5.0 out of 5 starsThe Method for Gaining a New Perspective Over the Impossible
Reviewed in the United States on June 18, 2019
We have all faced problems that appear impossible. Everyone you know is addressing the problem the same as you. You are told that's the best solution and everyone is racing to find a way to improve it. Then all of a sudden one person or company comes up with a brilliant solution that once you see, you think everyone should have seen it earlier. How could you have overlooked it? Over and over again, no one saw the new solution. Now, what if you could learn a method that helps you see those types of solutions. That is exactly what Andy Andrews is doing in this book. It is a small quick read but very powerful. He has packed it with very interesting stories, (Andy is a master storyteller) that will keep you turning the pages. You'll gain a method that seems really simple. But that is the way it works so many times when someone shows you the solution, it seems really simple. It is simple, but it doesn't come easily. If you own a small business, buy this book and help your team learn to gain a new perspective that will ultimately help you achieve things you previously thought were impossible.
5.0 out of 5 starsBest money you will spend this year!

What if I told you, the answer to all of the hard questions; how to be a better parent, how to be a better spouse, how to be a more valuable employee, how to be an employer people want to work for, a better coach, a better player, or the toughest one; how to earn more money, all existed at “The Bottom of the Pool”? Would you believe me?
What if I told you, to get to the bottom of THIS pool, required no swimming skills, snorkels, goggles, fins, and you don’t even have to have your swim suit body ready to go?
In his newest book, “Bottom of the Pool”, Andy Andrews takes you, hand in hand, where only a few have dared to go. For it seems the surface of the pool is where everyone is hanging out and having a great time. Only when you pierce the surface, and go all the way to the bottom, will you find the answers you seek, and that are essentially invisible to those lounging in so called success at the surface.
If you’ve ever wondered what the secret ingredient is for those people and businesses that are light years more successful than even their closest competitor, Andy reveals all in his latest book. Not only does he reveal it, he walks you through how to put it into practice, so that moving forward, you can make a trip to the bottom of the pool anytime you like without assistance.
“Why on earth, if he gives me the secrets and the answers that exist at the bottom of the pool, would I need to make a return trip?” That question, and many other ones you didn’t even know you had, will be answered in the pages of “The Bottom of the Pool” by Andy Andrews himself. It will be the best $20 you spend this year, and perhaps, ever.
1.0 out of 5 starsI can't make heads or tails of this book
Reviewed in the United States on September 17, 2019
Let me start by saying I ADORE Andy Andrews. I've read many of his other books multiple times, and they have been absolute life-changers. I ordered this book fully expecting a short, pithy volume packed with wisdom, humor, and guidance.
Unfortunately, I'm on Chapter Seven and I have yet to get a handle on what the book is actually ABOUT. I *think* it's about going deeper to get extraordinary results, but I'm really not sure. There is no consistency from chapter to chapter. It is written in a very confusing manner with sentences going off in all directions, and no real structure. Some might call this "conversational" but to me, it's simply confounding.
I know there is good info and wisdom embedded in it, so I will continue to slog through. But each time I sit down to read, I'm completely lost within a few paragraphs.
4.0 out of 5 starsWhen is what is true not really the truth?

As with any Andy Andrews book, "The Bottom of the Pool" helps the listener/reader view things you think you know from a different perspective. Andy has done that once again inside his latest tome here.
He will take you below the surface, where most never endeavor to go, to show you how to play "the game" or perform at a level most don't even know exists. You will learn when what you have come to know as being true is not always the truth and many other insights that will open your eyes to a new perspective.
I plan to listen again and read to consume and digest what I just heard for the first time as I usually do. I am not even a swimmer but am looking forward to going to the bottom of the pool again and again.
5.0 out of 5 starsGreat Book for Business (and Life) by Andy Andrews
Reviewed in the United States on July 13, 2019
Leave it to Andy Andrews to be able to take a made up childhood pool game and turn it into a way to success that has helped companies reach stellar heights, by doing what seems counterintuitive and yet ends up making so much sense. Sometimes the way up is down and the way to outpace your competition is to do what others aren’t doing, competing at a level where no one else is playing. While this is largely a business book, in typical Andy Andrews style, there is a larger principle that works every time it’s tried in every aspect of life. This guy is a walking wisdom generator, and I love all his stuff. Check this one out.
5.0 out of 5 starsInspiration Beyond the Depths of the Pool
Reviewed in the United States on June 27, 2019
Personally, I had become of forever-fan after reading Andy Andrew’s book, “The Traveler’s Gift.” One who discovers an inspired, gifted, talented writer has won the biggest jackpot the world has to offer…knowledge. Andy’s books don’t just entertain, they also inform, teach, and open our hearts to something much greater. His book, “The Bottom of the Pool” falls under the business and professional genre. Through a robust dialogue, it holds deep interesting stories and facts that instruct and inspire the reader to take action. As like the book, “The Little Things” Andy seems to be having a personal conversation with the reader. Furthermore, beneath the pages, the reader can discover a subtle recall of an inspirational thought from a previous book of his. This brings it full circle for both the writer, as well as the reader. As Jones (book character from “The Noticer”) would say, there is gold within those pages and one just needs to catch the reading bug and go after its treasures. –Lisa Wiley-Nickel (Illinois)
