Description

It's one of the biggest lies you've probably heard your entire life: Mastering one specific skill set is the key to success. That may have been true 20 years ago, but in today's global economy, being the best at a single thing just doesn't cut it anymore.

Think about those people who somehow manage to be amazing at everything they do — the multi-millionaire CEO with the bodybuilder physique or the rock star with legions of adoring fans. We all quietly envy them from time to time — how do they manage to be so much better at life?

It’s tempting to believe they've achieved greatness because they're the very best in their field... or think that maybe it's just dumb luck. But it's much more than that. They've defied traditional perceptions of success by acquiring and applying multiple skills to make themselves valuable to others. They’ve become generalists.

In How to Be Better at Almost Everything, best-selling author, fitness expert, entrepreneur, and professional business coach Pat Flynn shares the secrets to learning (almost) every skill, from marketing to music to martial arts to writing and relationships, teaching how to combine interests to achieve greatness in any field. His direct, “Generalist” approach to self-improvement gives you the tools you need to make your mark on the world and make buckets of money — without losing your soul.

Discover how to:

  • Learn any skill with only an hour of practice a day through repetition and resistance.
  • Package all your passions into a single toolkit for success with skill stacking
  • Turn those passions into paychecks by transforming yourself into a person of interest.

In today’s fast-paced, constantly evolving world, it’s no longer good enough to have a single specialty. To really get ahead you need a diverse portfolio of hidden talents you can pull from your back pocket at a moment’s notice. How to Be Better at Almost Everything teaches you how to gain a competitive edge in both your professional life and personal life.

    Easy to read and very helpful especially if you start practicing what the guy says :)
  • (4/5)
    The book was nicely organized with full of tips. Being a generalist I like how Pat introduced integration over isolation points. I do recommend the book to someone who loves to differentiate everything in his/her life.
  • (1/5)
    His voice and the anecdotes are too annoying. Maybe I'll try to read the text version.
  • (4/5)
    Very well written and to the point and I liked the narration
  • (1/5)
    Horrid, just horrid. The useful information in this book could have fit on a 3 x 5 note card.
  • (5/5)
    I really enjoyed the simple description of the learning PROCESS!
  • (4/5)
    Very interesting, and a new way to look at developing skills! I really liked the authors quirky sense of humor, and his ability to simply articulate his thoughts. My only complaint would be that I wish he spent more detail on his principles for skill stacking. His stories sometimes distracted me, more than bring me in to understand his principles better. Overall, I highly suggest this book!

    Stopped halfway through. Writing style is condescending and flippant. I understand that it is his form of humor. I personally didn't care for the writing style.
    The main message seemed to be, don't kill yourself trying to be 100% perfect at just one thing. It's better to be just good at many things. Prefection is for specialists. Being 80% proficient at many things will give you more flexibility and options in life.

    I feel like the information in this book is great, as well as the explanations. I had some trouble with the speed of delivery and some super long sentences and in this way, this book may be better read as opposed to listened to. All in all, very enjoyable.

    It was good, and while I have nothing against religion, I think the book would have been better if that very small part was left out.
