I've been going through a hard time in my life. I've listened to almost every success and wealth creation book and podcast, set out and struck out on 3 different businesses over the past 12 years, losing a lot of money and hit a point in my life where I want to give up. Resign to be ordinary like many people before me and not shoot for something great. In the midst of this I stumbled on this book the day it was released. That moment happened to be one of my lowest points and I was looking for some sort of inspiration to keep going. That's what this book brought to me. I'm a big fan of Bear Grylls, and his work on man vs. wild. Simply who the author was got me to take a chance on the book in a genre I felt burnt out in. While I can say there are a lot of books out there that cover the same content, it's his perspective that real appealed. The way he backs up the content with his stories and experiences helps bring life to what seemed like old hat concepts to me. In the end the greatest take ways for me are the need to be more cheerful in my life, seek to strive towards something I love doing and to refocus on each individual steps and break down bigger goals into smaller pieces no matter if you are climbing a mountain, or a mountain of debt. This book may not be for everyone but it certainly felt like it was meant for me. Hope is a powerful thing and more then anything else that's what I got from this book. The challenges life brought to me in the two weeks following reading this book proved to be more difficult then I ever thought two weeks could be but had I not read this book I don't think I could have hung in there through it all. I am grateful to Bear to share his story and hope someday I can meet him in person to tell him that. Until then this review will have to do. I highly recommend it to anyone struggling to figure out how to keep moving forward in life when you feel like the odds are against you.

A common sense guide to life. A good read and straight to the point. Narrator was easy to listen to.
