She plants seeds that blossom into fruitful thoughts

I enjoyed Brianna’s fresh take on many areas in life; excellent for late night work sessions or road trips. Deep thinking and common sense beautifully crafted into a book.

Fell short

This book has potential but she fails to elaborate on the important things and repeats herself too much. She could have gotten her point across with less chapters.

Excellent book. Too much cussing

This was an excellent book. I enjoyed the format and it has a lot of great subjects to think about. I wish I could recommend this book to my family but I can’t because she added SO MUCH unnecessary and out of place four letter words and G.D. Cussing. It was so off pudding and unnecessary. I don’t understand why she decided to do that.

A bunch of lists???

This book started out really good and I did enjoy large chunks of it. It definitely has great insights and it gets you thinking and analyzing yourself and your life. What I didn’t like about it was that so many chapters were just lists. Not even with any commentary or analysis, just lists of things to think about. That part got old because it doesn’t follow a thought and get deep. After a while it just feels like endless lists of reasons/questions/thought-provoking statements.

Comforting and challenging

Absolutely loved this. Whilst repetitive at times, this is a collection of essays and thoughts so this is forgiven. I know I shall regularly revisit these wise words. One of the best things I’ve listened to in a long time .

Long Long lists.

Not sure why this is called 101 Essays. Just long lists of thoughts. If you need some Inspiration might help. But best to listen while sitting and you can take notes.
