Critic Reviews

"If you are looking for an example of a book that has gone viral, this is it. Certainly 'populist,' this book struck a cord with readers and those looking to put their goals into practice. One of the best aspects of this book is it helps you see paths to fulfilling your dreams, instead of just stirring you to change. Good read for those who want to leave the beach in better spirits than when you found it." (Todd Wilms)

Motivated

Would you listen to How Not to Give Up again? Why?

Yes, I would listen to this book again because of the way it motivated me to continue pursuing all the goals that I have set for myself in the past few months.

What about Smokey Rivers’s performance did you like?

I enjoyed the tone a lot.

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

No, a few sittings

Any additional comments?

This is one of the best audiobooks only because you can listen to it throughout a regular day at work, at the gym, or even at home and it will just push you to do more with yourself and not give up in any avenue in your life.

Ok story line but kinda boring

I was a bit disappointed with the reading he didn't show any excitement at points that could have had real potential. The point seems drawn out and I felt this was a shame perhaps more stories could be added but more concise to make it a better motivating book. Not a bad effort but the reading really brought it down I may have enjoyed to more in hard copy reading it personally.
