Publisher's Summary

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.

Basically 4 hours of motivational posters

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Listeners who enjoy rah-rah-go-me! type motivational books might enjoy this IF they aren't really looking for anything new. Information isn't really presented in the typical "let me help you be the best you," but more like "do this stuff like I did, and maybe you can be as awesome as me."


Has Gorilla Mindset turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, I'll always be interested in books about being your best self.


What didn’t you like about Mike Cernovich’s performance?

Sounds like a podcast. There seemed to be a lot of adlibs, asides, and he corrected himself multiple times. If I pay for an audiobook, I'm doing it on the assumption that it will sound professionally produced, not like the narrator hit record and read the book start to finish and hit stop and done.


What character would you cut from Gorilla Mindset?

There aren't really characters, but I would cut a lot of the redundant text. The author rewords and repackages the same info over and over and over. And all the "you're gonna wanna," "most people,"a lotta people," drove me crazy. It's like "most people do this, but I do this. You're gonna wanna be like me, not those people."


Any additional comments?

If you've read the cheesy motivational posters hanging in offices and classrooms, you've heard the advice in this book. Nothing new here. If you are interested having that advice poorly read to you by an author who is clearly his own biggest fan, get at this book immediately.

Meh...

Cons: I feel like maybe it's wrong to down-talk a self help motivational book for some reason, Idky but I do. However, I wish someone had written a review that told me this book I just a very typical motivational self help book, in that it basically just tells you stuff that's common sense in my opinion. "If you want to live good, make more money." "Visualize your goals." I mean c'mon Mike. Also, maybe have someone else read it, someone who doesn't have a lisp and can a low down enough to pronounce complete words.
On the pro side: I like the idea of certain brain exercises immediately upon waking up, hadn't heard those before.
