This Book, Quite Literally, "Changed My Life"

Yes, I know it's a huge cliche, but let me tell you that from my point of view it's completely true. I have read a number of books about self confidence, how to talk to and communicate with people effectively as well as how to cultivate a cast iron "can do" attitude to love and life, and whilst they all shared fundamental truths and values, this book probably had the biggest impact on my outlook and ultimately where I am today.

I have had a two year transformation from an overweight, internet obsessed, video game nerd, lonely, hugely introverted, massively unhappy and generally negative to someone who leads and inspires groups of people from all walks of life. When someone comes up to me and tells me how much I have inspired them by my positivity, confidence and personal warmth, it still blows me away. This book and especially Dr Aziz have my complete respect and thanks for showing me how to make this possible.

Good

It was nice to listen to this book
The performance is brilliant
There is some good ideas and stories
But it doesn’t give you the feeling of satisfaction at the end
As if you are spent a great time enjoying the introduction and the small talks and the preparation after asking a big question and the conversation ended up with you still waiting for the real answer

Messed up

Disappointing. As important as confidence is, it shouldn't the be all and end all. It should not outweigh morality.

Mind blowing.

I wish i had read this book when i was younger. Dr Aziz debunks some of the most toxic and common misconception we hold about social behaviours and communication. The book is simple to understand full of examples and comparisons. The narration is enjoyably smooth and the tone is relaxed and empathetic as you feel in a real conversation with a friend. The best self help book i ever listened.

The art of.......

Dr Aziz, I wished I come across you years ago, I'd struggled with allowing myself to become myself again due to having toxic people around me including toxic relationships, I've let many years go by doubting myself and being scared to become the person I should be.
Your books have woke me up , I repeat listening to them and now I've started to put it into practice.
still have the fear feelings but now I let myself feel it, instead of pushing it deep down . Thank you
I recommend this book.

Overconfidence

I personally don’t find overconfidence likeable. I don’t want to be that person. Maybe it’s good for others.

I loved this audiobook!! so inspiring. Also, it's read by the author, great performance. It's the kind of book that one feels sad when it's finished.

Boring, but it might help beginners.

As a disclaimer, I need to say that I'm not particularly lacking in confidence - I got this book because a couple of areas of my life needed attention, and as such I believed this book would help me. I was wrong but it may benefit someone else more.

I'm currently halfway through, and all I've gleaned thus far is that I need to take risks -- well No Shit Sherlock.

Do I waste any more time on this? I don't think so - I need to be stimulated, not sent to sleep with stuff you can pick up for free on Youtube.

THE. BEST. BOOK. ON. SELF. CONFIDENCE. EVER.

I am about 3/4 through this book and I am completely and utterly blown away by how insightful this author is. I have read many books books on this topic, but they were either horribly written, boring, lacked action steps, irrelevant to me, or were filled with filler. In contrast, this book is a big, thick, lean, juicy rib roast of amazing, extremely actionable content. Most importantly, the author gets it because he once suffered from very low self confidence and has since slain the Dragon. Okay. there is one thing I don't like... I feel an urge stop the audio every 5 minutes to not down notes. Therefore, I bought the paperback so I can write it. Do yourself a huge favor and buy this book for yourself or for someone who you feel suffers from low confidence or low self-esteem.

Mostly regurgitation

Not bad, but mostly just the same generic info as a lot of other “coaches”. The main advice given throughout is “You fear X? Then you just need to do X.” Not overwhelmingly bright. It claimed to give specific strategies/tactics, but he keeps repeating the same advice, just in a different context.

Ehh.. not for me

So far this book has been written for people who are passive not assertive or perhaps in my case sometimes aggressive. Every chapter falls back on you being awesome and that you should have the courage and self esteem to have confidence. To me that is not confidence. I wanted a book on standing tall, wait to speak last, don’t apologize etc. to help improve my anxiety I feel after decision making and skills in sales and customer service. Not for me, if you have very low self esteem, maybe but so far I don’t know anyone this will be useful for personally.

Full of realistic and effective advice.

This book exceeded my expectations, Dr. Aziz explains things in a clear and simple way that is easy to understand and makes sense. In the end your actions are what will lead to change, but with his advice and encouragement you can find the strength to do it. I highly recommend!

Too vulgar for my taste

He warns readers about his use of profanity, but I did not expect that it would increase after each page. It was not funny, unnecessary and distracting. I did not finish listening to it.

Finally! This book really is life changing!

I've read a lot of books about motivation, self development and trying to 'fix' whatever isn't working in your life. Most of them spend 90% trying to help you figure out why you might have whatever issues you have, and 10% giving any actionable solution. This book is 100% about giving you real, usable tools to make the changes in your life. This book actually got me off my @$$ and into real action. I feel better than I have in years and am so thankful to Dr. Aziz. This isn't a quick fix that will fizzle out once the novelty wears off either......it creates real, lasting change. I hope that anyone struggling with anything in their life will read/listen to this book. It's my new 'users manual' for my life!

And on a side note, Dr. Aziz is very pleasant to listen to....he reads this book like a friend just having a conversation with you.

Okay book except for the foul language.

This book provides some good information but the use of foul language is completely unnecessary. You would think the author could have made a better use of the English language as his choice of words shows complete ignorance. I would not recommend this book to anyone.
