Publisher's Summary

Animals are the direct product of their environment. They reactively evolve over time based on external circumstances. The process of their evolution is slow and random. Human beings are the indirect product of their environment. Although the environment is the medium through which humans adapt and evolve, our choices determine our environments. This is the fundamental difference. We get to decide the course and intensity of our personal evolution by intelligently designing our environments. By purposefully embracing difficult environments, and by cultivating highly conscious habits, you will actualize as a human being and experience complete freedom over the direction of your life.

Great book, narration not so much

I really like Benjamin's thoughts and process when writing articles and feel like this content was great but lacked suitable narration. It felt like a list of sentences or aphorisms being read out loud. Think it may have been the intonation used by the narrator. Buy the book instead!

Amazing... Listened while 4:44 am wake up and runs

I will listen it maybe 20 times more. And I know every listening will bring me same high level of excitement, crystal clear learning and huge improvements towards my ideal past, now and future. I was following Benjamin P. Hardy since jan 7th 2017 via Medium. He suddenly became one of my favourite authors, mentor and lifelong hero. And I see him happily that he is guiding hundreds of thousands of lucky people like me. Soon he will reach millions of people and world become a better place.

So disappointed

I continued listening in the background because it’s always helpful hearing things you’ve heard in the past, repeated. And that was my biggest problem with this book. While there are many times where he credits other authors or creatives, there are also many times he uses ideas and quotes I’ve heard originate elsewhere without due recognition. The vast majority of original ideas, which are very sparing, are communicated typically with condensation and judgment. Maybe he didn’t know he’s coming off this way, but even his recollection of his conversation with the literary agent he sought out, he clearly had his ego bruised and seemed angry, rather then expressing that he used her qualified comments as motivation to achieve results she didn’t predict for him. It would’ve been received better if he showed maturity in the situation by flipping what she said as fuel and reflective of her personal experience, rather than a personal attack. Additionally, there were a handful of comments made that very clearly made me feel he was only talking to men. It’s unfortunate, because I’m worth being included in the conversation and spoken to.

Too clichéd

The narrator does a great job of delivering rather boring and repeatable content in an amusing manner.

Voice is fine, but regurgitates info from others

The narrative voice and layout is fine. Inflection and tone are appropriate and good.

Contest is just regurgitated information from Seth Godin, Tim Ferris, and others all freely available on their sites or YouTube.

Author references them way too often that you’re better off getting their stuff from them.
Lastly, the book talks in circles a lot just retelling the same thing again and again like the author had to hit a minimum requirement.

Don’t ever spend money on this and if it is free... skip it.

Some questionable claims but overall inspirational

There were were some obviously "following the herd" claims that felt like snake oil advertising, but the book as a whole contained good wisdom and inspiration.

Resourceful & Quite Entertaining.

Would Recommend this to anyone listening/reading similar Audiobooks or material. Great short listen and not something 1 hour that is stretched into 5 hour material.

Really?

Advises you can find in Google like “coconut oil” and “fasting” is good.

WORST PART. This guy believes no one should ever retire nowadays because we don’t have physical labor? Also that we have to work until our last breath?

...Just crazy awful.

Fantastic

Great insights and very motivational. Many interesting takes on how to take REAL ownership of one’s life. This is a book I will listen to more than once.
