Critic reviews

"A unique formula for self-motivation, staying passionate, and striking that often elusive balance between paying the bills and enjoying life to the creative max. A gem of a book." ( Inky Goodness)
"A light-hearted and hilarious guide packed full of lessons on how to discover your passion, turn it into something that supports you and dedicate 100% of your time to doing what you love. A frank, hip hop lyric-peppered self help book for people who don't read self help books." ( HUCK Magazine)

Great for Younger Listeners

Great for younger listeners, I feel it wasn't suited to older listeners due to the young references throughout.

Essential to anyone wanting more in life

A perfect length book beautifully read by Gavin himself. Short, but does it need to be any longer? Nope, everything is covered, with great references at the end. Thank you Gavin!

so good! so inspiring!

Gavin Strange has a great voice that compliments his own book with energy, passion and excitement! He originally inspired me to get into the design field and this book just validates how his perseverance and passion have taken him so far in his career! I can only try to walk my own path and be as proud of my accomplishments as Gavin is his! I'm so grateful for this!
