    Keller Williams' The Millionaire Real Estate Investor is your handbook to the tried and true financial wealth-building vehicle that rewards patience and perseverance and is available to all: real estate.

    You'll learn about the myths about money and investing that hold people back and how to develop the mindset of a millionaire investor; how to develop sound criteria for identifying great real-estate investment opportunities; and more.

    Overall

    Okay ... if you really look, there are a couple of decent ideas in the book. However, you have to get through some of the most b-a-s-i-c and elementary information to find that occasional bit of advice you can use.

    Easy to write the book during the real estate boom (2000-2006). However, NOTHING about how to become 'a millionaire investor' during tougher times. Kinda like directing freeway traffic int he direction its already moving in.

    Good (yawn) Luck!

    There are plenty of normal, decent women out there. This book isn't about them. This book is intended for the men who worked steadily over the last 20-plus years, helped their wives raise the kids, attended all their plays and sporting events, mowed the lawn, took out the garbage, fixed the sink, were patient and understanding during that "time of the month", and fully expected to be married for the rest of their lives. Then out of nowhere, the women they'd loved, honored, and cherished for the last two-plus decades couldn't stand the sight of them....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely a 'Must Read' if you're a guy (of ANY age) who is or has divorced. If you're still 'hoping' to reconcile or even 'unresolved' if the divorce has been filed or finalized, then give this book a try. It's like have five or six sessions with a therapist ... an excellent running-head-start on the road to recovery, healing and moving on!


    What did you learn from Divorce: The Middle-Aged Man's Survival Guide that you would use in your daily life?

    This book is like talking to that close friend you never had and who walked down that painful and lonely road. No BS here - just a very real look at divorce from the man's view point.


    Any additional comments?

    The quality of the recording is not the best - however, the content more than makes up for it.

    Extreme success, by definition, lies beyond the realm of normal action. If you want to achieve extreme success, you can’t operate like everybody else and settle for mediocrity. You need to remove luck and chance from your business equation, and lock in massive success. The 10X Rule shows you how!

    Great book and great ideas, Grant! Thank you ....

    He's got the biggest personality in business. His trademark line "You're fired" from The Apprentice is one of America's most recognizable catchphrases. He's survived the biggest real-estate bankruptcy in history and climbed his way back to the top. He's Donald J. Trump, and he's going to tell listeners the secrets to succeeding like he has in Think BIG and Kick Ass in Business and Life. His co-author is Bill Zanker, CEO of the Learning Annex, which he started with $5,000 in Bar Mitzvah money.

    "A MUST Read!"

    Do you want to be more successful? Well, there isn't a better teacher than Mr. Trump. His book is funny AND informative. Where else can you get into the head of a Billionaire (who wants to share his successes with you)?

    This book is HOT! (Or you can just continue to be a loser)

  • Why We Want You to Be Rich: Two Men, One Message

    Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki are both concerned. Their concern is that the rich are getting richer, but America is getting poorer. The entitlement mentality is epidemic, creating people who expect their country, employer, or family to take care of them. And like the polar ice caps, the middle class is disappearing. America is becoming a two-class society, and soon you will be either rich or poor. Trump and Kiyosaki want you to be rich.

    Warren says: "Dubious content lacks substance"
    "An Important Insight into Wealth!"
    Overall

    For those who want to be rich(er), this is a Must-Listen-To book. Why? It's a great insight into how the wealthy people think & act.

    I've read / listened to all of Robert Kiyosaki's books and yet, this is an important book. Don't be complacent - move your mind forward by listening to their view points!

    All the best!

    In his #1 New York Times best seller, Bias, Emmy Award-winning journalist Bernard Goldberg created a national firestorm when he exposed the liberal biases of the so-called mainstream media. Now, in his new blockbuster, Goldberg goes even further. He not only takes on Big Journalism, but offers a twelve-step program to help the media elites overcome their addiction to bias.

    Thanks for writing this important book! You've written what I've felt for years - that there is Arrogance in the news rooms around the country ... that they have to 'think for us', 'cause we're too stupid to figure it out on our own.

    Should be required reading for all ...

    The real war on terror has happened largely behind closed doors, run by the White House, drawing on secret intelligence and operations around the world. There is no man who knows more about it than Richard Clarke, the former Counterterrorism Czar for both George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, the man who has led our efforts against al Qaeda and all other terrorist enemies for years.

    Paul Michael says: "Your Government At Work"
    "Should be 'No Stars' ..."
    Overall

    A very transparent and one-sided recreation of reality. Read it and you'll want ... no demand ... your money back. (Unless you're a Dean-i-ac). The book let's Clinton off the hook for 8 years of 'fighting terrorism' and lays the blame squarely on the Bush. Even if you're a Democrat, you cannot believe this guy's story. Simply amazing that he can offer this 'piece' as any type of fact ... and do it with a straight face.

    Hope he enjoys his royalites!
