Great book. It does a good job delivering on its promise: it covers WHY things go viral and how to create stuff that does. If you do any marketing or PR, get it.
Great book. Rory is a no-nonsense guy and he covers a lot in this book - if you have already read a bunch of motivational books and find most of them shallow and repetitive, regurgitating the same anecdotes and smart catchphrases, here is someone fresh, original, with substance that will help you become a better person. Would recommend him any day over the well known motivational "gurus" who speak a lot but say little. Cory is the real deal.
I almost didn't buy it because of the bad reviews, but after having listened to it, I am glad I did. There might not be a lot of new stuff for you in it if you already read other books from Seth, but if this is your first book about "tribes", it is well worth listening to. Seth has a very sharp eye for connecting dots and can explain them in a way that can shift your thinking. If you want to know how to create your own 'tribe" of followers, this is a good primer on the subject.
Once you have read the title, you got most of the substance.
Summary of this book:
1. Multitasking is not efficient. It's a myth.
2. If you want to be more efficient, eliminate interruptions and do one thing at a time.
That's it. If you expect more, unfortunately you won't find it here, so I just saved you the price of the book.
If you are an entrepreneur, especially if you are in the software/web development or a similar area, this book is a must read. It lives up to its promise and gives you a rare insight, packed with details, into the incredible story and inner workings of Google, how and why they got to where they are today. There are many valuable lessons in this book - if you are working on building a successful business, it is a good investment of your time to listen to this audiobook.
A true classic, and a really, really great book about what makes the world work and how to keep it going. You may or may not agree with everything Ayn Rand believed (I don't agree with EVERYTHING, but I agree with the basic tenets of the book). The narrator is incredibly good - actually, this is the best performed audiobook I have ever listened to (and I listened to a lot of them). The characters come to life - you feel like you are right there, part of the story. Couldn't put it down. There are different versions of this audiobook by different performers - GET THIS ONE.
