It’s How You Think: Uncut is a work of non-fiction in the biography genre. It is suitable for the general non-fiction readership and was written by author Leon Stensholm. The book recalls the author’s difficult journey through his athletic career, beginning with a promising start in soccer ending prematurely due to injuries, through to the author’s start in bodybuilding and the death of his brother. What follows is a grueling journey through some of the most fiercely competitive bodybuilding contests in the world, with no guarantee of victory, and a constant strain on the author’s body and mind throughout.
It’s How You Think: Uncut is a powerful tale of Stensholm’s ability to not only overcome adversity but to thrive from doing so. One of the things that I liked the most about this book was its overall message of hope and the idea that you have the ability to create positive change in your life, regardless of any external factors. Author Leon Stensholm does a magnificent job of telling a deeply personal story in a way that is easy to connect with and relate to regardless of your own experiences. Although this is a biography as opposed to a self-help book, reading about others’ own experiences will still be sure to give hints and courage to help readers improve their own lives. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend this book to those who are facing or have faced adversity in their own lives, or those looking for a true life drama with harrowing and uplifting elements.
