This book is one you will have to sit down and revisit AMD reexamine a number of times to get all of the habits it teaches, but are well worth it since they all appear in other titles from the self-help genre; Cernovich brings them all together in a relatable and easy to read book.
My tip for these kind of books is to try phasing in one habit or supplement at a time so that you can pay attention to how it works for you. I read several self-help books and not all of what is proposed will be one size fits all. However if you can take and keep 1-3 good habits from each one you're doing great.
Cerno has introduced me to a lot of concepts and I am especially proud of knowing of Scott (Dilbert fame) through him. And then I dug up more until I found his old, now defunct blog: Crime and Federalism. I randomly read a few of his posts and I was hooked. I went all the way back to his first post, I think March 18, 2004(?) and read ALL of it! The amount and quality of books he has read, was beyond my imagination! Top-notch!
Gorilla Mindset: What made me buy his book? – his life; what he has gone through in life and how he came on top. The more I got to know of Cerno’s past, the more I was humbled which turned into respect. Anyone else would have crumbled. I had to read how he did it! And this book talks exactly that. This book lists very concrete things to follow and do to make oneself better. One of the examples that specifically helped me was about ‘self-talk’. Just that one simple change I incorporated in my life, changed me. He inspired me to blog. He inspired me to manage my energy levels and provided methods to do so.
I wouldn’t recommend this book for princy divas, not meant for them. This book is for men who think they have been dealt a weak hand and yet want to win!
A quote by Randy Pausch comes to mind, quote, “It's not about the cards you're dealt, but how you play the hand”, unquote.
This book builds your inner foundation and tells you exactly how you go about playing your weak hand.
