Very American. Not sure I buy all of it

Some good parts, but there's a few big statements in there that raised my eyebrows, and a few corny sayings that are a bit cringy. But I think I get the valuable parts and will take those away.

Thoroughly enjoyable and educational

I purchased this book as I was interested from a business perspective.
Although this book does tend to be more about sport there is an amazing crossover and no matter what you are trying to achieve the focus, positive thinking amongst the other examples given they were really food for thought.

Excellent Insights

What did you love best about Elite Minds?

I like the honesty of the author. If you aren't willing to put in the hard work, don't bother reading the book. That was part of his message - and I agree 100%.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

Perfect read for those trying to understand how to gain a competitive edge in life. Not just in sports, but in the world, as well.
