The book started out a little slow and I felt like I was required to be a little long suffering with the main character but the resolution was well worth it. I felt like the last twenty minutes of the book made it all worth while.
The plot was clever and the characters were quite interesting. A really great read!
This book was full of anecdotes and hype designed to whip you up into a frenzy but after listening to over half the book, I had no idea how to hack my hormones, do a single better lift or anything useful for that matter.
Apparently a 'real world guide' means a ton of stupid bro talk and allusions to how much sex you should be having. I gave up after half the book and feeling like the big reveal was just around the corner only to be replaced by another useless anecdote.
It should be called Infomarketing: Engineering an Unreal Guide. Next!
I thought this book was quite entertaining. A few observations...
1. The lack of relationships was criticized but in the context of a 'ghost man' I thought this was appropriate. The main character was ruthlessly pragmatic and ultimately unencumbered by emotional attachments.
2. There were similarities between Jack Reacher which was a plus since I am a huge fan of Lee Child. Just more of a good thing.
3. For me, personally, there were plenty of moments in the book where I was pleasantly surprised at the way the way the scenes played out. It was slick and clever.
So all in all, a solid freshman effort that I would recommend to anyone.
