    "nope."

    first 'book' is shrill.
    the second is stupid.
    the third is trite.

    I found this thoroughly unhelpful.

    "Didn't Care For It"

    Don't really need to say much more. Didn't find much value in it and would like the time back that I took listening.

    "My #1 book of all time"

    Do you want to get out of depression, addictions, or a purposeless life?

    Read this ultimate 'WAKE UP CALL' it will teach you how to identify your dreams and gifts and turn them into daily work and craft.

    If everyone read this and took it seriously... there would be a big change in the world.

    P.S I also realized that I don't have to agree with everything in a book to make it the greatest book. There is so much good in it, the other nonsense is easily looked over. READ IT NOW!

    "First half or so is amazing"

    I enjoyed and got a lot out of the first half or so of the book. The concept of resistance is truly life changing and crucial to being productive. The second half or so of the book drones on about religion and is basically biblical pronciples reworded.
