My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book took me ten years to finish. I let my anger win and set it aside, forgot its lessons, and only re-opened it again recently. I was finally ready to learn. If you suffer from shyness, rage, fear, or lack confidence… it is a fine toolbox to repair the damage done. Every chapter held an epiphany for me. It helped me dig up the roots of my rage, and overcome shyness. And it doesn’t let you off the hook for your behavior. The first lesson is accepting responsibility. A great read, and no bullshit included.
I started back on page one as soon as I finished. Some of us need to stay back a grade and keep learning these lessons. I wouldn’t call this a self-help book. It’s a memoir of an angry, bullied young man who overcame his rage and self-loathing to become a success, and he passes his lessons on to you.
