Spartans vs Athenians!

You can tell that this is a very well read author who knows his stuff and knows how to write to get the message across! In fact, I can't put Ryan's books down. I've listened to two of them in the last four days! This book is great because it provides a ton of real-life and actionable examples on how to be more disciplined as well as explaining the importance of why behind it! The analogies that Ryan uses are spot on to get the message across. I especially enjoyed the comparison of the Spartans to the Athenians and how the Spartans preferred results and efficiencies (function over form) where as the Athenians preferred more ornate housing and finer foods (form over function.) Great book Ryan. I can't wait to listen to the next one.

Death by Power Point

This book has a good information, but the delivery is like sitting in a college lecture hall listening to a power point presentation. The author could have provided some background on where he received his information on special forces and the Spartans and how they develop self discipline. I was given this free review copy at my request in exchange for an unbiased review.

Great Life Tips and Easy to Follow

This was a pretty good listen for the price and length. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I got some really good tips and advice that I started applying to my daily life right away. It was great for my morning commute and lunch break because it wasn't too in-depth that you couldn't listen to it in short spurts when you have time.

All-in-all I'm quite glad I gave this one a chance. I'm actually looking forward to other books by this author no that I've finished this one.

The narrator was pretty good and I'd look forward to listening to him again.

I requested and received a free review copy of this audiobook from the author, narrator, or publisher in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.

Thorough

This is a great understanding of how the Spartans became so mentally tough. And it gives GREAT real world modern examples that we deal with on a daily basis and how to make small adjustments to become tougher. Definitely worthwile
