    Story
    "This is a book you never ever need to read"
    Has If You're Not First, You're Last turned you off from other books in this genre?

    This is a a-typical self-help book that keeps repeating that it will show you "the good stuff", "how to make money", "I will tell you how I...X" - but *never* does.
    The narrator is going on how extremely successful he is without ever telling you why, just that he is and that he did it by being persistent in doing. Well - that is not something you need to read a book about.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Grant Cardone?

    yes, but I guess no one but the author was willing to record this book.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    Don't buy this book.

    Yes.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Yes. Had a difficult time understanding where he was going.

    Waste of time.

    Story
    "Nothing new sales advice packaged in a long story"
    Would you try another book from Grant Cardone and/or Grant Cardone?

    Interesting title but disappointing sales advice and very long winded. Grant provides the usual sales ideas and the few good points he makes come at the price of having to endure the entire book.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Shorten the entire thing by 50%.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment, I look for 5-10 ideas whether they are new or a reminder of what I should be doing.
    I don’t feel I good any out of this one. The book is too long winded.

    I'm a landscape architect by profession and an avid listener of audio books ! I particularly love the historical based fiction series, like Courteney, McCammon, and Gabaldon,. I listen in the car, while designing in my studio and most evenings.

    Story
    "Must have tools for great salespeople & managers!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I not only recommended this book, I bought copies for my friends! Eventhough I've been in sales for 20 years, Grant Cordone had a pocketful of gems and tools for me to use. Grant has that over aggressive, enthusiasm that initially turned me off, but the content keep me interested through the whole book. If you follow his lessons at the end of each chapter you will increase sales and motivate your team.


    What three words best describe Grant Cardone’s performance?

    Enthusiatic, Motivational and sometimes overbearing. However he does a great job!


    What did you take away from If You're Not First, You're Last that you can apply to your work?

    I now have a book of tools to use to increase sales for my little company. Like setting up a monthly newsletter to my clients, speaking at real estate offices, women's groups, etc., about landscape design and the value that a great garden adds to ones enjoyment of their property and rapid sales in the Real Estate arena.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one you will listen to over and over again,

    "It was like listening to George Bush"

    Man, the attention to detail on this performance was zero. You could hear his cell phone ringing in the background.
    With that said the content was interesting, but I could only listen to a little at a time.

    Story
    "Forces You To Ask - Am I Doing Enough?"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this audio book by Mr. Cardone because he's a great salesman. He details various strategies for aggressively dealing with the economically challenged circumstances we find ourselves in.


    What other book might you compare If You're Not First, You're Last to and why?

    Sell or Be Sold. Because he's the one reading it. He also gives advice that's outside of the book - from time to time.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not necessarily an extreme reaction. It does cause one to ask - If you're just sitting around not taking any action at all for the betterment of your business - how are you going to improve your personal economy?


    Any additional comments?

    A great listen! I'm in the car most of the day and by the time I get to where I'm going - I'm motivated by his speaking and have some great ideas to put into action. Well worth it!

    "Worth the listen"

    I like business books and to hear the success stories. This was a nice change of pace, a little shock so to speak. It made me rethink my stance of how the economic situation has effected me and my roll in "taking it like a man".

    "Grant Does it Again!"
    What made the experience of listening to If You're Not First, You're Last the most enjoyable?

    Grant Cardone is one of the best motivational speakers I have heard. His books are like pep rallies which fire you up and make you think of new things which can help you reach your goals. I like this book as much as 10X Rule.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like that anyone can succeed if they put their heart and soul into what they do.


    What does Grant Cardone bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Yes - Grant has a great delivery and humorous side notes which make the listening experience special.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, however there are assignments which need to be completed so you will need a few days to complete the entire book.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait for more Grant Cardone audible books!

    "I love Grant Cardone"

    Grant's narration is so engaging, so fun, so compelling I always prefer to listen to his books. There are plenty of value added sidebars, but his energy is contagious. Grant has been around the business for a long time, he knows what works, he knows the excuses...he's been there...he will move your paradigm. Get this book and listen to it...OFTEN
