Decent read

Top takeaways:

You're thinking from five years ago has become your baggage of today. You must continue to expand and grow consciously. 

How can you become MORE VALUABLE TO OTHERS? 

No longer can you give the general pitch. 

MUST BE MICRO NICHE AS PEOPLE BUY FROM ALL OVER NOW. 

Write a book and make some products to be an expert.

Beautiful in its simplicity

What a refreshing reminder of how business is changing and the simple (in terms of what is required) steps it takes to be known in your industry.

Having listened once now it is time to repeat the listening and to complete the exercises.

This book has given me a nice new boost of energy to make a positive difference to the way I live and how I am rewarded along the journey.

Thanks Daniel

Undiluted snake oil

The author offers an easy 5 step plan to fortune and success. Everybody can do it. As a bonus, there is a hidden message in the book which he refers to often. In the epilogue he tells you to keep searching for the hidden message, which, if found, will turn you into a super productive successful key person of influence?

Does that sound too good to be true? That's because it is. He collects a bunch of personal experiences and platitudes, not hindered by any research, and simply claims over and over again that success will follow.

He probably means his own success. When he sends the snake oil to many people. I didn't learn anything from this book. The only good thing is that it was very short. So I didn't waste too much time on this.

My tip, read books from actual leaders or people who've actually done the research. Eg Jim Collins, Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, Peter Thiel, Eric Schmidt, Jocko Willink. Real insights from real leaders. Nuanced and humble. No simple 5 step plan to success. But the truth.

Full of banalities. Waste of time

This book had really good reviews so I downloaded it.
First of all, the narration was not good.
Secondly the content was full of banalities and really general knowledge. He spends a whole chapter self-congratulating himself by saying how this book will make you rich and the method is amazing. But there is no content - nothing!
Most of the advice he gives is really common sense things that everyone knows now. He recommends using social media and publishing content... Well, this is obvious. 16years old people know this without having to buy a book! So why bother with this book?
What a waste of time!!!!

Incredibly frustrating, repetitive and gimmicky. Don't bother unless you're a deluded entrepreneur. What a waste

Not great

There was the odd decent part but the opening chapters were the author repeating how he will make you a KPI. A theme repeated throughout. Too many claims to make you a KPI and not enough substance.

Some very obvious subjects like ‘setup social media accounts...’

Points are too drawn-out and laboured over with annoyingly over enthusiastic reader

If you like to be talked at by people who repeat themselves while never quite getting to the point then you need to buy this book!
All padding with no worthwhile content

Rubbish:

Over simplistic, just nonsense. And the fact the author claims there's a 'hidden' meaning to the book! Yeah because Machiavelli, cook books, let's face it no manual for success should have anything hidden. This is a transparent ploy to make the reader think this junk is more impressive than it is. AVOID this nonsense. If you haven't been unconscious for the last twenty years you've already passed this one. It is truly awful and truly rubbish. You have been warned!

Average

Overall nothing special

The first hour is pretty dull and uninformative - basically the world is changing and you need to as well.

It gets slightly better when talking through the 5Ps. Some ok tips for how to run and grow a small business from the point of view of marketing.

My main comment is that it mostly focuses on the marketing aspects of running a small business rather than the art and science of building up an industry profile.

quite captivating

If you need a good talking to with a strong theme and a decidedly positive 'you can do It' message, then this is for you. a good, well thought out narrative with clear vocabulary, step by step guidance with examples and all delivered with a clarity of conviction.

Encouragement to strive and great info on how to

A great encouragement to become a master at something and some fantastic tools on how to promote that, taking advantage of current technology.

My only word of caution or concern comes from the area of people falsely believing they have something amazing to share with the world before they've done the work/hard yards to truly become a master or worthwhile teacher of it. The book addresses this area briefly but I think could do a better job of encouraging better, continued passion around mastery in one's chosen field.
