Publisher's Summary

"What does Doing the Impossible really mean? This book is for those who have a desire to achieve greatness and are ready to take the steps to turn that desire into a reality. At one point or another in this book, you will experience several different reactions - excitement, curiosity, joy, laughter, or even tears - but the ultimate goal is to encourage and challenge you to make a decision to do the impossible. That may have a totally different meaning to you than it did to Steve Jobs, Thomas Edison, or any of the other role models we will look at; but whatever Doing the Impossible means to you, the goal of this book is to help you realize that you have the capacity to do what the critics think is impossible." (Patrick Bet-David, Introduction to Doing the Impossible)

Doing the Impossible is a roadmap for those who want to do something big with their lives. The book goes over 25 steps that the listener should take to re-create themselves, identify their cause, and make history. Patrick Bet-David shares his own impossible crusade and gives key principles for anyone looking to do the same.

Author/Reader Needs to slow down

I love listening to Bet-David talk, he's extremely enthusiastic and motivating. I was hoping he would be the one reading the book, then I realized why there are readers/speakers who specialize in audible books. Not trying to hate on the man, but he needs to know when to pause, slow down, and take a breath to allow the listener to comprehend and follow him. Especially on the action points. Great advice, extremely motivating and talented man, didn't do the book justice by burning through it like that. Then again, I guess I could not be lazy and read it myself! Thanks for helping us grow!

Practical Action easy to read or listen to.

This book os a summary of practical actions. A set of attainable goals to practice personal development. Packed with real knowledge and applicable tools in a simple format to follow. A teacher who can simplify the most difficult ideas to comprehend is a master in his craft. Easy read. Thank you Patrick.

Short but PACKED WITH VALUE.

It’s read by the author who is an incredible teacher and entrepreneur. The book is so packed with knowledge and inspiration that I think I will not only re-listen to this, I’ll also go and buy the physical copy as well. Well worth it and would recommend to a friend.

Nice and short

This book is good friends just starting out on their path to success. It would definitely need to be consumed along with several other books.

I would suggest, the secret, 10x rules, Rich dad poor dad, and then books about office politics, how to start rental properties or a small business. Also don’t quit your day job till you’re ready.

Inspired to do the Impossible

PBD wrote a very good book that inspires listeners/readers to step out of their comfort zone, have faith and take worthwhile risks in life. I liked the book because it was real life by a real person with real examples.

I was going to listen to it a 2nd time but decided to implement and apply what Patrick said - then go back and review the book again for ongoing encouragement.

Thanks, Patrick, for sharing your life to inspire ours.

A great Timely book

Doing The Impossible is a very informative and educational book. The stories were great and at this stage of my life, working on reinventing myself it is timely for me.

Do the necessary work to change the outcome

PBD never fails to guide you and give you a blueprint on the how too. The Why is your part to go with-in and do the work. But overall great book on identity and the process of making a real change.
