"From the New York Times bestselling author of Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man, a call to break through our limits and say yes to a life of infinite possibility. You may know Emmanuel Acho as the host of groundbreaking video series "Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man." Or as a New York Times bestselling author. Or as an Emmy-winning television broadcaster. Or as a former linebacker for two NFL franchises. What you probably don't know is that Emmanuel defines his own life with just one word: Illogical. Behind every triumph, every expression of his gifts, Acho has had to ignore what everyone around him called "logic": the astronomical odds against making it, the risks of continuing to dream bigger or differently. Instead of playing it safe, at every turn Acho has thrown conventional wisdom-logic-out the window. Now, in this revelatory book, he's empowering us all to do the same. Whether it's creating the next groundbreaking startup, fighting for change as an activist, or committing to a personal passion, Illogical is the go-to book for all readers ready to become change-makers. With a step-by-step guide to finding our callings and shifting our mindsets, enlivened by stories from Acho's life and other illogical pioneers, Acho asks us to replace the limits set for us, and which we set for ourselves, with a world of possibility. Our horizons, he shows us, are endless"--… (mais)

Clarification: I read this book from my library because if it is available there, it helps me decide whether or not to buy a book. I do not wish to own this book, and following are some of my reasons. The personal development points are valid. If you have already spent time building personal development skills, you are unlikely to benefit from this book. If you are interested in knowing more about the author, then the book may be of interest for you. As for the writing, it starts out well. The examples of how the author chose actions to overcome obstacles (e.g., the use of research to reach success in tasks), is valuable. By the time I was a third of the way through the book, I could see heavy repetition, both of the terminology and referencing the same stories. The use of the term "illogical" is interesting and I like it; and I can see how the author repeats it to bring the points back to the theme. Unfortunately, it is painfully overused. I think the Bible stories and religious references do not belong here at all. Editorial note: For example, in Chapter 11, “Goals Are Dumb”, the chapter begins with a story that is really about “expectations” not “goals”. The chapter does later get to the topic of goals and points about when goals are not helpful. Conclusion: The writing needs much editing and focus to make this book worth buying. ( )
