    I feel like I have to give a self-help book five stars if I put even a few of the tips into practice. Full of practical ideas to make daily life simpler, and all centered around the idea of resilience, which is a construct I love. I listened to this on audio, and it is another one I will definitely re-visit for ideas.

When it was suggesting alterations I could make in my life I found my attention drifting towards the personal and away from what the narrator was continuing on with saying, meaning I had to double back at quiet a few times over the course of the book and found, unfortunately, a bit of the power of this ultimately became lost to me.

    I've read quite a few of these self-help books covering the same topics as this one, and this is....well, another one. The author took the tact of creating a kind of "greatest hits" version of a variety of self-help concepts. To pull these ideas together in one book, the concepts are described in short chapters. While I didn't find anything new here, I did appreciated the attempt to organize these concepts.

I also appreciated the way the author put effort into creating short descriptions of the concepts and short methods to implement them. You don't always get that in these kinds of books. The anecdotes used were also better than average. Okay for review.

    lots of basic stuff but all well put together without much fluff, very quick read. This should have been a workbook imo. If one did it one day at a time it'd require only 10 minutes a night of reading and 10 minutes introspection/ development. instead of should say I want to "...complaining, which is really a form of judgement..." what do you live for, what do you stand for, your perfect day write out your existing routines and then mark them up with changes lots of basic stuff but all well put together without much fluff, very quick read.

    This book was a complete slog. I finished it because I hope to use some of the information for work, but, seriously, skip this if you’re looking to improve your resilience. You Are A Badass by Jen Sincero is so much easier, entertaining, and useful. First, the writing is abysmal. Are there no editors anymore? The syntax is so off that I thought Montminy was not a native English speaker, though her bio indicates she was born in the US.

I finished it because I hope to use some of the information for work, but, seriously, skip this if you’re looking to improve your resilience. You Are A Badass by Jen Sincero is so much easier, entertaining, and useful. First, the writing is abysmal. Are there no editors anymore? The syntax is so off that I thought Montminy was not a native English speaker, though her bio indicates she was born in the US. I’ve also never before had the experience of reading a self-help book written almost as a memoir. She inserted so much of herself into the book and used “I” and “me” so often, once even asking the readers if we’d answered “my questions honestly,” that it was uncomfortable. Next, the quizzes throughout the book often make no sense. They’ll have an “or” statement, but you need to answer on a Likert scale or with yes or no: “Do you cringe when kids are next to you in an airplane, or do you feel for their parents who have to juggle them on the flight?” This isn’t a great example, but I’ve wasted enough time with the book. Many other quizzes are Likert scales, and you’re told if your answers are on one side or the other, that’s good, but the questions don’t skew that way. But, what makes the book absolutely pointless is that it’s supposed to be exercises over 21 days of topics, some of which are so redundant that the days need not exist, but I guess she couldn’t use “19 days” because she read somewhere that we build habits in 21 days. Never mind that that stat isn’t accurate for something as complicated as resilience. Anyway, the book is organized really well, with an exercise to do in the morning, during the day, at night, and then to adopt for life. Nice approach, right? Until you read the book and realize that the exercises are not one-day events and that if you actually try to adopt everything in the book you’ll have to quit your job because you’ll be spending all day every day gazing at your navel as a means to become more resilient. I wanted to love this book; I wanted to buy it for all my coworkers; I wanted to do small group work with it. Now I just want back all the hours I spent on it.

    Good to read works like this. Find them inspiring. Studies indicate that it takes 21 days of consistent behavior to change a habit. This is the underlying premise of the book's title.

Her presentation is based on current research, including many based on recent brain studies. The one I liked the most was a study on showing how humans from infancy have propensity to be altruistic. Adults pretended to have lost something, like a key, and the babies automatically joined the search. However, when the adult cavalierly discarded an item and then pretended to be searching for it, amazingly the babies found tell the difference and therefore would not assist.

    I listed to the audio version of this book that I borrowed from my local library. My biggest complaint is that I was unable to download the "enhancements" that were continually referred to which hindered my ability to practice the exercises at the end of each chapter. It would be nice to have had them to either do at a later time after listening at a location that wasn't ideal for writing (car, walking, etc.) or do while listening.

    I enjoyed it and I feel that this book helped me a lot. I followed it quite loosely, and read the chapter the night before, so I could start my day with the goal in mind. This got me into reading nightly and spending less time on my phone. I think to try and do every single thing in here in unrealistic; considering that she says "take 1 minute every day" for 20 different topics and I truly could never remember them all or take that time daily. Tl;dr - definitely benefited, but do it slowly and w I enjoyed it and I feel that this book helped me a lot.

    I love the practicality of this book as Montminy serves as a personal resilience trainer. And since life constantly requires training, (and resilience) her writings should always be on the back burner, so to say. Close at hand so one can easily take a hold of the wisdom Montminy shares. I can’t wait to read this again!

    Grāmata, kas saliek pa plauktiņiem gudrības, kas ikdienas steigā aizmirsušās. Iesaku tiešām lasīt katru dienu pa vienai nodaļai uz izpildīt uzdevumus- tad var just kā šīs zināmās lietas iespējams izmantot. Patika, viegli lasāma.

    Weak sauce. If you’re looking for resilience there are way better books out there. This is a pour distillation of several ways to gain resilience. Might as well read the 21 chapter headings and buy a book related to each one - like Emotional Intelligence, for example.

    Useful guide for developing the building blocks of resilience I took my time reading this book so I could really reflect on and apply the advice of each characteristic shared by resilient people. It has been a challenging time and I felt the book really did give me practical steps to take to address my situation. I finish this book knowing there is still a lot of work to do but feeling better about my ability to handle life's challenges. I definitely will read this again when I need a refresher.

    (I received this book as a Goodreads giveaway.) (It always feels awkward until I proclaim that fact in my reviews...) This would be a great guide for someone who is disciplined enough to follow it through for 21 days. After I read it and thought about it, perhaps even 21 WEEKS would be even better! I was impressed with the interactive format (it wasn't just a self-help book; more of a hardbound workbook) and the clear information presented. Dr. Montminy has a great voice that comes through warmly (I received this book as a Goodreads giveaway.) (It always feels awkward until I proclaim that fact in my reviews...)

I'm going to hand this one to friends who love this sort of book! (I wish I had the focus to complete all the exercises; they're very good.)

    I won this book through Goodreads giveaways in exchange for an honest review. It took me longer than 21 days to read this book, just because I needed more time to think about some of the topics. I didn't actually do the exercises completely, but plan to go back through and do them as needed. Overall I thought the information was a nice reminder of what is important to focus on. The chapters are short and informative. The writing is accessible. I won this book through Goodreads giveaways in exchange for an honest review.

    This is a good choice for readers who are looking for brief informational passages with clearly defined exercises and questions to answer. I liked how each chapter was laid out, and that Dr. Montminy offered concrete suggestions (down to time of day) of how to accomplish each building block for resiliency. Some of the chapters were more engaging than others, and plenty of the information can be found in other sources. Recommended for those looking for less reading and more action.

    I liked the book. The information covered on how to be a resilient person was good information, but nothing in it drew me to implement the Morning, Day, Night and Lifetime To Dos. Honestly making the book bigger, and formatting it differently to be able to find the tips easily might make a difference.
