Hard is good, harder is better: for your health, your libido, your life. Such is the provocative premise behind Dr. Steven Lamm's The Hardness Factor, a groundbreaking book that will change the way men live and love. The Hardness Factor asks, Can men be hard and in shape for sex their entire lives? The answer is, absolutely.

Monotonous message with common sense conclusion

The message within this book is clear: If you are not healthy then you will not get a proper erection. A book purely with a message for males it does provide a reason to keep fit and look after your body. However that is it unfortunately, no deeper than that. Not a listen that I will be returning to again, unlike other motivational and self-improvement books.

Most personal and organizational problems are the result of a little-known problem called "self-deception". We deceive ourselves into thinking we're doing the right thing for the right reason, but people won't follow a leader whose motives are selfish. The tricky thing is, we don't know that our motivation is flawed.

After getting used to and accepting the way in which it is presented I found the message in this book life-changing. I like the idea of backing up the audio version with the written one because you do need to revise and revisit particular areas. This book makes you look at your life and take personal responsibility for all of your actions. Not an easy lesson but one that will make you a better person individually and socially if you absorb its contents. Enjoyable and enlightening, it is definitely worth a listen!
