    Story

    Some minutes within the story I thought I was reading a Robert Greene's book, because there were many great characters from the past, with the same paced rhythm. In the end Ryan Holiday explains that Robert Greene is his mentor and it all made sense.
    Overall, it is a good book. I don't think it is practical one, but the author says it is.
    I didn't give it a five star because the last hour and a half it is a podcast between the author and Tim Ferris, the author of 4 hour workweek.
    I am eager to listen to Ryan Holiday next book.

    We are stuck, stymied, frustrated. But it needn't be this way. There is a formula for success that's been followed by the icons of history - from John D. Rockefeller to Amelia Earhart to Ulysses S. Grant to Steve Jobs - a formula that let them turn obstacles into opportunities. Faced with impossible situations, they found the astounding triumphs we all seek.

    Story

    I learned about Ben Carson by watching the great movie "Gifted Hands". His mother was married when she was 13 to a pastor, was a semi-illiterate woman, who discovered that her husband had another wife, ran away with her 2 small children and worked as a maid, many times in 2-3 jobs, and barely made it. When Ben, the younger kid, was in 5th grade, he was semi-illiterate himself, his best grade was a "D", couldn't do math and everyone made fun of him. Suddenly, his mother cut the TV time and made them read 2 books a week. This was the turning point to Ben and his brother. Ben Carson became the best in his class, graduated in Medicine from Yale University and went to the field of Neurosurgery in Johns Hopkins where he became the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery when he was only 33....
    An excellent man, a superachiever. Read/ listen to the book and feel inspired.

  • No Excuses!: The Power of Self-Discipline for Success in Your Life

    "Nothing new. Poor audio quality"

    Overall

    If you have not read or listened to Brian Tracy before this book will have value. But, as a long time fan/reader/listener I am disappointed. First, there is nothing really new here. Tracy makes many of the same points in several programs his has authored. He even tells one story that I first heard from him on a cassette (yes, cassette) series I purchased in 1997. Second, the book is not really about personal disciple. That is just a lead to connect topics he covers better in other programs – goal setting, time management, sales. Third, the audio quality is sub standard. Not to the point of distraction. But, for a person of his stature you would expect better. I am still a fan. But, would suggest you skip this offering.

  • Think and Grow Rich

    "The Original is Always the Best"

    Overall

    If you have read or listened to other versions of Think and Grow Rich you need to listen to this one too. It is the original 1938 text. It is longer than most other editions but, it’s worth it. There are whole sections of this book that are left out of other versions. And I found those sections to be quite valuable. As for the narrator – I thought he was fine. His delivery allowed me to add whatever color I needed to as I digested the information

Has that happened in your career, with your finances or your relationships? If you said yes, The Big Leap is for you. It is about how to recognize your upper limit behavior and break through you self imposed glass ceiling.

    Story

    This is just a 20 minute speech Dr. Kembro gave at a conference. The speech is pretty good. But, giving this the same title as the book is false advertising.

  • "Great book I wish I had 25 years ago"

    15 of 16 helpful votes

    This is an amazing book that sums up a lot of Stoicism with relatable stories and useful information. It's very akin to Robert Greene's books which makes sense since Ryan interned for him for a time. All of the stories are fantastic and the tips are all actionable and usable in everyday life while being entertaining to boot.

    I generally hate author reads and this is not great but also not too bad. I listened at 1.25x which tightens up the performance without losing too much in the way of inflections.

    A very annoying part of this audiobook though is that an hour and a half is an episode of the Tim Ferriss podcast that you can get on iTunes. That makes the book come in at roughly 4.5 hours if you don't want to listen to or have already heard that interview. I just wish that was in the description of the book.

Talk One: "Jesus: Forgiving Victim, Transforming Savior". If we imitate the way Jesus lived the role of victim, we will be able to live the Christian mystery. Jesus suffers freely but does not pass on the pain. He forgives, which destroys the death that confronts us. He says, “No one else is your problem. You are the locus of conversion and transformation.”

    One afternoon - after another failed attempt to get motivated to exercise - I (accidentally) started my first mini habit. I initially committed to do one push-up, and it turned into a full workout. I was shocked. This "stupid idea" wasn't supposed to work. I was shocked again when my success with this strategy continued for months (and to this day). I had to consider that maybe I wasn't the problem in those 10 years of mediocre results. Maybe it was my prior strategies that were ineffective, despite being oft-repeated as "the way to change" in countless books.

    Yes, you can! Hands up who feels like a completely inadequate underachiever whenever you hear about someone’s great achievement? When someone in the office is off cycling around the world, or someone on TV has just launched a great new business which will save the planet? Most of us envy the drive and determination of these people. They’ve actually made this stuff happen rather than just day-dreamed about it.

    Good conversation is at the heart of networking, meetings, interviews, negotiations and raising your profile. It can ease your way in work, enabling you to build alliances, create strong relationships with staff, bosses and clients, succeed at interviews, motivate and inspire. But conversation is something most of us were never taught! We learn to speak as babies, but how conversation actually works is something most of us pick up only haphazardly, and many have yet to learn.

    Ever noticed that trying to calm down often produces more agitation? Or that real fulfillment can be elusive, despite living a successful life? Often, such difficulties stem from the human brain's hardwired tendency to seek pleasure and avoid pain. Modern science demonstrates that this survival mechanism served the needs of our earliest ancestors, but is at the root of many problems that we face today, such as depression, compulsive and addictive behaviors, chronic pain, and stress and anxiety.

    What makes one novel a bestseller, while a similar work languishes unnoticed? Why are the same few baby names suddenly everywhere? Why is everyone talking about that viral video? Welcome to the science of social epidemics: the cutting-edge study of why some ideas, products, and concepts spread wildly, while others quickly flame out. Anyone who has something to sell, a cause to promote, or a message to spread knows that there are obstacles in creating a message that resonates, spreads, and sticks to make their product or idea the word on the street. Enormous sums of time and money have been spent trying to answer the question of why some ideas catch on. And not only is it an ever-present challenge for businesses, governments, and organizations, but it has long been a source of inquiry for psychologists, economists, and sociologists as well.
