For someone who has dealt with a lot of negativity in their life and lots of ups and downs, breaking out of that mindset has always been a little difficult. I never respond well to coddling or soft truths and this book is not that which is perfect for anyone to really get their life on track and take a good long look in the mirror. I have read a lot of books similar to Mike's but none have quite got me out of that place so I'm stoked I finally found a writer/speaker that can do that for me. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a wake-up call.
