Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Thinking Outside the Boombox is a work of non-fiction in the self-help and guidance sub-genre, and was penned by author Justin ‘The Juse’ Ellis. The work is written for mature young adults and upwards due to its philosophical content and the use of some explicit language in the explanation of this very modern philosophy. Six highly accessible chapters take us through the conceptual framework of Ellis’s guide to life, presenting different thinking points on concepts from everyday life. These challenge us, the reader, to change our perspective on how we think and feel as we approach our lives, with space to make notes on how those reflections may affect our future actions.

Author Justin ‘The Juse’ Ellis presents an easy to digest philosophy for the modern age which touches both the heart and mind on every one of its well-thought-out pages. I like the short-form presentation format, which does not directly preach ideas but leaves readers to discuss and digest the truths that the author sets forward. There are valuable considerations here and they are made without any assumption of readers’ backgrounds or experiences, indeed that part is left to us to connect with. It is a work that asks a lot of its readers, free of the quick fixes and false promises of old fashioned self-help guidebooks, and it is therefore highly valuable for those truly committed to change. Overall, I would recommend Thinking Outside the Boombox as an interactive and inspirational self-help read.
