However, I was at the bookstore again and had some time to kill so I took a second look. I read the first few pages and I was drawn in to his words. I recommend you read the Intro the next time you're in the bookstore to see if it's something you'd be remotely interested in.
I don't know, he just seemed to have a lot in common with the way I think and that's what piqued my curiosity. I really think to enjoy this book you need to have tried to learn something foreign in your life and really embraced it, not giving up no matter how hard it was. I think too many people take the "safe way" out in life and watch from the distance and comment on it. To those people, this book might be mildly interesting.
But Laird is no ordinary guy. He's done some insane things (if you don't believe it, just flip to the page that details all of his injuries). And although the book is an easy read, anyone who has faced similar (I use that term loosely) fears, challenges, or obstacles just gets it. You see how right on he is with his words.
When you get to step inside the mind of a man who has pushed the boundaries of what is humanly possible and in turn created new ways to look at it, you get a rare glimpse that few people have ever experienced.
What's funny is this book is mass published and can be purchased by anyone but I truly believe he poured his heart into this book and that's why I find this book so special.
My wife and I joke that he is a "life coach" just because he seems to cover so many topics and has something interesting to say about each.
I just think his book is fun. It makes me appreciate life and the environment I'm in. And by the way, his nutrition advice is really helpful. I feel much better throughout the day and I've slimmed down quite a bit too. I've even started doing yoga which I never thought I would do and am in such a better mood before I go to work now (which my co-workers appreciate).
Having spent over 20 years as a corporate executive, finally at the CEO level, I stepped back (some migh say dropped out) and took a look at what is important to ME. Larid's book validates doing that and gaining focus on my interest and desires as well as pushing to achieve those goals I had put off for years. Goals like learning how to ride the Pipeline, getting back in the middle of an old-boys scrum and racing crits once again are things that I must do NOW in order to not get down the road and wish, with regret, that I'd done them after achieving my business goals. In other words, this book validates my decision to take my life back, get out of the office, give up the power, breath the air and live again.
I strongly recommend this book to anyone who has aspirations of taking anything to the next level; Anyone who has a goal and is trying to figure out how to achieve it or is constantly making excuses for not achieving a goal even though it is achievable - with a little (or a lot) of work. Getting the Mind, Body and Soul to work in harmony is equivalent to getting a orchstra to sound fabulous, only on a very personal level. Personal Satisfaction is achieved, not handed to anyone. Laird's book guides one throught the process of taking the right steps, developing the right attitude and not waivering in achieving Personal Satisfaction.
I strong recommend this book to the youngest of readers as well as those seasoned old dogs like me as well as everyone in between. Live life to the fullest, follow the guidance provided in the book and you will Succeed at the goals you set for yourself. If you focus and push, there will be no excuses for failure!
