Publisher's Summary

"If you want to become the best you, but are unsure how to get there, start here." (Rachel Hollis, number one New York Times best-selling author of Girl, Wash Your Face and Girl, Stop Apologizing)

In this remarkable, life-changing new book, renowned inspirational speaker Trent Shelton shares his revolutionary tool kit for transforming your life and reaching your goals.

Trent Shelton seemed to have it all together - until everything fell apart. A college football standout, his NFL dreams died when he was cut from multiple teams. With no job and no prospects, learning he had a child out of wedlock on the way and numbing himself with whatever he could find, Trent then found out one of his closest friends had killed himself. Life seemed without hope - until Trent discovered the secret to finding promise in the darkest of times. And now he shares that secret with you. 

Writing from deep, been-there experience, Trent walks you on a journey to become the best hope-filled version of yourself. In The Greatest You, Trent will help you:

  • Become everything you are meant to be
  • Face the reality of your circumstances and realize your purpose in life
  • Break free from toxic environments and forgive those who've harmed you
  • And learn how to guard yourself against the pitfalls of life

Weaving together personal stories from his own life and from others who have also gone through hard times, Trent reveals how you can bring out the best in yourself and establish a happier, more fulfilled future for generations to come.

Skip the recorded book and listen to his podcast

Love this guy’s message and podcast...but this narration, awful. Can’t do it. He went to the ... William Shatner...school of...narration. A pause...after each....and every...phrase. Even speeding it up didn’t help.

Inspiring

I really like Trent and his passion for LIFE. I follow him on Facebook and find him (and his story) very inspiring. However...there were times...I found...the audiobook...hard to follow...because...he paused...so often...in a sentence. But overall I enjoyed it and recommend it!

Might be better than I gave it credit for.

So, I was completely prepared to give this book 1 star... up until I got to the last few chapters.
I had a REAL hard time getting past his vocal speaking patterns... his use of the dramatic pause every 5-6 words drove me nuts.
It apparently took me almost the entire book to get past it and finally hear his message. Once I did I really enjoyed the content... so much so that I might just restart it from the beginning and give it another shot.
