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.
In the New York Times best seller The School of Greatness, Howes shares the essential tips and habits he gathered in interviewing "the greats" on his wildly popular podcast of the same name. In discussion with people like Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson and Pencils of Promise CEO Adam Braun, Howes figured out that greatness is unearthed and cultivated from within. The masters of greatness are not successful because they got lucky or are innately more talented but because they applied specific habits and tools to embrace and overcome adversity in their lives.
A framework for personal development, The School of Greatness gives you the tools, knowledge, and actionable resources you need to reach your potential. Howes anchors each chapter with a specific lesson he culled from his greatness "professors" and his own experiences to teach you how to create a vision, develop hustle, and use dedication, mindfulness, joy, and love to reach goals. His lessons and practical exercises prove that anyone is capable of achieving success and that we can all strive for greatness in our everyday lives.
He is not a narrator. Listening to this was torture. He should have spent some of his money on a good voice actor. This book had some good points, nothing you wont find on others. I started fast forwarding after listening to how great he is for the hundredth time. This was written to gain subscribers for his newsletters. Go get anything by Brian Tracy or Ziglar instead.

But the narration was terrible. I know Lewis gave it his best shot, but he clearly does not have any experience at the difficult task of narrating a book. It really distracted from his message. Overall, there was really nothing new in this book. I enjoyed the stories of people's real life successes.

I love the podcast, and this is a great book. I was really excited when the audiobook came out and exchanged the ebook for it. I'm not sure what happened, but Lewis' narration is bad. Really, really bad. Unless the audiobook is redone, buy the book instead.

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.

This book was one of the most frustrating books, in the personal development category that I've ever read. I was torn between tossing, virtually of course, the book in the trash to hanging on to give the author a chance to change direction. So many things I could mention in this review so I'll just focus on these:
1) Howes never should have narrated this. Worst bit of narration I've come across in awhile here on Audible. It was distracting and took away from my focus on the content. Was he trying to read from cue cards?
2) There truly is nothing new under the sun but after Howes mentioned that he "makes his bed" over 7 different times, the point was lost. I get that he felt this was a true benefit in his life but it felt like he was beating it into the ground. No mom needed here...
3) Howes focused way, way too much on his own perspective. I was looking for that break in his story to truly step out and focus on "how" to apply some of the knowledge he gained from his podcast guests. His attempts to do so left much to be desired. Most of it is just retreads and rehashed "stuff" that's been out there for ages.
Sorry Lewis, this was a very weak piece of work. Nothing personal. This was my first interaction with your work in any form. I'd not listened to your podcasts, or reviewed your "" school of greatness "content. You were mentioned by someone and I thought I'd check out your work. Just my opinion...

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?
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.

Lewis was a bit stiff. I wish he have been more himself like he is on his videos. Book had good content and I like the story but he needs more practice has a storyteller.

I liked the message. Reading it would have better but I lack the time so I like to listen on my way to work. Listening was tough. Find a good narrator. Too choppy

There is no new content hear. I was disappointed in almost every chapter except for his vision chapter. I got sick of hearing about the same few people and all his sports stories. Waste of time!

You shouldn't necessarily read it!
Love Lewes and his podcast, but the man can NOT read a manuscript.
Listened to a painful hour then gave up.
Sentences split in half, he doesn't realise when he's doing "voices" and emphasis in the wrong places.
I'd like to know if the content is great, what I struggled through seemed good, but my anger at such poor reading nearly made me crash the car.
Please, record this with a professional artist, you just do the foreword and stick to the podcast.

Lewis Howes is incredibly inspiring. You feel you are not happy with your current life and you need to make a change, then this book is perfect for you. Truly 5 Stars.
This is an excellent book by Lewis Howes.
I won't lie: there were times when I was tired of some of the underdog stories, but a couple of chapters hit me personally between the eyes. On top of that, he mentions some of the mentors he's had and people who have helped and influenced him who I have googled and found to also be of great help to me.
This book is the reason why I bought 2 other books that I can't wait to listen to.
loved it. Lewis speaks from the heart, he is real and humble. he has connected with me in a way no other personal development author has.... I think this is the book that will finally help me break free!
I enjoyed this very much, decided to join audible solely to try this out after listening to the podcast, fantastic things that I will apply to improve further, ideas that definitely work, as I have used some of them in the last few years. Narrated fantastically by the great Lewis himself, would read again many times!!
I have listened to this book 5 times in a row in the past 12 days. I wanted to capture all the greatness in it and own it. Tine to inject grearness in my life and thise around me. Thank you Lewis <3
I've been listening to Lewis for many years on his podcast and finally there is a book ... Must admit there was a bit of background at the beginning which is familiar to podcast listeners. Personally I found a little slow but I think that was just me ... This is more than made up for as the story continues ... Simply amazing ... Can't wait for the second volume ...
Loved this audio book and great that it is read by Lewis Howes himself. A few places to book mark and go over!
Already suggested this book to several people. Not just a positive thinking book that has no relevance.
Where does The School of Greatness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
One of the Best Books. It feels like Lewis is mentoring you at every corner and holding you accountable to step up and act.
What did you like best about this story?
Unlike many other sports star's , athletes, celebrities who go through a downward spiral in their life when faced with adversity in their profession. Lewis managed his state and bounced forward. He took charge of his life and proved that its not about skills, talents and circumstances; rather its about vision, handwork and determination that brings you success in life.
What does Lewis Howes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Listening to the book, you experience the stories, events, so vividly ,that the lessons stick with you forever.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Any additional comments?
Thank You Lewis for All your contribution, inspiration and impacting countless lives around the Globe.<br/><br/>Keep Rocking!!
thank you Lewis Howes for writing such a beautiful and inspirational book. It doesn't surprise me by how well it has been written as you nail it in the way that you connect with the people you interview.
Loved every second, great insight to some other great minds and it's awesome to know Lewis's back ground! Awesome steps to follow, hooked the whole time.
Loved Lewis's down to earth style, advice and vulnerability in sharing his story. ❤ ❤
Ten out of ten on all Counts!! Thank you, keep up the greatness and passion.
Lewis does a great job of summarising all the best parts of his school of greatness podcast
Loved every second of this book!
I can't think of a book I've enjoyed more in the past 5 years.
Lewis goes into great lengths on how to become great.. With anecdotes and stories of others who have conquered and achieved great things.
If you want to make changes and achieve the most from life, then this book is a fantastic start.
