Mr. Guillebeau has selected a wonderful title for his book but that's about it. The content is just not there so instead he repeats himself endlessly, it's really depressing. It goes somehting like this, "Sally gave up her job which she hated and began doing something that she loves but she didn't spend any money doing it...now she's a big success." Just repeat that to yourself 20 times and change the name with each repitition and you have basicly read the book.
My question is who is writting these glowing reviews and why do they all sound so suspiciously similiar? I really can't believe that anyone who didn't fall off the back of a turnup truick yesterday truely found this book to be a "good read, inspirational, or actionable".
There were stroies told my many people but they were all the same story.
I am angry that this man has stuffed the reviews of his rediculous book with slanted empty headed and obviously false commentary.
Sorry, I can't agree with the other reviewer. I found the narrator to be almost as angry and contemptuous as the author. I love the subject and could have endured if I was getting something new and insightful but alas.
This book does not belong in the business section. Admittedly, I was only able to struggle through the first third of the book, but it so poorly written that the pain became unbearable.
When I read for business, I want the information to be short, punchy, and illuminating. This book strives to be a novel but lacks any of the prerequisite elements of a good tale.
