Imagine the kind of outline you used to make for a term paper in High School. Imagine that the main headings are A+ material, the sub-headings are A- minus material, and when you get down to the details, the quality drops off to C+.
This book is just like that.
The author has a strong personal story, and the main themes of the book – that good things usually come from risk taking, that “playing it safe” has its own dangers, and we should not allow setbacks to make us overly risk-averse – are totally valid and need to be said. I was a bit disappointed at the (lack of) depth however. Instead of a great principle, deeper explanation of the principle, multiple examples of the principle in action, and suggestions/plans for applying the principle, the reader gets a great principle followed up by cheerleading, slogans, and other relative superficialities.
Overall not a bad book, and it’s based on some outstanding insights. I fully expect this author’s next book to be better.
One of the greatest read. I cried in almost every chapter I had to stop digest, regress in order to move forward to progress in my new place of peace, learning and unlearning. Processing differently a renewed mind. This book opened up some stuff, killed some stuff, confirmed some stuff man this is Holy Ghost help book. #nomoreselfhelp #ihadagoodpurge. I wanted to finish this book quickly but I couldn’t it requires me to take my times plus the things that it revealed about me I needed time to process. I felt as if I could write my own book for each chapter. AWESOME
