"Better Title: "The Catch-22 of Self-Discipline""
Let me sum up the advice of this book in a single sentence: To develop self-discipline, you should do lots of things every day that require self-discipline. I kid you not. I think for most people, if they had the self-discipline required to do these things each day, they wouldn't be reading a book on how to develop the self-discipline required to do the things every day that doing will lead to stronger self-discipline. There are some good tools in the discussion of how to avoid some common pitfalls, so it's not a total waste, but it could be half as long. As editor, I would lose the long section inviting the reader to do many things that if he/she had the discipline to do in the first place they wouldn't be reading this book. Or, I would at least acknowledge the Catch-22 inherent in that advice, and explain how some of the techniques might work. I'm not convinced that forcing myself to take a cold shower every day is really going to build the sort of self-discipline I'm looking for. What I really think is that maybe Martin has watched one too many Bond or Bourne films, and in the end, I blame the editor more than the author for not trimming some of that self-help fat. But who am I to throw stones? The man's written books. I haven't. But I don't take five-minute cold showers either (unless there's a bet involved, and then Tim Ferris can explain the purpose of that).
"Dull, boring, pointless, awful."
I try not to give bad reviews. I figure if I don't like a book, maybe it's just not for me. Maybe someone else could like it.
This is an exception. Because - This book has no point. It's a rambling collection of silly essentially trite nonsense. I learned nothing. His examples are dull. His suggestions are eye-rolling awful. His "technique's " are borderline stupid. Example: learn self-discipline from taking cold showers. Wow, I paid ten bucks for that?
As bad as the writing is, the narrator is perhaps even worse. Slow, meandering, and devoid of any inflect or personality, he is as dull as white bread. My audible collection is well over 500 books, and this narration is perhaps the all-time worst.
Summary: Bad writing, bad narration, bad production. Just bad.
"It's a diet book/exercise book"
Not at all what was expected. I was looking for daily discipline techniques not a diet book.
I could not finish this book. The content is much to basic (preschool of discipline) and the readers voice was irritating. I want my money back. I give it zero stars.
"very generic. seems shallow"
seems OK. but everything is very shallow. I expected a more in depth study. it's like general rule of thumb
"Waste of time"
This was a total waste of time and money. Advice like take cold showers to succeed. I'm glad the cost and time was not much.
The information in this book is very elementary ... No new info. This the same stuff we've all heard, read and known for more than a decade! Don't waste your time reading it.
"good points, worth a listen"
It's mostly him talking about weight loss. The principals do apply universally and some of his advice on discipline is particularly concise. It's worth the listen just don't expect anything groundbreaking.
"Clear, concise, effective ideas"
Clear. Concise. Effective.
The author. The narrator was also very good for this type of book.
The question is not applicable for this type of book.
Physical excellence is an essential part to building a self-disciplined life.
The ideas are expressed clearly and concisely. There are no wasted words. I also appreciate the references to other helpful research and books. I really enjoy listening to books by this author.
Really tried to listen to this book but the reader's voice and energy bored me to tears. Didn't feel motivated. Why such a dry delivery?
