Not worth it if you have common sense

I was honestly quite disappointed with this book. It was very clearly targeted at extremely unhealthy and overweight people.

The sage advice to “live to 100” included pearls of wisdom like “move slightly more” and “don’t drink soda”.

If you have more than 2 brain cells don’t bother.

Clearly not meant to be an audio book

Listen I have nothing bad to say about this book. Very highly recommend! But it is clear that it’s not meant to be an audio book as there are a few times that Ross reads recipes and workout plans to you. I found by the third or fourth time I was just fast forwarding through those parts.

It is an exceptional book and story though! Ross does an amazing job using lore, storytelling, and personal experience to really get his points across.

As mentioned I highly recommend

Must read for any coach

Ben Ryan does an excellent job with this book. Not only one of the most enjoyable reads I’ve had the pleasure to come across, but also countless lessons for an amateur/school coach like myself.

If everyone moved to Fiji for a few years and channeled their inner islander as Ben did, I believe the world would be a much better place.

Please take the time to read, you won’t regret it

Excellent advice and story

Scott does a great job digesting the large themes of financial freedom into relatable stories and enjoyable tales.

I highly recommend

This book gave great examples and lessons taken from actual people and situations. The only limitation is that it leaves a lot for the reader to adapt. I understand that every habit is a unique set of cues routines and rewards, but I had trouble identifying they in my own habits and thus making lasting changes.

Sadly I fear the ability to extrapolate the ideas from this book and apply them to your habits is almost impossible as the habits are taking place.

It was however very useful in identifying my wife’s habits and then making small suggestions to help her alter her unwanted habits. As an outsider looking in, these theories are very applicable!

Over all a great read (listen?) and I highly recommend.
