To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I strongly struggle to read this book. I have been discovered that I need a little voice and book. The audio sample sounds of monitoring.... and all reviews said the same thing. My brain wants to buy the audio version, but the voice of the speaker and the review of it makes me feel drowning. After the 5 second rule I every time start to say No... a do it over again will be awesome * but please with Mel or a speaker with more power behind the voice. I would buy
There are some good points throughout the book, but it has a lot of parts where so much is written without really making any useful point. I was really looking forward to reading this book after watching her motivational talk on youtube. I couldn't recommend this book.
I bought this book after seeing Mel Robbins talk on TED. She seems very 'no-nonsense' and i thought she might have something valuable to offer.
What is good: She's a pretty clear writer. Easy to understand. Straightforward, sassy and humorous. I kinda like her tone. Good for someone who has a vague sense that their life isn't quite right, but not sure whats going on. Someone who wants to read about the problem.
Whats not so good: No good for someone who knows exactly what they need to accomplish and who has already taken stock of their life. I gets very boring and repetitious to hear anecdote after anecdote of people who were not realizing that their lives suck. As a reader you keep thinking she is then going to tell you HOW TO CHANGE IT, but that NEVER HAPPENS!! And you read more and think maybe now she is going to tell you how to change it, but it never happens.
Instead of actual steps to change, she'll, for example, comment on something you are doing that is self destructive and say 'so just stop doing it!' Really? just 'stop doing it'? Thats the advice? That is the biggest problem with this book - it professes to help you become more powerful over your life, but all it does it tell you to do something about it without actually telling you HOW!!
If you're generally interested in how people are delusional about their lives you will like this, if you yourself need self mastery, this won't help you.
