Format: Paperback
This book is in the tradition of inspirational reads from writers that include Dale Carnegie, Napoleon Hill and Stephen R. Covey. The difference on this occasion is that all of those pre-date the Internet, social media and digital marketing.

Niall writes with a fluency that verges on stream-of-consciousness. That native of the city he currently calls home, James Joyce, would be proud. He also, whether instinctively or otherwise, observes the first precept of Stephen King's "On Writing" (which contains all anyone needs to know about the art): there is not a passive sentence in the book - everything is totally up front and personal. All of this makes for a very good read.

Two chapters in "Get S*** Done", in particular, stand out. These are "It's all about selling" and "Playing ugly, winning ugly", although there are other sections that are of abounding interest for the very personal detail of the writer's life (to date) that come across.

Reading about the challenges he faced and the way he dealt with them make this reviewer recall the words of Winston Churchill at Harrow school when he is supposed to have said to the students, in 1941, when WWII was well underway, "We never, ever, ever give in". Niall also has excellent advice about the value of a high work rate, which is one of those things that can sound like a truism until one is faced with the need to live it.

There is only one part of the work with which I would disagree, and that is where he gives his views on education. Quite apart from gaining qualifications, and allowing for Niall's personal experience, there are many people who gain fulfilment just from the experience of attending school, college or university.

All told, "Get S*** Done" is well worth the purchase price.

It is a good book but considering that it is Niall's first book many things are redundant and some of the texts are not related to what he was talking about a paragraph before BUT his stories are good and he gives good advice, overall it was a good read.

I enjoyed reading this book and used it as a motivational tool. I like the honesty and straightforwardness. More than financial advices, we need real life stories to overcome fear, which is what stops us from achieving great things. The second one is laziness and lack of ambition. Thanks to the author for sharing his experience as an entrepreneur and wish him great success.

Niall (disclaimer: I'm an acquaintance and former client) shares his own experience, insights and some exotic anecdotes of success and failure in a very readable, practical and frank book. He's always been as good at walking the walk as talking the talk, so it's great to see this book come out as he promised.

Worth a read for some of the nuggets in there. IMO boils down to having a go, don't be afraid of failure and consistency in approach to life. Lot of self promotion though, stories about drink, drugs etc. suppose you have to make this type of stuff interesting...worth a read all the same.
