Needs Work - Overall Positive
Good intentions but I couldn’t help often feeling a sense of negatively as James would call out how other models and people are wrong and wouldn’t follow through with a clear alternative.
I bought the book in pursuit of some positive uplifting learnings and whilst I captured some, I had to endure ample amounts of time listening to him ‘complain’.
Hilariously informative. Has a different way of explaining things, so many light bulb moments.
Just because you have a instagram following does not make you a expert.
