He is a very funny guy. He’s also a very wise guy.
Note: This book is not for those who don’t enjoy some colorful language. And… It very much IS for those guys who DO. In fact, although I think anyone not easily offended will enjoy the book, I think this is the PERFECT book for the kind of guy who *doesn’t* usually like “self-help.” Tripp is such a funny, self-deprecating (yet wise!) guy that “normal” guys love.
As Phil Stutz (who has coached both of us) says: “You become dangerous, not when you’re a threat to others, but when you become a threat to the excuses and bad habits that have held you back in life. Tripp’s book lives up to its title; it’s a practical guide to a victory over yourself. Only then are you truly dangerous.“
Side note: It’s funny because when I thought about how we both came to work with Phil, I realized that it started when I sent Tripp . Then he interviewed Phil and Barry. Then he introduced me to them so I could interview them. Then I hired Phil. Then I reconnected Tripp and Phil. And, here we are.
I especially loved the book because Tripp does such a GREAT job at making this whole Optimizing game FUN. He calls us on our nonsense AND makes it all a big game—encouraging us to PLAY more as he gives us the practical tools to experience the freedom, aliveness, love and peace we’re all looking for. Not in some abstract future fantasy world. TODAY.
It’s packed with Big Ideas and I’m excited to share some of my favorites, so let’s jump straight in!
