A simply Brilliant Book

I enjoyed listening to this audiobook. I found it inspiring and mood-enhancing. In my opinion everyone would benefit from listening to this as it really gives excellent insight into how you can make your life better by changing your habits and sticking to the new self. The narrator's voice is very pleasant to one's ear.

Brilliant is a new Standard

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

Brilliant is a new Standard! a cheerful listening, filled with quite a lot of personal stories, and all explanation about how he learn that lessons, nothing too new if you've heard other self help books, like it's all about action, will of life, be positive, time your goals...but it's somehow good to hear these again and again..help to rethink and keep up.

Which character – as performed by Michael Heppell – was your favourite?

Michael Heppell performed very well, in fact the good thing is that it does not sounds like he's performing, he's just sharing his experience and learning.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

overall, inspiring and cheerful to listen

it's well.... brilliant!

I love Michael Heppell's stuff. Applicable both to life and business, he is the chamois leather that clears your windscreen so you can see exactly where you're going and how to get there. If you think you know all you need to know about what it is you have to do, you probably don't until you've read Michael's book. My vision is so much clearer, my time so much better organised, my priorities make more sense and I'm more productive as a result of techniques I've learned from Michael. Especially great if you feel down, stuck in a rut, feeling certain that there was supposed to be more to life. There is! And "How to be brilliant" guides you down that path in a totally non-patronising way that is real and achievable. Love it.

this is like clickbait but for audio books

introduction is unbearable, I want to actually learn something, not hear the author brag about how great the book is, for two chapters

What happened to the end?

Great book, shame that it cut every chaleter and I never got to know what the last few words were!

Brilliant

So much practical information given with great real life examples. This is a self-development book that is great for all kinds of goals and types of people. It's also good that the author has a website and tools to get you started once you have read the book.

Prefer his others

I've read/listened to most of Michaels books and prefer a few of the others to this personally.
I'll admit I listened to this book over about 10days so it was a bit scattered, so I'll schedule to listen to it again in a shorter block and hopefully get more from it.

Can't deny there's still some great, easy to use info- but was always it's about he doing not just listening and agreeing!

Possibly the best self-help book I've read

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

Yes, I've already done so. Most self-help books only contain a modicum of information, whereas this book gives practical steps for improving your life.

What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Be Brilliant?

The comparison between Richard Branson's actions and those of a friend during childhood. Action is the difference between success and failure.

Any additional comments?

Definitely worth a credit.
