This book and Gary John Bishop's narration are so Fu*king phenomenal I think He may have ruined other audio books for me for life. Hey, thanks, Gary John Bishop!
His accent, his voice, his intonation was perfect for this type of book. This man needs to be reading books for us all day, EVERYDAY.
His no bullshit, I'm not here to talk about myself all fu*kin day so let's get to it-ness, is a breath of fresh air. The combination of the writing and the story telling is just the right mixture of sweet and salty that doesn't get boring.
Mr. Bishop feels a like an old friend, a long overdue, dearly missed welcome house guest who happens to be great company and just the kick in the ass that the doctor ordered. He's not falling for your namby- pamby, boo- hooing, it's not my fault, blah blah blah excuses. He's way ahead of you. Spoken with a true sincerity , not preachy, but more like he's lived it, and if he didn't experience it first hand, he's heard the same stories with the same scenario's enough times to know that it's universally human and if you just listen he'll help you un-cluster fu*k the mess in your mind, and leave you with a simplified process and a cognitive clarity that brings back memories of the days when you WERE actually who you wanted to be (or still had the energy to try and optimism to believe it was possible), When you were hungry for life and just wanted more. Before all that real life shit happened like bills, and love and failures that mommy and daddy were no longer kissing better. Before you realized that there were a million ways to get everything wrong and no way to get everything right and decided to dull your personality into the equivalent of a house plant.
Anyway, you get it.
I'll listen to it several more times.
Good work Mr. Bishop. If you were here I'd buy you beer, actually I'd buy you a freakin keg, as long as you just keep talking.
BUY THIS BOOK. THE AUDIO BOOK. I'M SERIOUS. DO IT.
Grammar Police: I know, I know... I wrote it just as I would speak it. I'm not a professional reviewer. I'm not trying to get a job with Amazon or Audible and frankly I don't care. I don't make a habit of writing reviews. When I do, make it a habit, maybe, I'll clean up my act but meanwhile, if you don't like it, you can do the opposite of this book title. Fair enough?

A very quick read and quite a good kick in the ass. Motivation and wisdom from the ages. Could easily read bits over and over, even just to remind yourself to stop reading and start doing.
