This book is NOT another bland rehash of old material!

I was blown away by the degree to which Chris Friesen helps the reader dissect his/her personality tendencies. By scoring yourself (my wife and I helped score each other) in regards to five distinct tendencies you not only end up with a new perspective on yourself, but you are also able to immediately use that newfound knowledge to start modifying behaviour. It all made so much sense! This is a self help book that you can actually use to help yourself! This is NOT another bland rehash of opinion and conjecture. This is an impressive book produced by a results-oriented author. Chris Abell delivers the material crisply and clearly. He sounds enthusiastic about the subject matter. Once I got into the personality tendencies section of the book I realized I was listening pretty enthusiastically! I can't wait to listen to the next book in this series.

New and helpful twist on self improvement

Where does Achieve: Find out Who You Are, What You Really Want, and How to Make It Happen rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This audiobook is more relevant and applied than most of the other self improvement audiobooks I've listened to. The integration of personality traits with self-help strategies is excellent and leads to better and most lasting outcomes.

Any additional comments?

Loved the narrator and the personal touches and humour.

Second half is great, first half is undermined by marketing.

The latter half of this book contains useful, actionable, and science back information. You'll surely feel motivated to take the next steps towards fulfillment after listening.

Unfortunately, the first half of the book will put a bad taste in your mouth as the author constantly refers to "find out more in the other books in this series". This wouldn't be the worst thing ever if it wasn't done to the point of leaving out large swaths of information and supporting evidence for the authors claims. A cheap marketing trick that could have easily been avoided be adding another few chapters to this book.

Please write more books, you're a knowledgable author, but don't ask the reader to buy your work at the end of every single subsection in the entire first half of your book.

Maybe wait for this one to be on sale.

A good start

With the promise of future books, and hopefully Audible versions as well, Dr Friesen has provided a good start for anyone seeking success. I would have like the answers to some of the questions he raised, but promises to address in the future. Nevertheless, enough useable info made this a good listen.

More in Upcoming Books in the Series

TARGET AUDIENCE: Self-improvement book based upon sound clinical research, combined with real world experience. This is not a “motivational” book by a someone who has made it big and is just cheering you on, but based on proven techniques. If you like Steven Covey, Dave Ramsey, or Viktor Frankl you will love this book.

CONTENT: Contains excellent information about how to achieve your goals, including personality inventories, links to self-assessments, and worksheets. The only drawback is the author’s frequent reminder that he will further address items in “upcoming books in the series.”

NARRATOR: Excellent. The book was well read, and added to the book.

OVERALL: Absolutely recommend this book.
