I'm always happy to share new reviews of my work. Here is a 4-Star review just posted by Chiwelite O of OnLineBookClub.org on my newest publication, "Pushing The Boundaries! Howe Tl Get More Out Of Life":
In the journey of self discovery and finding purpose, there are so many oppositions to be confronted. Amidst all these oppositions, some fearless individuals succeed in breaking these boundaries without succumbing to challenges on their way to greatness. Out of these individuals spring notable leaders we know today.
Pushing The Boundaries! by Peter Jennings is a unique publication that takes us on a tour of many people who have survived and triumphed over limitations. The book contains thirty-three chapters, in which the author interviews thirty people on how they pushed the boundaries in their careers and life generally. These people include the famous Tuedon Morgan, a Nigerian marathon runner who talked about running to lose some weight after her fourth child. She spoke about her limitations as a child born with uneven legs. According to her, she embraced running as a need to push boundaries. The book also includes a profile of a high-flying fashion model, Hanne Gaby. Gaby talks about her psychological trauma of transitioning as an intersex, how she embraced herself despite the odds, and her contribution towards the "interACT advocates for youth."
Moreover, the book also covers the touching story of Bert Mann, a Jew who never gave up in the middle of a war. He talked about how he traveled by foot from Austria to Amsterdam. He told us how he held on to faith towards providing a safe place for himself and his family. What is the distinguishing factor of these people? What motivated them? Find out more about these incredible people and many others by reading this book.
This book contains so many positive aspects. There is a lot to benefit from while examining every character in this book. It tells us how these people did some clueless and unbelievable things, encouraging us to find possibility in the darkest moments. For example, stories like Marina Nemat, who suffered PTSD due to her prison experience in Tehran, where she was advocating for social injustice, which landed her in prison and close to execution. And Tommy Hilfiger, who, despite being dyslexic, achieved so much in the fashion industry without a degree. There are so many intriguing lessons to be learned while reading this book. These lessons apply to businesses and life generally.
Furthermore, the book is well articulated because when giving profiles on each person's achievements, it also includes their dark side and the mistakes each person made. Moreover, the book was adequately edited as many errors were not cited.
For the negative aspect, it is pretty tricky to figure out the negative part of this book but what I found a bit disturbing was the length of the book and excessive details that could bore readers.
I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. I did not give this book a lower rating because it is an excellent read. I recommend this book to those that love reading motivational books.
