Nick has got amazing results.
Anyone who wants to make a big impact on their own lives or on the world and is ready for a rewarding challenge, this book will provide all the levers you need to reach your goals.
I find that Nick has deeper and more profound understanding that anybody else I've read or met and he's leveraged and layered motivation to maximize results.
Please see the above comment in light of the fact that I became a best-selling author of a DOS book (Waite Group/Macmillan) in 1990 when I worked in Silicon Valley, and since then I've written a few books with the goal of "changing life" of the reader. Two of books have helped over 500,000 students, so I do know a bit about motivation.
Now, I have added extra goals without taking away from main goals. This book will help you do the same.
The biggest problem you may face is the fact that all of us are very lazy. We watch football, baseball and basket ball, but most of us don't play. We are just happy to cheer our teams.
By the way, I just sent a paperback to my daughter who's in 6th grade, and I am asking her to check it out. I'll report back here if and how she changes because of this powerful book.
Get the book. He's also kind enough to price it just $2.99.
Maybe not life-changing work, but it might just start you on a path of improvement. I know it has for me.
There's a lot more to it than that, separating short term goals from long term and a lot of tips on tools and how to create your own.
The one downside I found was at the end of the book, where the last chapter was literally a list of all the things he did and accomplished. Seeing as he addressed most of those during the course of the book as helpful examples, I didn't think they were very necessary and they didn't offer any additional tips. You can easily skip them, which makes the book significantly shorter, where I feel a better wrap up could have occurred. There is also 15% of the book taken up by sourced links alone (the index at the very end).
Seeing as the book definitely taught me a number of things and has great insight, I still rated it pretty highly and would suggest buying it.
From what I've read so far I've been recommending this book to other self hacking geeks and if I find more good material in the book and/or find that my own motivation and productivity increase or improve I will likely post a more detailed review here and further recommend the book.
A central contention of the book is that (a) whatever one's strength of will, it's best not to depend on it, and (b) motivation can be pre-buffered with so many hacks that willpower becomes irrelevant. Don't scaffold the will with one hack, load it into a cannon with five. And the book is chock-full of exportable lessons on how to do just that.
The author wrote Motivation Hacker in the course of stress-testing its contents, and it's fitting that the book is a product of its own recipes. It's well referenced and more engaging in form than most popular psychology books. Rather than a string of loosely connected anecdotes we get a unique blend of Bildungsroman and present-tense memoir. It's mad science only in the precise sense that makes normal look bad.
