We're in the middle of an epidemic of average. So-called "normal" people get up every day, go to work, do what's asked of them, leave promptly at five, and return home to sit on the couch and watch TV. Society tells us that this is what it means to lead a balanced life. Don't stress too much or work too hard. Your career isn't everything. But Grant Cardone thinks this preoccupation with balance has really just given an excuse to be mediocre.

I liked the "be obsessed" message, until it turned into a a sales pitch for his ridiculously expensive get rich quick sales school... "give me 20,000 and I'll make you a millionaire"... gross, almost like listening to a televangelist

How do you spot an area poised for gentrification? Is spring or winter the best time to put your house on the market? Will a house on Swamp Road sell for less than one on Gingerbread Lane? The fact is that the rules of real estate have changed drastically over the past five years. To understand real estate in our fast-paced, technology-driven world, we need to toss out all of the outdated truisms and embrace today's brand new information. But how?

Made it halfway through chapter 5, not sure how I got that far. An entire chapter on how the best indicator that a home value will go up is a Starbucks nearby? Wow... that's the secret? Crazy that people are buying houses far from a Starbucks, might as well be flushing their money... The book is also full of "case studies" about "an imaginary family" or a "hypothetical couple". So the authors make their case by providing fabricated examples? Great work guys... any way I can get my credit back for this garbage?
