I'm glad I listened to the whole thing and didn't give up after the intro which made me want to punch the author in the face. Plenty of good suggestions, research and examples. I am particularly glad I listened to the parenting chapter. I will be trying some of this on myself and with my family.

Not a self help fan, but this was great

I don't usually like what I consider to be self help books. This is definitely a self help book, but I enjoyed it a lot.

Really good, but maybe trying to hard

I enjoyed the story but thought the author made too many blatant attempts at being relatable in his character building. Too many references to current businesses, brands or trends for my taste. No waste though, good book.

Actually better than the first one

Actually better than the first book, not just the story, but the writing in general.

A YA novel worth your time

Wether you are a young adult or just an adult who enjoys YA, this book is ideal. Sanderson doesn't need cheap sexuality and clichés to connect with the reader. Straight up good, stories, original plots and characters who feel real and are complex. A fantastic adaptation of his work in the Stormlight Archive suitable for a younger audience without losing any value.

Loved every bit of it

I am not surprised I have loved this book, I am a true Sanderson supporter - he doesn't miss when it comes to the Cosmere. But this was different. A post-apocalyptic world with the original signature Brandon always leaves in his work. Absolutely fantastic. The reader was obviously carefully selected - matches the main character perfectly, and his performance adds a lot to the experience. Totally recommend this audiobook - I'll be listening to the next book in the series in a minute or two.

Such a great addition to the story! I'm a bit bummed that the next one won't come out until 2020 or so. But these books are fantastic, so we'll just have to wait. Excellent performances by both readers that totally capture the spirit of the characters and Roshar.

These short novels helped me realise how much I still need to learn about the Cosmere. The performers are absolutely great, and the stories are fantastic as always.
