At first glance, I actually thought the book was about mathematics and science. However, I was really surprised and impressed to discover that the book holds philosophical arguments and viewpoints. Talking about the importance of upholding good moral principles and values and adopting some good beliefs as well.

The title of the book did justice to the content. I was blown away by Tony's analogy of the human mind being like a computer, and our emotions are codes that program our minds. We source these codes from the media, peer pressure, our families, and other people we are surrounded by. That made total sense, and it is one of the concepts Tony (in my opinion) nailed right on the head.

I agree. I thought it was about computer coding. I was so impressed by the analogy of the human mind and emotions compared to reprogramming computers through coding. This book brightened my self-esteem and gave me valuable information to apply professionally and personally.

I think the title is perfect for the book and that, together with the cover image, already makes you understand what it's about. I also believe that it is an original choice that clearly distinguishes it from other books of this genre.

I think the title did do the book justice. It really dove deep into what makes a person hide their authentic self and what they can do to bring their "unfakeable" self to the surface.

The title intrigued me so I think it did a good job of making readers curious. This is important if people are to read the book. Getting people to give the book a chance is always the hardest part so I found the title to be perfect in doing this.

Latest Review: Swoosh! Shooting the Perfect Shot by Wajeedah Bilal

Post by Youngreader720-OluwabukunmiWilliamsOso »

In my opinion, the title of a book plays a crucial role in setting the expectations of the readers. A well-crafted title can give readers an idea of what to expect from the book and can help them decide whether or not to invest their time and money in it. In the case of the book in question, I believe that the title did justice to its content.

From my understanding, the book aimed to empower readers by providing them with the necessary tools, knowledge, and information to take control of their lives and improve their overall quality of living. The title of the book seems to reflect this objective accurately. It is concise, informative, and gives readers a clear idea of what they can expect from the book.

I'm honestly not sure. As much as the author presented its main ideas as a "code," I feel a lot of it was too abstract and individual specific for it to be an attainable code for everyone. I also think a lot of people have learned to "fake" thinking like this in order to be successful.

While the content is quite compelling and useful, I do not believe that there is one code that works for everyone. Plus everyone interprets books in their own way. Hence I believe that the title choice could have been slightly better.

I think the title "The Unfakeable Code" could've been so much better because it leads people to believe there is only one right way or only one path. One size doesn't fit all!

Latest Review: Preppers Medical Handbook by William W Forgey

Post by Marissa Maniaci »

That was actually part of what I disliked about this book. The title also led me to believe the book would be strongly based on science and psychology, and this was further supported by the introduction's analogies about computer programming and neurology. As a scientist, I was really hoping for the scientific approach and more step-by-step instructions about what to implement to make desired changes in my life. I was therefore disappointed when a lot of the book was more philosophical and spiritual in nature. I can see how this would be appealing to many readers, it just wasn't what I expected from the book based on the title and description, or what I was really interested in.

The title of the book didn't do justice to it in ay way, shape, or form. The book was more than mathematics and science. The philosophical aspect was neglected while naming the book.

Yes yes. The book sure lives up to the title. Codes are scientific and mathwtixal tools. The book went all out on it.
