Forbes calls this book one of seven books that all entrepreneurs must hear right now (along with Peter Thiel's book and The 7 Habits of Highly Successful People).
In this book you will learn how to get a meeting with anyone. You will learn how to take your career to the next level. You will learn how to reinvent yourself in ways that you never thought was possible! Chris Haroun has had the opportunity in his career to meet with the top CEOs, entrepreneurs and investors in the world, including Warren Buffett, Bill Gates and the CEOs of most large technology companies. This book is an amalgamation of business advice that Chris has compiled from his many meetings with successful business people over the past two decades as well as observations of why brilliant entrepreneurs like Steve Jobs or Mark Zuckerberg have become incredibly successful. Business schools do a good job of providing students with theoretical and practical frameworks that can be applicable to real world problems but business schools often miss teaching students some of the most crucial business lessons like how to network or how to find customers or how to get a job!

Such a great book! I was totally pulled into the book and listened it all of it in one sitting. I stopped it many times and repeated certain lines that stuck out to me. I took notes and really enjoyed the concept of hire slowly and fire quickly. Thanks Chris! I also purchased his MBA program and I am excited to get started on that.
Enlightening. Enjoyable. Engaging
Chris Haroun. The author delivers as promised, and he promised a lot! Chris' narration keeps your interest and stimulates your curiosity for the next concept.
This belongs in every business person's "go-to" stash of iconic books for success and living your passion.
Chris' enthusiasm and passion for your success can't help but come through in his narration. I couldn't wait to try his ideas as quickly as I could.
Looking forward to Chris' next book. Get this one, share the ideas and put them to use with your friends and colleagues.
I learnt a lot of tips to career success and these would advise my next career path..
The tips were good but not very in-depth. The whole thing sounded more like an advertisement for Mr Haroun's Udemy courses. He repeatedly told the listener to go to Udemy and search for his name to find companion classes for the topic he had just briefed upon.
I would recommend it but only if it was cheap.
He did a good job at narrating and making it interesting to listen to. He needs to do some better editing though. He had a few mistakes that he corrected while speaking but it would have been better to do another take and edit out the mistakes completely.
No. It is just a list of 101 topics.
The book gave a good overview of some great business tips. It also did so succinctly without wasting my time. Some tips did seem to be filler content just so the author could reach "101" tips.
The content was good but the constant references to his online courses were irritating. If it weren't for these constant "plugs" I would likely be interested in seeking out the author's other offerings but listening to these plugs was like having commercials in a book which was frustrating.
Chris does a great job at summarizing his career and business lessons in 101 short and engaging stories. Besides, his own narration adds a diction only the author can offer to his writing.
The lessons are practical and straight to the point business advices, highly recommended audiobook for (young) career-focused professionals
