Publisher's Summary

Alright, listen in! 

The number one best-selling author of First Man In and The Fear Bubble is back with his most inspirational work yet.  

After 13 years in the military, including four in the UK’s elite Special Forces as a sniper, Ant Middleton was the epitome of military excellence. Since leaving the military, he has climbed Everest, sailed 3,500 miles in a gruelling recreation of the mutiny on the Bounty and become a best-selling author and TV host. He’s been around the block a few times, and he’s learnt a thing or two along the way.  

Mind over Muscle is a summation of all of these experiences. It’s the lessons gleaned from a colourful life, filled with extreme challenges. In this Audio Original, Ant Middleton shows you how to build up the most important source of strength you have: the power of your mind. Condensing his philosophy into four simple-to-grasp pillars, he then challenges you to go out there and live it.   

Using the tools of the four pillars, you’re ready to take on the Mindset Challenge. A revolutionary new concept, only possible in audio, the Mindset Challenge is a 28-day training plan for the mind. Each day, Ant will challenge you to embrace fear, be positive, take ownership of situations, learn to lead and have integrity.   

There are two lives you could be living. The one you’re living now. And the better version that’s just a thought away. Push yourself further than you’ve pushed before, and become the best version of yourself.

Mindset forever changed

What a great book!
I’m always looking to learn and develop and being a fan of Ant Middleton and his other two books, I was optimistic going into this one given that it is a different style to his previous.

It has legitimately changed my mindset in the time it took to listen to the book and it’ll continue to change it as Ant teaches you the way to think positively and live by a set of values.

The only downside is whilst they are good values they may not be your core values to live by.

Repeats the same thing

Repeated the same stories over and over until he added another one, which he then repeated alongside the rest. Very poor writing.

Too repetitive

I did enjoy the over-all concept but I found this book way too repetitive. Struggled to finish.

Terrible

I don’t like to leave negative reviews but this book is so terrible I think it would be dishonest not to leave a review. This whole book is so repetitive it’s taking the piss. All the information in this book would fit on an A4 sized piece of paper the rest was a waste of time

Well intended anecdote

Ant intends to pass on his knowledge and experience with the four pillars and the mindset challenge however it all seems just his personal experience and not anything that's been researched through psychology, science and other forms of justification of fact. I thought the mindset challenge at times was hard to make out and follow. Ant narrates well and I still learned a few things about and bettered myself by listening to this book

Repetitive and self-serving

This book is so ridiculously repetitive that I couldn't even get further than a few chapters.
What Middleton has to say could be whittled down to a modest booklet or possibly even a self-help pamphlet with lots of nice motivational pictures.
The fact that it's a book instead seems to reek of an attempt at making money.
I think a narrator with a better voice is much needed also.

Excellent

Ant is excellent as always - very thought provoking, and inspiring. The 4 pillars and the challenge is worth doing and the concepts will change your mindset to be a better version of you!
