    "easy to follow"

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this audiobook. It gave relevant and simple strategies for everyday life. Provided a clear understanding of the "monks' way" and how it can be manifested in the modern day.

    "Absolutely exceeded expectation"

    As someone who spends $1,000's on personal development and self education I was surprised when I randomly stumbled apon this book and was blown away. Starts off a bit slow but the connect is incredible. Many life changing strategies and plenty of explanation on how to use them.

    "Some good ideas but.."

    Some good ideas but.. The vulgar language gets annoying and distracting. A real monk would have been a little more respectful of his audience.

    "Waste of time!! NOT RECOMMENDED"

    Was just very boring, plain, and basic. Everything that was mentioned in here was nothing new. Don't waste your time on this one.

    "This book was really informative and down to earth"

    This book kept me interested could not wait to hear more. He has many easy to do hacks that are practical. It's like he took a easy subject that the world is making really hard and made action steps to address our selfish ways.

    "Extremely superficial"

    I get the feeling listening to this that self-confidence replaces real insight. This is spiritual and lifestyle thinking 101.

    "Wow. Just what I needed in a world like this"

    This book is so full of practical tips and techniques to help round out your life. The author does an amazing job of adapting ancient practices and philosophies to the modern world in which we live. Not only is this motivational and easy to follow, but this has become my life reference guide. I really don't need anything more now that I have this book. On my way to being an Urban Monk. Thanks.

    "Good basics"

    Books talks a lot about what majority already know, however, it uses examples to set us back on track on remind of life essentials. If you are looking to reconnect with yourself and go back to basics generally, this book is the one to help with that.
