Mixed feelings

While I absolutely love the hosts and the idea of the podcast, after listening to 5 episodes yesterday and today I am a bit confused about my overall feeling.

I guess the point of reviewing and testing various self-help books’ methods is showing what works, saving time and money for other people and giving the right guidance. That’s why I got hooked...
But, I try to totally cut off the negativity (especially during my mornings) and I do not enjoy listening to SO MUCH criticism towards authors who do not “tick all the boxes” for the hosts.

I guess what matters is the value that their books provide, the quantity of changed lives ... even if it is only one life changed to better:), but not really their personality features and their past failures. Maybe those failures made those authors realize a lesson that now helps others.. by the book!

For now, I decided to listen to all remaining episodes as I love the educational and research findings part, but I am not sure I can stick to be a loyal follower if the authors’ “bashing” continues :)) I guess we all should respect the effort and hard work and time that goes into writing those books, plus it would be good if you also evaluate the results that people get after reading and applying- usually each self book has a community with proven track records and reviews documented! Just an idea:)
