A simply Brilliant Book

I enjoyed listening to this audiobook. I found it inspiring and mood-enhancing. In my opinion everyone would benefit from listening to this as it really gives excellent insight into how you can make your life better by changing your habits and sticking to the new self. The narrator's voice is very pleasant to one's ear.

Like a summary of the self help genre

If you read a lot of personal development books there is nothing new here. It is a magpie book having borrowed ideas from other well known authors some credited and some not.

this is like clickbait but for audio books

introduction is unbearable, I want to actually learn something, not hear the author brag about how great the book is, for two chapters

Great book, inspired me to change towards better

Great book, make sure to visits Michael's website to check the resources mentioned throughout the book! A lot of concepts are taken from 7 Habits Of Highly Successful People but also includes a lot of great tips and tools to better your life1

BY THE WAY THE LAST WORDS OF EACH CHAPTER ARE NOT CUT BUT THEY TRANSITION IN TO THE TITLE OF THE NEXT CHAPTER!

Brilliant is a new Standard

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Brilliant is a new Standard! a cheerful listening, filled with quite a lot of personal stories, and all explanation about how he learn that lessons, nothing too new if you've heard other self help books, like it's all about action, will of life, be positive, time your goals...but it's somehow good to hear these again and again..help to rethink and keep up.

Which character – as performed by Michael Heppell – was your favourite?

Michael Heppell performed very well, in fact the good thing is that it does not sounds like he's performing, he's just sharing his experience and learning.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

overall, inspiring and cheerful to listen

it's well.... brilliant!

I love Michael Heppell's stuff. Applicable both to life and business, he is the chamois leather that clears your windscreen so you can see exactly where you're going and how to get there. If you think you know all you need to know about what it is you have to do, you probably don't until you've read Michael's book. My vision is so much clearer, my time so much better organised, my priorities make more sense and I'm more productive as a result of techniques I've learned from Michael. Especially great if you feel down, stuck in a rut, feeling certain that there was supposed to be more to life. There is! And "How to be brilliant" guides you down that path in a totally non-patronising way that is real and achievable. Love it.
