When a career-ending injury left elite athlete and professional football player Lewis Howes out of work and living on his sister's couch, he decided he needed to make a change for the better. He started by reaching out to people he admired, searching for mentors, and applying his past coaches' advice from sports to life off the field. Lewis did more than bounce back: He built a multimillion-dollar online business and is now a sought-after business coach, speaker, and podcast host.

What did you like best about The School of Greatness? What did you like least?

I haven't listened to the podcast, but I appreciated the content of the book a lot. The reflection and actionable items in each chapter were super helpful. I had trouble though with the cadence of the author's reading. It drove me crazy, actually. It's a great resource, just read it, don't listen.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

His. cadence is all. over. the place. I loved the content, almost couldn't get past the narration.
