SYNOPSIS / The Book

Dave Hollis, CEO of the Hollis Co. and husband of #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Hollis, refutes the lies many men believe but don't talk about, topples the phony ideas about what "real men" do, and points the way for men to finally start living the best versions of their lives.

When Rachel Hollis began writing the #1 New York Times bestseller Girl, Wash Your Face, her husband Dave bristled at her transparency about her self-deceptions. Then he had a revelation: women aren't the only ones who believe lies. Men also buy into a host of lies that keep them from reaching their potential--and do so against ingrained ideas about how "real men" should or shouldn't act, reach for help, or show up.

Dave knows this personally. He believed all the lies, too, and found himself stuck in a rut, waking up unmotivated, unfulfilled, and a version of himself that he didn't like. Then, he began to wake up. In his new book, he talks honestly about topics men aren't normally honest about--his impulse to solve instead of listen, his struggle to accept help or admit he needs it, even his insecurities about being a dad. Unpacking the untruths he once believed, he reveals how those lies held him back and outlines the tools that helped him change his life. Offering encouragement, challenge, and a hundred moments to laugh at himself, Dave points the way for others to drop bogus ideas and finally start living the best versions of their lives too.

“In his compelling new book, my friend Dave Hollis shares his path to change with candor, humor and humility in a way that will inspire you to take charge, change your habits, and lay a foundation for living the life you always dreamed of.”

Lewis Howes, New York Times bestselling author and host of The School of Greatness 

“Dave’s first book is vulnerable, authentic, and earnest, written from the perspective of a friend on the journey with you. What started as a collection of stories to illustrate the masculine point of view turned into something that will help both men and women struggling to reach for more."

Rachel Hollis, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“Dave Hollis packages his own vulnerability in an impactful but fun way to empower readers. This is a wise, introspective, and purposeful guide to anyone looking to break free of fear, ego, and blame.”

Mike Bayer author of the New York Times bestseller Best Self: Be You Only Better and life coach on the Dr. Phil Show

“In this life-transforming book, Dave Hollis inspires us to take a good hard look at the lies we tell ourselves and flip them into reasons for real growth. It’s a witty, vulnerable, and truly thought-provoking work from a skeptic who became brave enough to change. A must-read in personal development.”

Brendon Burchard, #1 New York Times bestselling author and CEO of Growth.com

“I love Dave for a million reasons, but one is because I relate to him. I get the impulse to side-eye the whole personal development movement from a comfy perch on my couch like a real Sideline Critic. So his straightforward, funny advice on how to get out of that self-defeating rut hits me right between the eyes. This book is for anyone who wants to figure out how to start showing up for their life.”

Jen Hatmaker, New York Times bestselling author of For the Love and Of Mess and Moxie and host of the For the Love podcast

 

“To improve you have to confront yourself and your ways of thinking. Dave Hollis’s book is an important guide for any man—and woman—who wants a better life.”

Ryan Holiday, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Stillness Is the Key

 

“In Get Out of Your Own Way, my friend Dave has identified an important truth: believing certain lies about ourselves keeps us skeptical that we can ever change the trajectory of our lives. Thank goodness in this great book Dave also shares with us the tools that helped him change his own life so you can change yours too.”

John C. Maxwell, New York Times bestselling author and leadership expert
