    "Waste of time"

    This was a total waste of time and money. Advice like take cold showers to succeed. I'm glad the cost and time was not much.

    "Daily Self-Disciple"

    I could not finish this book. The content is much to basic (preschool of discipline) and the readers voice was irritating. I want my money back. I give it zero stars.

    "Better Title: "The Catch-22 of Self-Discipline""
    Any additional comments?

    Let me sum up the advice of this book in a single sentence: To develop self-discipline, you should do lots of things every day that require self-discipline. I kid you not. I think for most people, if they had the self-discipline required to do these things each day, they wouldn't be reading a book on how to develop the self-discipline required to do the things every day that doing will lead to stronger self-discipline. There are some good tools in the discussion of how to avoid some common pitfalls, so it's not a total waste, but it could be half as long. As editor, I would lose the long section inviting the reader to do many things that if he/she had the discipline to do in the first place they wouldn't be reading this book. Or, I would at least acknowledge the Catch-22 inherent in that advice, and explain how some of the techniques might work. I'm not convinced that forcing myself to take a cold shower every day is really going to build the sort of self-discipline I'm looking for. What I really think is that maybe Martin has watched one too many Bond or Bourne films, and in the end, I blame the editor more than the author for not trimming some of that self-help fat. But who am I to throw stones? The man's written books. I haven't. But I don't take five-minute cold showers either (unless there's a bet involved, and then Tim Ferris can explain the purpose of that).

    "Young, somewhat bland, unhelpful. "

    Did not like the athoritarian tone wrapped in trite, short-sighted truisms that if true...everybody already knows. I'd you read this book and find yourself likin it then maybe you've never read a well written book. Prose in its finest form it is not! Careful not to go too deeply or you will regret the time stolen by a blowhard know it all who writes about as well as a competent 6th grader. Good day.

    "Common Sense"

    I wished I could have returned this book. Nothing new. The author has no scientific basis to say what he affirms. Mostly, common sense. I feel ripped off.

    "Not self-discipline, but fat shaming"
    What would have made Daily Self-Discipline better?

    If he focused less on weight loss, and more on self-discipline in ALL areas. He returned again and again to the idea that fat people are, by default, undisciplined, and thus they needed more help. I picked up the book because I wanted help with forming good habits and improving my life, not because I need more shame around my weight.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Martin Meadows again?

    I won't be reading any more books by Martin Meadows. I found the language somewhat sexist, which only reinforced the disdain I perceived from him towards women and obese people. He was also very careful to state that he doesn’t have medical or counseling credentials, but then stated things like 99% of people can't use a "medical related [issue as an] excuse [for being obese]".

    In chapter four, he said, and this is an exact quote, "The only reason why people are obese is their lack of self discipline."

    And that is when I stopped listening to this book. He had said earlier that he had been 30 pounds overweight in his twenties, but then he did one diet (Tim Ferris's Slow Carb Diet) and lost the weight and has never been fat again. At that point in the book, I was a little skeptical, as he was a) male and b) in his twenties. But I was willing to keep listening, as I was confident that he would give me some suggestions I could use.

    But when in chapter four he made it clear that he considers being fat to be unforgivable. He also said "At the risk of sounding politically incorrect, you are unlikely to achieve success in other areas of your life if you can't deal with excess pounds."

    Firstly, this is patently untrue. There are many many many successful fat people. In fact the only place I think this might be true is in Hollywood, and even there I wouldn't be surprised to find successful fat directors or producers.

    By continuing to perpetrate the myth that fat people are, by default, lazy and undisciplined, he is doing a disservice to everyone. And I am not interested in reading or listening to his books.

    "Could not get through it. Bored to tears"
    What would have made Daily Self-Discipline better?

    Some actual tips early on might have been helpful. I skipped the first two chapters as I am not overweight......I honestly could not listen to this, horrible.

    Listen to a youtube motivational compilation and you will get more out of it than this book.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment
