Use modern examples, modern English not 50's grandpa English, use modern actionable examples.
NO. The train has left the station.
There are so many pep talk books out there; ugh. I think "rich" all the time. I don't need someone to tell me again to have "faith" and an "unwavering vision"; I have one.
I don't need long examples to make a point, a short concise one will do. I need practical and actionable tactics to get stuff done.
Some of the tactics in this book are retarded. The douche bag who needs a trainer at the gym will like this book. The self motivated do not need this book.
The writing style in this book also sucks. Think of the guy you once met who wants to look smart and uses big words when a small one will do; I wanted to kill myself listening to him.
I want to get an Audible membership to return cruddy books like this. I want to barf now.
the author goes into such detail to prove a point you forget what point he is trying to prove. the points are great once you get past 10 pages of a story to prove point 1 paragraph long.
It sounded like the performer was recording a live "life improvement" or "get rich quick" seminar. While I appreciate passion and energy, I do not need to be yelled at for 9 hours by an audiobook.
When we pick up a book from someone who has done undoubtedly good work researching successful people, We have already paid for it. While it is standard for such books to toot their own horn to draw the reader in, this book took it way into the obnoxious, repeatedly alluding to how life altering and amazing the things it will reveal to the reader will be. This took up seemingly the first hour and was richly augmented in every chapter. Rather than drawing the reader in, it turned the reader away, and contributed to an unnecessary length. We would all be appreciative if the book got to the point without stopping and reiterating how amazing the attributes are every step along the way. I would not begrudge paying the same price for the same content in a shorter form without all the fluff.
Sad that in the effort to fill out a length with fluff and self promotion, the author completely killed any desire to actually learn about the undoubtedly good work and research that the author has done.
