Another example is Rubin Carter: the author compresses his story to the point where it seems like he was a „one man army“ and got out of prison by reading books and sheer will power. Reading more into the story, he had massiv support and even Bob Dylan contributed a song for him which brought his case to the national attention.
Additionally, these stories and the explanations of the author introduce conflicting values, for example: in one chapter about being aggressive and push forward, the author states:
„But let’s ask an honest question: Could you be doing more? You probably could - there’s always more. At minimum, you could be trying harder“
… which is contradicted later with …
„There’s no need to sweat this or feel rushed.“
Finally, there is very little written about failure. There is a small chapter which is called „prepare for none of it to work“ and some sentences about failure are sprinkled across the chapters. The stories does not support failure, because each anecdotal story at the end „wins“ or at least the outcome is „be perseverant and you will reach your goal“. There is even the quote in the book „It’s okay to be discouraged. It’s not okay to quit.“
At the end of the book I had the feeling, that scam companies like Theranos where created with this mindset: it can be done, know you enemies, use their flanks, use their weaknesses, be aggressive, work harder, do the right thing at the right time (which you defined for yourself), don’t accept a no, push through it … and most important: never quit.
If you still reading this review, I would like to recommend you The Art and Power of Acceptance: Your Guide to Inner Peace . It has an identical topic (dealing with obstacles in life) but what I like about it:
- It gives you a framework
- It also work with anecdotal stories, but the stories are there to support and learn the framework
- The author offers instructions like breathing exercises to support the framework
- For me personally the stories where more relatable and „down to earth“
- The author does not shy away from failure
-I used to be the type of guy who had a million different opinions on subjects. Now, I've traded useless opinions for this mindset. Now I have become an extremely Objective person, by taking this philosophy to heart.
-That is all you need to know. Read the preview. Get it.
