Guest Review by Sol A.
‘Millennial Samurai,’ by George Chanos is a self-help book like no other. This book almost functions like a set of small, bite-size pieces of wisdom that you are able to read quickly and carry with you throughout your day. Many of the chapters get to the point quickly, which is a feature that I greatly appreciate, having read a lot of self-help books that devolved into self-aggrandizing rhetoric all too quickly. And they leave you with strong, impactful sentences that you can easily remember. Take the chapter on ‘Failure’ that gave me the gem, “Having a great character does not require that you never make mistakes.’ That’s a sentence that I know is going to stay with me for a while and help me when I feel that I have messed something up.
Chanos gives advice from everything to stress, courage, compassion and even things you normally would never see in a self-help book like sections on police corruption and student debt. The latter being my favorite section in the entire book. I don’t think I know a single millennial without student debt and, therefore, we can all use this book. This type of knowledge and wisdom can only come from someone who clearly has a lot of experience in the world and someone who enjoys sharing said experience.
Reading this book, I almost felt like I was getting a debt-free college course in life management. It was like Chanos knew exactly what I needed to hear about everything that is going on in my life. He really did tap into the millennial mindset with the political and internet sections of the book, which I greatly enjoyed. All in all, I would recommend this to any of my millennial friends who are looking for a little guidance in their lives and are unsure where to turn to get it. I give this book a highly recommend 5 out of 5.
Praise for Millennial Samurai
“Millennial Samurai is an everything book for everyone. The first half is a pleasant refresher of “the important stuff” with beautiful quotes from outstanding people and clear and concise text from Chanos to absorb and reflect on. The 2nd half will blow your mind, give you new tools/apps, and give you conversational fuel and advice to take action on to make life more fulfilling. This is the kind of book you wish every school had in the classroom for students to reflect on with each other and their teachers. I just became an Uncle recently and look forward to reading this to my nephew when he’s of age. With the internet being so massive it’s so nice to own something that has all the essentials of today all in one place.”-Phil A., Amazon
“This book is a life-changer! It is filled with truths that will last forever. Destined to be a classic and a must for every human being on earth to read, absorb and put into action. This is Napoleon Hill’s 17 Laws Of Success for millennials! An extraordinary piece of art. This is a masterpiece. Great work to you George!”- Extraordinarily You, Amazon
“I have finally found a book that the author is sympathetic with not only my age group but also that anyone who can relate to the way to success in the day and age of millenialism, and how to use what we know nowadays to be ahead and get far. I am astonished at the fast pages and quick read in each chapter since it made it easier for my attention to get a grip on it. “-Tina Chau, Amazon
