Publisher's Summary

The best-selling self-published phenomenon addressing our urgent need for self-love in the world today. Now expanded with new listener-oriented lessons and a powerful and transformative personal story of the practice in action.

Kamal Ravikant knows misery well. In 2011, the company Kamal had spent the last 10 years of his life nurturing and growing suddenly and embarrassingly went under. He experienced a profound depression, the kind that made him physically ill and bedridden. The only source of light in this darkest moment was a meditation, a chant that came to him and provided the only source of comfort he could muster: I love myself.

Kamal began his transformational journey by repeating this over and over to himself. I love myself. I love myself. I love myself. Even when he didn’t believe it (especially when he didn’t believe it).This meditation grew in the form of a system of tools for keeping him positive, balanced and moving forward. Kamal’s spiritual healing changed his physical and emotional states, and his entire person shifted for the better.

Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends on It is the powerful story of Kamal’s radical self-growth journey and his specific practice for listeners. Dynamic, vulnerable and ultimately life-changing, this book holds a universal appeal for anyone who has ever struggled to get out of bed in the morning or smile through profound sadness.

Kamal Ravikant: RUOK, I wanted to call Life Line.

Kamal, I am worried about you. You are not happy. You need to get out and read your own book.
You have a good message but you came across as co-dependant in your relationship experience and that would push anyone away.

I regret you recommended denigrating the other person to empower your self and that is wrong.
Don't do that. They are human and they need to grow as well. Empower the world and you will empower yourself.

RUOK is a web site and group that supports people in emotional need.

Maybe I am wrong. I normally do not leave reviews for books that I do not like or disagree with. Kamal you have something to offer, This book has something to offer but be joyous. I hope to see how you go.

Could have been written on one page

I had such mixed feelings and thoughts on this book. What started out as some sound advice ended up an overly long tale of his tragic love life that I didn't need to know. Kamal is earnest and I liked that. Better if he had taken the focus off himself a little bit and mixed in the stories of others and their success. Felt a bit like advice for teens and twenty somethings - perhaps a needed genre? Spoiler alert. 1. Repeat often I love myself. 2. Sit for 7 minutes and listen to music saying I love myself. 3.Look in the mirror and say I love myself - 'go all in you're worth it'. 4. Repeat. If you want to take this concept to a deeper and more mature level level I'd suggest Tara Brach or Susan Salsburg. My advice to Kamal is live life a bit longer, develop his practice and rewrite in thirty years. It could be great.

Wow!

This book really hit hard in a beautiful way. It opened up something inside of me that I know I need to heal. With his beautiful story telling and soft yet clear voice, I’ve just started my healing journey. I’ll be sure to follow his new work.

Transforming, raw and deep truths

He is so honest. I love that. Loving yourself is no quick fix and I had to realise that in order to persist. Thank you Kamal this truly could be the light many have been seeking.

Couldn’t get into it.

Sorry, but I really struggled with this.

It lacked substance. It felt like a light version of many much better books.

Maybe a professional narrator may have made it a bit better? Probably not.

Very helpful and easy to digest

It starts a bit slow but it ends up being a thought provoking, insightful compendium of stories and teachings that translate to anyone’s life.

Armed with radiant vibe to lift your mood while you’re reading it, and well tested lessons and tips to improve your outlook and perspective in the long term, this book is a little gem that should be read as many times as necessary to ensure its spirit and ideologies stick with the reader and thus improve their lives.

Don’t expect to magically improve upon reading it, as Kamal implies, change has to come from within, but nevertheless he has given you the tools through his book to allow the change to be long lasting and profound.

Very good read

This is a wonderful book. The author's life events are so relatable, making the recommended exercises easy to assimilate.
I struggled a little with narration style but got used to it over time.

Going to take a 2nd run around the block immediately as there's plenty of gold in here.

Profound and Simple

Loved this book from the very first moment. It’s full of simple, profound and actionable take aways.
I started implementing right away and have noticed a difference
Part 2 of the book drags on a little but there’s still loads of gems.
The author reads very slowly. I’d suggest listening at 1.5

Incredible must read!

Far out- so simple- yet so powerful! This is a must read for anyone struggling with self worth. Have experienced a huge shift after only 2 months of practising. Loved that you can grasp the concept fully in under 2hrs.

A break-up story

The book was good but about half of it is about the author's break-up. It was just too much.

I found this book really slow and depressing to listen. the author doesn't change his tone of voice. I feel he talks to much about his break up

unbearable

monotonous voice and slow story. Daily pitty party for one at the end of the book. Good that the author overcame his heartbreak but I did not get anything of value at the apart from the title, Love yourself like your life depends on it, because it does. That's ir, this is done, choose another book

Wearing your 'Heart' on your sleeve comes to mind!

I read the first book probably a couple of times. And I enjoyed this Part 2 (that comes after the original version) in this book.

Glad Kamal came back to this - good story line - and he also has a very good tone, which always helps when we are listening!

The big question - does it work - you will have to put the work in to find out!! But worth it.

This book is a humble, honest and very simple guide to begin to make massive changes in your life. With very clear and easy steps that require little effort and time.. i began straight away and feel there is some real power in this already. Thank you Kamal for feeling the fear and doing it anyway.. you’re reaching the people that need to hear your story.
