What I like most about this book is that the author doesn't waste my time. There aren't chapters filled with bragging that many books with similar goals seem to think is required, perhaps to qualify the author.
Instead there are excellent ideas that I'd not heard before about how motivation actually works, as well as details about building frameworks and processes to achieve your goals. Well thought out examples clarified and "todo" lists called me to action and helped me realize that I'd been working toward the wrong things, and in the incorrect order.
Ray Porter's narration is perfect, as always. He reads with passion and his style fits the author's voice well. Recommended!

The first 1/3 of the book is interesting but the back half of the book is trite and formulaic. You can actually tell that the author seemed to have a good idea for a book and then when he expressed the idea, padded it out with fluff. He’s a prolific and professional writer, which is a double edged sword because in situations like this - the back 2/3 feels like something you’d find on Inc, BI or one of those listicle sites that are churned out by professional and prolific writers.
I hated the narration. Absolutely could not stand it. I have never given a poor rating to a narrator before but this just sounds like someone reading to play school children with lots of false emotion and over the top expressiveness. It actually detracts from the content.
I hate leaving negative reviews but this one had to be done. It’s an average book with narration that is so saccharine it comes off as amateurish.

I found this useful but could not finish as the narrator not my cup of tea.

starts off complaining about other people's work then explains other people's work almost exactly. for example he says smart goals are bad then spend the next chapter explaining smart goals, although not calling them smart.
nothing new here and not much about motivation. more about productivity of anything.

Not only debunking the BS, Jeff then gives constructive ways to understand where motivation really comes from and then practical approaches to breaking down your goals and getting them done. A very enjoyable read and one that will change your life.
