    There are only two paths in life: average and awesome. The average path is easy because all you have to do is nothing. The awesome path is more challenging, because things like fear only bother you when you do work that matters. The good news is Start gives listeners practical, actionable insights to be more awesome, more often.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Start to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read Start but the audio version was amazing. I think John Acuff delivers an amazing read. I don't think anyone else could have done the material justice--he brought it to life and made the "book" impossible to put down. Because of him narrating this book, I will buy anything he creates. If you haven't listened to this book, and you want to understand why you are where you are--buy this right now. Love, love, love it!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The book flows! It has so many absolutely hysterical quips and examples that I found myself laughing often. That's a great thing to do while you are "learning"!


    What about Jon Acuff’s performance did you like?

    The tempo of his narration was incredible. I think that his voice (just sounds like he is a funny guy) made all the difference. Because he wrote the book, he knew exactly when to change the pace of the read as well as use voice inflections to drive his points home! Can't say enough about his style of narration!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When he was speaking about his anger over the "hyphen" in the title of his previous book. He shared that he was actually only self-sabotaging. We all do it--it made me realize that even confident, successful people like John have moments of insecurity. Love the credit he pays to Mr. Ramsey. His gratitude is evident towards all his associates and his amazingly patient wife.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are looking for the reasons why you haven't changed your life or if you wonder what it is you are passionate about as you trudge through life, but this book! You will know your path soon into it. I will listen to this multiple times and gift this to many of my friends in the future! Get this book! You won't be disappointed.
