I really did enjoy the book. Author has an easy to understand way of putting things which I will definitely implement into my life. my only problem with the book was the narrative. I wish they would've spent the $$ on a professional reader. I'm not sure why they didn't, everyone has their reasons for things, but it was definitely "Read". But the information in it is very eye opening & I will be listening again soon with a pad & pen, taking notes. Worth the $$, just go into hearing the reading of it with an open mind.
Just love books.
Insightful, practical, obtainable
His narration was excellent. He just exuded patience and calmness.
No, but i listened to it 3 times already.
Just buy it!
Author identifies and helps you understand how some ways of thinking are prejudicial to bringing discipline and focus to life, thereby changing your perception towards the way we are normally inclined to do things and, in doing so, effecting change in a more efficient and meaningful way.
Book is short, easy to read and filled with interesting anecdotes that will help you better grasp what is being discussed. I have noticed significant improvements in my abilities to concentrate and focus since applying what was taught in the book and highly recommend it to anyone interested in improving their abilities.
I also got the audio version. You can listen to a chapter every night and finish in a week. Different methods work best for different people, this one worked best for me. I find that the information sinks in best this way.
I also highly recommend that you take some notes of the main points whilst listening/reading. Writing things down also helps you learn them, add to that the fact that you have a concise and neat summary by the time you finish.
Apply what you have learned! Buying and reading the book count for, at best, good intentions. You have to fully integrate the concepts into your life if you want to reap their true benefits.
The author read the book with all the meaning he meant and feelings he had when he wrote it. If someone else would have read the book it may not have had such a strong impact. The authors has rich life insights.
I heard this book on my way to and from work. Immediately I was able to use the insights Mr. Sterner gave. As a Merchandise manager, I get calls,emails and other things which push the limit of what I can concentrate on. Mr. Sterner's message of slow down and focus was needed.
I highly recommend this book and heard it twice. This is a real jem.
I've listened to many books on the subject of mindfulness, and this one is the best. Clear and perfectly to the point. Author is fascinating.
The ideas, while not revolutionary were a valuable perspective and one not always applied to the ideas of practice. In being of a growth mindset an essential methodology for thinking for success. Although the delivery was less than exciting the practices ring true for all aspects of life in business, personal skill and relationships. A unique perspective on how you can incorporate a practicing mind(set) into all you do for improved outcomes and enjoyment.

I would listen again. This is because I just could not listen to the book continually during one sitting. I actually listened to two other books while trying to complete this book. Perhaps if I could read in sequence the information would make more sense and be a greater value.
Perhaps, if the narrator adjust reading style based on the material.
This felt like a lunch conversation with a friend telling me about their personal experiences. Enlightening, thought provoking, but nothing mind-bending. I will probably read it again.
