Good insights if you're a diehard Kevin Hart fan

Does a good job at outlining techniques to help goal setting, achieving and to help tackle some generally well known self sabotage techniques. if you've read any self help stuff before and/or looked at Stoicism, there's really just a rebranding exercise. If you haven't, an entertaining exploration is to be found. If you're a big Kevin Hart fan you'll love it. Great performance in the reading and the no-BS language is engaging and entertaining. If not you might find the drawn out jokes a bit frustrating and detracting from the message. Does miss the mark a bit in this regard, there are jokes that just go on for too long, Kevin seems to be missing immediate audience feedback from stand-up comedy and doesn't quite know when to wrap jokes up. 'Golden nuggets' being the best example. Overall, an entertaining listen to a timely topic. Some ' Golden Nuggets' await.

funny but repedative

Hearing is believing!

I'm someone who is currently struggling to find the mental bandwidth to get through a chapter, let alone a whole book so have turned to this as my first audiobook attempt....it didn't disappoint! Went out grocery shopping and got through half of it - the only problem was trying to discretely hide my nasal snort laughs in between tears of truth...this got me deep. Filed with nuggets and gems...if you know, then you know.

Forgettable to be honest

Looking at the reviews I feel this is a bit overrated. It's not bad per say, but I barely remember any of it now after listening to it a couple of months ago. I will say that Kevin is a great talker and is easy to listen to. It's all pretty basic stuff though. I am glad other people are getting a lot out of it.

Wow! You gonna learn today!

Kevin has been one of my favorite comedians since I can remember. You can always tell when there is more to a person than their main act. That’s definitely true for Kevin. This man knows his sh!t. I never thought I’d look at Kevin as a motivational mentor but he definitely is now. If you could see my Audible library, you’d see I have hundreds of audiobooks and it’s filled with about 95% leadership and motivational self-help books. I’d rank this in my tops 3 books on Audible. . And definitely top 1 book for being the realist. Thank you Kevin for putting this “audio” together.

The shift I needed! Thanks Kevin

I’m Cara the one and only @TheCareerCheerleader, however recently living through this quarantine life hasn’t exactly been ideal, or cheerful. I’m usually the one with the inspiring words for others, and in the last few weeks I’ve struggled to find the words to inspire myself, let alone others, literally leaving speechless. As I worked to observe, adjust, and evolve through this, I saw Kevin’s book coming and instantly knew I’d have something to keep me mentally entertained, BUT who knew I’d receive the shift I needed to get up off my hindparts (as my dad would say) and quit pussyfooting’ around with my life (something else my dad would also say)! Thank you Kevin for your consistently candid nature and OVERALL transparency! This was needed! This book is ESSENTIAL for anyone on the life long path of leveling up! I appreciate your insightful narration as well, I could listen all day, and I did! This was the best 5+ hours of my day today #Priceless

Your hardcore “real ness” is so fu$&ing motivating! I can’t believe how fast the time flew by listening to you. I’m listening again tomorrow. Thank you for this. Really needed it at this time in my life, as well as this time in our world. Thank you Kevin Hart.

Very inspirational

I loved this book. It was delivered well. It put you in the mind of Napoleons Hills work. After reading such a positive motivating book everything I’ve heard from this book is of some use and I love the levity that Kevin uses to keep the listener captivated.

AMAZING!

Not really a surprise from someone who strives to do, and be great, but this book is AMAZING! Of course, it’s laugh out loud funny but at the same time he’s dropping GEMS! Definitely going to listen again and again!

I really wanted to like this

I really wanted to like this audiobook but it is HARD to listen to. I wish Kev would have just read it instead of being so quirky and trying to force the laughs. It was distracting and got annoying to the point where I stopped multiple times to take a break from listening. I know he is knowledgeable and may have some motivating lessons in here but I just cannot listen anymore

a lot of nuggets

ok so I'll start with saying I am a huge kevin hart fan and there are moments in this book that really stand out, for many different reasons for me: 1. kids doing drugs in their butts for some reason nowadays 2. watch out for never or always in your thoughts 3. the force field trick 4. how pac man sounds 5. the phone call at the very end 6. all the new words. I would give this 5 stars but it felt slightly repetitive towards the last chapter before the questions. And I may never eat chicken nuggets again. There are genuinely some brilliant tips to improve yourself here and Kevin Hart is always inspiring so if your here for self help reasons you will probably get more out of this than for someone hoping to get even more insight to Kevin beyond I can't make this up. Ultimately yes I would recommend this, for an improvement book its definitely much easier to digest than the usual dry reading/listening.

Gems & nuggets!

You can’t put something this good into a paper book. You can only listen to it. Powerful, authentic truth, and I laughed out loud at Kevin’s delivery. A great role model.

Absolutely incredible listen.

What a book.. well an audible one! I wish everyone took time to listen to this one because it has completely changed my mindset already and It’s so relatable. The natural comedy throughout makes it such a easy listen, I have laughed out loud on my daily walks on my own (with some funny looks!) Fully recommend this purchase!!

Crisp golden nuggets

I‘m a fan of self development content, and Kevin Hart didn’t say much different than what I’ve heard before. But his uniqueness lies in bringing the message in a new perspective that is easy, palatable, hilarious and, most importantly, relatable. And the mastery is using humor to make it so impactful. We laugh, relax, and the information sinks in a lot easier. I definitely recommend this audiobook. If you’re a human being, for sure there’s a golden nugget in there for you. There were definitely some very impactful ones for me. Thanks, Kevin.
