This autobiography is truly captivating and will leave you wanting to know even more about the man who became a legend and the undisputed heavyweight GOAT.

The voice acting is brilliant, providing an atmosphere and level to the story that sucks you in and makes you believe that you are really listening to the great man himself.

Exploring the racial and political aspects of Ali's career, this book gives you an insight into what drove him to make the decisions he made with his career and personal life and what drove him relentlessly forward to earning the World Heavyweight champion title.

A great listen, can not recommend enough.

This is a great book to learn some tactics and strategies to overcome adversity and building resilience in a framework of grieving.
I would highly recommend this for people who are learning to deal with grief due to the loss of a loved one or helping someone who has lost a loved one.

Some of the strategies and tactics can carry over to other aspects of facing adversity and building resilience but this book offers little in situation examples other then in the context of loss of a loved one.

The book is quite emotional and could potentially be triggering for some people - I personally had some nights of rough sleeping thinking about the concept of loss and grief.

This was a great book which covered all the basics you need to know to put you on the way to being stronger and leaner.
Nothing over complicated and hard to follow - just common sense training advise packaged in a way that is easy to follow.
Worth the listen for those starting out.

Absolutely love this book

This is one of my favourite books of all time and the audio book version does it justice. The narration is amazing and captures the essence of the story perfectly, conveying the many layers of the story and capturing the listeners attention effortlessly.

I am late to jump on the Tim Ferriss band wagan but this man is amazing as is this book.
It is super easy to follow and to learn from - imparting some really basic yet effective ways to launch your own side hustle.
I took these lessons and was able to implement my own project - did it work, no - but it felt amazingly empowering knowing that this is not something mystical that is beyond the realms of my power and I just need to keep trying to find the right idea.
Highly recommend.

This is a great book! Sir Ben Kingsley does an amazing job of narrating the the life of Yogananda.
The story itself is very very interesting and the lessons convey are interwoven into the story of Yogananda's life but also explicitly told in other parts.

Some areas did become a bit dull at times but this was few and far beyond in this 12hr + book.

Would recommend.

This book is a pretty good but standard motivational book - really forgettable as it does not go in depth to the various theories and topics. A good listen but i wouldn't rush to get it.

Any additional comments?

This book is VERY science heavy - it covers a history of the world (literally the planet and universe) in terms of Chemistry, physics, biology and every science inbetween and beyond.

Has some interesting bits of trivia and facts but also has very long spells technical jargon which I just couldn't stay alert too.

Overall an alright book but would not recommend unless you are wanting to learn heaps of science trivia that you might remember inbetween long spells of sleepiness.
