Readers familiar with Hardwick’s gig years ago on MTV’s Singled Out and his work more recently on Nerdist.com and G4TV’s Web Soup might appreciate this effort at self-help for the masses. He wants to get people to “know more about who are, why should be comfortable with that, and how to leverage those attributes into getting the things want…Oh, and achieving happiness. That’s kind of a big one, too.” Those new to Hardwick’s world, however, will neither be impressed with what he says or how he says it: the narrative is not compelling, and he tends to ramble. Discussion is divided into three broad categories: mind, body, and time. Chapters cover workout routines, healthy eating, and amusing cartoon bears weightlifting and stretching. Sections on time management and personal finance are similarly superficial. A personality-driven endeavor aimed at a built-in audience, his recommendations are straightforward without offering anything new or profound. (Nov.) Agency: Foundry
