What is that magic quality that makes some people instantly loved and respected? Everyone wants to be their friend (or, if single, their lover!) In business, they rise swiftly to the top of the corporate ladder. What is their "Midas touch?"

Book started out very interesting. Then throughout the book, there were long patches of boring and useless information. Some of her advice seemed pretty far fetched for me. She was a terrible name dropper. I guess she was trying to elevate her status and believability, but it turned me off. I think that would not be advice she would ever offer.

I didn't care for the narrator. I sped it up to 1.25-1.50. Much better at this speed.

It's worth a listen but be prepared to skip to the end of different chapters if it gets a little weird.

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!

Starts out pretty good. Good goal setting ideas. Good motivational strategies. But some of his tactics could really piss some people off, and he admits it. But his goal is to stand out and if you don't like it, tough.

Worth a listen, but I did fast forward through areas I had no interest in.

Misleading Book Title

Every idea he offers is common knowledge. I kept waiting on an original idea, but alas, it never came. Very misleading book title. He is extremely big on promotional offers and devotes much time on this subject. He touches on cross advertising with other businesses. He mentions email blasts and is big on testimonials. Again, good points, but all are proven accepted practices.

He devotes the first 3 or so chapters to writing scripts for sales calls and staff and improving customer service. I was beginning to wonder if I downloaded the correct book.

Please don't state in the title that everything I've learned is wrong, when all you do is tell me things that are proven to work. Not once did you explain what kind of lead generation technique you thought was "wrong".

Rename your book Marketing 101.
