To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not 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.
This is one of those formula books by publishers to try to make it a good/best seller. Book is about the usual tips in life (be positive, don't give up, we need other people, etc.). It's a small book, but even so you have to read through the author's military story telling fluff to get to the simple point of each chapter. For me I didn't find the book interesting in the way the points were presented, I found myself flipping to the end of each chapter to read the tip. There are other more revealing and helpful books on positive living, in my opinion.
There’s too much emphasis given to the fact this guy used to be in the army or military or whatever. Same thing right? Anyway, his first name seems to be Admiral. Never heard of such a name. But in all seriousness, this dude made his first name admiral bcc he’s just that macho! He has a wife named Georgeann, and the title of the book is make your bed. Why? Well if the first task is completed it’ll be easier to do the second. Mr Dr Sir Admiral here didn’t have to write a whole book for that. Unfortunately we’ve made this man rich even though he took orders all his life. Oh well. I say don’t read it.
Honestly, I was expecting more than someone always talking about just himself. Bring military myself I understand drawing on those experiences but you can not go ONE page without him patting himself on the back. One of the worst “self improvement” books I’ve ever read. The regular person won’t relate to anything in this book. I found it lacking and a complete waste of time and money.
I got this book thinking I will learn some new strategies and life-hacks to improve what I am already doing however I found all the ideas to be very simple and basic that you can find on many other blogs and website. There was really nothing new or informative.
Disappointed in this book. His story is inspiring but this book was not. I had just come off of finishing The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, and was hoping this book would be equally insightful. I found myself skimming through pages as there was a lot of fluff and I found many of the chapters to have lots of cheesy/useless points (ex. Opening quote from ch. 3 “if you want to change the world.. measure a person by the size of their heart). Didn’t find it helpful and was disappointed in the purchase
