Gorilla Mindset is an entire system that, when coupled with specific mindset shifts and habits, will change the way you think, feel and live your life.
Applying Gorilla Mindset to your life (make no mistake, this is an audiobook you must apply) will improve your health and fitness, lead to more money and career advancement, and help you have deeper, more meaningful relationships (or more casual ones; it's your choice).
Your thinking will become clear. You will have more focus. You will know exactly what steps to take to change your life.
More importantly, you will be able to troubleshoot your own life - what psychologists call auto-regulate - when something goes wrong.
For the first time ever, there is a complete system for you to live by, and more importantly, to improve and adapt to your needs. Some chapters will revolutionize how you live your life where as others might not apply to you at all.
Gorilla Mindset is not an audiobook of theory. These are all practical steps - mindset shifts you take or habits you form.
There are chapters on routine, self-talk, frame, focus, state/mood, mindfulness, and body language. Each chapter contains techniques, mindset shifts, and habits that can be applied to your life.
Yet each chapter forms part of an entire system to apply to your life. The chapters all feed off of and add to one another.
For example, improving your self-talk will improve your state or mood. How you frame challenges in your life is also a matter of the language - or self-talk - you use.
Getting in the moment improves your self-talk just as your self-talk helps you get into the moment.
At the end of Gorilla Mindset you'll tie every concept together to live the life others don't even dare dream of.

Essentials of mindset & lifestyle in one book
I first found Mike through his flagship blog, Danger and Play, around a year ago. I got some great information from the blog (and his podcast) on TRT, lifting and general lifestyle advice. I've used many books and courses over the years for mindset & self-improvement, so I was eager to see Mike's approach to packaging all of this stuff into his own program.
Much of the information in Gorilla Mindset was familiar to me; the power of focus & state control, affirmations, the mental-physical connection, importance of morning routines, etc. This stuff is tried and true, the foundations of any good self-improvement program. As a lawyer working in financial services, I can also personally attest to the quality of his recommendations on savings and investment.
Mike's value-added here is that he's distilled massive volumes of information into his own concise program that gives you the best information and the essentials needed to master your mindset and take control of your life. He gives credit to others where it is due, but he's also provided top-notch info that was totally new to me. In particular, his recommendations on supplements and the interview with the anti-aging doctor, Dr. Brett Osborn, were totally new to me. I've already begun implementing some of those recommendations.
Mike delivers all of this great information in his own voice, which is one of my top criteria for an audiobook. There's no substitute for hearing the words straight from the author's mouth. He gives it to you straight, no BS, but he doesn't try to puff himself up as a superhuman badass that you'll never be able to match. He's relatable and based, which helps convey the message that anyone can succeed by putting this stuff into practice.
My one critique is mainly stylistic. I like the whole 'Gorilla' branding thing, but I feel like that could've been integrated more into the substance of the book. I want to be a freakin' Gorilla, Mike.
All in all, great purchase that I would recommend to any man. Especially if this is your first foray into taking control of your mindset and lifestyle.
Not really new info and poorly performed
I liked that Mike set out to write the book first off. Many people want to do this type of thing yet never really get around to it. So, congrats to Mike for getting it done. Much of the content is rehashed self-help concepts packaged in a macho, in your face delivery. It would probably would have been pretty good except for the poor audio quality and the obvious slip ups in pronunciation. I find it hard to believe that these mistakes were not edited out. I will still follow Mike's blog called "Danger and Play" because he does have some very interesting insights. But, this book sounded like a low-budget first effort.
