Publisher's Summary

Gorilla Mindset is an entire system that, when coupled with specific mindset shifts and habits, will change the way you think, feel and live your life.

Applying Gorilla Mindset to your life (make no mistake, this is an audiobook you must apply) will improve your health and fitness, lead to more money and career advancement, and help you have deeper, more meaningful relationships (or more casual ones; it's your choice).

Your thinking will become clear. You will have more focus. You will know exactly what steps to take to change your life.

More importantly, you will be able to troubleshoot your own life - what psychologists call auto-regulate - when something goes wrong.

For the first time ever, there is a complete system for you to live by, and more importantly, to improve and adapt to your needs. Some chapters will revolutionize how you live your life where as others might not apply to you at all.

Gorilla Mindset is not an audiobook of theory. These are all practical steps - mindset shifts you take or habits you form.

There are chapters on routine, self-talk, frame, focus, state/mood, mindfulness, and body language. Each chapter contains techniques, mindset shifts, and habits that can be applied to your life.

Yet each chapter forms part of an entire system to apply to your life. The chapters all feed off of and add to one another.

For example, improving your self-talk will improve your state or mood. How you frame challenges in your life is also a matter of the language - or self-talk - you use.

Getting in the moment improves your self-talk just as your self-talk helps you get into the moment.

At the end of Gorilla Mindset you'll tie every concept together to live the life others don't even dare dream of.

Basically 4 hours of motivational posters

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Listeners who enjoy rah-rah-go-me! type motivational books might enjoy this IF they aren't really looking for anything new. Information isn't really presented in the typical "let me help you be the best you," but more like "do this stuff like I did, and maybe you can be as awesome as me."

Has Gorilla Mindset turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, I'll always be interested in books about being your best self.

What didn’t you like about Mike Cernovich’s performance?

Sounds like a podcast. There seemed to be a lot of adlibs, asides, and he corrected himself multiple times. If I pay for an audiobook, I'm doing it on the assumption that it will sound professionally produced, not like the narrator hit record and read the book start to finish and hit stop and done.

What character would you cut from Gorilla Mindset?

There aren't really characters, but I would cut a lot of the redundant text. The author rewords and repackages the same info over and over and over. And all the "you're gonna wanna," "most people,"a lotta people," drove me crazy. It's like "most people do this, but I do this. You're gonna wanna be like me, not those people."

Any additional comments?

If you've read the cheesy motivational posters hanging in offices and classrooms, you've heard the advice in this book. Nothing new here. If you are interested having that advice poorly read to you by an author who is clearly his own biggest fan, get at this book immediately.

Great message, delivery needs work

The overall message of the book was great - however, the presentation was more like a podcast and less an audio book. The author/narrator seemed to deviate a lot from the text and the narration seemed to have been done in only one take. Professional narration would have been better for the audio book.

Some good tips but a bit of a ego

Author wanted everyone to know how great he was. Some decent tips but not anything other than repurpose of others ideas.

Meh...

Cons: I feel like maybe it's wrong to down-talk a self help motivational book for some reason, Idky but I do. However, I wish someone had written a review that told me this book I just a very typical motivational self help book, in that it basically just tells you stuff that's common sense in my opinion. "If you want to live good, make more money." "Visualize your goals." I mean c'mon Mike. Also, maybe have someone else read it, someone who doesn't have a lisp and can a low down enough to pronounce complete words.
On the pro side: I like the idea of certain brain exercises immediately upon waking up, hadn't heard those before.

For those who are serious about getting more out of life

Gorilla Mindset is a series of mindset and lifestyle shifts that you can adopt in your life to get more of what you want.

The audiobook helps you take your Gorilla Mindset training to the next level if you are working the paperback/kindle as well.

Mike's narration is powerful and brings the energy of the Gorilla Mindset techniques that you can learn easily while driving or walking or working out in gym.

I have improved my physique, women life and money making skills considerably since last 10 months of listening to Mike's podcast regularly.
This audiobook is a treasure to me since I can understand the concepts at a deeper level while I am out driving, walking or at gym.

If you want more from life, willing to do the work, and want the steps that has proven results to thousands of men like me, get this audiobook.

Essentials of mindset & lifestyle in one book

Any additional comments?

I first found Mike through his flagship blog, Danger and Play, around a year ago. I got some great information from the blog (and his podcast) on TRT, lifting and general lifestyle advice. I've used many books and courses over the years for mindset & self-improvement, so I was eager to see Mike's approach to packaging all of this stuff into his own program.

Much of the information in Gorilla Mindset was familiar to me; the power of focus & state control, affirmations, the mental-physical connection, importance of morning routines, etc. This stuff is tried and true, the foundations of any good self-improvement program. As a lawyer working in financial services, I can also personally attest to the quality of his recommendations on savings and investment.

Mike's value-added here is that he's distilled massive volumes of information into his own concise program that gives you the best information and the essentials needed to master your mindset and take control of your life. He gives credit to others where it is due, but he's also provided top-notch info that was totally new to me. In particular, his recommendations on supplements and the interview with the anti-aging doctor, Dr. Brett Osborn, were totally new to me. I've already begun implementing some of those recommendations.

Mike delivers all of this great information in his own voice, which is one of my top criteria for an audiobook. There's no substitute for hearing the words straight from the author's mouth. He gives it to you straight, no BS, but he doesn't try to puff himself up as a superhuman badass that you'll never be able to match. He's relatable and based, which helps convey the message that anyone can succeed by putting this stuff into practice.

My one critique is mainly stylistic. I like the whole 'Gorilla' branding thing, but I feel like that could've been integrated more into the substance of the book. I want to be a freakin' Gorilla, Mike.

All in all, great purchase that I would recommend to any man. Especially if this is your first foray into taking control of your mindset and lifestyle.

Not so great advice with poor reading...

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Many topics but poor depth, not so engaging tone...

How could the performance have been better?

Mike's voice gets hard to understand from the beginning and his pace (or lack of) makes even more difficult to enjoy the book.

Any additional comments?

Go read his blog (I found it really good actually) and save your time on money on this book.

Valuable Life Changing Information

This book provides the high points of $10,000+ I have spent on information and seminars and 100s of hours in time learning this info along with podcasts from health gurus. You are doing yourself a massive disservice if you let Cernovich’s political positions sway your decision not to purchase this book. This book should be mandatory reading for any male just out of college.

Covering too much without depth

I expected more depth on the subject of mind shift. What I got instead was a book touching on a lot of different subjects without much depth.

There were some good points in the book on health and fitness, supplements (a bit random), posture among others but I think the book tried to cover too much.

The author's delivery was clear but he made several mistakes and it seemed as if he did not take the time to re-record these parts and did it all in one go. A little more effort could have been into recording.

No Nonsense work book for the mind

What made the experience of listening to Gorilla Mindset the most enjoyable?

this was read by mike in his own words and has a raw quality that fits with the whole ethos of gorilla mindset

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

sort of, as there are tasks to do at the end of each chapter it is worth taking the time to digest the information and work on it before moving on. it would be possible to listen in one go but i wouldn't recommend it

Any additional comments?

as opposed to many self-help/mindset books this one actually explains in greater detail the concepts and with sections to work through help to clarify ideas so that you can actually do something to begin to change your thinking rather than just listen and nod your head and then wander off

Stop selling other products

The 1st 30 minutes had me referring this book to others.

Buy the end of the book on the 2nd listen, I concluded that he's main focus was selling other products to which he would repeatedly do!

Are there two versions of this book?

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Reading other reviews, it seems to go from one extreme to the other. People love it, or hate it. I am most definitely one of the latter.

There are a few things I didn't like about this book, but the main thing was the narrator. Terrible. Far too rushed. Reminded me of being at primary school when you had to read in front of the class so would just rush through it as quickly as possible to get it over and done with. No pauses, no emphasis etc and plenty of mistakes. Worst audiobook I have ever listened to.

The bits I did hear weren't anything new making this a complete waste of time.

What was most disappointing about Mike Cernovich’s story?

Mike Cernovich

Would you be willing to try another one of Mike Cernovich’s performances?

No thanks. I'd rather stick sharp things into my ears.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I like the title. That's the most positive thing I can say. In fact, that's all of them.

Any additional comments?

Are you aware of Audible's returns policy?

Very amateur narration. Mistakes and stumbles. Information is very wishy washy

No real substance, just tries to sell more Guerrilla books. I can imagine this book could help a few people but most of it is repetitive of numerous other books that have already made names for themselves: Tim Ferris comes to mind.

Very important book for the new economy, get ready

What did you like most about Gorilla Mindset?

This is a very real book, the author is honest about his challenges in the past and how a weak mindset can ruin your life. He gives good practical advice about how to improve your mindset and achieve full Gorilla Mindset. This book really compliments James Altuchers "Choose your self guide to wealth"

Who was your favorite character and why?

Harambe

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

It's great to hear the truth and passion in his voice, also after listening to his podcast its easy to listen to his book.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

His opening and how his Dad told him to "get serious!" rocked me.

Any additional comments?

There is so much negativity now in the media and even in "self help" about being assertive and masculinity. Mike breaks those chains and allows you to break free of the slave mindset and embrace freedom and get your mindset right.

Decent content with rubbish Delivery

Would you try another book written by Mike Cernovich or narrated by Mike Cernovich?

Written - Yes
Narrated - No

What was one of the most memorable moments of Gorilla Mindset?

The section on money.

Would you be willing to try another one of Mike Cernovich’s performances?

No. His speech was lispy and confused. Too many mistakes.

If this book were a film would you go see it?

No.

Any additional comments?

Cernovich must get this book re-recorded.

not bad

some useful concepts and tips in here. But he spends a few chapters talking about nutrition and says "eggs, lean meats and animals products are really good for you" which is NOT TRUE and has been proven to cause many types of cancer. A vegan diet has been proven over and over again to be the healthiest diet. ANIMAL PRODUCTS CAUSE CANCER. GO VEGAN.
