Publisher's Summary

The number one New York Times best-selling author of Bare Bones, host of the marquee morning program The Bobby Bones Show, comedian, and dedicated philanthropist delivers an inspirational and humorous collection of stories about his biggest misses in life and how he turned them into lessons and wins.  

Bobby Bones is the youngest inductee ever into the National Radio Hall of Fame, alongside legends Dick Clark, Larry King, and Howard Stern. As "the most powerful man in country music" (Forbes), he has reached the peak of his profession and achieved his childhood dreams. Each weekday morning, more than five million fans tune in to his radio show. 

But as Bobby reveals, a lot of what made him able to achieve his goals were mistakes, awkward moments, and embarrassing situations - lemons that he turned into lemonade through hard work and humility. In this eye-opening audiobook, he’ll include ideas and motivations for finding success even when seemingly surrounded by impossible odds or tough failures. He also includes anecdotes from some of his famous friends who open up about their own missteps. 

Bobby’s mantra is: Fight. Grind. Repeat. A man who refuses to give up, he sees failure as something to learn from - and the recollections in this funny, smart audiobook, full of Bobby’s brand of self-effacing humor, show how he’s become such a beloved goofball.

Short, rushed, repetitive

I think that after the success of the first book Bobby Bonnes was pressured to write a new book.

I want to ADOPT Bobby Bones!

While it might sound trite to say that a book changed your life, I wholeheartedly can say that 'Fail until you don't' DID change MY life.

I am a person who is interested in SO many different creative ventures. BUT I often lack focus and follow-through to stay motivated.

PLUS a sense of overwhelming SELF DOUBT often rears its ugly head asking me, "Do you really think that you can do that? No way!"

Bobby Bones' title grabbed my attention because he says it's okay to fail- just keep fighting, be willing to put in the effort and 'grind' and then take on the next task.

Bobby shares many personal stories that make this text very real. And hearing him read the text-- well it's almost as good as hiring a personal coach.

He referred to an app- "Streaks" that I immediately downloaded and now use on a daily basis. Because of that app, I have now lost five pounds, I'm doing weight training on a regular basis, I'm keeping up with household chores AND I'm finishing up the final draft of my YA novel.

If you need inspiration to do ANYTHING, then buy this audio book.

ENJOY!

p.s. Bobby, next you should write a cookbook! I made roasted cauliflower this morning. Can't wait to dig in!

Not Horrible

Good stories, lacks true insight. Much like how Bobby described only having 20 minutes of solid comedy but pushing it to an hour; this 5+ audiobook could be shorted to 1 hour without losing much.

relatable

Bobby Bones bares his most relatable and embarassing moments to share a fresh perspective on them. From croaking on live stage to committing hot yoga faux pas, he presents his stories with some self-deprecating humor and a large side of self-reflection. The stories pump you up to take on the world, to fail again and again under the guise of "grinding" on towards your goals, and the sense of serenity found only when you realize that everyone else struggles too. Plus, unlike some utterly unbearable audiobooks, this one is narrated by Bones himself - a radio personality.
