This book will make any programmer who's worked on professional projects realize if he or she didn't know already... you are not alone. This book "gets it." and gets it in a way that's entertaining for the most part and gives just enough detail to make sense even to the non-programmer.
The slid in explanations of computer science concepts as they pertain to the story.
His voice is a little harsh sometimes. He wouldn't be a good smooth jazz dj let's just say.
Well I haven't got through the first half of it, but it's driving me nuts. If I hear the words "App Millionaire" one more time... I'm only dissappointed you can't throw an audiobook across the room like you can a regular book. It reads like a bad info-mercial "You too can be an app millionaire but it takes hard work and be organized...bla bla bla... If you're that kind of person you can be an app millionaire (tm)...
That far into the book and literally NOTHING that will actually help you start a business based on mobile applications.
Less fluff and more meat. And stop saying "App Millionaire." It's not a witty catch-phrase. After the first 20 times or so... It's like fingernails on a chalk board.
I don't care about your dad's business. I don't care about how you moved from construction contracting to application development. --actually I might be interested in "how" but so far all I'm hearing is "that" you did. I don't need to know what apps are, or that they're "revolutionary" beyond a really short introduction paragraph.
So far the only "how" you have in the first third of the book is that you drew out on paper what you wanted your first app to do then hired someone to make it. Gee I would have never thought of that!
What I DID want to know was something that would help me with ideas I might not have thought of... not "be organized" and "work hard" with long drawn out anecdotes to support those obvious-isms.
I find the book patronizing and devoid of any real substance with the words "App Millionaire" thrown in ad nauseum. Now maybe the details are in the last half of the book but I honestly can't get through the first half, I'm sorry.
Very well spoken.
The words or sentences containing "App Millionaire"
The reading was good. But this kind of patronizing "self-help" book is just not useful to me.
