The world is not perfect, though, and it seems Matthew can help with that, too! What is your path in life? How do you get there? Mr. Walker gives you 5 ways to make the most of your journey.
This is not a book about being a daredevil or living recklessly on the edge. It's not even about rock climbing.
Please... read the book (easy read), take his advice (no tricks here), and experience the world like it was meant to be. I cannot imagine any aspect of your life that would not benefit from his profound interpretations.
Thanks again, Mr. Walker!
Easy to read
I found that this book offers sound advice and a step-by-step plan that can be applied by anyone to help jump-start their life.
If you feel like your life isn't exactly what you want it to be or if you have a dream that you have put aside for "the future" then you need to read what Matthew Walker has to say. He uses practical and real examples in language we can all understand. And he is very encouraging. You CAN achieve your goals! He gives you exercises that can help you get more out of life.
It certainly helped me to know that he has taken his own advice and that he has based his book on a tested process that he has used in the past and one that he continues to use in his company's activities.
Fast forward to my life now, I'm 30 and am a full time teacher wanting to go back for another Masters in Neuroscience. Reading this book inspired me to look past the hefty debt I would accrue in returning to school, and focus on what I wanted to do. I feel so much more at ease with my choice and my new adventure ahead! I am so glad I picked up this book!
I met Matt through twitter and went on one of his Inner Passage rock climbing expeditions. It was a life altering experience. I developed an even more open, receptive attitude toward my anxiety. This occurred while bagging some multi-pitch peaks and being quite fearful of heights on the rock face. Matt was an amazing guide and his encouragement and attitude emanate through the pages of his book.
Upon reading this book, I was humbled to discover that he used our conversations in the book. All this being said, I told Matt that I never endorse books until I read and evaluate them. Thus, you will not find my endorsement anywhere inside or outside of the book.
Having just finished this brief treatise, I can confidently claim that this book is fantastic. If you are thinking about purchasing this book, you might read the table of contents and decide against it. After all, there are tons of books about great companionship, accomplishment, and distress tolerance. This would be a mistake as Matt's gift is tying these individual elements together into a coherent framework for how people can live better. His writing style is smooth, so expect to breeze through chapters (in a good way). His stories are poignant, so expect to feel motivated. His writing exercises are poignant, so if you decide to do them, expect to learn a bit more about yourself in terms of that challenging gap between the present and ideal self. And if you don't want to do the writing exercises, the quality of the book will be unaffected.
Too many people complain that their adults lives are boring and lacking the adventure of childhood. This is a book about reclaiming qualities that for no good reason, are abandoned in adulthood. A simple, powerful message.
