Book Description

Do you feel stuck in your life? Are you searching for answers? Do you want to be happier and live a more fulfilling life?

I felt just like that for so many years. I had the nice house, the car, the decent job, but still felt miserable.

What was missing was everything that got me excited about life. It wasn’t what I was doing at the moment, but I didn’t know what it was either.

I kept waiting and hoping to find the answers for years, but it wasn't till I learned and applied one important principle that I began to turn my life around.

Anyone who is happy and successful in life follows this principle.

"Get a Life that Doesn't Suck" isn't a book that'll give you the whole plan you need to be happier. It'll give you that the first step you need.

It’ll be the foundation for the rest of your life.

4.0 out of 5 stars An impactful manifesto September 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read about Benny's iPhone app success story on Pat Flynn's Smart Passive Income blog, then I saw that he has a blog called Get Busy Living, which calls back to my favorite movie "The Shawshank Redemption." I was looking forward to his book!

I appreciated his personal story of how he got to his breaking point, then made it a turning point in his life.

The passages I highlighted in my Kindle app were about taking responsibility and making choices. I know these are key, but sometimes you need to be reminded about what you already know. "Life is too short to be unhappy when working." "If you've ever complained or blamed anyone else, you're not taking 100% of the responsibility." "The results you acheived came from the choices you did or didn't make."

Benny has written an impactful manifesto which has earned its place in my Kindle apps - I know you'll get value from it as well.

I really enjoyed the book. It was short simple and got right to the point. This book itself should be read daily every morning as a quick reminder of responsibility.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this book August 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I remember reading this book many months ago in an ebook format and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's inspiring, motivating and so REAL. There's no "fluff" in it and it really gets you thinking about getting the best out of your life. I highly recommend it if you need a short read to get your motivated to make a difference out there.

Check it out!

5.0 out of 5 stars That's what reading this was like. It was new August 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Take a look in the mirror and get struck by lightning. You're left with an x-ray vision of yourself. That's what reading this was like. It was new, but old and familiar. Taking 100% responsibility is scary. You think you are, until you read this bold book. It states the plain truth so clearly and simply. But just like the work is hard, the reading is not simple. Sometimes the truth is hard to take. But then there is real hope. When you look at the truth, are willing to face it openly and honestly there remains only hope. No more life that sucks. So read...and begin a better life with a better outlook. Highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just get on with it! February 12, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
It feels really refreshing to read this story that a lot of people could relate to. While reading I felt like Benny was talking straight to me, like he knew who I am. Totally recommending this book to anyone who is looking for a simple answer of how to get on with their life, without feeling sorry for themselves and to be able to make own "awaken" life changing decisions. I like his approach. Enjoy reading! I am in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple but Powerful Advice that cuts to the chase. August 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I, like so many people, have read volume after volume of personal growth and success books, wading through page after page of advice. This book pretty much sums up what all the others are trying to get across but it won't take you weeks to finish it. In fact, it's a quick and entertaining read.

Benny Hsu's little gem "Get a Life That Doesn't Suck" cuts to chase by telling you why success and happiness eludes most people and then how to turn all of it around with solid advice. This is one of those books I'll read over and over and it's nice that it sits on my Kindle, ready to offer some encouragement when I feel less than productive or happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A tiny, tiny investment ... December 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
... for a wake up call. For a reminder. For a clear start to take control and make a change. For hope. I used to think that no self help books/blogs could apply to me. But, after reading Benny Hsu's ebook I realise that it was only ever up to me. Now signed to his blog I am looking forward to opening and closing my own doors... without complaining!

5.0 out of 5 stars motivating August 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Very fast and easy to read, this book does a very good job at pointing out the problem that most likely lays at the core of many people's unhappy lives. Reading the book, many people will be able to identify themselves in it (I did).
Benny Hsu doesn't only tell us the problem, but does also a great job at pointing people in the right direction to start shaping their lives the way the want it.
Definitely a good and motivating book.
