I read a book per week or more on average (thanks Audible!) and most of them are self help kinda books.
This might be the best one I've read yet, because I struggle with motivation some times. Short and sweet, you won't regret it.
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.
The basic point of the book are great. It gives me a different perspective on how my attitude and behavior shapes my day and the results it brings. With how short the book is, it can be a go to read for quick motivation throughout the year.
