    What did you love best about The First 20 Hours?

    The book is informative, instructive, and true to the author's intent. In the first 6 chapters, which is only 20% of the way through the book, you will learn everything you need. The remainder of the book reinforces these teachings with real examples, one which I'm sure will enlighten you, as it has enlightened and validated me.

    The 6 stories which reinforce the key teaching of the book.


    What about Josh Kaufman’s performance did you like?

    What insight do you think you’ll apply from The First 20 Hours?

    Everyone wants to be an influencer. We all want to learn how to help ourselves and others change behavior. And yet, in spite of the fact that we routinely attempt to do everything from lose weight to improve quality at work, few of us have more than one or two ideas about how to exert influence. For the first time, Influencer brings together the breakthrough strategies of contemporary influence masters.

    Ahmed says: "Not the book for everyone"
    "Solid book, much more a resource than just a book"

    The many stories used to illustrate the theme of the book.

    The guinea worm is no more. How amazing is that, in such a short amount of time?


    What did you learn from Influencer that you would use in your daily life?

    Influence is not a hammer, it is not direct. It is focused energy, trial and error, goal minded success.
