    "Short, powerful, and oddly motivational"

    This book has some weird ideas in it, but it's powerful and motivational. Sometimes what matters isn't the truthfulness of an idea but the effect it has. This book had a positive effect on me.

    "Solid message"

    Overall context of the book has deep power. His persistence of using god as more than a metaphor pushes my mind to only take what I want from the book.

    "How Does Anyone Rate This Less Than 5 Stars"

    I laughed, I cried, but in the end I was truly inspired to make changes in my life. This is one of the best books I have ever listened to. Simply amazing. Buy it!

    I have to listen to it again. Not bad. I'll write more about it after the second listen.
