Disappointing

It read like it was written by 15 year olds, not well done. Mediocre content. I'm a big fan of Cory G but this was just poorly done. It sounded like this:

"Business is hard bro, you gotta try hard bro..."

Bro Code

I think this book is definitely for the bros who want to build their own business. While some of the stories and thoughts were interesting, and I appreciated the candid presentation, it just didn't really flow. It reminded me of when broadcasters on ESPN try to deviate from sports and talk about politics. Not to say these guys don't know their stuff, but the delivery just didn't appeal to me.

Maybe I'll come back to this from time to time? Perhaps it's just personal preference, but a little refinement would go a long way. I'm not sure I really "learned," anything. I appreciate that these men are self-made but this book is presented as an extreme crash course, when maybe it should be presented as extreme insight.

Read the title and you've listened to the book.

Honestly the best thing about it is the title.

I could quickly summarize by reminding you what you already know- Business is not easy, it should not be taken lightly, and affords many opportunities to screw up. But it can also be rewarding.

The book, which is not actually a book, consists of two guys talking about the aforementioned. All the while peppering in stories of their greatness, in a way reminiscent of a steroid induced, caffeine fueled, personal trainer. ... but that's the point, I guess.

Atop the thin content, the book is listed as nearly a three hour listen. I was displeased to realize that only at a 2X listening speed did these two gentlemen reach a natural speaking cadence.

Not recommended.

REAL

This book is the most real business book I've read. I would recommend to anyone thinking about starting a business or in a business already.

Worst audio book ever.

Save your money, please. These dudes don’t need it. You can thank me later. Worthless book.

Just not worth it

This book lacks meaningful content. Overall, it's like listening to a guy in the bar brag and espouse his theories. Overall, it's a weak mental exercise. The author challenges you to get through the book promising you will see if you can be an entrepreneur by the end. In reality he is challenging you to listen to inane, poorly organized stream of thought.

Odd but motivational

This book read like a very amateur podcast. There were strange analogies and over-the-top motivational weight lifting motivational style of speaking. But there were good antidotes and did "pump me up" to want to start a business. Their mentality is extremely narrow to the supplement industry but it is what they know. I will say I have never read/listened to a book that kept telling me to stop reading. They kept using reverse psychology like "you can't handle the next chapter" constantly which I found comical given it was so repetitive and hyperbolic in its usage.

John Fosco is desperate for you to be impressed by him.

The content of the book is good enough. I appreciate the anecdotes, but this audiobook really falls short with its delivery. It's as if the guys are reading an outline instead of a manuscript, and as a result they meander and fumble for words to say. Cory Gregory is the much better speaker of the two, and while he makes a few mistakes here and there I still give him high marks.

John Fosco, however, not so much. In his desperate attempt to sound intense and impressive, he instead sounds like he's on the verge of a heart attack every time he speaks. Close to end of the book, he interrupts Gregory to inject a truly pointless and masturbatory speech about how he will TOTALLY EAT YOU ALIVE IF YOU'RE A WANTREPRENEUR BECAUSE HE'S A SHARK AND SHARKS EAT WHAT THEY WANT (I hope you narrated that in your best 'roid rage voice, because that's how it sounds in the book).

Disappointing and lackluster to say the least

The recording quality wasn't the greatest and as opposed to it actually being a book filled with relevant strategies and incite into becoming a better entrepreneur it was filled with anecdotes, euphemisms, and conversational banter that can easily be obtained from a podcast for free.

Egos on fire

I'm a massive fan of Cory Gregory. However a lot of this book was to successful entrepreneurs flooding the empty swimming pool with the juice of their egos. I listened all the way through, their are some take home points. Namely to think before you do and once you do commit to it. Cory Gregory will produce an amazing book in his lifetime, this wasn't it.
