And I hated Ginsberg's overly accentuated reading. It's a short book but I simply could not get through it. Beware!
i was hoping that this would be a book that outlines some principles of business, advertising, and selling. instead, all it contains is a bunch of anecdotes and small hints on how to improve retail sales.
being in the internet retail business, i found this info to be irrelevant.
i've read many motivational books, and most of them talk about the same concepts: time management, goal setting, win-win situations.
marc allen talks about the same concepts but with a very different tone. right off the bat, he confesses to be a lazy man. he talks through the process by which he had become rich, in spite of his laziness, forgetfulness, and disorganization. he has distilled all the self improvement techniques down to the bare essentials. this was the only way he could make himself follow it, and it is probably the only motivational book that will work out for lazy people.
so, if you are lazy but still want to get rich, this may be the perfect book for you.
The whole point of this book is not the beginning, nor the end, but the journey through the story itself: you get enough insight into Pi's character to believe his emotions and motivations, and the story moves right along across the Pacific.
If anyone gave you a summary of the book you would think it sounds ridiculous: an Indian boy drifts across the Pacific with a Tiger. However, once you start reading, you are ready to suspend any disbelief in the plausibility of that concept. Simply amazing.
