Little dissapointing

I’ve been a big fan of Garys books and approach to maximising your life. I’ve listened to and read all his books and I would describe them as tough love help, shake you up so to speak not harsh but brutally honest. Besides you can’t keep living a lie and kidding yourself and blaming other people for your life! But this book feels more of a rant and also more about helping others and the bigger greater picture that involves others, life is bigger than yourself, when in actual fact the reason for buying this book is to help yourself.. I spend some much of my time helping others! I might be missing a point in the book but for me I was not left motivated like his other books have left me. If I was to pick any of his books the first one, it was excellent and the narrator really made it who ever it was, just had great voice which engaged you as a listener. Honesty is the best policy.

Another great book from GJB

Love Gary's style and this is a no-nonsense, cut to the chase, honest guide to life and making the most of it. Worth keeping as a life map to sorting your head out and guide to getting in the right gear and head space. A tonic to the usual American "woo woo" stuff 👍

I loved it :)

Gary has so much good to say. I love his books and I relate to them. Beeing from midt part Norway, his honesty and straight forwardness ( that hurts some..) combined with caring hits well. Sometimes we need to feel hurt or get something in our face to actually get a grip. Not cuddeling our way forward to.. Nothing.. Good thing he also comes with encouragement and tips for the road a head. I think I have to read it again. Reason for nothing full pot is, because I could not grasp it all and gary sound a little far away.. (my earphones?)
