    Alright Fast-Laners, this is with comedic relief...if a lot of this forum is about business, sales and promotion of a product I’ll commit some “jest” in good faith as a lot of the world is too serious.
    We are 2 behind...Vote!!!! ;)

    Yes I do agree to a point.

    I do like the philosophy behind it though; design does not need to be complicated, and with some work it isn't the most difficult thing to get it realised and selling.

    I would not want to be in the position of taking a huge international corporation to court - that does not sound "Simple". He could have quite easily lost and ended up losing all the wealth that he had created.

    I’m gonna go with The Power of Habit. I think that’s the area most struggle with, and a huge behavioral trait that affect success.

    May be a bit redundant for some, I didn’t get in on the last book thread.

    I learned quite soon after reading the book that trying to license an idea with no secured IP and no product development undertaken just opens you up to at best a “no thanks”, at worst a “thanks for the idea”.

    There is little value in most ideas, only the execution is worth something. Kudos to Mr. Key for what he did with it, not sure it applies for most.

    This may be too mainstream but I loved the chimp paradox:

    The Mind Management Programme to Help You Achieve Success, Confidence and Happiness
    The Chimp Paradox is an incredibly powerful mind management model that can help you become a happy, confident, healthier and more successful person. Prof Steve Peters explains the struggle that takes place within your mind and then shows how to apply this understanding to every area of your life so you can:

    - Recognise how your mind is working

    - Understand and manage your emotions and thoughts

    - Manage yourself and become the person you would like to be

    Never Split The Difference is incredible. I'd love to know what the Forum thinks of it and if it doesn't win this time it stays up as one of the options.

    A rare, mostly out of print book: Ten seconds that will change your life, by Hal Falvey (you can find it in Amazon by 3rd party sellers).
    Written about 60 years ago, it explains a simple technique to re-orienting your internal dialogue to create more of what you want vs. dwell on what keeps one stuck...

    Our last book (Atomic Habits) is an offshoot of that one... so I personally hope it doesn't win. Good book yes, but I don't think I want to read 2 books on the same topic so close together.

    What are some interesting ideas that you learned from the book? Also do you plan on applying any of them?

    Personally, the most important one I learned was that wealth follows ownership, basically you need to own a piece (ideally most) of the action, be it the business, the real estate, the intellectual property etc. It is owning the asset what allows you to eventually convert it into $$$ down the line. Salaries negate this notion. It's hard to become massively wealthy on salaries alone...

    I loved Trust Me, I'm Lying. A must read for anyone in the media/marketing/blog industry.

    Never realized that he was the author of Perennial Seller. Will have to check it out.
