I'm not sure I could pinpoint one memorable moment. This book was excellent, especially when you know who the author is. I had never heard of this author, but after about the first chapter I Googled him to find out more which then made this book even more powerful. There were several stories, events, and conditions the cause me to think this is one of the best books I've listened to.
Something I knew, but put a powerful kick behind. The only thing that holds us back is our excuses!
I highly recommend this book.
I loved listening to this self-help book read by the author. I was able to capture much more emotion and insight into the concepts he sets forward by listening to him read it the book in his own words.
The author's drive to see the good in his own life and not compare it to others.
Amazing and deeply inspiring auto-biographical account by a three foot tall, wheelchair-ridden dude who is prepared to take on the world with full gusto. Listen to this guy's story, and you will no longer have any excuses for not achieving whatever it is that to want. This guy is a champion motivator.
Inspiring story to not let percieved limitations hold you back from your goals and desires. Lots of practical advice and application.
Sean; because of his story on dealing with pain.
Ending needs more of a summary.
The elevator story made me laugh out loud.
The beginning is a little slow but picks up so keep listening.
"All things TOEFL"
Memorable stories and good advice. A living example of courage.
You will be impressed with Stephenson's determination to solve problems.
I almost made the error of switching off this audiobook before really giving it a chance, because the author, who is also the audio performer, has a high and weak voice. I'm glad I kept listening long enough to find out why, On my next listen, I'll be hearing the whole thing.
I really enjoyed the stories that highlighted the message he was trying to get across
At first in was somewhat offputting as to the sound of his voice but after a very short time I really enjoyed him and felt he would be a great person to know.
How your mind plays such an important part in overcoming real and perceived obstacles and how you need to treat yourself with more respect.
it was refreshing to hear about someone making things happen to improve his life, rather than hiding behind excuses for not trying.

It feels like it was an excellent 1-2 hour motivational seminar expanded into a boring 6 hour book - there is just not enough material here. Far too much time spent in an autobiography of the author and the issues he faced (at least 1/2 the book). You can pretty much sum up the book by its title - get off you "but" (i.e. stop making exsues and take action). The rest feels like drawn out examples, though I know more was there - it is just lost in the endless stories or the author and his friends/patients. The author speaks of friends who are "emotional drainers" and that is what this book felt like - a drain rather than a motivator. I honestly wanted it to get better, however it only has occasional glimmering moments.
