While I like the topic and did enjoy the book, I do wish there was a bit more of concrete examples. This may be my personal preference for the way examples are presented.The author does give numerous examples couched within his stories. Considering how the book began: describing in detail the self-help, motivational industry he is tearing apart a bit, I was hoping for a few more direct examples of Stoics, and even, perhaps some references to additional info.As an example, currently another best seller is the Power of Habit. While a good book in describing stuff that has happened, I was hoping for some direct examples of how to address the power of habit process they describe in the book. Maybe I am old school but I think if I hear a bunch of stories saying, "Look what we're telling you and isn't this great".....Then I believe, that means, the author may have insights into what they have found, works for habits.With The Antidote, the author described a great number of people, situations, etc, that, in my opinion, say, "Look what I discovered and am sharing with you here".....While many of these stories were good, I was looking for some other conclusions and perhaps event eh authors opinion for what I can do to learn more about the topic.I will keep this book and will look for others. Considering I have not found many on this topic I think it is a good read/listen
Yes, unless I found a better title on the topic
not sure, he is ok. The audio is comfortable to listen to, but the subject may have benefited from another reader, just a bit
There's better out there
Anyone who likes the 1st half of a book to be worthless.
Anyone who likes listening to an ego-maniac who appears to be laughing at the reader for buying it and giving him a profit
There are about 4 good ideas in this book. I would take the advice the author seems to promote. Don't pay for something if you don't have to. Don't get me wrong, I agree with this to a point. Go to a local book store, buy a cup of coffee, read the last few chapters, they can't be long, then go buy another authors book where you can really learn
Cut it down to it's core. About 4 pages worth of text
The 'feel' of the book comes across as talking down to you. I always worry when books try to bring slick initials in to make it seem you're part of the club of having bought the book.
Frustration - I listen to an entire title to give it a fair shake, and see if it is worth it. This is not. I would say go check out Brian Tracy on time management. Check out Warren Bennis on Leadership. Check out any other titles suggested when you click on this one. Then buy one of the other ones.
