a lot of nuggets

ok so I'll start with saying I am a huge kevin hart fan and there are moments in this book that really stand out, for many different reasons for me:
1. kids doing drugs in their butts for some reason nowadays
2. watch out for never or always in your thoughts
3. the force field trick
4. how pac man sounds
5. the phone call at the very end
6. all the new words.

I would give this 5 stars but it felt slightly repetitive towards the last chapter before the questions.

And I may never eat chicken nuggets again.

There are genuinely some brilliant tips to improve yourself here and Kevin Hart is always inspiring so if your here for self help reasons you will probably get more out of this than for someone hoping to get even more insight to Kevin beyond I can't make this up.

Ultimately yes I would recommend this, for an improvement book its definitely much easier to digest than the usual dry reading/listening.

Absolutely incredible listen.

What a book.. well an audible one!

I wish everyone took time to listen to this one because it has completely changed my mindset already and It’s so relatable.

The natural comedy throughout makes it such a easy listen, I have laughed out loud on my daily walks on my own (with some funny looks!)

Fully recommend this purchase!!

Gems & nuggets!

You can’t put something this good into a paper book. You can only listen to it. Powerful, authentic truth, and I laughed out loud at Kevin’s delivery. A great role model.

The Decision made easy!

I can't begin to tell you how valuable this book is and how much I have embraced what Kevin is saying in it. Certain chapters I have had to relisten to because it sat with me that much. I wish more people knew this isn't a stand up/comedy book but a self help/motivational tool.

Kevin Hart has a unique insight and when you start to make the changes to the way you think the world just seems a little less heavy. Positivity is freedom, it opens doors, it's inspiring, it's contagious!

A Hart buy, is the best buy

Kevin has one of those voices that is easy to listen to and follow

I enjoy his stand up and his audiobooks do not disappoint while giving advice and perspective!

thank you!

Hard to recommend unfortunately

This probably has 20% content and the rest is just filler! sounds like he just freestyled it with a few notes, which might be fine for a stand-up routine but not a book like this.

I find him to be very inspirational and positive as a person but the book doesn't really give the 'golden nuggets', or even humour, you would hope for.

Really wanted this to be good, maybe it's just not for me!?

Nuggets of gold indeed.

Packaged in funny, energetic, inspiring wrapping. Will return to this book often in the future.

Wow! You gonna learn today!

Kevin has been one of my favorite comedians since I can remember. You can always tell when there is more to a person than their main act. That’s definitely true for Kevin. This man knows his sh!t.

I never thought I’d look at Kevin as a motivational mentor but he definitely is now. If you could see my Audible library, you’d see I have hundreds of audiobooks and it’s filled with about 95% leadership and motivational self-help books. I’d rank this in my tops 3 books on Audible. . And definitely top 1 book for being the realist. Thank you Kevin for putting this “audio” together.

The shift I needed! Thanks Kevin

I’m Cara the one and only @TheCareerCheerleader, however recently living through this quarantine life hasn’t exactly been ideal, or cheerful. I’m usually the one with the inspiring words for others, and in the last few weeks I’ve struggled to find the words to inspire myself, let alone others, literally leaving speechless. As I worked to observe, adjust, and evolve through this, I saw Kevin’s book coming and instantly knew I’d have something to keep me mentally entertained, BUT who knew I’d receive the shift I needed to get up off my hindparts (as my dad would say) and quit pussyfooting’ around with my life (something else my dad would also say)!
Thank you Kevin for your consistently candid nature and OVERALL transparency!
This was needed! This book is ESSENTIAL for anyone on the life long path of leveling up!
I appreciate your insightful narration as well, I could listen all day, and I did! This was the best 5+ hours of my day today #Priceless

You. Are. An. Inspiration.

Your hardcore “real ness” is so fu$&ing motivating! I can’t believe how fast the time flew by listening to you. I’m listening again tomorrow. Thank you for this. Really needed it at this time in my life, as well as this time in our world.

Thank you Kevin Hart.

I really wanted to like this

I really wanted to like this audiobook but it is HARD to listen to. I wish Kev would have just read it instead of being so quirky and trying to force the laughs. It was distracting and got annoying to the point where I stopped multiple times to take a break from listening. I know he is knowledgeable and may have some motivating lessons in here but I just cannot listen anymore

Very inspirational

I loved this book. It was delivered well. It put you in the mind of Napoleons Hills work.

After reading such a positive motivating book everything I’ve heard from this book is of some use and I love the levity that Kevin uses to keep the listener captivated.

AMAZING!

Not really a surprise from someone who strives to do, and be great, but this book is AMAZING! Of course, it’s laugh out loud funny but at the same time he’s dropping GEMS! Definitely going to listen again and again!
