Let me sum up the advice of this book in a single sentence: To develop self-discipline, you should do lots of things every day that require self-discipline. I kid you not. I think for most people, if they had the self-discipline required to do these things each day, they wouldn't be reading a book on how to develop the self-discipline required to do the things every day that doing will lead to stronger self-discipline. There are some good tools in the discussion of how to avoid some common pitfalls, so it's not a total waste, but it could be half as long. As editor, I would lose the long section inviting the reader to do many things that if he/she had the discipline to do in the first place they wouldn't be reading this book. Or, I would at least acknowledge the Catch-22 inherent in that advice, and explain how some of the techniques might work. I'm not convinced that forcing myself to take a cold shower every day is really going to build the sort of self-discipline I'm looking for. What I really think is that maybe Martin has watched one too many Bond or Bourne films, and in the end, I blame the editor more than the author for not trimming some of that self-help fat. But who am I to throw stones? The man's written books. I haven't. But I don't take five-minute cold showers either (unless there's a bet involved, and then Tim Ferris can explain the purpose of that).
Clear. Concise. Effective.
The author. The narrator was also very good for this type of book.
The question is not applicable for this type of book.
Physical excellence is an essential part to building a self-disciplined life.
The ideas are expressed clearly and concisely. There are no wasted words. I also appreciate the references to other helpful research and books. I really enjoy listening to books by this author.
It's mostly him talking about weight loss. The principals do apply universally and some of his advice on discipline is particularly concise. It's worth the listen just don't expect anything groundbreaking.
I love listening & learning, adding value to others. Passionate about problem solving, start-ups, & health of body & mind. isaacring(dot)com
Life comes down to habits and actions we practice. Martin gives us some great reminders, tips and tricks to implement real world strategies for achieving what we set out to accomplish. I highly recommend this audible version. I've got the kindle edition of this book and listening to it after I read it; I caught some great insights for myself again that I needed to hear. Success comes from taking action. Don't just listen and learn, put what's in this book to work in your life. You will have the tools and self-disciple to do so!
Great actionable content and great narration. Author provides great content,examples and exercises to help you create self discipline.
No fluff etc. straight to the goods.
My only complaint is I would have liked a little more expansion in the examples and topics. A little more how to. Not totally necessary but would have been nice. (Having said that I did like the short focused book without all the extra "fluff & filler" people throw in to make a book nowadays). All in all a good listen.
The information in this book is very elementary ... No new info. This the same stuff we've all heard, read and known for more than a decade! Don't waste your time reading it.
For me yes I’m a slow reader but I could see it being helpful to have both the audio to lessen to straight thru and physical book to highlight areas to work on.
Although a lot of different areas for improvement are covered in this book he does make it clear that you should start with one so you don’t burn yourself out
A Better Way to A Better You
If this is the first of Martin Meadows books you might want to get How to Build Self-Discipline before this one.
