At first glance, it is just a self-help book. There are scores of books written on the subject. And this book is not that different from them. However, great works do not necessarily stand out because they are different. The greatest writers actually do the exact same things that lesser ones do. But - they do them better. They spot, by intuition, the little details that matter, and form with an all-encompassing vision a coherent and fascinating whole.
Gorilla Mindset is a great book because it is so concise and penetrating. It is stripped of all redundancy, and the concepts that remain are powerful. It is important that you read it from start to finish without skipping chapters, because everything is organized and every chapter adds a new layer to the previous foundation. But the most important thing is reading it many times over again, thinking about everything the author writes about, and applying it to your own life. Gorilla Mindset thus becomes a companion who both guides you and prompts you to action.
If you're looking for proven strategies, with actionable advice that is simple and powerful, then Gorilla Mindset may be for you.
In truth, most books in this category only offer "mental masturbation." There is no actionable advice. Just lots of feel good words that make it seem like you're going somewhere. After reading, the weeks pass and nothing has been accomplished. Sound familiar?
We've all read books like that. And they do a great disservice to people like you, who are genuinely working to improve their lives.
No improvement comes without action. And action without focus is chaos. You need a blueprint, a game plan, to pour your energy into.
You also need the tools, checks and balances to measure yourself against. Otherwise how can you progress, or even understand what's holding you back from your dreams?
Gorilla Mindset is about unshackling yourself from the negative, self-defeating attitudes and actions that enslave you to a life of miserable mediocrity.
This book teaches you how to take back control of your actions, emotions and health, to live the life you really want to.
Through his websites and social media, Mike Cernovich has opened himself to the public as a case study. You can see for yourself that his strategies work exceptionally well.
Gorilla Mindset explains how you can use those same techniques to greatly improve your own life.
Are you ready to move forward?
I dare you.
The earlier parts of the book about mindset and positivity are the most generally useful. His later suggestions on health, such as taking aspirin to improve blood flow, are more opinion-based than useful.
A reader can do their own research to identify a diet and exercise regimen that works for them.
For this reason, the first half of the book is the most useful. The second half felt like filler content that advised how to live more like the author does, rather than generally useful tips.
Overall, he focuses on being positive and proactive in life, which is a valuable mindset that I cannot argue with.
I think 3 stars is a fair rating: good advice overall, but the filler content would best be left out.
