Publisher's Summary

The Third Circle Theory is the theory that the founder of Secret Entourage created to explain how visionaries are made and billion dollar ideas born from nothing more than your observations. The theory which has proven to be the same for all the successful individuals who have not only found their purpose in life but have executed on their beliefs, and as a result established themselves as successful innovators, explorers, educators, and entrepreneurs is now clearly defined and will teach you how to live successfully, not just with money, but with the way you live your life and impact those around you.

On repeat

If you enjoy killing time while driving, walking around, or anything else then keep doing what you're doing. Now if you're looking to make use of all that "free" time you have, this is the book for you. I've read the paperback, along with all of SE's ebooks and now have TCT on audio repeat. They provide nothing but pure useful knowledge that'll lead you to a path you ultimately want to create.

This is a terrible book

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This book is best suited to someone who hasn't read any other self improvement books, as the best parts of this were lifted from other, better books.

What could Pejman Ghadimi have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

He could have elaborated on his criticism of education, self help books, and Generation X to actually make points and not just run down things he isn't a part of. We get it, you didn't go to college. But does that necessarily mean college is a waste of time?

How could the performance have been better?

The voice on the audio book was terrible. The reader sounds like an arrogant robot.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I was mostly confused. Don't go to college, don't waste your time on other books, ignore the self limiting Gen X mindset. Do be confident, manipulate the system when you can (the car buying experience was awful: Lie to everyone to get what you want). Use the google imndset. Weird because the dudes that invented Google were born smack in the middle of Gen X; but whatever.

Any additional comments?

The examples are shallow. How to get girls, how car clubs are successful, why school is unimportant, once you are successful, you'll need all new friends.This is like a SNL skit of bad advice. This isn't secret entourage. It is more like an episode of HBO's Entourage.

Phenomenal!

Absolutely one of my favorite books now. No attempt to sell you on the "perfect path" to success nor any ra ra pump you up language. Written in a very matter-of-fact manner. He gives you the reality. The choice to acknowledge and apply the knowledge he leaves in your hands. This is a book you can pull up at any time and it will help. A foundation for anyone truly trying to Impact the world. Recommend!

It Needs a Different Narrator

The book is outstanding, the story and the principal are A+++, but the narration sounds like a computer talking. Maybe another narrator would've make it better

Too Black&White, Too General, About Money & Status

What disappointed you about Third Circle Theory?

Its too black & white, he divides people in 3 circles, and makes general statements like, your life experience affects your outlook on life, or your upbringing affects your attitude. I do not think any of us need to read a book to know this. I think the 3 circle idea has merit, but he boxes people in too tight into each category. It tends to talk about money, career and status.

What was most disappointing about Pejman Ghadimi’s story?

At one point he gives a story about how he bought a car and lied his way through getting a good deal (close to dealerships cost for the vehicle). He says, "no one was hurt by what I did, and I got a good deal because I knew how to work the system". The car dealer's business got hurt in this transaction, I saw this as a "win-lose" philosophy and stopped listening.

Great Principle, Anti-Education Becomes Repetitive

Would you listen to Third Circle Theory again? Why?

A good listen if you're seeking a motivational nudge to follow your passion and find purpose in life. As a 20 y.o business student, however, I found that the author kept making jabs at the education system which becomes annoying if you find value in college. I also found that the narrator places strange emphasis on words throughout. Overall, I'd recommend giving it a shot, but I strongly recommend considering it in print form and selecting another title with your credit.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU READ THIS BOOK

I can't describe how much this book has helped me. It has given me the ability to rediscover my vision, and pursue it fiercely and consistently.

Thank you Pejman.

Exceptional

An exceptional book which doesn’t just waffle about assets and liabilities like Rich Dad Poor Dad, this actually delves into the mindset of an entrepreneur, and allows you to see introspectively to see your own failures, and how to address and fix them whilst going through the circles.

It’s easy to understand and eloquently structured with the circles. Truly a great piece, I tip my hat to Pejman.

Insightful

Insightful and a very valuable perspective on life. It provides a unique theory through the power of observation into 3 stages of possible human development whilst providing the unique characteristics of each stage and offers guidance to a greater meaning in life

Really mashes you think about what your doing!

This book is not too be taken lightly. Think through what you've heard and reflect on what you'redon't just now and where you're heading. Even if you don't believe in it, it can open up your mind and make you think through your situation.

Struggled to finish

A worthwhile listen for sure but I felt the messages could have been delivered with less words. A bit long in the tooth for me. While the narrator spoke well, I prefer books narrated by the author.
