1st off, it was short. I listened at 3 times the speed, went for a drive, and had finished to book by the time i got back home. Every bit of this book was to the point.
To me, it blew away the 4 hour work week, because it was not about hiring virtual assistants and skipping emails. It was about building a company that is truly better without you. Building systems and inspecting what you expect.
I liked it a lot. At 3x speed he sounded very clear.
The business is better off without me working in it.
I'd love to chat with the author, Scott Fritz
Yea, It's short and is a quick review on what Growth Hacking is.
No moments particularly moved me. It was pretty straight forward.
This book is great for people who are new to Growth Hacking. I felt it was a good breakdown, but I'm not sure i learned anything new.
Also, though Ryan Holiday did a good job, you can tell that he's relatively new to the growth hacking world and is piggy-backing off the success of his last book which is related more to his actual experiences.
Looking back, I can actually "see" the creation of twitter and the personality and growth of its founders. Biz did an incredible job of writing the story in such a way that you feel like you're there, growing with the team.
I think Biz was my favorite character because he's so logical, easy going, and straight forward. In a sea of extreme personalities, Biz was the most centered.
At the same time, Jack Dorsey was interesting, but not as easy to like.
Watching Jack Dorsey's transformation from Geeky Punk Kid to extremely successful Steve Jobs wannabe was incredibly interesting.
Listening to this book is like uploading yourself into the making of Twitter.
I felt that i really comprehended and visualized the entire auto-biography. However, It was a really enjoyable listen, and i feel the lessons and experiences will have newfound effects on me as I age and grow over time.
I liked how real David is. He says it like it is. He doesn't try to sugar coat or make things a big deal. He just tells you his story the way he remembers it.
When I first started reading the book a couple years ago, I completely stopped after one of the 1st few chapters. The chapter referenced David's ability to have Perfect Pitch. He could hear a note on the piano and know exactly what it was.
After reading that, i vowed to learn perfect pitch and start reading again once i've figured it out.
I haven't mastered perfect pitch yet, but I did come up with a new device that can train perfect pitch, and now i just need to prototype it.
After coming up with the idea for "Pitch Blocks", I listened to the book from start to finish in just a couple sittings. It gave me all the inspiration i needed to finish building my concept and start training myself to have perfect pitch.
You listen with your eyes closed. There is no print version
I would compare this to any other night time hypnosis program. However, I love that it's part of my audible collection and counts toward my audible stats.
I have 6 or 7 of Joel's sleep systems and his performance is perfect. For the 1st time ever, i can go to sleep when I choose and now that i'll be sleeping within no time. His voice is just right and the background music kicks in at just the right moments with just the right vibes
It made me sleep! It helped me to go out and buyer a juicer the next day. It helped me to change my eating habits and interest in my overall health.
Peter does a tremendous job of introducing futuristic new markets in an incredibly simple to understand way. Using a series of examples, he properly crafts a narrative that helps you understand exactly how the future is getting better.
I got to learn about a wide range of technologies and concepts all within one book. Over population, computers, water scarcity and purification, genomics, quality of life, life expectancy etc. etc. etc.

I look forward to visiting Singularity University
