Since the publication of The Biology of Belief, Dr. Bruce Lipton has received widespread acclaim as one of the most accessible and knowledgeable voices of "new biology". The science is called epigenetics – a revolutionary field that shows us how the energy of consciousness is as important in shaping life on earth as DNA and chemistry.

Lewis Howes grew up as an athlete. He was a two-sport All-American and went on to play football professionally. Howes then transferred his competitive nature from sports to business, building his podcast, The School of Greatness, into a global phenomenon. But his whole identity was built on misguided beliefs about what "masculinity" was: dangerous, false ideas learned from teammates and coaches in locker rooms and stereotypes in the media. Like so many men, Howes grew up to be angry, frustrated, and always chasing something that was never enough.

Don’t get me wrong, the masks are spot on. I think this book has the nuts and bolts to be great. Often I wondered if he was scratching backs of his buds. I love Lewis and what he brings to the table but this was a B average book. Look forward to the next.

It's time to rework work.

Very generalized ideas in book format. Not applicable to every situation, which is a little expected. Contradictory throughout. Not spectacular.
