More than just a book, Play Your Bigger Game is a concept that will take you only nine minutes to understand but a lifetime to play. It was designed from the premise that life itself is one big game. And, if it is, then why not play one that excites, fulfills, and challenges you to develop and express your talents completely? By the way, there’s nothing wrong with wanting ...more

Rick Tamlyn has recently released his book, Play Your Bigger Game published by Hay House.

I'm reviewing it specifically with the BookNook community, as it is one of the newest releases. Know that the material it covers is the author's documentation of a popular workshop he and others provide as training at corporations, agencies, institutions and the like. With that in mind, I will honesty comment that this book may be more engaging as an audio book. I can hear the author's enthusiasm in his sha

FTC Disclosure: I acknowledge that I received this book free from Hay House Publishing to review. The opinion in this review is unbiased and reflects my honest judgment.

In Play Your Bigger Game, Rick Tamlyn teaches a new way to ferret out and live a greater life purpose. I loved the concepts he teaches, in examining each square of the Bigger Game. He often suggests relaxing and leaning into your bigger game. It is important not to worry about it or put a deadline on your discovery of your bigger

Empowering. Rick Tamlyn's Play Your Bigger Game is a 5 star read. You don't have to be one of those highly motivated types with huge dreams and goals to benefit from this book. There's a lot of good information here. I love the idea that our lives are "all made up." We're all in the process of creating our life moment by moment, so the Bigger Game concept is designed to help aid in focusing and creating what we want our life to look like. The game board is presented as a tic tac toe grid, with n ...more

Like most inspirational books based on coaching, there is too much self-promotion in this book. And the game aspect of the material is almost completely absent.

However, the model provides an accessible way of thinking about how to live in the midst of the perennial question - how do I create a life that feels alive and meaningful.

The Bigger Game material originated as a workshop form and the book conveys and impression that the workshops provide an embodied engagement with the material. I have n

This book is a great reminder to think bigger and expand our beliefs about what we can achieve. We're capable of so much when we have a "compelling purpose", which Rick Tamlyn brings up often in the book. He describes it as a vision that is bigger than just ourselves. It's related to how we can contribute to a greater cause.

When we find a compelling purpose, we can accomplish a lot because we're not worried about the "how" even if we don't quite now how we're going to do it - we naturally becom

Another self-help book based on coaching. Once you have identified your dream, your potential, your capacity to exploit, why wait? Everything has already been written by others and read by me, and this manual does not add anything new.

Un altro libro di autoaiuto basato sul coaching. Una volta che hai individuato il tuo grande sogno, il tuo potenziale, la tua capacitá da sfruttare, perché aspettare? Il tutto é giá stato scritto da altri e letto dalla sottoscritta e questo manuale non aggiunge nie
