How to be Fucking Awesome (Book Review)

How to be Fucking Awesome by Dan Meredith.

This was a book I found while scouring the Store for free Kindle Unlimited titles, and the selection wasn’t great. Most books were shitty 1 dollar, read in half an hour throwaways. I got one on the Annunaki , which I thought might be interesting to read, albeit full of Alien horseshit but it was terribly written, there were spelling mistakes and long lists of Sumerian gods descendants so I skimmed though it and promptly returned it.

I was looking for Gnostic books too, and the only one I found which I thought might be interesting, glitched out when I got it with no words showing up in it at all! After mailing customer support to let them know, I abandoned my search for Gnostic wisdom, after all, im paying 8 quid a month yet i would have to pay another 12 just to read the Gnostic Bible! Im thinking for that price I may just get the physical book.

In my search for anything decent, one title stood out amongst the garbage, lol. How to be fucking awesome seemed like a good read. It was 12 quid for the physical copy but free on Kindle Unimited so I thought Id be getting a bargain. A few seconds later I was reading it.

The author, Dan Meredith, has a pretty entertaining style of writing. He is not a clean-cut academic , no-cursing kind of intellectual big-word using , make-the-reader-feel-stupid novelist, he curses, he tells it like it is, he claims ‘Chakras’ and all that shit is nonsense,yet encourages it if it works for you,  he is very readable.

I started it last night, and really enjoyed it. The advice he is giving is sound too I think. As he says theres nothing sexy about it, just plain old hard work will get you where you want to be type advice. He recommends exercise, being selfish (as in , make sure your ok first so that you can help others better) and has a wealth of experience becoming a successful entrepreneur.

This guy just spells it out, giving you core principles to stick to for success, while mixing in some tales of his own life along the way. I don’t regret reading this book, and as I read it, I found it very inspirational, like one of those motivational speeches on YouTube. And his humour, along with speaking like a regular person, swears and all, really gave his attitude an entertaining quality that keeps you reading. Most importantly, his down to earth style means the advice really gets through to you.

It was a short enough book, I think I finished it all together in around an hour and a half. Since it was free, its all good. Perhaps he didn’t need to write more, as the knowledge in the book was enough.  Check it out if you enjoy getting motivated, and have 2 hours to kill, you’ll probably take something helpful from it. It may even change your life if you put his advice into practice.
