    Please post a little bit more of a detailed summary of your observations of the book. What are some things that you learned that you didn't already know?

    I just went through it in bird's eye view.It sounds closer to MJ's books.But hey, no one can beat MJ's books and we all know it.You know why? It is just another wantrepreneur book.It says you to start a business based on what you love! not what market need

    Wait wait wait....

    It is your top three book and you've only scanned it over?

    Then you compare him to MJ, and at the same time provide an example that is the exact opposite of what MJ talks about.

    I'm confused!

    i did not scan it, i read the book. if you can recall on my last thread i posted here, i asked how much was enough to be at the position of FU,v8bill then suggested i should take a look at his book,v8bill's book focuses on how to double your income and have a taste of freedom without really having millions, my problem ..even thou i read MJs books and this one, i was still searching for a way to define my own FU position....AND FOR THE RECORD @MB2 there's nothing in Dan's book that promotes do what you love, Dan says you must learn to love what you do if it brings money and helps alot of people.

    I read FU money, and while I think there are some similarities, I found the MJ books so much better. I kind of find Dan Lok a little "gross". It always seems like a sales pitch with that guy. I just don't know how much I buy it. Also calling himself the highest paid consultant, doesn't mean he is. I guess I'm not sure I buy it. I look at his social media, and he barely has any followers for someone so "in demand". Basically no interaction either. When he posts stuff, no one seems to pay attention.

    It felt a little fluffy to me.

    I will say, I liked a lot of the stuff he said in the book, and I think he was right on a lot of fronts. Unscripted, though, looked like a labor of love and effort.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Zero interest in the book. I did watch a YouTube video of the guy and he came off as a sleezy salesman.

    Isn't one of his books :
    Influence: 47 Forbidden Psychological Tactics You Can Use To Motivate, Influence and Persuade Your Prospect.
    I've not read it since the title alone puts me off and reeks of manipulation (I may be wrong)

    Try more like A̶n̶d̶r̶ Tai Lopez's twin brother...

    He is a self-proclaimed "serial entrepreneur" yet you will not find any info online on his numerous businesses.

    Apparently, he made all his fortune by teaching marketing. Sounds familiar?

    This is taken from Dan's homepage:

    DAN LOK’S HIGH-TICKET CLOSER™ CERTIFICATION PROGRAM
    When you’re a High-Ticket Closer™, you can close anyone anywhere you are in the world.

    Don't know about you.. but to me, that 1st sentence already raised some serious red flags.

    I am conflicted on this one...

    I did find FU Money to be a reasonable source of information. It told a lot of his backstory coming to Canada from China and being quite poor and basically building himself into the business he is now. There are some great action steps at the end of each chapter that I found valuable as well. Again, the problem lies in that he does not teach you action strategies to actually start generating passive income.

    Now with regards to the High Ticket Sales Program. I really like his podcasts. It has good information on client acquisition and earning money you are worth, even as a beginner.

    The biggest red flag I've seen with his program is that he says he wants to bring people into his network to do high ticket sales. It would be awesome if you were trained as a part of the company and then paid on whatever structure. Instead Dan wants to charge you $2700 just to get into his program.

    It never sat well with me...

    And that is my biggest issue with him.
