Publisher's Summary

What stops you from winning and performing at your best? Your ego. Your ego ensures you get in the way of yourself when you're doing something important: whether you're preparing for school exams, taking your driving test, playing a sport, speaking in public or making a business presentation. Whatever you do, your ego is sure to interfere with your performance. We all have egos: it's our natural defence system which is triggered when we experience strong emotions, such as anxiety and fear.

Steven Sylvester's inspiring and groundbreaking approach focuses on a brand new approach to winning. He believes the pursuit of winning, like smoking, should come with a government health warning - it can seriously damage your health.

This is a journey of self-discovery, a process that enables you to build self-esteem and have a higher degree of freedom when performing. In Detox Your Ego, Sylvester shares for the very first time the seven easy steps to be freer, happier and more successful in your life.

Repetitive

Good advise however could be said in a shorter matter. Narrator is monotone during the hole book.

Has given me a real sense of power in my life

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

I found this to be so interesting and unlike any other self-help book. It was soothing to listen to and the stories were varied with great examples

What other book might you compare Detox Your Ego to, and why?

Chimp Paradox to a certain extent although at the same time totally different. This was way easier to follow and deeper emotionally

What does Des Yankson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I agree I would like the Author to narrate the book too as I have heard him on tv and he's great. Please can you narrate it next time?

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Achieving your selfless dream

Any additional comments?

Great book that I will continue to listen to as a reminder to myself to take time.

Worth a listen

While there were many good messages in this book, it was a difficult one for me to finish. My first Audio book purchase, but one of the last to finish. I didn't really zone in to the Cricket references and found the delivery to be somewhat lacking. However, that aside the significance of the 7 steps were important and therefore, in my opinion, is worth the read.

Smug kindergarten psychobabble

Narrate your own book! The guy reading this makes it sound even more smug! Not being egotistical? Helping others? This is the biggest ego trip of all. Having just read The Antidote in contrast this book is utter rubbish - so bad I don't think I will ever reach the end of it and will almost certainly be asking for a refund. Why would the story flow better if you read it yourself? Because the narrator simply doesn't understand the book. Oh and STOP LOOK LISTEN is just twee and condescending. ABC and a woman called Jane? Did Ladybird publish this? Is the whole thing just a joke? Sorry but you should really rewrite it. The underlying concept is on the right track but the context missed the most important point!

Repetitive

Same mantra over and over. Self obsessed and seems to believe sport is a metaphor for life. Unimpressed. I was glad to see the end.

boring

10% was of great value, if I can find it. The test talk about cricket and snooker was deadly boring
