Man Up can TEACH Everyone of all ages to be relentless, resourceful & resilient. Get this book!
I have literally read dozens of books on the topics. "Man Up" is now my go to source. It takes everything you know, what you don't know, and what you don't want to experience,,and puts it all together seamlessly in such a way that I was able to read through the first time in 3 short sittings.
This is not just a one time read. I am already half way through it a second time. I will keep this book on my desktop as a regular go to field manual.
The amount of knowledge, examples, lessons, and Golden Nuggets, is Amazing. Every story, example and idea, each has it's own take home point.
These things are not just some "rah, rah" motivational quotes,,this book is packed with immediately implementable steps, that you can take action on, right as you are reading it.
It was so helpful, I order over 20 of them to give out to my Team, staff, and clients.
I suspect the reason for all the hype and high ratings is because the book is being promoted by different self-help and positive thinking gurus. They get a commission on each sale of the book, so naturally they hype it up. The gurus promoting this rehashed junk probably never even actually bothered to read it.
For me, this book falls flat, just a puffed up book full of hot air, rehashed talk and mumbo-jumbo taken from various different self-improvement books. For example, expressions like “you are the product of the 5 people you associate with most.” Nothing new here. At all!
Even worse, he tries to include these brief, little “exercises” at the end of each chapter. Weak! Just weak! Fails to connect the necessary dots by which anyone will actually be able to do anything with them. Here’s the perfect example:
At the end of chapter two he has this exercise. You open up a document on your computer or get out a piece of paper. Divide it into four columns:
2. The Outcome
3. The Likelihood
4. What Can I Do to Prevent It?
Part of which then reads...
FEAR: What are you afraid of right now that’s stopping you from getting what you want? What’s the feeling in the pit of your stomach?
OUTCOME: How likely is it that what you’re afraid of will happen to you?
WHAT CAN I DO TO PREVENT IT:
The above is just part of what he says, but my point is... what good is this unless you are ONLY applying it to a problem that has not yet occurred? He fails to connect the dots... such as a scenario whereby you “fear” that something will NOT happen FOR you. Example: what if my “fear” is due from not being able to find a reliable source of traffic or advertising? Something that IS happening to someone right NOW. Not JUST something that COULD happen to you in the FUTURE.
If you have NEVER even read a self-help or self-improvement book in your entire life, then this book might do you some you some good. But otherwise, it is weak, lacks any real substance of which I can apply to my life, is an overinflated book loaded mostly with talk from dozens of other related books, overhyped... just more weak junk. He also claims you get a free leadership training course with purchase of the book. What a loser! He thinks people are stupid, inexperienced and naive. The course is only 6 videos and each video is only a few minutes in length.
The real lessons from Man Up are about changing your mentality. The book is about how to stop making excuses, and start taking responsibility. It's not exactly a ground breaking concept, but it's also something that's easier said than done. Where most authors give superficial advice that merely sounds good, Bedros instead raises the bar by being real.
Instead of spewing cliche advice, Bedros does an amazing job of teaching critical lessons by sharing his own story. He makes connecting with the reader seem effortless. His story starts from such humble beginnings, before growing into the kind of man that anyone can relate to - mistakes and all. Within each story is a lesson, and the end of each chapter contains practical, actionable steps to ensure that each lesson sticks.
What really sets Bedros apart is that through all of his success, he still seems like a regular guy you'd want to grab a beer with. While most entrepreneurs that reach his level of success seem to live alien lifestyles - either working 24/7, or flying on private jets surrounded by an entourage - Bedros shows off the more down to earth behavior of a real person - spending time with family, surfing, the loneliness of being the boss (and how to prevent it). It's that connection that makes each lesson relatable.
If you read one book about business or personal development this year, Man Up should be it.
