One of the most important book

In all, I truly liked the Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, but this audiobook was better...deeper, more important, and returned some very tough issues and asked even harder ones about ourselves. Highly suggest it.

I found it very affirming.

This audiobook, which is a bit of a follow up to the Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck goes into various issues on a much deeper level. If the user is awaiting a breezy audible, you won't get it.

Good read for beginners

Great essential tips and policies for Shopify and dropshipping. Not all of it was relevant to South Africa though. Some topics are discussed in a very broad rainbow.

A Feel Good Book

I got a lot of excellent new information despite being an avid user of dozens of self-help books. Really great hands on advice, that you should implement straight away!

Really Well Done Book

Surely not your usual self-help book. You won't hear a bunch of quotes about how special and amazing you are. What you'll hear is just how average you truly are but there's nothing wrong with that.

Helpful book.

This audiobook doesn’t appreciate how good the business is. It’s very helpful since it tells you what you should require in all business.

Great book with easy to follow directions.

I believe you will require more special or better strategies ultimately with marketing but you have to start around and this will get you going.

Assortment of Good Advice`

There is a bit of rambling at times, but also some golden nuggets especially in the later chapters. For example, the author mentions the following quote and at the same time tells a story his own life experiences:

Amazing

Sometimes things in life can’t be changed by simply thinking more positively. Really bad things happen. It’s important to ride the emotions and then reflect. I am dunno. Lots of simple advice. I wasn’t expecting that much based on the title.

Pleased Overall

I've always said it's a lot more peaceful taking advice from random foreigners than someone who "wants the best for you;" and that's how I feel about this in comparison to other books written by "experts." It's things we require to hear in a tone that we need to hear them in.
