Extremely Helpful, Likeable, Down to Earth

If you could sum up The Art of Extraordinary Confidence in three words, what would they be?

Helpful, Likeable, Realistic

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Art of Extraordinary Confidence?

Whenever the author dispels other "Self Help" BS, and is just realistic. e.g. Other self-help says, "Just perceive the situation in a different way, just perceive/think the problems away" but he says We're not robots... it probably is really scary... embrace the awkward, painful, accept it. etc. I like how one of his approaches to confidence comes from recognising one's humanity, and everyone else's humanity.

Which character – as performed by Dr. Aziz Gazipura – was your favourite?

He jokes around a bit. He's just being himself, and confidently amuses himself. Good example.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

He's really likeable guy. His voice sounds soothing, comfortable, natural. Pleasant to listen to; Unlike those other weird, stilted readings that sound really fake. Great content. Humorous, not dry and dull to listen to. Even though he's a psychologist, he doesn't have to go into all the technical brain science which I'm tired of hearing from other self help books (almost all of them somehow end up talking about the Amygdala, Pre-Frontal Cortex, the Kids in the Cookie/Marsh-Mellow Test) He's practical. Even though he's a psychologist that helps people to understand their problems, he knows that understanding the problem alone doesn't help your improve. Unlike other motivational books writers whose approach is just pumping you up with positivity, Aziz's approach is more enduring and practical and real.

Beautiful journey

This book is a beautiful journey into the tools of confidence. The author allows himself to be vulnerable and share parts of his life and thoughts with the listener. It easy listening with layers of insight. Will listen again!!

Waste of Money

He talks about not being a nice person, saying he will help his girlfriend move then leaving her high and dry on the day because he decided he didn't feel it was right. Talk about deciding to ignore the impact of behaviour. Very disappointing, didn't bother to finish it.

THE. BEST. BOOK. ON. SELF. CONFIDENCE. EVER.

I am about 3/4 through this book and I am completely and utterly blown away by how insightful this author is. I have read many books books on this topic, but they were either horribly written, boring, lacked action steps, irrelevant to me, or were filled with filler. In contrast, this book is a big, thick, lean, juicy rib roast of amazing, extremely actionable content. Most importantly, the author gets it because he once suffered from very low self confidence and has since slain the Dragon. Okay. there is one thing I don't like... I feel an urge stop the audio every 5 minutes to not down notes. Therefore, I bought the paperback so I can write it. Do yourself a huge favor and buy this book for yourself or for someone who you feel suffers from low confidence or low self-esteem.

Finally! This book really is life changing!

I've read a lot of books about motivation, self development and trying to 'fix' whatever isn't working in your life. Most of them spend 90% trying to help you figure out why you might have whatever issues you have, and 10% giving any actionable solution. This book is 100% about giving you real, usable tools to make the changes in your life. This book actually got me off my @$$ and into real action. I feel better than I have in years and am so thankful to Dr. Aziz. This isn't a quick fix that will fizzle out once the novelty wears off either......it creates real, lasting change. I hope that anyone struggling with anything in their life will read/listen to this book. It's my new 'users manual' for my life!

And on a side note, Dr. Aziz is very pleasant to listen to....he reads this book like a friend just having a conversation with you.

packed with great advice and wisdom. I think everyone has an area in their life where they could is more confidence. No matter what is causing you to suffer in the area of confidence, this book has something that will make a significant difference.

All around goodness

Aziz is a great coach and has a generous and clear way of sharing his experiences and solutions. He also has a great voice, which is essential for me listening to audiobooks.

Very practical

I believe that this book is a complete practical guide for building self confidence. While I'm happy with my present life and success, every topic/problem/solution discussed by Dr. Aziz in this book resonates one hundred percent with me and reminds me that I can be much better happier person. I highly recommend everyone to read this book or listen :-)

There are very few audiobooks I listen from start to finish, but this is one! This book is amazing and insightful! Take your time and reflect on what he's says and you will be a changed person.

Top 5

I’ve read a lot of books and I highly recommend this one. That’s all I’ve got for rhetoric.

Good

It was nice to listen to this book
The performance is brilliant
There is some good ideas and stories
But it doesn’t give you the feeling of satisfaction at the end
As if you are spent a great time enjoying the introduction and the small talks and the preparation after asking a big question and the conversation ended up with you still waiting for the real answer

This Book, Quite Literally, "Changed My Life"

Yes, I know it's a huge cliche, but let me tell you that from my point of view it's completely true. I have read a number of books about self confidence, how to talk to and communicate with people effectively as well as how to cultivate a cast iron "can do" attitude to love and life, and whilst they all shared fundamental truths and values, this book probably had the biggest impact on my outlook and ultimately where I am today.

I have had a two year transformation from an overweight, internet obsessed, video game nerd, lonely, hugely introverted, massively unhappy and generally negative to someone who leads and inspires groups of people from all walks of life. When someone comes up to me and tells me how much I have inspired them by my positivity, confidence and personal warmth, it still blows me away. This book and especially Dr Aziz have my complete respect and thanks for showing me how to make this possible.

Mind blowing.

I wish i had read this book when i was younger. Dr Aziz debunks some of the most toxic and common misconception we hold about social behaviours and communication. The book is simple to understand full of examples and comparisons. The narration is enjoyably smooth and the tone is relaxed and empathetic as you feel in a real conversation with a friend. The best self help book i ever listened.

Boring, but it might help beginners.

As a disclaimer, I need to say that I'm not particularly lacking in confidence - I got this book because a couple of areas of my life needed attention, and as such I believed this book would help me. I was wrong but it may benefit someone else more.

I'm currently halfway through, and all I've gleaned thus far is that I need to take risks -- well No Shit Sherlock.

Do I waste any more time on this? I don't think so - I need to be stimulated, not sent to sleep with stuff you can pick up for free on Youtube.

Well Worth It!

If you could sum up The Art of Extraordinary Confidence in three words, what would they be?

Dr Aziz really speaks to you, I mean he understands what feelings, worries, concerns we are going through because he has been there himself. What got me more than anything else was his sincere desire to help people. A lot of his methods are fleshed out by real-life examples from his life! This made it a lot more authentic and genuine in my mind. I just finished the audiobook today and was gutted that it ended. It was like having a good friend talking to me over the last few weeks. It reinforced some things, which I guess, I already knew, but it also opened up new ways of thinking about things.

Any additional comments?

If you want help and direction on attaining greater confidence, then this book is a must-have'! But don't be fooled into thinking (me included) that by listening to this book, you will come out like some confident superman or superwoman. Yes, it will happen only if what you hear, you put into practice (again, myself included). I definitely, recommend this book. Thanks DR Aziz!

So inspirational

I'm listening to this audio book for the second time now as I find it so inspirational and motivating. It's very easy to listen to and not too heavy going at all. I can honestly say it's changed my life.
