The Entrepreneur Roller Coaster will prepare you for the wild ride of entrepreneurship. It will warn you (of forthcoming fears, doubts, and the self-defeating conditioning of your upbringing and past), inoculate you (from the naysayers, dream-stealers, and pains of rejection and failure), and guide you (as you build those under-developed skills of independence, self-motivation, and self-accountability) safely past the landmines that blow up and cause the failure of 66 percent of all new businesses.

Extreme success, by definition, lies beyond the realm of normal action. If you want to achieve extreme success, you can’t operate like everybody else and settle for mediocrity. You need to remove luck and chance from your business equation, and lock in massive success. The 10X Rule shows you how!

This book is worth the listen to, if you are a regular mediator or not. It is written as almost a biography with some great reasons on why to try meditation.. I enjoyed the book and recommend it.

Wow, the author is a complete man hater!

Now, she did have a lot of fair stuff in her book... and it could have been good, if she was not such a man hater.

However, there are plenty of books with the same ideas from women who actually like men.. do yourself a favor and pass this one up... Unless you only date the 2% of jerk men,, then maybe this book is for you.

Ambition can be a powerful force for good in our lives. But only if it is legitimate. Sometimes misinterpreted and often misunderstood, ambition - true ambition - is not a selfish quality. It is not another word for ruthless; it is not something to be shunned or subdued. Legitimate ambition is an honorable trait. At its very best, our ambition serves us and other people. In fact, pursuing your ambition is one of the most selfless things you can do.

Where does It's Just a F***ing Date rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I enjoyed the fact that you get both a man's and woman's point of view through out the book. I liked how blunt and straight forward they are. They could have done it with out the cursing, but the cursing made it real. Sometimes the best way to explain something is with the 'F' word. They covered all of the layers of dating.

Any additional comments?

This book is written primarily for the woman, with enough variety I am glad I listened to it. However, the next one of their books I listen to... I will make sure it is leaning more toward men.
