Review by RB
Overall Rating
How to Get Unstuck is enlightening, liberating, and helpful. I would pay the price of the book just to get to read the chapters on urgency vs. importance and on the cruciality of vision. I’ve laughed out loud and nearly cried at several points in the book. At times it reads a bit like a textbook or manual, but the majority of the time it reads more like a wise old grandparent sharing wisdom around the campfire while sipping something stimulating.

I want to be honest and confess that I was stuck before I read it, and I’ve been stuck while reading it. I’ve even felt stuck in the actual act of reading, finding it hard to finish the book due to all the demands in my life I feel tugging me in a dozen different directions (shows how badly I need this book!). Yet, these pages have been like oil on the neck and head that time as a two-year-old you got stuck between the stair banisters, and you somehow twisted your way out to freedom – it became easier to read the book the more I read it, and the things keeping me locked down lost much of their tight grip. I’m almost out of the stairway, and I’m indebted to the unsticking force of Perman’s balm. Thank you for writing this book! It’s changing my life! (Posted on 5/14/2018)
