I tried to like this book, gave up and tried to just finish it, but I just can't can't - Despite the bit of melodrama, pseudoscience jargons I probably could've finish the listening due to the interesting plot, however the narrator is a different issue. I'm not sure how to describe except that he likes to increase his pitch every few words for no apparent reason. - its really weird and hard to describe- its like someone constantly getting excited for no reason - I would've rather an automated computer read it to be frank.
What a fun book to read. Plot was funny and narration was awesome. Once in awhile its nice to read something where you don't have to worry about every twist and turn. This is just a fun ride without much stress which is nice break sometimes!
Thought it was going to be some boring history book about computers and was pleasantly surprise. Stories were amazing and I find myself inspired, intrigued and learn a bit of history along the way. Better than even a novel. Sometimes you read things like Wozniac's biography or Steve Jobs when they talked about Atari, or how Gates talk about how he bought DOS but you are left wondering so how did this all fit in? Reading this book fills in those gaps and things start to make more sense and you get a better appreciation of all the components and people involved. great book - can't say enough about this. Read it enjoy it. I envy your first time...its that good.
Maybe, but I would need to skip a lot of non sensical hype & pump that comes with it.
This book is good & important. BUT you need to get over the first few chapters as well as all the 80 style pump - this might work for some but a complete turn off for others - even the cover its a bit of a cringe. However there are a lot of information here that will help many. Some has mention that these information are already out there like, first rule, millionaire next door, snowball, etc, however I feel that this book offers a bit more information, case in point, first rule does not talk about annuities. The prinicple in this is book can be boil down to f ew concepts. 1. power of compounding. 2. thus every dollar save can be used to grow. 3. save money easier by paying yourself first. 4. buy an index, eg etf since most fund manager under performance the market 5. fees and ta can significantly reduce your nest egg. Also last section with the interviews are a gem, kinda like market wizards but with more practical questions. Moreover, I thought the narration was good and it was a bit of relief to only have Robbins talk the first and last chapters. So buy this book, take notes and try not to let the pump, ironically, discourage you from going forward.
Exciting. Mysterious. Intriguing.
Has a Harry Potter feel to it but with a whole different story line and magic.
I can tell which character it is by his performance.
Its so good I wanted to savor it slowly.
Must read - probably my favorite from this author and that is saying a lot considering his many other great novels.
