I was blown away by the degree to which Chris Friesen helps the reader dissect his/her personality tendencies. By scoring yourself (my wife and I helped score each other) in regards to five distinct tendencies you not only end up with a new perspective on yourself, but you are also able to immediately use that newfound knowledge to start modifying behaviour. It all made so much sense! This is a self help book that you can actually use to help yourself! This is NOT another bland rehash of opinion and conjecture. This is an impressive book produced by a results-oriented author. Chris Abell delivers the material crisply and clearly. He sounds enthusiastic about the subject matter. Once I got into the personality tendencies section of the book I realized I was listening pretty enthusiastically! I can't wait to listen to the next book in this series.
A good listen makes for an amazing day!
It was really well written and the narration was excellent. I loved how the techniques were so relevant to my well being and life. It provided real, guided information on how to achieve goals.
It was strong, and persuasive. I loved it.
Motivating and Easy to read.

I like a wide range of genres. Favorites include Horror, SciFi, Fantasy, Thriller, LGBT, classics and history.
This was very interesting and it had some really good information. Pretty much the first half of the book is talking about personality types and how to score yourself into what category. It would've been really nice if he had explained why this was important BEFORE launching in depth into the personality types. Even though it was relatively interesting I got bogged down and kept wandering off. Once he explained why the personality types we're so important and I understood why, it was much more interesting. And I'm going to have to go back and listen again now. I'll probably follow up with the next books. Definitely worth the read.
The narrator was very good and pleasant to listen to.

Tell us about yourself!
The author gives some new ideas and perspectives. There are several personality factors that really determine how you should attack certain situations. Chris does a good job of making sure you are lined up to think about a situation correctly.
By far the section on Goals. The author does and excellent job of walking you through how to set AND achieve your goals.
The section about figuring out what you really want was impactful.
This book really made me re-evaluate how I approach my goals.
I went our and bought a paper copy so I could take some notes. I liked listening to this on audio, because the narrator does a really good job.
The only problem is there are several points when I wanted a paper copy to highlight and go back to. Overall this is a great book and I highly recommend it.

TARGET AUDIENCE: Self-improvement book based upon sound clinical research, combined with real world experience. This is not a “motivational” book by a someone who has made it big and is just cheering you on, but based on proven techniques. If you like Steven Covey, Dave Ramsey, or Viktor Frankl you will love this book.
CONTENT: Contains excellent information about how to achieve your goals, including personality inventories, links to self-assessments, and worksheets. The only drawback is the author’s frequent reminder that he will further address items in “upcoming books in the series.”
NARRATOR: Excellent. The book was well read, and added to the book.
OVERALL: Absolutely recommend this book.
“This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.”
This audiobook is more relevant and applied than most of the other self improvement audiobooks I've listened to. The integration of personality traits with self-help strategies is excellent and leads to better and most lasting outcomes.
Loved the narrator and the personal touches and humour.
It isn't helpful at all; Nice title, but, its all about 'finding passion and working hard'. Wish it covered how to get there first..The style is not engaging, reads almost like a manual.
Make it reader friendly. Include more real stories and not only about athletes.
Reading is too fast and monotonous.
It is informative
It is a delight to listen to the process. I can be running and listen to it. I would advice you to get your copy.
No procratsination possible in this Audible version. Just get your copy and start...
Chris Abell add the hypnotizing voice that keep your attention all along the book.
It touched my emotion and make me realized that I have to do more physical activities and in a proper way.

The latter half of this book contains useful, actionable, and science back information. You'll surely feel motivated to take the next steps towards fulfillment after listening.
Unfortunately, the first half of the book will put a bad taste in your mouth as the author constantly refers to "find out more in the other books in this series". This wouldn't be the worst thing ever if it wasn't done to the point of leaving out large swaths of information and supporting evidence for the authors claims. A cheap marketing trick that could have easily been avoided be adding another few chapters to this book.
Please write more books, you're a knowledgable author, but don't ask the reader to buy your work at the end of every single subsection in the entire first half of your book.
Maybe wait for this one to be on sale.
