Publisher's Summary

Brian Buffini, an Irish immigrant who went from rags to riches, shares his strategies for anyone who wants to achieve the American dream.

Born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, Brian Buffini immigrated to San Diego, California, at the age of 19, with only 92 dollars in his pocket. Since then he has become a classic American rags-to-riches story. After discovering real estate, he quickly became one of the nation's top real estate moguls and founder of the largest business training company, Buffini & Co., in North America.

But Brian isn't alone in his success - immigrants compose 13 percent of the American population and are responsible for a quarter of all new businesses. In fact Forbes magazine boasts that immigrants dominate most of the Forbes 400 list.

So what are the secrets? In The Emigrant Edge, Brian shares seven characteristics that he and other successful immigrants have in common that can help anyone reach a higher level of achievement, no matter their vocation. He then challenges listeners to leave the comfort of their current work conditions to apply these secrets and achieve the success of their dreams.

Love Brian's work!!!

I've listened to Brian for the past year on the podcast which is phenomenal! I've learned so much and value each jewel, guest and wisdom he has his family has to offer. My ONLY disappointment is his Irish Accent isn't on here for its entirety!!! I'd pay double hear his voice which is so intriguing and captivating!! Thank you for sharing your story and the Emigrant Edge...

A fantastic choice for anyone looking to improve themselves

I’ve been listening to the Brian Buffini Show podcast for several months now and many of the stories and quotes from the show are condensed into this book. It’s a very good read/listen for anyone seeking to change and improve themselves or any part of their life.

I can understand Brian is a busy guy and probably didn’t have time to narrate this book himself, though I wish he had. There’s nothing inherently wrong with Fred Sander’s narration, but it doesn’t feel quite right without Buffini’s Irish brogue. That being said, I’d still highly recommend picking this up.

Inspiring and motivating book!

I really appreciate Brian Buffini for writing and sharing the Emigrant Edge with us all. This is a great book! It's heart-felt, inspiring and motivating. In an age of entitlement and discontent this is a breathe of fresh air. The Emigrant Edge can be enjoyed by anyone regardless of where you were born or where you reside now.

Great content, wrong narrator

Why don't authors read their own books? The narrator was boring compared to the author.

Just plain, perfection! Absolutely amazing book!

This is the best book that I've ever read. I dream of becoming an American one day and hence, read this book. However, it isn't just for new immigrants or people planning to immigrate to America, it is also for people who already are in America. In fact, I often feel bad when I see Americans taking their nationality for granted and whenever I do, I try to make them realise what opportunity lies in front of them and now, I have a book to recommend to them. This is just amazingly an awesome art of work! A must, must, must read for anyone.
