To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
There is no real way to articulate how life-changing a head-injury is, it is like trying to explain the intricacies of, and why human fingerprints are all different, and in uniqueness, we are not unique. That is a long-story-short hahaha
After listening to Jay Shetty talking with Dave Aspery on Bulletproof Radio, well I bought it on my kindle while listening. Jay - who has written so beautifully and eloquently, like his speech - has provided a calming space while navigating my hectic head-injured life. I am always on the lookout for techniques to ease the burden of my experience and gain more energy. I will be recommending Jay Shetty's book to everyone.
Love Jay Shetty , I listen to their podcast and adore it so inspiring and helpful ! Love the book so easy to read and lots of great tools I hope every one reads it, it's the true shift humanity needs. Great work jay !
have to say it: self-growth books were not for me. If you look at my Goodreads profile you will see what I mean... from dark books to heavy alien fantasy, that's my mojo. However, when a very dear friend of mine talked to me about "this book that is so incredible" I had to check it out, and oh boy what a surprise I got. Honestly, Jay's perspective of life has deeply resonated within me. I have been doing life couch sessions for the past six months and this book is just the cherry on top to all the things I have been working in myself. I LOVE how Jay put "homework" just as you keep listening to because this really makes sure you practice in yourself. I have not finished reading it but I have loved it so much that I just could not wait to review it.
I think I am now hooked into self-growth books, who would have thought!!! haha #goal #journey #trust #focus #inspirational #motivational #inspire #motivation #inspiration #quotes #motivationalquotes #quote #quotestoliveby #quotestagram #love #kindness #hapiness #success #positivity #positivevibesonly #positivevibes #dailyquote #dailyquotes #dailyinspiration #dailymotivation #money #entrepreneur #quoteoftheday #jayshetty
I stumbled on to Jay Shetty a few months back out of pure luck and it could not have happened at a better time. Spending time listening to some podcasts and interviews I realised that he is one of the greatest inspirations around today. When I saw he was releasing a book I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it and neither could my wife. I can honestly say this will remain in my collection for the rest of my life and I will revisit it regularly. The writing style is like Jay is there next to you and it flows so effortlessly. There is so much good information and advice for all peoples of all ages and backgrounds. This will no doubt become one of the great classics.
Just finished listening to his book audio from Audible. What a amazing book to listen. Collection of very interesting and valuable thoughts. Great mixture of Indian spirituality with western self-help. This book will inspire you to live very efficient but simple life. This book also teaches you how to become happy in life and models you in success. Highly recommended.
First time ever writing a review. I’ve purchased the audio book and I LOVE IT. I’m Orthodox but it doesn’t matter bc this is how everyone should be thinking regardless of religion. No better time to better yourself then during a pandemic so when we come out of it, we are stronger. I’m passing this onto my daughters. I’m listening, highlighting and writing down my favourite bits of the book. Might not be for everyone but this book found me!
Actual rating: 4. But I'm giving this book 5, it's because this' Jay's first book. Haven't finished reading. It's basically my first impression. Most likely this will be my final impression as well!
Who should buy this book? Anybody with interest in reading. If you're capable of reading a book within a month then you could buy!
Who shouldn't buy this book? 1. This book is not for someone who wants a book as an aid to overcome fear, depression, loneliness, addition, negative thoughts, relationship struggles... 2. Introduction to all the problems under the sky or maybe above the sky are written in this book... 3. Those who already practice mindfulness, meditation, yoga might not find much stuff in this book...
Things that will be interesting... 1. You might think that maybe Jay is the wisest person in the universe. 2. It's because he didn't dilute the subject matter. But he has made the content more relatable to 2020.
Annoying things... 1. Sometimes you might find Jay like a kid praising teacher to get extra marks or get some chocolates. 2. Don't get me wrong... Without fail he has written few words about people who has acknowledged his book! 3. Sometimes you might get a feel like, I should become famous within 5 years & Jay will write about me 4. You'll definitely find stuff you might not want to take from a book.
Do you want to become rich or make him rich... 1. It's obvious, like in almost all the books, you'll find some marketing stuff at the end of the book. 2. There's nothing wrong in that stuff but again are you ready to spend money to listen to him and to learn from him? 3. If you read some other self help book or teachings of the people that this book relies on; you'll notice that you're drawn towards meditation, positive thinking, changing lifestyle... 4. Unfortunately this book has the tendency to draw readers more towards Jay rather than meditation or mindfulness... 5. It's like a fitness trainer inviting you to gym.. but rather than guiding you to exercise and get fit, the trainer is more interested in selling supplements!
Still if you're reading this review... 1. Go ahead and grab a copy of this book. 2. Suppose, if you're surrounded by people who give you advice, & you don't know how they became instant genius, chances are they might have read something from this book or anything from similar books 3. A must read for readers who wants to know what's the current trend in the self help category...
Simple advice... 1. I followed few rules which I have broken when I bought this book.. 2. Here's the rule: When it comes to self help, inspiration or mindfulness buy the book written by the person who's an expert in that field, maybe a doctor, or phycologist, or someone who's known for their specific talent like music, etc... 3. Another rule of thumb... It's better to buy self help book written by someone who's already dead or someone who's about to die. It's because you have their whole life before you before buying their books!
I think this is my first review.... Why I'm reviewing this book? Honestly I'm disappointed. But still it's not a bad book and it's not a great book. It's definitely not as advertised! If you're ready to follow Jay then you can buy this book and do whatever he suggests in the book.
Closing thoughts... Once you start reading this book you'll get a feel like maybe you're eating up huge variety of foods & you couldn't identify what you are tasting! Reading this book is like getting a taste of all the Indian food + Chinese food + Western food + some food from sky!
Finally... While reading this book be ready to get interrupted by Jay himself through some social media!
Still why I bought this book... 1. I'm surrounded by people who can speak almost about anything after watching a movie or a 5 minute video... I'm sure they gonna quote from this book! 2. I like how Jay sold so much copies of this book! Most likely he has planned everything ahead while releasing his first video!
Finally reason for my fictional name... 1. I just don't want people to get caught up in something popular & lose interest in their pursuit of becoming more mindful, positive, financially well, etc! 2. Actual reason for this name... Just search in your favourite search engine, "what was the first program written in C by it's founders?" 3. Yup, I like programming that's why I have created this fictional name. 4. Guys if you're really fed up with life, don't give up. Start learning a programming language. Just print hello world...
Why everyone should print hello world... 1. Hello world is a way of checking if the IDE or code editor is installed correctly in the computer. 2. As you make more hello world programs, you'll either stick with 1 programming language or you'll develop interest to learn more programming languages 3. You'll start to understand how computer behaves and understands everything as 0s and 1s...
Finally... 1. Is this really a book review? 2. Don't you feel sleepy or annoying? 3. This' how you might feel like while reading this book. 4. If you're an avid reader and want to read something that will have an lasting impact on your life, please don't start with this book! 5. Then what to buy since you've some amount of money to buy a book: Maybe you could buy a book written by a real monk! 6. Either agree or disagree: Basic always remains the same. You might see changes in the format or in the way of presentation. 7. If you've read the previous statement and agreed you will not invest so much on self help books. You might prefer audio books or ebooks as they're relatively cheap & don't take up space in your bookshelf!
I don't know how to say You Thanks,😍😍😍 I am so grateful to God for sending you in my life. This world really needs people like you who didn't keep the real wisdom with themselves but shared with this world instead to make this world a better place. I am happy to meet a monk😄😂😋. I really want to think like a Monk. I started reading this book. I just can't express gratitude in words. Don't listen to naysayers whoever wrote negative comments. They can't happy when people are becoming successful by putting efforts to make this world a better place. If anyone wants to live their true lives and want to connect to their true selves and make a difference in the world. Don't even think. Just buy this book. This is the right time.

Learning more and more, every time I pick up the book and read it. I eagerly have my pen and note pad ready for the 'Try This' pieces.
It's a joyful, soul nurturing experience. You don't want to move to the next section/chapter, as you get so much clarity and have many aahaa moment's. I just keep rereading the section to understand it more and more. Listening to Jay Shetty podcasts too now and feel the same when I hear the stories and teachings. Just food for your soul. Grateful:)
