    "a braggart tone"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This was a great story. I can't imagine what the author went through to develop the life skills he teaches about. But over and over, I felt like the author was more interested in telling of the amazing things he's done than teaching a lasting lesson. The narrator sounds like he's narrating a car commercial the entire time as well. I really want to like this book, but the braggart tone is a contradiction to the reasons for authenticity that the author is trying to convey.


    How could the performance have been better?

    different narrator


    Any additional comments?

    I got a lot out of the book, but the words didn't hold value because I didn't feel like he was interested in teaching anything. He was interested in speaking on his greatness. This book doesn't know whether or not it wants to be an autobiography.
