    “How do you figure out what it is that you’re really meant to do in this life? How do you find your point of entry? How do you begin?” I asked myself these questions the day before I started reading this book. To say that Leslie Odom Jr’s book is timely for me would be a massive understatement. I’m 24, 25 in a few months, meaning I should have my life figured out by now, right?! No, I shouldn’t. That pained me to write, but it’s TRUE.

Leslie Odom Jr’s advice to simply try has made things easier for me in my overworked head, gears have clicked falling into place. I have to try to find my passion by just trying, and having the confidence to fail and succeed spectacularly. Maybe my current job is a spectacular fail; if so, go me! And if it’s not, then I am still trying to achieve love for my work. Having faith in myself in my abilities has always been difficult, but I’ll get there. Thanks Leslie. Maybe I won’t wait for it, I might reach for my dreams every once and awhile. xo

    I absolutely adore Leslie Odom Jr. I’m a huge Hamilton fan but have also liked his other work. I was so excited for this book but found myself devastated at how poorly executed this book was. My favorite genre of book is memoir and this is not really it. It’s more bland mantra for success with short anecdotes. I wish I could share a picture of this book.

It reminded me of a magazine article but it happened in the whole book. It was very distracting and took away from the book. I also want to know who edited this book because it was riddled with sentence fragments and awkward, repetitive writing. Nothing was written in any depth or meaning. Every story was surface level and went back to the same single mantra: unless you’re willing to fail you won’t succeed. But the book lacked the nuance and development it deserved. If you are determined to read this book I suggest the audiobook. I read the book rather than listening to it and since Leslie had such an incredible voice it might be better as an audiobook. At least it’s short. I read it in a little over an hour. So if you don’t like it you won’t have wasted much time!

You’re glad you brought a book because there’s well over an hour of downtime between call and curtain for the Fourth of July spectacular you’re participating in. You’ve found a corner of the Shop where there’s a flight of stairs. You don’t sit because they’re dusty and you’re in all black, so you just lean on the inside part to keep out of the way. You read. And read. You move out of the way when a crew member needs to go up the stairs, or pull your book back when a group of Airmen go by with their gear. All the while you’re just enraptured with the tales of rises and falls, failures and successes, bits of advice you quickly take a photo of to retain. Only when someone walks by calling places do you meander towards stage left, eyes still devouring words, waiting for a good place to drop in a bookmark. You howl in frustration every time some new thing pops up to keep you from reading again, until finally, ten days later, you find a time to just sit and savor the second half of the book. More stories, more meaningful, poignant bits of advice that you can’t help taking in full bits to share with the world. Then, that’s it, no more, and you turn the page, hoping there might be some final tidbit on that final side. There isn’t, but it’s okay. Because you’re ready to go do All The Things. What have you got to lose?

    You may know Leslie Odom Jr. as Aaron Burr on the original Hamilton cast. He’s an amazing singer and actor, and now author! I listened this this on audio, and chose it because it was short (less than 4 hours), and I absolutely adore his voice. The book primarily focused on how he navigated his professional life as an artist and he shares some valuable advice along the way. The main message is that failing helps you learn and grow and not to be afraid of it. Also to go for what you want and be you You may know Leslie Odom Jr. as Aaron Burr on the original Hamilton cast.

The book primarily focused on how he navigated his professional life as an artist and he shares some valuable advice along the way. The main message is that failing helps you learn and grow and not to be afraid of it. Also to go for what you want and be your own biggest advocate. All great messages. My favorite part of the book was when he talked about hearing the Hamilton songs for the first time, and how he had the same feelings the first time he heard the RENT soundtrack. Something truly special, a once in a lifetime piece of art that every artist seeks to be a part of, that fills your soul. I’ve been fortunate enough to see Hamilton on Broadway and it’s one of the most amazing pieces of work I’ve ever seen. Like chills all over your body amazing. His acknowledgements at the end were really touching and heartfelt. The only drawback is that at times he implied some conflict with his dad that wasn’t really explored or explained further. I’m thinking he was trying to stay focused on the professional side of the book and wasn’t trying to make this a memoir, which is fair. I would have loved to learn more about his upbringing and personal life. I think this book would be great for anyone, but especially for high school or college students just starting out in the world and trying to figure out what they want to do with their lives. Or anyone needing a little motivation to get out of a professional rut. Or anyone who loves Hamilton. Ok so basically everyone 😂

    I wanted to like this book. As brilliant as Mr. Odom is, he should have hired a ghost writer, or at least a better editor, who could have sewn together his narrative and advice in a more cohesive, readable way. I would have also liked him to dive deeper into the race issues that he glances over.

    I began in expectation, soon experienced disappointment, found several gems of insight and resonance, and finished with a bit of a shoulder shrug. I'm far from a creative. In fact, you would classify me much more easily as a Burr than a Hamilton: someone who believes in doing all the homework, reducing risk by way of reconnaissance and preparation, and trusting that in the long run hard work will be rewarded - or at very least be its own reward.

I'm far from a creative. In fact, you would classify me much more easily as a Burr than a Hamilton: someone who believes in doing all the homework, reducing risk by way of reconnaissance and preparation, and trusting that in the long run hard work will be rewarded - or at very least be its own reward. I've navigated enough years that I don't really need a book to tell me that's not how life works, but I was hoping to glimpse a bit of inspiration to embrace bold chance. Funnily enough, that's not really what is found here -- though I did pocket some wisdom nonetheless. One lesson that hit me over the head was how in many scenarios the novice will be excited and sunny and fearless, whereas the veteran/professional will be...less so, even the dreaded word jaded, and that weariness or guardedness or whatever might be the underlying cause will undermine any advantage of wisdom or experience. Ouch. These occasional moments of poignancy were appreciated because as a whole the writing flirts with the over-simplistic and trite. Platitudes are not satisfying, and for those who have undergone real struggle, they don't just prick, they grate. My second encounter of this book revealed a branding for a YA audience, which could be either misguided or telling. Certainly there may be interest from that age group due to the author's celebrity, and some of the points about how to navigate failure, success, and the seemingly interminable waits in between have relevance. However, there is no direct address of a younger generation. The short chapters, pithy observations, and uncomplicated prose style might be qualities that were seen to indicate writing for a less sophisticated reader, but I'm not certain those were intentional choices.

    Oh my heart! It's so very fitting that this book survived me walking through a torrential rain downpour from Agnes Scott College all the way back to the Decatur public lot across from Java Monkey, and without an umbrella! The front cover is only very slightly crinkled, but it's in almost mint perfect condition.

It's so very fitting that this book survived me walking through a torrential rain downpour from Agnes Scott College all the way back to the Decatur public lot across from Java Monkey, and without an umbrella! The front cover is only very slightly crinkled, but it's in almost mint perfect condition. It's lucky that I wore a polyester shirt that day. :) But nonetheless, this book is about being a creative soul and a survivor of the harsh rejection that inevitably hits upon anyone who wants to do creative pursuits, whether that be singing, acting, visual arts, or writing. I loved Leslie's honesty about hitting thirty and what that meant for him, and as a thirtysomething myself who also fell in love with RENT as a teenager, I really connected to a lot of his messages. This is a little book, but it really packs a punch and made a big impact on my soul and my heart. Leslie reminded me to minimize distractions, such as social media, and not to give up. He had a way of writing these messages with an inspiring quote and personal anecdotes with each chapter and in ways that were not hackneyed and cliché. This book made me cry twice, especially the last chapter. Leslie reminded me to be brave, to keep pushing for diverse representation, to keep writing, to let my voice be heard, and in short, to be who I am in a world that I sometimes feel tries to push me to conform and to walk the line more than I really want to. I haven't hit Leslie's RENT moment yet, and I don't think I have met my "person" yet, but he makes me believe that both of these things are still to come for me, and that in the meantime, I should push myself to grow creatively, intellectually, and in terms of character. Thank you, Leslie! I have a feeling that if we got to know each other, we'd be friends. <3 Thanks to you, I'm planning to take a Facebook Hiatus this June and part of July, while I work on my own writing. I need to turn off the noice and the distractions, in order to let my creative voice soar.

I would 10/10 recommend this book for anyone who is a fan of Hamilton, Leslie Odom Jr, theatre, or anyone who needs just a little pep talk.

    Inspiring, as always! I can’t decide where to begin...this book is eloquently written in such a way that it matches the message I try to deliver to my kids everyday. I have been a fan of this man since 2009 and he inspires me and my daughter in everything he does. Read the book, use it when you can’t form the words to inspire your kids to chase their dreams. Stay Woke, and #trustthejourney.

    "The thing you love most in the world will love you back." This was the last book I read in 2018 and it was honestly very fitting. It reads as an extended commencement address, and I appreciated every lesson. As a post-grad trying to figure out my next steps in life, this book was great at giving applicable advice and lessons. It was written so poetically and Leslie Odom, Jr.'s voice shone beautifully throughout this tiny book. I would recommend it to anyone in any transition period.

    This book was written to inspire young creative types as a commencement speech would. This book has been a shining light of a reminder: you can acheive what you work for. And it is incredibly effective. I am so glad I got to see him as Burr.

He was charming and humble and smart and funny, and blew the entire room away when he sang a few songs to close out his time with us.

It took me a little bit to get around to reading the book finally (I always take longer to read books I own, no matter how eager or excited I am to get a copy in my hands), and - although he touched on a lot of the things he covers in this book - I struggled with the book. Not because the book is bad. It's well written and sincere. There were plenty of moments I wished Odom would go into just a little more detail about something, or really embrace some of the challenges he faced in his writing, rather than briefly mentioning them and moving on. You can tell how smart he is, and how seriously he takes his work. I obviously loved reading about his experience in Hamilton, though that, too, felt brief. I think what it comes down to is personal preference of a kind. While I love the feeling of being inspired, I don't like inspirational....writing. More often than not it comes across as a little cheesy and over the top for me. Honestly, I can even handle it in person most of the time -- I will reiterate again how Odom touched on a lot of the topics in the book when I saw him talk, as well as in a podcast I listened to where he talks about the book. And I was okay with it there -- there's something about hearing someone say some of those words that reaches me in a way reading the words somehow does not. Again, I'm sure for many this is exactly the kind of thing they like/need. It's just not really for me. I liked gaining a bit more insight into Odom, and the book was a quick enough read, which was nice. I also think he's onto something when he talks about his belief in the Saturn Return...I couldn't help but think about my own "Saturn Return" year probably helped lead me to the place I am in my life today, even if it played out a little more slowly than it did for Odom :)

    What a book! When I picked up this book, I didn't know it was going to bring me closer to what I want most from the world. I had no idea that my heart would find a soft spot for Leslie Odom Jr. as a mentor who doesn't know me.

When I picked up this book, I didn't know it was going to bring me closer to what I want most from the world. I had no idea that my heart would find a soft spot for Leslie Odom Jr. as a mentor who doesn't know me. When I picked up this book, I was not expecting to feel the kind of hope that I feel as I type this review. It's hard to explain this book in logical terms. There's a lot of feeling that goes with it that would be lost in logical breakdowns of the books. Of course, the book is written well structurally. It stays true to its thesis throughout the book, and it is succinct in its purpose. But the charm of it is the emotion it incites from the reader; it's the intimacy of being allowed to look at the highs and lows of somebody's very personal life. All of this plus Leslie's superb penmanship brings a sort of closeness to this book that I've only felt by the presence of close friends. The most valuable part of the book, to me, are the mistakes Leslie has made that I've already been able to learn from: the fear of making mistakes, the disservice of selling ourselves short, the lukewarmness of holding back and not risking things. I would say that this is the perfect book to start off the new year with. It's the book if you're close to success. It's the book if you're stuck in a rut. It's the book to read if you're unsure where to even start on your own journey. It's the book about trying even if you don't want to try anymore.

    Failure is necessary and cannot be spoken upon enough. The greatness of any artist is a resilience of spirit, through which dreams are chased, despite rejections. I knew this would be 5 stars after 20 pages. At 30 pages, I started crying. The thing was I knew Leslie would have some great things to say in a wise, eloquent way and he’s a great inspiration of mine, so I naturally wanted to pick up the book... but little did I know how deeply and personally his story would touch mine.

I knew this would be 5 stars after 20 pages. At 30 pages, I started crying. The thing was I knew Leslie would have some great things to say in a wise, eloquent way and he’s a great inspiration of mine, so I naturally wanted to pick up the book... but little did I know how deeply and personally his story would touch mine. I saw myself in his thoughts and my family in his. Truly, Leslie gave myself and all of his other fans a gift through this book—to be this vulnerable about one’s struggles and triumphs is never easy, especially when you’re well-known. But what a beautiful comfort it is to read the pages of an inspiration’s and trace out the same fears and doubts within my own life and journey as an artist. Personally I am passionate about words and music, but at a transitional time—my last year of college—so many questions linger in the air: most prominently, how do my passions translate into a career? Leslie’s words have brought me great comfort, as I know they will for anyone interested in any art form. Despite unconventionality and uncertainty, Leslie reminds us that the outcomes will be okay. As long as we never tire of chasing dreams, they can be obtained. It’s a small world after all.

There is something about Mr. Odom's heartfelt eloquence that makes me want to read this over and over whenever I find myself sitting on the couch not doing the work to chase my dream, find myself scared of moving forward due to a fear of failure. At times it was so uplifting and so perfectly timed with my journey that it brought me to tears. Listening as an audiobook the clear articulation that makes him so skilled in his singing makes him a superior narrator to even most professional audiobook narrators I have heard. As a bonus for Hamilton fans who have listened to him on repeat, he pulls key phrases from the musical which feel like a smile and a wink just for you. Needless to say, I highly recommend it.
