What did you love best about The Art of Extraordinary Confidence?
The narrator is easily likable and fun to listen to.
What does Dr. Aziz Gazipura bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Meeting someone new that seems to understand exactly what you are going through.
What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?
That we need to worry about impressing and pleasing everyone. We are powerful and shouldn't think less of ourselves, if we speak our minds and go for what we want we won't die or hurt anyone else in the process.
Any additional comments?
Some of the other reviews claim he curses too much, this is simply not true. He does use some curse words here and there but it's casual and expressive to the mood. I think he does a great job in this book and you will get more than your moneys worth. I enjoyed listening to his story, the story of other lives he mentioned and all of the clear great content/advice of the book. I love it and will listen to it again soon!

I wish i had read this book when i was younger. Dr Aziz debunks some of the most toxic and common misconception we hold about social behaviours and communication. The book is simple to understand full of examples and comparisons. The narration is enjoyably smooth and the tone is relaxed and empathetic as you feel in a real conversation with a friend. The best self help book i ever listened.

If you could sum up The Art of Extraordinary Confidence in three words, what would they be?
Helpful, Likeable, Realistic
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Art of Extraordinary Confidence?
Whenever the author dispels other "Self Help" BS, and is just realistic. e.g. Other self-help says, "Just perceive the situation in a different way, just perceive/think the problems away" but he says We're not robots... it probably is really scary... embrace the awkward, painful, accept it. etc. I like how one of his approaches to confidence comes from recognising one's humanity, and everyone else's humanity.
Which character – as performed by Dr. Aziz Gazipura – was your favourite?
He jokes around a bit. He's just being himself, and confidently amuses himself. Good example.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
He's really likeable guy. His voice sounds soothing, comfortable, natural. Pleasant to listen to; Unlike those other weird, stilted readings that sound really fake. Great content. Humorous, not dry and dull to listen to. Even though he's a psychologist, he doesn't have to go into all the technical brain science which I'm tired of hearing from other self help books (almost all of them somehow end up talking about the Amygdala, Pre-Frontal Cortex, the Kids in the Cookie/Marsh-Mellow Test) He's practical. Even though he's a psychologist that helps people to understand their problems, he knows that understanding the problem alone doesn't help your improve. Unlike other motivational books writers whose approach is just pumping you up with positivity, Aziz's approach is more enduring and practical and real.
