Publisher's Summary

Has the "settle-for-less" financial plan become your plan for wealth? That plan sounds a little something like this:

"Graduate from college, get a good job, save 10% of your paycheck, buy a used car, cancel the movie channels, quit drinking expensive Starbucks mocha lattes, save and penny-pinch your life away, trust your life-savings to the stock market, and one day, when you are oh, say, 65 years old, you can retire rich."

Since you were old enough to hold a job, you've been hoodwinked to believe that wealth can be created by blindly trusting in the uncontrollable and unpredictable markets: the housing market, the stock market, and the job market. I call this soul-sucking, dream-stealing dogma "The Slowlane" - an impotent financial gamble that dubiously promises wealth in a wheelchair.

Accept the Slowlane as your financial roadmap and your financial future will blow carelessly asunder on a sailboat of hope: hope you can get a job and keep it, hope the stock market doesn't tank, hope the economy rebounds, hope, hope, and hope. Do you really want hope to be the centerpiece of your family's financial plan?

Drive the Slowlane road and you will find your life deteriorate into a miserable exhibition about what you cannot do, versus what you can. For those who don't want a lifetime subscription to "settle-for-less", there is an alternative; an expressway to extraordinary wealth capable of burning a trail to financial independence faster than any road out there. And shockingly, this road has nothing to do with jobs, 401(k), mutual funds, or a lifestyle of mediocrity.

Demand more. Change lanes and find your explosive wealth accelerator. Hit the Fastlane, crack the code to wealth, and find out how to live rich for a lifetime.

    "Excellent!"

    I almost did not purchase this book because of the title, but I'm so glad I did! This could very easily be the best book I've read in years. I currently earn an above average income (low 6 figures). Even though I can afford a good living, I feel like saving through my 401k is not getting me anywhere fast. As a former financial advisor, I believe the author's ideas are sound and he confirms why I felt like a fraud every time I pitched stocks and mutual funds. While it has been done, it is extremely difficult to make big gains in the stock market. It's mainly a really slow game that takes more than a couple decades to work. This book presents a mental state rather than a step by step plan. The author gives many examples of fast track success stories and most importantly, he doesn't sell any of the content as "get rich easy". Oh, and there's no up selling attempts within this book!

    "Best I have read in a long time"
    What made the experience of listening to The Millionaire Fastlane: Crack the Code to Wealth and Live Rich for a Lifetime the most enjoyable?

    I own a business that's pretty successful but not fast lane yet like I want because I need to work on scale but MJ is dead on with his 5 commandments of fast lane business and his 3 types of people. Also he isn't a guru trying to lure you into buying more his stuff. He is truth.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    MJ because he is real and I know from experiences that what he is saying is true.


    What does MJ DeMarco bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I can identify with him.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The Truth the Gurus Don't Want You to Know


    Any additional comments?

    I hope to meet MJ some day. He has inspired me to jump back into my business and rev the engine for the fast lane.

    "Good insights, over the top condescension"

    MJ undoubtedly has pretty good thoughts and guidance when it comes to money and has fresh insights and stories from his life. The content of the book itself was helpful and actionable.

    The listening experience was spoilt for me by his constant condescension, made up of thinly veiled insults and rhetoric. I know this is his persona for the book and how he stands out, but I didn't care for that too much.

    I felt that the chapter break music was very jarring as well.

    "Cracking the code = Not going to find it here."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Practical advice, next steps, solid tools for listener to use.


    Has The Millionaire Fastlane: Crack the Code to Wealth and Live Rich for a Lifetime turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. I'll not buy another book from this author though.


    What three words best describe MJ DeMarco’s performance?

    Self-consumed, pompous, immature


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Very little. Frankly can't think of anything he has shared that was helpful except for my thinking I should learn how to code and build my own websites.


    Any additional comments?

    DeMarco breaks down his basic theory on sucess breaking success into two groups, slow lane success and fast lane success. I'm in chapter 15 and so frustrated listening to the same damning example after example after example of slow lane success techniques. Each example of how other people are stupid comes dripping with an all knowing attitude while avoiding any tangible steps for you to make going forward. Granted I'm only in Chapter 15 so haven't listened to the bitter end but all I've suffered through could have been easily summarized in one chapter.Have you ever been trapped with someone who can't stop talking about themselves and how smart they are and sharing their opinions on how the world works? DeMarco may know how to make money for himself but his book is desperately short on valuable insight as to how you might be able to do it. I can sum up what I've heard so far in a couple sentences. All I keep hearing is how awesome he is, what a great life he has and how if I'm smart I'll want to be like him.Saving money, investing in mutual funds or stocks or anything like that is stupid "slow lane" thinking. You need to come up with an idea to make money like I did with my internet company and make money in the fast lane! - Now you'll be waiting to hear details or formulas helping you do the same but they won't be there. You'll just keep hearing those same two lines over and over. I'm 9 hours and 12 minutes into a 12 hour book and so far that's all I've gotten out of it. So much of it is telling you that life is short. I feel like I've wasted 9 hours of it listening to this book. I'm giving up.

    90% lecturing, 10% how to get to fast lane. Too much chastising people for being idiots.

    "Tell it like it is"
    If you could sum up The Millionaire Fastlane: Crack the Code to Wealth and Live Rich for a Lifetime in three words, what would they be?

    Leverage Value Customer-obsessed


    What other book might you compare The Millionaire Fastlane: Crack the Code to Wealth and Live Rich for a Lifetime to and why?

    I would compare this to Rich Dad Poor Dad, but without the gloom and doom that Kiyosaki spouts.


    What does MJ DeMarco bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Brutal honesty, humor and cutting through the fat.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Great advice book on the criteria to look for a business that will scale and reach the most audience. MJ smashes down the whole "do what you love, follow your passion" mantra out there. It's more about providing value to others with passion and hard work.

    "The Real Deal"
    What made the experience of listening to The Millionaire Fastlane: Crack the Code to Wealth and Live Rich for a Lifetime the most enjoyable?

    The author himself read the book, and has a very conversational tone. I felt as if he was in the room/car with me.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This was based upon the author's experience. There was no stories about people who wished, hoped and dreamed they'd be rich- this guy tells you how to actually make it happen.


    What about MJ DeMarco’s performance did you like?

    His tone was earthy and conversational. Felt like you met him at the bar and you talked with him for hours.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely.


    Any additional comments?

    Once you're done listening to people tell you to meditate, look at your goals 50x's a day and hope and dream about being rich then you're ready for this book.

    "Don't read this book!"

    Don't read this book if you are comfortable where you are in your life. If you don't like change and you like midicrosy stay away from this book, it's not for you.

    if you want to change your life to the better.
    if you don't like your income, nor your job.

    then this book is for you.

    expect chalenges
    expect to be uncomfortable
    expect go beyond your limited thinking
    expect to be a winner
    expect a process to get rich, not events

    it's hard to just read it once
    your going to have to read it many times until it sinks in.

    it's all about you and your choices

    you determine your outcome in life

    you can be rich or you could be poor
    ether way, you choose you live it

    loved the book. I keep going back to highlights I maked-( reminders)

    your going to love it

    "great message watered down by constant repetition"

    The first half of the book is painfully lacking and repititious.The second half is great and extremely substantial. The narrator(who is also the writer) while has great energy sounds more like a salesman, which did not appeal to me. if you can get past the bland first half you will be treated a some wonderful lessons later on.

    I really loved this book, I'm going to read it again. So insightful, challenging, current & just what I needed. I nearly overlooked this book cause of the title, thankfully I took a leap of faith. This is how it is, no nonsense, honest and blunt.

    "It's ok."

    I have read / listened to alot of these kinds of books and while I agree with most of the things MJ says in this book, that's pretty much all he does.
    MJ goes through all the reasons why living a certain way (the slow lane) will not accelerate your road to wealth and that's pretty much it. If your like me you will probably know all of this already, there is no real blueprint or plan of action, it's just Mr DeMarco going on and on about the fast lane / slow lane paradox.

    Overall there's some interesting ideas in this book but nothing more. Be prepared for MJ to go on and on and give you nothing that your desperate to hear about finding your own path towards the fast lane.

    "Aimed at extreme wealth creation, not bad"
    What did you like best about The Millionaire Fastlane: Crack the Code to Wealth and Live Rich for a Lifetime? What did you like least?

    Some good insight and tips. It's aimed too much at creating ridiculous wealth in short order. Most people don't have the mechanism to do this or have too much to lose. I prefer a slower and steady approach to wealth.

    After reading this book I re-evaluated my fastlane, although already on the fastlane it became clear that my vehicle wasn't the right one, as it would get me to where I want to be BUT not where I know I can now get, I was selling myself short and accepting my ceiling.

    "A game changer"
    What made the experience of listening to The Millionaire Fastlane: Crack the Code to Wealth and Live Rich for a Lifetime the most enjoyable?

    Having listened to this whilst on holiday, it immediately struck a chord with my thinking. I hope to retire in 2-3 years (I'm 54 and have been in the slow lane all my life but have been dealing in property for over 10 years but not to the extent I need to) and have already passed this book onto some youngsters to hope they dont make the same mistake as me.


    What did you like best about this story?

    A complete new approach (as far as I'm concerned anyway) about how important it is to get out and enjoy life free from the 9-5 druge that we all sucumb to.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The story about the two sons of the Pharoah and the two approaches of building the pyramid. That summed it all up to me.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    The very american glitz sounds between the main sections was immensely irritating, as was the voice of the man from the 'Muppets' acting as the voice of people on the sidwalk or slowlane...
