Life is short, too short. In the grand scheme of the universe, you only have half a second to live - half a second to pursue your dreams, live fully, and succeed. You don’t have a moment to lose.

Truthful and hard hitting. Life in Half a Second is the first 'fact–based' formula for achieving success in life and business. Proven through thousands of studies and decades of research, it presents the five doors you must walk through to achieve success in your career, business, or personal life.
Gimmicks, mind tricks, fairy tales, and wishful thinking NOT INCLUDED. Just facts.

'The smallest of human beings can achieve the greatest of deeds – Life in Half a Second provides interesting ideas on how it's done.'
Lech Walesa, former President of Poland and Nobel Peace Prize winner

'Life in Half a Second is a powerful book in every way. Read the first chapter to see what I mean.'
- Andrew Griffiths, International Best Selling Author

I have not only read Matthews book, but bought several copies for friends and colleagues.
Having been in business for 10 years I have read many, many business texts from the famous to the quirky, from each one I try to glean at least one point of value, with 'Life in half a second' I had achieved this goal before I had finished the introduction!
After much though and background research Matthew has observed and verified 5 doors that must be stepped through on the journey to achievement. Whilst no one and no challenge is identical these doors must still be stepped through, simply understanding this will increase the chances of success.
As a bonus Matthew has a brief and informal style that makes the book very readable and openly mixes together outrageous commercial goals with the much more modest and personal.
I recommend that you read the book with an open mind and start taking the actions Matthew has himself taken on his path to his success.

      I haven't finished reading this book yet but like it so much I bought another and sent it to my son. It is a book you should read through then read again, this time doing as you read.

        I bought this book after attending one of Matthew's speeches. The book does not disappoint - it is engaging and easy to understand. I would recommend it to anyone that needs to a bit of push or a gentle reminder that life is too short to be wasted!

                      I saw Matthew speak, got my hands on a copy of this book, and for the first time in such a long time, I could not put it down. The incredible thing about the author (and this book) is that he doesn't have anything to prove, is exceptionally accomplished, is not attending the opening of an envelope or exhausting the speaker circuit trying to push his message; because he doesn't need to,. Instead, he is trying to connect with the gamechangers who want to make a positive difference and not just $$$. His message will resonate with those who want to create an impact so it will benefit others, not so they can retire to an island and disconnect from the world. This book is a gift. Read it, reset, and live your truth.
