Sorry guys.. if you think that with $4 you can increase your reading speed by 300% in less than 24 hours - you are naive.

There is no big news. The main idea is to read in chunks and practice, practice, practice.

Here is Trump in action—how he runs his organization and how he runs his life—as he meets the people he needs to meet, chats with family and friends, clashes with enemies, and challenges conventional thinking. But even a maverick plays by rules, and Trump has formulated time-tested guidelines for success. He isolates the common elements in his greatest accomplishments; he shatters myths; he names names, spells out the zeros, and fully reveals the deal-maker's art. And throughout, Trump talks—really talks—about how he does it.

This book is intended to teach you how to organise and manage tasks and projects in the information age. Very important topic.

However what you get is 10 hours of monotonous audio recording. Things like that, in my opinion, should be explained in a 2 hours video session with live demo.

It was a disappointment. Look up GTD software on the Internet yo get the general idea.

This book touches on variety of different social settings and includes a big section on non-verbal communications.
Personally, I found it very elementary; not what I expected.
