Solid advice from a genuine person

Dang, I love this book. I discovered Trent Shelton while looking for a new podcast. He's so inspiring and easy to listen to. I'm well beyond being a young adult, but I still got a ton from this book. Love that he narrates it himself. Highly recommend this book for anyone who wants a bit of inspiration and good advice about life from a genuine person.

Good book

I've always liked Trent Shelton videos online. I knew his book would provide great insight and it did. This book gave you some real facts about life and really made you think. It was an easy to follow book. I would recommend this book to others.
