Publisher's Summary

In December of 2011, I gave a talk to an audience of scientists, Pentagon officials, politicians, and CEOs on the secret of life and how I'd figured it out the previous summer. Afterward, people came up individually and told me how much what I'd shared meant to them. This book is based on the truth I spoke about. It's something I learned from within myself, something I believed saved me. And more than that, the way I set about to do it.

This is a collection of thoughts on what I learned, what worked, what didn't. Where I succeed and importantly, where I fail daily. The truth is to love yourself with the same intensity you would use to pull yourself up if you were hanging off a cliff with your fingers. As if your life depended upon it. Once you get going, it's not hard to do. Just takes commitment and I'll share how I did it.

It's been transformative for me. I know it will be transformative for you as well.

It's ok. quick read.

I think it's a good book especially for people that haven't read many other books yet that go deeper into the topic. its basically a short and easy simple summary scratching the surface of a bunch of other books like Biology of Belief, the secret, E-Cubed, a new earth... etc.

C

not terrible, but nothing earth-shattering either. Kind of reminded me of a less-gushy version of Louise Hay's Mirror Work ("I love and appreciate myself" bla bla bla). I'm sure you'll experience something if you do it. For $3, why not?

Not for everybody

Appreciate you sharing your experience, however in my opinion it was not for me. I think whatever you needed to tell yourself to get through worked for you but truly these basic techniques of repeating mantras will not work for everyone. God bless.

Largely useless fluff

Repeat "I love myself" 2 billion times. The rest is just to boost word count.

Decent

Would definitely not pay 20 for this book, but if you need some reassurance, it's a decent read. Not sure all the hype around it, nothing he says is truly life changing, but reiteration. The idea that repetition can lead to truth. Remind yourself each day why you love yourself.

"The making of a Silicon Valley psychopath."

is what this book should really be titled, but luckily for the author his fake persona and influence in the industry smooth-slides his drivel into the bestsellers list.

Can't believe I wasted my time and money

Was very disappointed in this book.
It offered little practical advice and was very thin on real content. What little content there was, was stretched out to fill out the book.

Waste of time

The book doesn't give any content, context or ideas. All chapters come down to repeating the phrase 'I love myself'. It was even unbearable to try to listen to it. I find it even rude to release such a book, when there are so many useful books full of ideas, trying to give methods about how to do something or change anything. You won't find it in this book.

Terrible book.

I hated this book and it was a struggle to listen to. Nothing about it motivated me or made me believe his 'method' works. What is his method anyway? I'm not entirely sure. Repeatedly tell yourself "I love you' and meditate? Jeez. This book was a jumbled up mess.

A very easy listen and powerful

I found this book flowed well and very easy to listen to. The words love yourself are so simple but so powerful at the same time. I found myself feeling a little emotional hearing those words particularly with the exercise being described where you look in the mirror and into your eyes and say those words over and over for 5 mins. I plan to listen to this audiobook regularly and will practice the advice given. Thanks Kamal x

I really regret spending money on this.

The author tells you to repeat "I love myself" over and over. That's it. That's the whole book. Each chapter is about 2 mins long. I really got nothing out of this and I can't see how anyone else would either. Harsh but true- save your money.

The Rawest, Most Genuine Writing This Century

I’ve read tonnes of self-help books from the greatest gurus of all time, and I dare say that this is one of the most genuine piece of work I’ve ever come across. I don’t how else to say it, but it’s just not fake. The concept sold by the author is not new, but it’s genuine. I felt it and I am reminded how very much I want to restart this process in my life. Thanks Kamal, keep on writing.
