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 disappointed you about The School of Greatness?

The reading of it was totally amateurish and unrefined. Author admitted that the only reason he chose to read it was to appease his friends and family members.

Has The School of Greatness turned you off from other books in this genre?

Mostly likely yes.

Would you be willing to try another one of Lewis Howes’s performances?

No.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The School of Greatness?

Almost the entire book was from material that can gained taken from old Wayne Dyer lectures or Deepak Chopra. There is almost no original thought or material.

Any additional comments?

Very disappointing book, and the reviews are very misleading. It's unfortunate that Audible seems to edit out bad reviews. It would have saved me a lot of time and money to read diverse reviews of this book, instead of cultivated ones in order to sell more books.
