Publisher's Summary

The Entrepreneur Roller Coaster will prepare you for the wild ride of entrepreneurship. It will warn you (of forthcoming fears, doubts, and the self-defeating conditioning of your upbringing and past), inoculate you (from the naysayers, dream-stealers, and pains of rejection and failure), and guide you (as you build those under-developed skills of independence, self-motivation, and self-accountability) safely past the landmines that blow up and cause the failure of 66 percent of all new businesses. You will learn the best strategies Darren has ever collected from the most successful people on the planet, covering the four essential skills necessary for entrepreneurial success: Sales, Recruiting, Leadership, and Productivity.

Great advice

I read a lot of business books, but not many written in an overtly self-help narrative. I loved the advice I encountered in this book, particularly starting with chapter 3.

Greatest entrepreneur mindset book I have read!

Darren, Thank you for all your time, sweat and tears devoted to writing this book. Too many times I thought you were writing just about my experiences but then realized that is why you wrote the book...they are every entrepreneurs experiences. Also very pleased with your exercises at the end of each chapter.

Worth the Ride!

By the end of hearing this book, there should be a certain amount of conviction that rises within you to question the limits you may be putting on yourself. I challenge any listener/reader to take inventory of your business and ask.... "Are there any ideals in this book that can help my business right now"? If the answer is yes, take action on the ideals that come to mind. If the answer is no, chances are you're not in business. Either way this book can and will help you only if you work with what works.
Thanks again Darren for delivering another timeless classic.

Highly Motivational, Exceptionally Entertaining

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, my 2nd book by Darren Hardy. I like how Mr Hardy makes a point, tells stories, and uses metaphors to engage the reader to inform and entertain. In this book I particularly found useful motivation when I think about how Mr Hardy explains the U.S. government trains teenagers to expect and accept being shot at in the military service. Lately, when my mind makes lame excuses to not do something difficult at work, I think how hard can it be when I think about our military and the obstacles they overcome at ridiculously young ages. I also like how Mr Hardy explains the unwritten under explained phenomena where someone gains success through hard work and perseverance only to find many people will turn away from having relationships just because someone has become highly successful in their life. This is a great book worth reading for the messages and also for the entertaining stories. Mr Hardy and his team created another top tier book. The reason I deducted a star from performance is because Mr Hardy has a voice that can take some getting used to. The Compound Effect by Hardy is also phenomenal.

Great book

I found this book to be too dramatic and long when it came to explaining the authors experiences. However, the overall message and inspiration it offers are well worth the read.

Easily the best entrepreneurship book I've read

From start to finish, this book addressed all my fears, has given me hope, and the courage I've needed to work on the life of my dreams, to make those dreams into reality through actual application of the principles learned. Thank you!

EXCELLENT BOOK AT THE RIGHT TIME!!

I have read and listened to Jim Rohn and Napoleon Hill books for the past several months, these two authors are amazing, I just discovered Success Magazine and Darren Hardy a few weeks ago, first I read his book "The Compound Effect", which for me is in the top 5 books I have read, I highly recommend it to you, as I already recommended it to all of my close friends, I just finished listening to "The Entrepreneur Roller Coaster", this came to my at the right time, I'm going to start my Entrepreneur adventure in January 2018, this book had provided me with the amount of knowledge, inspiration and jet fuel to do what I have planned for the past few months, and only that, to focus on my priorities in order to become more. Thanks Darren Hardy

It’s sales, not entrepreneurship

Based on the title and reviews, I was expecting a book on entrepreneurship. Instead, it was a self-help / motivational guide for sales. It could be a great book if you’re building a multi-level marketing business or if you’re in sales. Unfortunately, I was expecting a book on being an entrepreneur which this book did not deliver.
