    "Excellent Content"

    This book is full of great tips and insights. I didn't give the book a 5 star rating because I felt the reading could have been a little more animated. However, I have to stress that this is just a minor quibble. Once I got into it, I forgot about that and focused on the excellent and insightful content. I have already recommended this book to a few of my friends. This is definitely one that should not be passed by.

    "Unvarnished, honest, serious but humorous."

    Chandler says that human beings delude themselves in many ways. (He especially mentions the standard kind of self-help without sacrifice books; the "Get Rich While You Sleep" books.) Becoming better than you currently are requires hard work and hard decisions, and he doesn't pretend it doesn't. This book is never boring, never indecisive. It's also not a copycat of every other self-help speaker out there. (For one thing, his voice, although clear, is not that of a great orator. He speaks like an average human being, which is very comforting.)

    "Self Help Book Junkie"

    Take it from a self help book junkie. This book is a cut above the rest. Exposing the lies is the path to the truth.

    "Not Earth-shattering, but effective"

    In a world where it is very easy to get down on yourself, and then excuse yourself from action with little lies, this book exposes some of the more common lies and debunks them.

    "Only 17?"

    Had some good thoughts - many that have been around for a while and appeared in other self help books.

    But with these types of books it can be just the way that its explained or justified that can make all the difference to your understanding of it.

    Some aspects were well described or explained that made me think "I hadn't thought of it like that" which is all you can hope for.

    "Buy, Listen, Take Action"

    Of all the books I've read, tapes I've listened to, and workshops I've attended, this audiobook is probably the most amazing thing I've ever heard... and I thought I had heard everything. The collection of lies, while both powerful and revealing, are delivered in such as way that you likely will be smiling at some of the lies we tell ourselves, and nodding your head in agreement with others. This audiobook alone was worth my one year membership at audible.com.

    "Not insightful, good reminder not to make excuses"

    There isn't anything insightful about the 17 lies we tell ourselves, like "that isn't me" or "I'm too old." There were a few "lies" that I had not considered as being negative statements; they seemed more like facts. But after listening the author's reasoning, I began to wonder if they're really true obstacles or excuses that I tell myself. It would be useful to listen to this audio book whenever we feel we've hit some roadblocks.

    "Convinced"
    What did you love best about 17 Lies that Are Holding You Back and the Truth that Will Set You Free?

    It teaches me how to notice limiting beliefs and behaviours and how to propel myself forward in life.


    What other book might you compare 17 Lies that Are Holding You Back and the Truth that Will Set You Free to and why?

    The War of Art. Both of these titles are incredible to get me proactive in life.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Chapter 7 Steve teaches about worrying and how to cure yourself of that disgusting habit.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Stop thinking like you're dying dipshit.


    Any additional comments?

    When I got this I thought there would be a 50% chance of returning it because I wouldn't like it.

    But, I love it, once you get used to Steve's deep voice the content is very motivational.

    If you're interested it's definitely worth giving a shot.

    I listen to it in the morning during my coffee ritual and it goes well with the caffeine.

    "Amazing truth"

    I listened to this audiobook three times in a row the first week after I purchased it. I was amazed at how many of the lies are part of our everyday life and we just don't realize it. I had to laugh when I saw myself and others I know in the examples he uses. This book makes you WANT to take responsibility for every aspect of your life and to stop relying on excuses. BE PREPARED TO SEE YOUR LIFE CHANGE BEFORE YOUR EYES!
