Heavy on narrative and story telling, light on principals or reasons. This book is more like an autobiography.

In every industry, there are companies that take off. They effortlessly hire talented people, attract loyal customers, create cool products, and make lots of money. Sadly, most companies don't perform this way. Most entrepreneurs aren't building anything of value. They work hard, make sacrifices, struggle, dream, plan, and strive, but in the end, it doesn't pay off. 24 Assets provides a method for building a business that becomes a valuable asset. It focuses you on transforming your organization into something scalable, digital, fun, and impactful.

Would you listen to 24 Assets again? Why?

I'm already on my second listen. I plan on listening to this a few times. This has really good material that helped me understand what it takes to create a business and whether or not its for me.

What does Daniel Priestley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I looked up books by Daniel Priestley because I really liked entrepreneur revolution. I was right he would have another good book.

Rollo Tomassi is one of the leading voices in the globally growing, male-focused online consortium known as the "Manosphere". Outlined are the concepts of positive masculinity, the feminine imperative, plate theory, operative social conventions, and the core psychological theory behind game awareness and "red pill" ideology. Tomassi explains and outlines the principles of intergender social dynamics and foundational reasoning behind them.

Makes the argument that men's sole reproductive strategy is polygamous without providing any scientific evidence for their arguments. Its a theory without evidence so who knows if true? The scientific literature refutes the arguments. i.e. prairie voles vs montane voles and the hormones vasopressin and oxytocin.

Humans have a history of monogomous and polygamous behavior. Telling those which exhibit monogomous behavior to be more polygamous is asking for trouble. Monogamy is perfectly adapted to certain environments. Particularly when both male and female exhibit behaviors suitable for rearing offspring that require a lot of investment.

tl;dr humans are not locusts.

Entrepreneur or Wantrepreneur is a book which evaluates your entrepreneurial skill-set to a level that will make most want to quit listening. This book acts as an extreme crash course for the mind of both the entrepreneur and the wantrepreneur. Every ounce of the listener's mental fortitude is tested in an effort to provide self-identifying entrepreneurial strengths and weaknesses for all of those who embark on the entrepreneurial journey.

This book is by a couple of kids that get to brag on their successes and talk about how they didn't know what they were doing when they started. The only possible audience is a 20 year old who wants to be an entrepreneur because its "cool".

As it was in Anna Karenina, Madame Bovary, and Othello, so it is in life. Most forms of private vice and public evil are kindled and sustained by lies. Acts of adultery and other personal betrayals, financial fraud, government corruption - even murder and genocide - generally require an additional moral defect: a willingness to lie. In Lying, bestselling author and neuroscientist Sam Harris argues that we can radically simplify our lives and improve society by merely telling the truth in situations where others often lie.

Sam doesn't bother to do very much research but only offers arguments any rational person has considered.

I have enjoyed Sam's other books but this has nothing interesting to take away.
