"Learn how to embrace the b.s. of everyday life, keep your cool, and build the habit of happiness."
We all have our fair share of problems, anxieties, and insecurities. This is inevitable.
How we deal with these things directly dictates how happy, productive, and confident we are. Far too many of us remain victims of the ups and downs of everyday life.... But YOU don't have to.
Inside this book you'll learn:
This is the second piece I've read by the author. It seems to me Morenas is a part of an ever growing group of young guys like Patrick King, Greg Greenway, and others who have spun off the pick up movement. They've adopted the business/lifestyle model and elevated it to help take men (and a hand full of keen women) to the next phase of social evolution.
In this book Morenas is on a path of self discovery and improvement. I imagine the content and writing will continue to improve as he continues to grow as a leader. The interjection of unnecessary swear words to relate to his audience and his strength on certain opinions was a bit dissuasive at times. I appreciate his analogies even if occasionally long winded. The meat of his book is quite good and, perhaps for some, a bit thought provoking as well.
While I don't agree with all the thoughts and beliefs the author puts forward I didn't need to. He kept his personal politics at bay for the most part, which some authors severely struggle with, and there were a number of great take aways I can incorporate into my life. Some of the material acted as good reminders of many things I've let slip away and some was new and fresh. The advice being put forward is, in my opinion, solid. There are a handful of people I would love to hand this book to right now if I thought they would listen. As a young author and leader Morenas shows great potential.

Would you try another book from David De Las Morenas and/or David De Las Morenas?
Not after suffering through this one.
What could David De Las Morenas have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
TELL the story instead of READING the story that is supposedly your own words.
What didn’t you like about David De Las Morenas’s performance?
Quick monotone delivery. He comes across as a young, know-it-all braggart instead of someone who his trying to share lessons with his listeners.

I felt his book approached life from a, "get them before they get you" approach. We've seen enough bad mannered people in life hiding behind a false facade.

Good job! I am a voracious reader and audible book listener. Few suggestions: #1 Drop the profanity, it diminishes your talent and good suggestions. You obviously want to bring humanity up and help us improve so present your material in this fashion. #2 Hire a professional to read, it will make a world of difference. #3 Decide what kind of book you are doing and who your potential audience will be because you have really good points between the awkward mentioning of your girlfriends, sex etc. You have what it takes - I can see it! I appreciated that you mentioned other sources that have benefited you such as the philosophy of Marcus Aurelius and the like. I have read them too and agree wholeheartedly and it gave your work more credibility because you are obviously passionate and seeking wisdom and wish to lead others to a better life. I truly admire your courage and hard work and look forward to buying more of your books! You have what it takes!
one hour of none sense and absolute wate money. The only thing I learnt not to buy without reading the reviews.
I very much enjoyed listening to this book and would recommend to everyone. The morning ritual is amazing. I normally meditate and read on my commute but have added the writing part. You should too.
Great Inspirational listen I got a lot out of this book. Like the calm collective way the book was read by the author. Thank you
This is a quick listen. i enjoyed the techniques discussed to help a person to become stress and anxiety free.
If I could give it zero stars I would have. A lazy, badly written ebook - plus this kid is annoying. He sounds like a philosophy and business student who decided to cash in on the self help movement. Totally full of himself - I couldn't get through the intro without skipping ahead to the book. Ugh.
The book gives clear disclaimers in the opening to not use this book to diagnose yourself and the publisher doesn't want to be affiliated with its content. Other than cussing and vulgar references, this is definitely a 'dude' book. Not really worth the $14.95 I pay a month, but if you want to pay the $4.95 that may be a better deal.
excellent book with great Insights I have listened to it several times the fact that it is David himself narrating the book gives it a more intimate authentic feel. the examples given in the book have helped me to put the strategies into practice in my own life and start to conquer everyday stresses and worries which has been invaluable in living a more relaxed stress free life. many thanks to the author I look forward to his future work.

can you please try and slow down h with your reading. some of the points you make are very good but become lost due to your pressure of speech at some points
Real, down to Earth and by far so far the best book I have read. Action must be taken for it work. I have no negatives to give David other then to keep up the great work.
A key thing I liked about the way this audible is written is that it gets straight to the point and covers all the required points and is really inspirational for those who are ready to take action and want straight advice on what action to take to be happy in life and successful and even take action throughout life with confidence.
If you could sum up Calm, Cool, Collected: How to Demolish Stress, Master Anxiety, and Live Your Life in three words, what would they be?
Makes you take a step back and get some perspective, helped me calm down from a stressful situation.
