Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It provided practical tools/skills we can implement into our daily lives.
A friend recommended this book to me I listen to it 3 times in less than two weeks. I like the fact that the author also narrates the book became you get the energy in the tone of his voice when he reads it.
The book is packed with life lessons, career, self love, attitude and many more.
I seen some people wrote negative reviews on here and I can’t see how this book would not help them, unless they don’t let it.
Open your mind and let this wonder work of Medcalf be a pillar in your brain.
Good book, fast-paced narrator
The book itself has a lovely content.
However, the narrator, speaks in a faster pace than I like for audiobooks.
