This is the first audiobook I listened to from Audible. I wanted to buy a book, but it is like 30% more expensive than Amazon price, in my country.
So I decided to buy an audiobook.
First thing..I'm going to buy the book anyway. It's just amazing. That energy, true energy (since I've watched Gary for some time now) really makes you get of that couch, dream big and get to work.
Well done, I highly recommend it, Gary also does a lot of "off the script" talk.
Gary made it guys! There is no doubt in my mind that this is one of the best books of my life.
This book is so honest with us that you feel the need for change...
Personal Branding at its best, go for it.
Listened to this after reading the hardcover version and found this one suits Gary's style much more than print. His energy and off-the-cuff comments (what he calls offscript) are worth the listen even if you've read the book already.
Only complaint? It's too short!!!
This is an absolute must have. For those of you who purchased the print version, you ain't heard nothin' yet. In this (unabridged) audio copy, Gary includes bonus material not available in the print version. This is by far the best money I've ever spent on a book.
I listened to this book last night and then again with notebook in hand and I am slammed with inspiration to not only get going but more importantly with real tools to do it! With so many of these 'types' of books (and I have listened to MANY) there is a 'link' to then buy the actual how-to's to recreate what the author is trying to get across. Gary GIVES you hard and fast info, lessons, advise and a thump on the head to DO IT. He doesn't sugar coat anything! Straight from the get-go he tells it like it is---have patience and 'hustle' your butt if you truly have a passion and want to make it your life-'work'. Great resources! This book has it all and/or tells you where to find info to get started NOW. I thought maybe it wouldn't have so much being the length it is but don't be fooled--get this book!
I'm a social networking idiot, and Gary has put it into perspective. I understand the basics of social networking, but haven't done it like he has. I'm going to use his experience, instead of re-inventing the wheel.
If you've never heard Gary give a keynote or speech you should pull up Google now and do a search. Gary has so much energy he puts into his talks that when I heard he was doing the reading for this book I knew it was one I would be buying.
Gary offers advice and information in this book that is not like others. Some of the books similar to this make it seem like its easy to just jump in and become rich or successful. Gary lets you know that you have to work for it and "sweat", but since it is your passion you are doing it should be something you enjoy. I've always felt that I could never be happy doing something that I was not passionate about. With Gary's words and encouragement from this book (and his keynotes, speeches, vlogs) I know that I can take my passion(s) and turn them into a career that I will love and be successful at.
With that I definitely recommend this book to anyone who is working at job they hate or want to start doing something that they are passionate about. Or if you just want to hear Gary's motivating energy each day to make you feel like you can concur anything.
The message of the book is good, I just had a real problem with the author (since he read the book), he annoyed the heck out of me.
Of the three (written book, vook, and audio book), I liked the audio the best (even though I am in the Vook). Gary does a great job of making the words come to life with a passion that few can deliver. He also "goes off script" to not only update what is going on currently, but also to elaborate on the things most commonly asked about on his book tour. Without a doubt this is something I will learn from over and over again.
