If you are NOT like me and you have NOT been reading self development books since you were 15 years old, you'll find this book refreshingly deep, light and to the point; a no bs guide to take control of your life (yes, that was "copy-pasted" because if something is worth being told, is worth being told twice AND if something is worth being told is worth being told twice). It can save you a few thousand dollars on books trying to help you take action but ending up simply making you feel all powerful for a few days, till you go back to your old life (think Jim Carrey in Bruce Almighty, but without the happy meaningful ending and the hot wife).
Matthew didn't only create a page-turner, he created a personal reading experience full of "huh?" moments followed by "Aha!" moments, and quite often accompanied by "haha!" moments.
Don't take my word for it though, get a grip now and take a couple of minutes to read the first chapter and make up your mind.
To feel more connected
1. You are not connected
2. You should be more connected
3. Connect with someone
The book is an eyeroll
Best read in the morning on the toilet! Read 3-4 pages, put it down. Now begin your day doing the things you knew you have to do to make this day better.
This book is worth 25 personal development books because the information is compressed and short. You know how some books are 200 pages but you can figure out everything you need to know from their title? (eg "Quit eating so much if you want to be slim!"). How to get a grip is just the opposite - short - so now instead of spending 5 hours to read a book, you can use the 5 hours to improve your life.
Bonus: book is filled with British humor, it's the most fun personal development book I ever read!
