Brilliant!

An absolute must have for anyone looking to level up as a human! Great work fellas.

*Super Tip ~ For some reason the audio has been slowed down a touch. Listen at 1.2 speed to enjoy this book as you would normally hear them speak in the podcast.

Great insights and ideas presented well

The Adams are an acquired taste (great if you’re a guy ~25 - 45) I thought they were good fun and relatable. They cover a huge stack of classic reads which are nicely grouped into lessons. Well done.

If I had to choose one book, it would be this one!

I can't believe how much value Adam & Adam packend into this book! You get the best bites of the best books, packed into one beast of a book. If you don't want to read hundreds of books, go with The Sh*t They Never Taught You and your life will be better after reading or listening to it!

Self Help books rehashed and badly read!

Dreadful! These guys would never make good actors with such dreadful audible reading skills.
Nothing original here and certainly nothing to learn. It's all been written a million times before. We all know self-help books don't work. The fact there is so many of them is testimony to that.
