This book is sensational and well worth a listen.

I enjoy Urzila as a comedian, But don’t always understand the humour; I’m so glad she wrote this as it’s given me a whole new appreciation for her sense of humour and life story.

Really glad Urzila decided to perform the narration as I found myself rewinding quite a few times just so I could laugh out loud.

Thanks Urzila

An essential read

This book is a must have for anyone wanting to make difference to yourself, your family, your work and your community.
This really is a prequel to Getting to Yes, and something you’ll come back to time and time again because the advice is timeless and delivered with integrity.

Really poor story

This series of short episodes isn’t worth your time, not sure why Audible has even uploaded this.

I throughly enjoyed this book and appreciated the sensitive way each personal story was presented as an example in every chapter.

The self examination questions are brutal but vitally important for starting to understand yours sexual desires.

This book is really pop psychology without any real substance.

Do yourself a favour and don't buy it.

At great book which you'll want to finish in one sitting! My first Steven King novel and it won't be my last!

If you could sum up Procrastination in three words, what would they be?

Orovoking, Life changing

Any additional comments?

I loved this book!! For years I've struggled to understand my family and been racked by guilt over my own tendencies. Having grown up with it you realise something is wrong but not sure how to approach it or even to understand it from an emotional point of view. Instead of getting ridiculously over hyped time management 1 hour summaries/takeaways, you'll get an honest book which sheds light onto the issue and provides you with real strategies and processes to assist in overcoming this. This is now my bible for dealing with this issue.

Magda has candidly allowed Australia to gain an insight into her world and genetic makeup so I sincerely thank her for this. There are so many different parts to her story that I honestly believe everyone would be able to relate to, learn from or at the very least admire something in here.

Life changing - this is the best by far

At last here is a book that provides you with concrete explanations and processes which you can implement in your life so that you can Experience and Evaluate Happiness differently. This is not some hyped up American Self Help Guru who's going to make broad sweeping 'compact takeaways' of how to get superficially PUMPED up about your life and be a Positive Genuis etc.. Paul's academic and Policy background enables him to present a cohesive and fact based approach that's refreshingly realistic. I can't wait to read his other books

Would you try another book written by Alex Malley or narrated by Alex Malley and Stuart Dignam ?

The book has some important tips for those starting out in their career but it's far too general in it's approach and lacks details on how exactly the author undertook the course of action he's recommending. The book sounds like one huge promotion of the top 4 Accounting firms in OZ and that the only way to get a position there is to give your labour for free by volunteering your time over summer breaks, hmmmm.

Any additional comments?

Not worth buying, you can get this from most blogs these days
