This book came highly recommended by a person on a podcast I listened to recently, so I decided to purchase this book. I was really disappointed after the first 40 minutes or so. The author was vulgar and shallow. There wasn't any meat or foundation to base the book. The author doesn't have a grasp of where wealth and satisfaction originates nor how things work in the world.
I could do without the vulgarity and shallow thought process.
I was really disappointed. I must say that I read alot (more than a dozen books a year). Over the past ten years or so I haven't had to quit reading a book before finishing it because it was so weak and vulgar, but I had to put this one down and move on before finishing it. I was hoping it would turn the corner (based on the reviews I read), but there wasn't any wisdom or meat provided. Only vulgar thoughts, language and living.
a valid approach to starting a business
I like the fact that he emphasized another route to starting a business. Most people think you just need an idea, then get a bunch a money from an angel, investor or bank (selling part of your non-existent company or going into debt), then you hit it big. The approach in the book is much more realistic. Start something small, grow it and self fund your growth.
The story telling was inspiring and well done.
The most moving point was the story of the guy that had the solid successful job, then was suddenly laid off and accidentally fell into his own business by just getting involved with something.
