This is a must read if you are considering starting your own company, period. It takes you through the lives of some very successful people and provides what I would like to call a mini Harvard Business School Lesson in a box.
I would rate it up there with "Think and Grow Rich" as far as motivation and in a category of its own in the application of what the author lays out.
Live like you were dying.
I am reading it again, this is a great well written book. James has the ability to take a lot of what I have pieced together over the last few years, organize it, put facts behind it and turn it into a picture that all can see. If you have wondered why this market turnaround has not really turned you around, then pick this up.
Another great book to read in conjunction with this is Flash Boys, by Michael Lewis, and A Primer on Money, Banking, and Gold (Unabridged) by Peter L Bernstein. The Flash Boys book will explain some of the complexity that is going on that even most of the wall street bankers are just figuring out, and A Primer on Money, Banking and Gold will give you a historical context so that you understand that just because it has always(at least in your life time) been like this does not mean that it always will be like this.
he is hands down in my top 3, if not my top one favorite performers here on audible.
yes, unfortunately, sleeping, eating, and this nasty habit of going to work got in the way.
Really people, you need to read this, if you plan on living for more than just a few more years, you are probably going to witness one of the most interesting events in modern human history. I really think most people will be shock by it, but if you read this and some of the other books that I listed here, you will at least be aware it is coming, and possibly prepared, for the chaos that ensues after it happens.
The plot line is fantastic, the story always keeps moving, and it is narrated very well.
The suspense is great the detail is realistic and there are always a few turns you don't see coming.
Can't beat Dick Hill, his voice is the perfect narration for JWR's story
This book is a special treat and I would listen to it again all in one sitting. I usually listen on my way to and from work. Must admit I may have taken a little longer lunch last week while listening to it.
pay attention to the details, this is the whole point of the book.
Sorry, I have to agree with the other review here. I hope the invisible committee becomes the silent committee.
