This review is from: S.U.M.O. (Shut Up, Move On): The Straight-Talking Guide to Creating and Enjoying a Brilliant Life (Paperback)
I read the book over a couple of days, however found it really useful to go over some chapters with a pen and a piece of paper in hand afterwards, to write down whether some things were true about me and how i could change them. The book basically makes you understand that regardless of how unfair life can be at times, where/who you end up being is really down to you. It also made me see how some of my not-so-bright steps led to really lovely things in my life. So, i guess, it's a cliche, but it really brought home the true meaning of "every cloud has a silver lining".
I truly recommend this to people who are looking for inspiration to become a better version of themselves. None of the psychological speak and no finding your 'inner child' - all written for grown-ups, made me smile and smirk quite a bit (because many things discussed were so true) and was full of author's personal life examples for every issue raised.
I thought it was brilliant.
