I almost quit listening to this book after the hundredth familiar motivational cliché but the curiosity and stamina of this rhino kept me going. There are some great nuggets in there, worth the read or listen. I paraphrase... Watch out for the disease of being cool - only dead animals are cool. Etc etc
The only reason I didn't give it a five star is that it's chock-full of short phrases and ideas, do this do that rather than using any sort of effective storyline.
Scott did a great job at keeping my attention.
The book is silly but that is what I liked about it. It brought a great message across with a silly delivery. I'll be listening to this one again.
If you like getting fired up about life and love inspiration you will love it. You can and should listen to this frequently no matter what your spiritual belief is.
This book started with the symbolism of rhinos and never ended. Ad nauseam the symbolism kept going and going. The analogies were so elementary. I can't imagine anyone could actually learn anything from this book. Luckily it was short and little time was wasted getting through it.
I myself often speak in hyperbole and metaphors, so I found this book extremely amusing. Not only was it a fun read, but very motivating as well. I am charged up and ready to be a rhino, and you will be too!
Great book. It is on point and is a must read at least 2 to 4 times a year (every quarter) to remind yourself of your rhinoceros capabilities.
what a great tale about how to not let society crush your goals and dreams or your creative things that you wanted to do back when you were a child you find something that you want to be good at this is a great book to remind you to plow through the obstacles and achieve your goals
