Another week has gone by and I’ve completed another book! 🙂 Here is my Level Up Your Life book review, enjoy!
The book I read is called Level Up Your Life: How to Unlock Adventure and Happiness by Becoming the Hero of Your Own Story by Steve Kamb of Nerd Fitness.
I’ve been a reader of Nerd Fitness for quite some time and when I heard Steve was releasing a book I pre-ordered it as soon as I could! I also read it pretty quickly as it was a good read with lots of easily digestible information.
The book deals largely with developing an attitude of adventure in your life! Using all your favorite nerd culture references he encourages the reader to develop a love for life through ‘quests’ which you develop for different aspects of your life such as fitness, career, social and fun.
It’s also important to note that Steve has created a companion website for the book where you can actually implement some of the planning he suggests. At LevelUpYourLife.com you can create a character to represent yourself and then describe the various quests you are going to undertake. It’s all about ‘gamifying’ your life and goals.
Most of these topics are covered on Steve’s blog NerdFitness.com so there was little new information for me but it was great to have everything in the one place and so easily accessible. In fact some of the articles discussing these topics are several years old so it was an excellent refresher for me!
I recommend this book to everyone as an easy read which will help enthuse you to pursue the life you truly want and all through emulating our favorite movie and game heroes!
