“Are you unhappy, stressed, or just plain bored with your life? Are you stuck in your comfort zone and wishing that you could get more out of life? If so, The MISOGI Method by Jody B. Miller is the book you need to help break you out of the ho-hum and help you achieve your dreams.”
“A MISOGI can involve your career, an athletic feat, or even one of your passions, such as art, nature, culture, etc. It should be something that feels crazy and scary, but at the same time, thinking about it should be exciting. The benefits of a MISOGI? According to Miller, achieving a MISOGI, or even coming close, will help you feel more alive, happy, and at peace with the world around you. By taking such a radical step, you expand your comfort zone, so striving to achieve more comes easier to you in the future.”
“Each section has clearly laid out details, examples, and exercises to go through to complete each step necessary to achieve your MISOGI. In some cases, there are multiple choices of ways to complete a task, since different methods may work for different readers. There are places to record your progress and your reflections after completing each step. Included along with the text of the manual are transcripts of several interviews that Miller has done with people who have completed various types of MISOGIs, as well as the transcript of Miller’s TEDx talk regarding her MISOGI method. A large list of resources is included at the end of the book for the reader who would like to do further research.”
“Throughout the book, the author uses a friendly tone with lots of personal asides, which makes the book feel more like a conversation and less like a lecture. I think the tone worked well for the subject matter. Miller’s attitude is positive and encouraging that anyone can conceive of, complete, and benefit from their own MISOGI.”
