As Sean explains, anyone can fall victim to the "Buts":
Get Off Your "But" offers a practical guide for putting fear behind you and building the inner resources to become self-confident at work and at home. It's time to get off your "but" and start leading the life you dream.

I would listen to this book again just to reabsorb all the meaningful lessons and uplifting stories. There are many bits of great advice one would benefit from hearing again and again.
Performed by the author, he knows how to tell his story best.
I bought this book to listen casually to, as in I didn't seek it out because I felt I NEEDED help. But even for the casual listener, there are many lessons in positive thinking that I've applied most days after I read this. I even spread it to others around me stuck in their own dark thoughts and it's helped them as well. It's made the would around me a little brighter.
Great book, a little cheesy at times, but helpful and positive nonetheless.
People who enjoy stories of personal hardship
The author doesn't quite make up his mind whether he wants to book to be a tear jerker, or a self-help volume. The advice he gives is of the type "I think that's how I did it, so it must help you, too". And sorry, it's naive.
A bit more passion in delivery
I appreciate the tremendous hardships the author has overcome by being saddled with brittle bone disease. But in the end, his whole story and every piece of advice goes back to this one, very personal, aspect of his story which just doesn't apply to me.
I love a book full of heart, psychological wisdom and humor.
This book helped me get out of a minor depression I was experiencing due to a painful medical issue. Some times I find motivational speakers annoying, but, for me, he was very compassionate, realistic, nonjudgmental, and even fun in his point of view and advice. I also really enjoyed his warm, cheerful voice, and I'm glad he didn't hire a different reader as one reviewer suggested. It wouldn't have been as powerful and experience without Sean's actual voice. Thank you Sean, for your honesty, openness and wisdom!
I thoroughly enjoyed Sean's book. He makes the audiobook entertaining while he narrates it. I recommend the audiobook for an overview, motivation and inspiration. I recommend the ebook as well in order to complete some of the exercises that Sean prescribes.
I listen to a lot of everything. I really enjoy fiction, but also business books, self-improvement and lectures.
sean gives you the best practices of successful people and adds what few do, the actual steps needed to "get off your 'but'".
I don't usually like to listen to self help books I would rather read them so I can make notes in the book as I read along but I couldn't stop listening to this one even though the author suggests reading it slowly as you do certain assignments. The book was very engaging,Inspiring, and practical and I wanted to absorb all of it in one sitting. Now I'm going to start over again and listen to it the way that the author suggests. Thank you thank you thank you. I'm going to suggest this book to my Family and friends.
This was a good book. I don't give 5 stars out easily. My opinion is, this was a good "bridge" book with a positive message, to fill my consumption path. It's information you already know...and know you should do...but that being said, we all need to have those continued positive messages flowing through our conscious mind.
Thanks for the positive message Sean...I would love to meet you out and about and hear more of your story.
The narrator was great. The book helped tremendously in helping to get over my insecurities. Recommended this for anyone looking forward to moving forward in life.
