    In The First 20 Hours, Josh Kaufman offers a systematic approach to rapid skill acquisition: how to learn any new skill as quickly as possible. His method shows you how to deconstruct complex skills, maximize productive practice, and remove common learning barriers. By completing just 20 hours of focused, deliberate practice you'll go from knowing absolutely nothing to performing noticeably well. What do you want to learn?

    What disappointed you about The First 20 Hours?

    All the examples he gave were boring as s#!t. If you are planning on doing any of his examples, then you will love it. If you're not planning on it, then it is a waste of time.


    Has The First 20 Hours turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, just turned me off from other books from the author.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    This book has great potential, but in reality it sucks (only the first 45 minutes are worth listening to).


    Any additional comments?

    I hope Josh reads his customers comments and takes their suggestions into account for this next book.

  • Built to Sell: Creating a Business That Can Thrive Without You

    A business parable about how to create a start-up that won't trap you when you want to sell it. According to John Warrillow, the number one mistake entrepreneurs make is to build a business that relies too heavily on them. Thus, when the time comes to sell, buyers aren't confident that the company-even if it's profitable-can stand on its own. To illustrate this, Warrillow introduces us to a fictional small business owner named Alex who is struggling to sell his advertising agency.

    The content of the book was great; however the narration of the book was god-aweful. If bad narration were people, Erik Synnestvedt would be China!

    Built to Sell was built for reading...not built for audio.
