    "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.

    "Too much ding, not enough dong."

    If you can get over the meat-headed-ness of the performances, you quickly realise that this is not an audio book, it's more like an unpolished podcast. If you can get over that, you'll realise it is big on bravado, but short of meaningful content. It isn't all a disaster, but if you're thinking like an entrepreneur, the return on your time invested in listening to this will be pretty low, and you could boost that ROI by investing your time elsewhere.

    "Get over your EGOS"

    This is basically an ego stroking book for the authors. Bro mentality with lots of bragging about themselves over and over and over again.

    "This is not an audio book, it's a podcast "

    The recording quality is poor and the content consists of mostly anecdotes of two guys milking their survivor bias from the MMA rise. Remember, everyone is a genius in a bull market.

    While you have to be a fool to not take a lesson from their experiences, it is by no means something that can stand on it's own to guide an aspiring entrepreneur.

    It's also annoyingly self contradictory because at every chapter the pair tells you to stop reading and not be an entrepreneur if you didn't make this or that what according to them an entrepreneur would have done.

    It's not completely wrong, but neither are horoscopes. The book is about that useful if you want to start a business. Nice pep talk and I'm glad they can live their dream but it's bordering on snake oil.

    "Horrible, This is not a book. It was a waste of time."

    This was two guys talking and telling people why they shouldn't get into business. It was not a productive book with insight on how to become an entrepreneur. It could have been so much more but it instead it fell flat. I kept hoping it would get better or lead some where, but it never did. It was a waste of my time and the time of anyone else who chooses to listen to their dribble.

    "What a waste of a great title"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?


    Any additional comments?

    Honestly wanted to love this book. Hoped this book would scratch the itch I have about all those people that boastfully want to be entrepreneurs just for the sheer outwardly glamour. I expected some insights and practical solutions. I wished for an elegant essay that discusses the current generation's illusion of success. My mistakes. This book is actually quite full of arrogant word vomits of two egotistical men who think they're god's gift to the business field. Not practical. Not helpful. It's a self-indulgent book for the authors' amusements.

    I mean, sure, if you need a very basic pep-talk to convince you that you're a real entrepreneur, then go ahead and spend your money. I feel like I've wasted mine.

    "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.
