Was this an actual person? It sounds like spoken by a computer at 100 mph
This book is all the way up there among the very best. A bit too much stuff have been added to the original story. Some good, some bad and some long winded.
The death of his daughter. Hearing a father break down, as he reads it, over the loss of a child is just too much to handle. I couldn't continue the book after that. It's just too hard.
An absolutely brilliant book even to this European who's never thrown nor catched a single baseball.
The sheer amount of knowledge, insight and experience is just amazing. At the same time it's all delivered in an easy conversational style and explained so well that it all seems obvious. Trust me it's not obvious. The book's just that good at explaining things.
Too many to mention. Lots of personal mistakes, lessons, corrections and eventual successes. "Here's how I blew up a 30M$ company due to a passion for risk taking"
Channels the author perfectly. It all comes across as if the narrator actually experienced this stuff.
Essential for entrepreneurs. Just get it. Best book I've heard/read in years.
Much much shorter. The message of the book can be articulated in one or two sentences. The rest is filler.
A classic work from a successful marketing professional. Shallow, self congratulatory and filled with fluff.
