I am listening to the audible version of this book as I write this. Contrary to some other reviews, I find the boring, blah...whatever you want to call it. But, I have been pretty unmotivated for a while since a breakup from a long relationship. I've listened to so many audible books with people who sounded like they were SO upbeat...but it sounded false to me. I didn't want someone on the other end to try and inspire me with all the "hype", excited sounding voice.....and so on. I'm already feeling that this audible book IS going to motivate me...or I should say, help ME to motivate MYSELF. It's helping me see I don't need these "get over your breakup" books; I just need to get motivated to begin a new future and the only one who can do that is ME. One thing among many that has helped me see some things that are holding me back is "turn off the TV"...I've been "hiding" in mindless TV for a while now...it's NOT going to be turned on today. I've already been motivated by several suggestions and I have not even finished listening to this book. I love it that he is not "acting" excited, sounding so "upbeat" that it makes me want to stop listening before I finish...he's just speaks in a matter-of-fact sort of way and I find it very easy to listen and take his suggestions to heart. I also love the fact that he doesn't have any psychological "babble" inserted, no history of how psychologists have discovered WHY I'm not motivated. I didn't want to hear any of that...I've heard it all before and I just don't care. I just wanted suggestions...and that's what he gives....#1 through #100 and he explains in a short manner ways to put that suggestion into action. I'm going to be listening to this one over and over and over and....well, you get the idea. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants WAYS to get motivated without any mindless psychobabble.

Ironically, the book's author and narrator could've used a hell of a lot more motivation and expression during his reading of this book. That said, the material is solid, concise, and positive.
