Publisher's Summary

In addition to presenting Sean Stephenson's unbelievable life story, Get Off Your "But" offers anyone who needs to conquer fears and insecurities a hands-on guide for overcoming the forces of negativity and self-sabotage. Sean - a successful psychotherapist - shows what it takes to overcome the big bumps in the road, eliminate excuses, end insecurities, and ultimately stand up for happiness and success in life. As Sean explains, anyone can fall victim to the "Buts":

"But" Excuses (BUT there's no time...)Get Off Your "But" offers a practical guide for putting fear behind you and building the inner resources to become self-confident at work and at home. It's time to get off your "but" and start leading the life you dream.

Highly Recommended -- Delivers as Promised

There are those books that you listen to once, forget about, and move on. There are other books -- a much rarer find -- that you look forward to listening to again and again. This is one of those audiobooks that I look forward to listening to many times over for years to come.

I am always on the lookout for information/techniques to improve my effectiveness in both my professional and my personal life. This audiobook very delivers on all counts.

What separates this book from others in the genre is the very well thought out structure of the material, the care that he has taken in choosing supporting examples, the very specific tools provided, and the narration itself. Each topic is clearly broken down, with several concrete examples to drive the point home. Then, Sean provides very specific methods/tools to deal with each challenge being discussed. This is a no nonsense audiobook that respects the listener's time -- it is certainly not filled with fluff and/or shameless self-promotion.

Regarding the narration, I found it to be excellent. The fact that Sean Stephenson decided to narrate the book himself adds a level of authenticity and realism that otherwise would not have been possible, in my opinion. I found Mr. Stephenson's narration skills to be one of the highlights of this work. I hope he writes many more books in the future, and narrates each one.

I will be purchasing this book for friends and family. It has my highest recommendation.

Excellent text on removing excuses in life

I've just finished listening to this well-written and motivating text. The author, with whom I'm familiar with already from his public speaking and appearances related to M/F relationships, presents stories from life and real practical methods to get off one's "but", i.e. to become proactive in life and remove excuses. It's a fast and good listen and I recommend it.
Regarding the complaints of the other reviewer "David" who complains about the author's voice in the audio, please ignore it. Sean Stephenson was born with brittle bones syndrome and hence has a physique, and hence vocal apparatus, that's different than the rest of us. This is by no means a hinderance in understanding the narration, which is clear. To the contrary, one of the points of the book is that even with his handicap, the author's attitude has allowed him to achieve things that most people cannot due to their self-limitations, and hearing the author's actual voice helps make the point. And what's "egocentric" about an author narrating his OWN BOOK?!
