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.
In my opinion this book is not worth the read. It’s not thought provoking essays but simple lists (It reminds me of Pinterest posts). The numbered lists makes the read choppy and then I lose interest quickly. I do not recommend this book at all.
The quality of the book was wonderful and there weren’t any typos I noticed (some other sellers seem to have quite a few).
This book is awful, there's some chapter that are okay and a little bit motivational, but there's literally a chapter that tells you that you might not still be alive for your thirties, that you're not exceptional, and not smart enough to be anything you want in life. PLEASE NEVER GIFT THIS BOOK TO YOUNG ADULTS AND TEENAGERS. And most of all there's a lot of chapters about how if you're "procrastinating" you'll never succeed in life, it's like a book that represent everything that's wrong about our society these days, you need to WORK to feel important. If you ever feel like doing nothing there's something wrong with you and you must ALWAYS DO SOMETHING PRODUCTIVE. On her Instagram there's some beautiful quotes that are nice and reassuring about life and how everything will be okay so I thought I'd buy her first book, now I realize that I never should have, I lost 20€. This book is definitely not for people that want to feel okay about themselves. DON'T READ IF YOU'RE SEARCHING FOR COMFORT.
Everything in it just makes you question if you're good enough. It's like a list of facts that tells you you're not good enough, and if you're not like that you're not "on the right path". A really f***ed up book.
I got this book cause it seemed like a good read. I am a couple of essays in. I think the names really hook you of each essay, but at least the first 5 essays that I have read are mostly in lists (and skimming through the pages, most are), and seem to keep say the same message over and over again. This book won't change the way you think, cause the other doesn't change the message. To sum up the message and save you the money and 400 pages of reading, break your routine and don't be afraid of things that scare you - it means you care. Also, take charge of the way you feel.
I bought the book because the title seemed compelling. The title is a complete exaggeration because the rather short chapters are mostly lists of commonplace statements and lack quality and depth to qualify as essays. The high ranking the book receives and the reason why it became a bestseller is probably because there is nothing controversial in it. It wants to make you feel better about your life, jumping randomly between topics, but there is nothing thought provoking or to learn from. Save the money and go to the movies instead.
