As a former Royal Marine, I loved this book. It gives a gritty insight into the illustrious club we Commando’s belong to but makes it relevant to a wider audience also. Thoroughly enjoyable book and highly recommended.

Good book and worth the read

I enjoyed this book, the narrator is engaging and paints the picture of Arnold's life story well. I thought it might be a bit heavy in places but the context and tempo changes often enough throughout the book to keep it interesting. Insightful and comical in places it's a great pen portrait of a very unique public figure. Definitely recommended.

Excellent Book!

Having heard Dan Harris on the Rich Roll podcast (recommended listening) I downloaded this audio book but it took me a long time to get round to listening to it. What a mistake! this is one of the best books I've listened to in a long time. Well written and enjoyable throughout. Dan Harris gives a comprehensive insight into his journey from an air panic attack in front of millions to a place of near enlightenment despite numerous pitfalls along the way. A great stepping stone into mindfulness and will definitely read again.

Thoroughly recommended

I Loved this book, not usually a fan of autobiographic audio books but this one was well written and well read. Lots of humour and an insight into a very successful yet humble man. Would recommend.

I bought this book as I was considering joining the Amazon team as an operations manager. In the course of researching the role, many current Amazon employees talked about this book. Having listened to it a number of times it does give a great insight into the all important company values and most importantly gives a good explanation of both the reasoning and historical relevance of each one. The narrator delivers the content very well and his enthusiasm for the values shines through. If he doesn't work for Amazon, he probably should. I would recommend this book if you are in online business, if you are looking to develop a company culture or if considering a career with Amazon.

Loved this book, thought it was going to be quite corporate heavy, which it is but is told in an inspiring and motivational way. The narrator captures Jack's passion for the GE and the successes he experienced as Chairman.

Great book with great life lessons!

Really enjoyed this book, having read Chris Froome's biography it's good to hear the 2012 Tour told form Bradley's perspective. A definite read for any cycle fan.
