Publisher's Summary

In addition to presenting Sean Stephenson's unbelievable life story, Get Off Your "But" offers anyone who needs to conquer fears and insecurities a hands-on guide for overcoming the forces of negativity and self-sabotage. Sean - a successful psychotherapist - shows what it takes to overcome the big bumps in the road, eliminate excuses, end insecurities, and ultimately stand up for happiness and success in life.

As Sean explains, anyone can fall victim to the "Buts":

  • "But" Fears (BUT what if I fail...)
  • "But" Insecurities (BUT I'm not good enough...)
  • "But" Excuses (BUT there's no time...)

    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.

      "Thought provoking to say the least..."
      Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

      Definitely. After realising where the "strange" voice came from (sorry Sean) it was absolutely delightful to read this positive take on a barrel full of lemons which turned out to be a very enjoyable, if somewhat tangy, lemonade. The complete absence of self-pity and "preaching holier than thou" in this book was refreshing and inspiring. Many of us believe we have problems but reading this makes you realise you have excuses.


      Who was your favorite character and why?

      Without a doubt the little schoolboy Sean. Refusing to accept that being different makes him special.


      Have you listened to any of Sean Stephenson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

      No, I have not but will soon again.


      What did you learn from Get Off Your 'But' that you would use in your daily life?

      Life is full of lovely sweet berries, use it or lose it! Don't wait for tomorrow, others or a higher power to take charge of your life.


      Any additional comments?

      Beautiful!

      "Just couldn't get through the audiobook"

      I had put this book on a list of books to buy and read because I had listened to the preview. However I was on the go and forgot about this and downloaded it on my blackberry to listen to while travelling. I really wish I had remembered to buy the book as I couldn't even get through half of the audiobook because of the narrators voice was quite unpleasant to listen to for such a long time.

      I completely understand the authors voice is due to his condititon however I feel that perhaps if he had hired a narrator to narrate the book it would be much more enjoyable for his listeners. I would have no problem listening to the author speak in person at a motivational event however I do not feel that by him personally narrating the book it makes it more real.

      "Excellent book!"

      You can only feel sorry for the reviewers, David and Esther...it's painfully obvious that they have completely missed the point, if they cannot see that the narration only adds to the impact of this fine book.

      "Unlistenable"

      Too bad Mr. Stephenson's ego did not permit him to choose somoeone else to narrate his book. Listen to the sample before choosing this selection; had I done the same, I would not have purchased this.

      "A let-down..."

      The voice of the author was an immediate turnoff. The theory that he provides may be interesting, however his voice made me stop listening immediately. The author should have invested in someone who has a stronger voice for narration. It seems somewhat unprofessional. Perhaps I should have listened to the sample first. Well.. lesson learned..
