The "mind-reading" system that is revolutionizing online business. Do you know how to find out what people really want to buy? (Not what you think they want, not what they say they want, but what they really want?) The secret is asking the right questions - and the right questions are not what you might expect. Ask is based on the compelling premise that you should never have to guess what your prospects and customers are thinking.

Too much unrelated personal stuff. Poorly written.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Tom Parks?

Yes.

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

First half is all about bragging: the SAT test, Chinese bootcamp, subtle emphasis on how he was a smart hard working student, etc.

The author clearly didn't have a clue how the sequence of contents is perceived in audience's mind, and was constantly dumping some not-very-impressive egoistic stories to the listener.

A whole chapter reading the letter to your mom? Are you kidding me? Those were something completely irrelevant to the meat of this book. The hospital part was nice, but the rest are unrelated to the book, very boring.

Other parts also kept repeating "I this, I that, I don't care, blah blah blah". I mean, if you really "don't care", why did you even include them in the book?

First half is NOT about "how I came up with this formula", instead, it's more like something the author is trying to proof himself.

I mean hey, you even said at the beginning, entrepreneurs are busy people, and WHY ON EARTH did you even include those poorly constructed unrelated stories during the first half?

Unbelievable.

Any additional comments?

This book does have some important concepts, but be prepared to skip constantly if you are listening through the whole thing.
