You, Only Better contains a plethora of techniques and methods to help you gain energy and focus on what is important to you -- helping you to get motivated and achieve more.

I've read a lot of self-development books but this one stands out as being uniquely presented. Author Nicholas Bate includes a lot of his own sketches and drawings, which add a dimension to his writing that is missing in other books in this genre, and writes in an almost conversational style which I found easy to follow and

Compared to all the other "self-improvement" texts out there, this one worked for me. I say "me" because this kind of review can be quite subjective. That said, I found the author's tone to be lightweight, yet substantial enough that it wasn't too fluffy, nor was it too in-your-face.

I'm an admitted fan of Nicholas Bate's work. He was kind enough to send me a copy of You, Only Better, with no strings attached. I really enjoyed the book. It forces you to step back and get some perspective. What was nice was that when some of the early advice seemed surfacy, Bate then immediately dug into his own advice, clarifying it and taking it deeper.

I like the format with lots of little drawings and illustrations. I walked away with an inspiration that I tend to get from Tom Peters books

الكتاب جيد جدًا في رأيي. السبب في ذلك أن كتب التنمية الذاتية تعج بالكثير من الأفكار المجردة وقصص النجاح والتغيير الثوري والإطناب المرهق للقارىء؛ هذا الكتاب بسيط وواضح ومباشر في مضمونه دون إسهاب مفرط وشعارات زائدة وقصص تدمع لها العين. هو يعطيك ببساطة أساليب تغيير حياتك في عدة عناصر وكيفية تنفيذها بأساليب عملية ومفيدة تغطي جوانب حياتك المختلفة، الشخصية والعملية.

Liked the images in the book! Conveyed a whole lot sense than could be said in words.
Liked the A-Z of You, only better. Thought that was the best giveaway I can take away from the book!

I went to one of Nick's day courses a couple of years ago. This book lays out a lot of what I learnt that day and has a lot of other useful information in it.
