Though I found the book inspirational and motivational, there were a few aspects that bothered me. First was its author’s unhealthy obsession with physical pain – often taking on challenging races or workouts without adequate planning or preparation – which can result in injuries or health issues; admittedly the author acknowledges this risk in his commentary, yet some readers might see him as an inspiring hero without fully grasping all its risks.

Conclusions provide a way for authors to summarize what has been discovered and drawn as conclusions during an essay or article, while at the same time reinforcing its main points and encouraging readers to take further steps after having read it.

The conclusion may begin with an eye-catching hook that helps orient the reader and signifies they have reached the final chapter of a book. It could also close any loops from earlier in the text or tie up loose ends; or introduce new story elements that drive home key concepts and remind readers what they have learned.
