I chose this book because I thought it was the autobiography of a man who climbed all the way from ditches to riches. I was mistaken.
The book does not give you a chronological account of Worley’s journey. While he is frank about the obstacles he faced, such as addiction and homelessness, he does not describe how exactly he did this and when.
He tells you that he overcame all those and became successful in his personal and professional life. He and his mentor, Arron Chambers, thought that he could help people by way of business if he connected his stories to business. So, he elaborates on 10 values that constitute what he calls the Worley Way. He tries to explain what they are and how they helped him.
The result is a strangely structured book. This is because his life events are not mentioned sequentially and are haphazardly mentioned to explain his values. In some chapters, he talks disparagingly of his parents and siblings, while in others he seems quite proud of them.
His advice and recommendations are good but not exceptional. As in almost every book of the self-help genre, there is a lot of repetition and pontificating.
Overall, an okay book.
Note: I received a free advance review copy from BookSirens, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
