Motivating

I slowly got into it after a few chapters. Then I started to feel more understanding the principles of the book and it's relation to my own behaviours. When I got to the last chapter I did not want it to finish so I listened to it 3 times. I felt empowered from the PMA message

Brilliant. John’s style, in John’s voice.

So glad I bought this as the audio book. Nothing better than having John reading it to you himself in his own voice. He has a solid consistent message. John deals it out in his own style, underpinned by so much peace, goodness and hard earned wisdom. Having heard and loved John on podcasts, this is like an 8 hour podcast full of authentic stories and really genuine kind guidance. I know I’m going to listen to this more than once.

This was a great listen. If you are into punk rock or just feel like you need a life change this really helps you get out of your funk. John tells it like it is and its pretty funny.

WOKE MY ASS UP

Nobody can shake you to stare at your self and wake up from the mundane, like John Joseph. Such an inspirational, in your face, take no excuses dude who knows what he's talking about. It was way better listening to the book rather than reading, because you can hear his passion and heart through his voice. A must read if you want to find greatness in your life and change the mundane and the misery. You are capable of greatness, with PMA, nothing is out of reach!

Twice and three times

John is a legend and he presents this knowledge as someone who has tried and tested it. He also tells it in a humble and clear manner, without dryness and preachiness. Application of the knowledge and experience in here will take me or anyone work but isn’t that where the gold is? Here goes.

Keep up the good work (and the PMA) John!!! 🤟🏽🤟🏽🤟🏽🤟🏽🍀

Start to finish - inspiring

From the start to the finish this book is inspiring. A great mix of personal stories from John Joseph’s life, people he knows, spiritual teachers and metaphors.
I’m glad I listened to the audible version, John’s passion comes across with every word and imprints in your brain in the best way possible. 10/10

The book for everyone out there!

Absolutely loved it! John Joseph is the man who's been there and experienced it all and I am really grateful that he spent 2 and half years creating this book and that this book crossed my path. I know I will definitely be coming back to this back for ass kicking and motivation since I don't have anyone around me so PMA focused!!!

John's story is definitely inspirational and motivational and my next book will be his first book.

John's narration gives just that little extra what you need to get the points across.

Everyone will benefit from The PMA effect!!!!!

Thank you John 🙏

Listen to this ! It will change your mood !

This is a fantastic audiobook, I don’t think I could have listened to anyone else narrating this not because of the content but the energy John narrates it with is top class. I’ll listen to this more than once, it resonated with a lot of what was going on in my life and friends lives.
