I don't normally right reviews on Amazon, but felt compelled to right a review about this book.

I don't understand how anyone can rate this book below 5 stars. The first review on this book is just ridiculous where the reader complains that the book is a 'cut and paste' job. Its clearly not, Sean goes into an incredible amount of detail of each story he shares, and explains the notion behind each story, and what we should and can learn from history.

There is no better teacher than history. I had no idea Walt Disney had struggled so hard and how his passion and drive pushed him through every challenge, I had no idea that most of the people referenced in the story's which Sean writes about had gone through such incredible challenges. I've read a lot of books in this genre and this is my favourite book of all time.

Before this book, I had always tried to set goals and work through them blindly. Then you read this book and get a real life understanding how some of the most influential 'game changers' managed to achieve the most unbelievable results in just one lifetime.

You have to be someone who is really serious about getting the most out of your own life and the goals you've set to appreciate this book. I'm talking about life changing goals like starting a business or finding that new 'thing' which will change everything. This is what this book is all about, its a guide to how others have done it, and how others have completely gone beyond what is even humanly possible, and if you understand their mindset, you'll understand that no matter how large your goal is, you'll achieve it with the right plan of action. You'll see and understand that every single person didn't know HOW they would get there, they just knew that they would never stop trying. With everything that this book is made from in its references to history, its by far the best book I've ever read. Its real life, the people who lived were real and are real, what they did was real - this is not another 'opinionated' self help book - this shows you that you can do it too by way of example.

My mind has truly been opened by every single historical figure mentioned in this book who defied every possible challenge and defeated even their own expectations.

I hope this review helps, even if just one person - I certainly know it helped me!

I just completed the kindle version and I must say that I am quite satisfied. I found the book highly interesting and inspiring. It basically uses the stories of several "geniuses" along the history to pinpoint the principles or values that have made them succeed in their respective areas of knowledge.

I must say that after reading it, it has actually awaken my inner need to engage or focus seriously on something that could give more sense or purpose to my life. Perhaps my intention is not precisely become a "genius" in the complete meaning of the word, but the idea is to get the satisfaction of finding my full potential in some activity, my work in this case.

In summary, I think you'll find the book very motivating to find your "inner genius" and if not, at least interesting at go through the life of so many personalities.

This is a good collection of insights into the key traits of some of history's greatest characters. I think it does make you think about how you can incorporate these lessons into your own life and therefore I found it very interesting and useful.

I did find some stories more engaging than others, perhaps down to my own preference for recent history rather than ancient, so I felt some messages could have been conveyed in less words. However, as I suggested this may well be due to my own interests and I thoroughly enjoyed the entire book.

Overall, well worth reading and great value.

My main problem with this book is I didn't like the way the points were communicated. The stories were well written but I they were too long and tiresome in my opinion. I like things laid out clearly.

The way it was written was ok but just not my cup of tea. I guess I didn't like the format of the book.

From the title I thought it was a book with steps how to further unlock your potential, not just some stories of famous people displaying a quality they possessed.
