Publisher's Summary

When a career-ending injury left elite athlete and professional football player Lewis Howes out of work and living on his sister's couch, he decided he needed to make a change for the better. He started by reaching out to people he admired, searching for mentors, and applying his past coaches' advice from sports to life off the field. Lewis did more than bounce back: He built a multimillion-dollar online business and is now a sought-after business coach, speaker, and podcast host.
In the New York Times best seller The School of Greatness, Howes shares the essential tips and habits he gathered in interviewing "the greats" on his wildly popular podcast of the same name. In discussion with people like Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson and Pencils of Promise CEO Adam Braun, Howes figured out that greatness is unearthed and cultivated from within. The masters of greatness are not successful because they got lucky or are innately more talented but because they applied specific habits and tools to embrace and overcome adversity in their lives.
A framework for personal development, The School of Greatness gives you the tools, knowledge, and actionable resources you need to reach your potential. Howes anchors each chapter with a specific lesson he culled from his greatness "professors" and his own experiences to teach you how to create a vision, develop hustle, and use dedication, mindfulness, joy, and love to reach goals. His lessons and practical exercises prove that anyone is capable of achieving success and that we can all strive for greatness in our everyday lives.

Buy the book, not the audiobook.

Any additional comments?

I love the podcast, and this is a great book. I was really excited when the audiobook came out and exchanged the ebook for it. I'm not sure what happened, but Lewis' narration is bad. Really, really bad. Unless the audiobook is redone, buy the book instead.

ego much?

He is not a narrator. Listening to this was torture. He should have spent some of his money on a good voice actor. This book had some good points, nothing you wont find on others. I started fast forwarding after listening to how great he is for the hundredth time. This was written to gain subscribers for his newsletters. Go get anything by Brian Tracy or Ziglar instead.

Just because you wrote it...

You shouldn't necessarily read it!
Love Lewes and his podcast, but the man can NOT read a manuscript.
Listened to a painful hour then gave up.
Sentences split in half, he doesn't realise when he's doing "voices" and emphasis in the wrong places.
I'd like to know if the content is great, what I struggled through seemed good, but my anger at such poor reading nearly made me crash the car.
Please, record this with a professional artist, you just do the foreword and stick to the podcast.

Loved that it was read by the author. Have listened to it twice, and will listen many times more.
