Be Audacious: Inspiring Your Legacy and Living a Life That Matters Reviews
I have very mixed feelings about this book. Its overall message about living audaciously is great. There's a lot of wisdom contained in this book, and trust me, I've read a lot of self-help books over the years. This is one of the best in terms of deep content. What isn't so great (for me, at least) is the way the author presents his material.While it's clear that Michael Leach has drawn these lessons from the life he's led to date and the challenges he has managed to live through, this text really could have used more guidance from a good editor. While I appreciate the influence he has had on the young in his work with his nonprofit and as a basketball coach, I wasn't impressed with his introduction, a testimonial by one of his protegees. In fact, I almost didn't proceed with the book simply because of that.I am glad I did, but so much of the book I found to be challenging. His choice of wording (swagger, in particular comes to mind) was grating at times, very off-putting, and didn't do justice to his overall message of hope, reliance, and thinking beyond self. The mere fact that I am overlooking these elements to give him a perfect score speaks volumes about his content. While some would say that this reflects the author's own voice -- or perhaps I am simply too old for this "new" type of communication -- I would posit that it's not worth alienating your audience to appeal to a particular group of readers. Or maybe this should have been labeled a YA book?In short, this book has excellent content, despite its flaws, and therefore comes recommended. Unfortunately, it's like receiving a gift in a plastic bag instead of wrapped up in shiny paper with a big silver bow. As the author himself might suggest, it's truly what's inside that counts.
In "Be Audacious", by Michael W. Leach, the author encourages the reader to be 'authentic', a way of saying 'be yourself' to the end that you live your hopes and dreams. The author sprinkles a large measure of his personal life and the lives of others to make the book readable, but also offers exercises to keep the reader on track.
