density, our facial structure, snoring, allergies, hypertension, psoriasis, asthma, crooked teeth...
The explanations of some those things made so much sense and I liked the suggestions provided on how to go about remedying some of those issues in a way that costs nothing but time and effort.
Am about to start reading for a second time to truly take it all in.

The title of the book lives up to its name and is packed with great ideas for how to improve many different aspects of your business. The only possible problem with this book is that there are so many great ideas you could be overwhelmed and left wondering which one to start with, but even that dilemma is addressed in the book.
The vast majority of the strategies discussed are transferrable to many other industries too.

Great advice distilled into an easy listen

The author has taken a lot of the excellent advice on how to take action on living life in a more Stoic fashion and condensed it into a short easy read/listen. There were also some really good summing up of concepts that other books take far too long to explain, especially the way that logic, physics and ethics were described and how they feed into each other. I'd never seen these concepts explained in such a concise way before.
If you want to apply more Stoicism into your life I'd recommend listening to this book.

This book contains so much gold and wisdom that it's truly a must buy for anyone in sales, but especially if you're in the wedding industry. Some of the suggestions may differ from what you currently do but Alan provides sound rationale for why you should give these suggestions a try.

A slow start and was very preachy and shouty at times, especially on, but once it gets going there is some superb content

Good content spoiled by boring delivery

The content is very good but I found this difficult to listen to as the delivery was very sterile with little vocal variety.
For the past 4 years I've listened to at least an audiobook every month, many of which have been enthralling whereas this one has been a case of having to force myself to listen to it, because I want to hear the content, but because of the way it is delivered I have found it extremely hard to concentrate on it, which is a huge shame as the content is very good.

Only the closed minded/intolerant wouldn't laugh!

Absolutely loved it.
extremely funny and he's equally fair in picking apart the fairytales from many belief systems, plus detailing even more absurdities from many of them I was completely unaware of. Has some unexpected poignant and touching moments too, and an ending many wouldn't predict.

Amazing and scary at the same time!

I downloaded this book yesterday and haven't finished it yet! I've been an Audible member for a few years and downloaded countless books, but never before has a book hit me so powerfully that I felt compelled to give a semi review before even finishing it!
There is some fantastic information in this book and would surely make anybody that really listens and takes in everything that is being said, change their eating habits; how could you not!? well, maybe if you weren't REALLY listening to what is being said, or couldn't possibly imagine having to do without meat at every meal (and consequently not bothered about the impact on your own health!).
Enjoying the content enormously -although it is a little scary at the same time in some ways, and by that I mean the power wielded by the huge food and pharma companies can stifle information that would be harmful to their profits and they are abided in this by governments with utter disregard to their own citizens! That is what is scary.
I have replayed certain chapters a few times already, to just let the mountain of information, really sink in.
Will be back to leave a fuller review when I've finished listening to it all a few times!
