This is a good book if your looking for inspiration as a writer. John (addressing him as if I know him even though I certainly don't) does a great job of projecting his personality into this book, and I finished the experience feeling like I just had a long one-sided introspective conversation with him. Many times he is over descriptive, and needs to work on being more purposeful in his writing, but I can't complain because his book is motivating, and that's why I read it. If that was his goal of the book he met it, although he probably could have done it with 25% less words. I liked the book, but am not interested in continuing on with the author's other titles. I was going to rank it 4 stars, because he certainly is a good writer and the book isn't crap, but there are just so many other good books to spend our hard earned money on. A+ performance and effort reading his own book though.
I loved the book.. Jon Acuff is very well spoken with plenty of great ideas to step out of being ordinary and mediocre into becoming great. I would recommend anybody looking to become great to buy this audio book. He breaks down in steps everything you should do in order to succeed.
Jon is hilarious in a dry, sarcastic kind of way. His book is educational, inspiring and entertaining. He also includes attainable and reasonable action steps.
Especially if paired with another speaker Hal Elrod.. I even feel lighter and happier after listening the Start!!!
I am forever grateful and hoping one day to help others as much as John does!
I needed a jolt to help me feel more confident to jump into launching out as a full time business owner. Totally got that and more from this book. Thanks, Jon Acuff for keeping it real and giving us such awesome insight! I'm ready to find my awesome :)
The material in this book so spoke to my condition that I bought the hardback so I can re-read it as a textbook. Tonight I will begin to re-read it and follow the in-text assignments as they are printed. Thank you, Jon, for this in-my-face look at me, and most importantly, what I can do today to change for the better.
Read it. Filled with uncanny insight into your fears and inner thoughts, Jon knows how you feel and think and addresses each objection you may have to becoming awesome.
I enjoyed this audiobook because john sounds enthusiastic and passionate. His context is both relatable and precise as he drives the reader through a series of stories that makes the topics more relatable. I would recommend this audiobook to anyone at any point in their journey to becoming awesome.
