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.
I'm not sure whether this book was a mistake, or one of the best books I've read. On the one hand, it does not have a main idea or contention that's backed up by several chapters of detailed discussion, and instead feels like a collection of short blog-posts regurgitating basic self-help advice (that I've mostly heard of) – which, in my opinion, does not constitute a proper book. However, I feel as though the author is nudging my life towards a positive direction each time I turn its pages, and that I tend to be happier and more mindful on the days where I read this book.
I suppose I've just listed the (perhaps obvious) pros and cons of a book titled with "101 Essays..." My main doubt is that this book, like many ordinary self-help books, have given me doses of spiritual highs without leaving considerable lasting impacts on my life. I guess I'll have to wait and see. Just after finishing though, my impression is that this book packs a large quantity of self-help advice, but perhaps wasn't enough overall for me to justify its price.
This book will challenge you in the most positive way. You will need to reread this numerous times if you don’t understand parts of it and this is the whole point to change the way you think! Buy both the ebook and audiobook. The narration of the audio will keep you engaged. The ebook/book is your reference book. JUST BUY IT and stop procrastinating.
If you're stuck in a rut, if you're confused, perhaps frustrated with how you're life is heading, then it could all come down to how you think. The well-written essays in this excellent read provides guidance on this and other little gems. Wel worth the purchase!
