Flo's Review
I'll start this review by saying that I've never read the original book You Are a Badass. I feel that probably would have helped. At the same time, I also felt like you don't necessarily have to read it to enjoy this one, and to take away some good thoughts and ideas. 

I will say that I listened to this one on audiobook, and I realized that it is probably better to read this one in physical format. This is interesting to me because I generally feel that motivational, nonfiction is better to listen to. Especially if it's read by the author, like this one is. But because this isn't so much a story as it it just a few thoughts and tips, I think it would be consumed best as a nightstand book that one reads a page or two of every morning. Because a lot of the ideas are, "Today, do this" type suggestions. It actually did work out well for me in that I listened to the majority of this while driving to work. But it was so many kind of disconnected tidbits that I just ended up forgetting most of them by the time I pulled into the office.

The general overall takeaway of this little book remains true though: work hard, think good thoughts, surround yourself with good people, and believe in yourself. That seems to be the key to being a badass everyday. I think I got this. Do you?
