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...

Great content, wrong narrator

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

Inspiring story dulled with lifeless narration.

Usually the narration does not attract my attention with an audio book, but it did in this instance. Having been aware about Brian for about 12 years, I have found his story continually inspiring and full of life! Unfortunately, the reading was monotonic, sounding like a 1st generation GPS. It took so much life out of the story that it disappointed me. I suggest you try the hard cover instead.

Too many concepts in one book.

Over all it is a decent book. In the concept of an emigrant, someone who is going someplace but has viable roots, as verse to an immigrant, someone leaving from someplace, is useful. And so are the several steps.
Its weaknesses are that Buffini tries to pack too many Self Help concepts into one book. And continues to belabor concepts on which he obviously trying to be concise.
I would not read this one twice. But it was well worth the 1st read.

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.

Absolutely amazing book!

One of the best books I have listened to. Wish the author would have narrated the whole thing.

GREAT CONTENT

Some powerful insights and rules to live by. The author narrates the prologue and conclusion and his voice is very energetic. The narrator for the rest of the book made it difficult to get through at times. The main narrator's voice is soothing and kind of monotone which puts me to sleep even if the content is engaging.

The Best Book

This is by far the best book I’ve ever read other than my scriptures. If it takes you a year to read a book then read this book or listen to it. If you are like me and can read or listen to a book a month then get this book. Brian really knows how to capture an audience and teach them things that they may already know but don’t know how to implement. If anyone ever writes a negative comment about this book I will hunt them down and make them read it again. I just finished the book for my second time in the same month in which I began it the first time. Thank you Brian for writing this book. One of my goals is to meet you one day and even have your personal phone number in my favorites list on my phone. However, if I never do, if I said thank you a million times I just don’t think it would be enough.

Loved book reading not so much

I loved the story but the reading was very monotonous. I had to put it on 1.5 x speak so I wouldn’t fall asleep. Not sure why readers are not required to not speak in a monotone.

Mostly self and business promotion.

There were about three good lines, thus the two stars. The reader is also very muted, making for a tired presentation.

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.
