The Motivation Hoax offers sense in place of the sparkling nonsense that permeates the inspiration industry. It exposes the unrealistic clichés and misleading mantras that frequently just make you feel bad, replacing them with evidence-based insights that are no less motivating but are credible, reliable and, most importantly, scientifically tested.
A reality check like no other, The Motivation Hoax is among the most refreshing, liberating and surprisingly comforting books you'll listen to this year.

Gently punctures inflated motivational truisms
A timely and thought provoking look at the kind of motivational truisms that have come to be too readily inflicted on workers in large multinational corporations. Avoiding the trap of trashing the material to be controversial and instead offering adjustments and valuable insights, James has produced a very engaging book that adds value. James reading of the book is very laid back, this has the advantage of making the book suitable to listening at higher speeds.

The most nonsensical rubbish I've ever heard.
The writer excels at taking quotes from historical figures entirely out of context and is simply wonderful at stating the obvious. Combining this with dreadful narration takes a talent most will hope never to possess. Save your money and time.
