Many self-help books offer a lot of new age platitudes and sappy mantras:
Just love yourself.
See the glass as half full.
Believe it and it will come.
Really? That’s not how it works, and you know it. A lifetime’s worth of struggle is not overturned in a small moment of positive thinking. But if you have the right attitude - attitude and skills - you can and will accomplish anything and everything you want. This book gives you both, attitude and action. By its end, you will have all the tools you need to change your life. No hype. No false promises. You will learn to:
Cultivate your passion and embrace your uniqueness to create a purpose-filled life... on your own terms
Transform your suffering into peace, wisdom, and strength
Work through fear, worry, shame, and negative self-talk to blast through obstacles and create self-confidence, self-esteem, and a healthy self-image
Take powerful, informed, deliberate actions to make your dreams a reality
Forget surviving; it’s your time to thrive. You do have the ability and potential to achieve unlimited health, wealth, and happiness. Getting there won’t all be easy - nothing worthwhile ever is - but take this journey and your life will change dramatically. Your possibilities are unlimited, and your life is waiting for you to break free and claim it.

Good but not as good as Anthony Robbins
I have listened to a lot of these audiobooks so I've already heard most of what's on this. If you're new to this then you'll get more out of it than me and it does cover a lot of areas which will help you grow, and like every book I listen to on this subject I did pick up one or two things which I'll use I did like the author although my mind did keep wandering whilst listening, whether this is because of familiarity of the subject or it wasn't that gripping I can't honestly say.
All of these self development books, which I've listened to, which is quite a lot over the years, are pretty much the same as each other. For me the best is Anthony Robbins by far for self development and Zig Ziglar for sales.
You may think that 3 stars is low but I feel people give out 5 stars too readily, for me 5 stars has got to be mindblowing and / or life changing, 4 stars excellent and 3 stars average to good, which I feel this book is

I hadn't heard of Jillian Michaels before this book. She has a great voice and attitude for motivation. Not too American in the examples that she gives, so its easy for someone from the UK to understand and relate to.
She makes some very interesting quotations, thought provoking and to the point.
Yes, I would recommend this book if you're looking for encouragement, strength, or some direction.

Interesting book, if your willing to work
If your willing to put in the work this book is going to push you in the right direction.
Any time a book starts off by saying it's not your 'average self help book' you know your in for an average self help book with re-hashed info. This started that way and quickly changed, this isn't a book that you can read and get a few ideas from. You have to be willing to put in some work and after that you will find yourself in a better place. I will admit there are a few spots I glazed over, but overall I was quite impressed with the delivery and structure along with the exercises included.
Well worth the read, I actually bought the hard copy for my wife to read (she doesn't like audiobooks lol)
*I'm a real person who writes real reviews on the books I get, if you don't believe me, check out my other reviews :) Thanks for reading

I love Jillian from "The Biggest Loser", but was hesitant to buy this audiobook because I wasn't sure how her energy would translate to this format. Was I pleasantly surprised! She's an exceptional narrator; her intonation and inflection are flawless - I've worked as a professional voice talent for 20+ years and am a critical listener - and her passion is genuine. A certain A+, I'm enjoying her work immeasurably. Thanks Jillian!
