    The Millionaire Fastlane is narrated by MJ DeMarco.

    Unscripted is not ...

    I too, wish it were a different way...

    I digress.

    Unscripted is an AMAZING book regardless of the narrator.

    I really like the narrator of UNSCRIPTED. I think he did Scott Adams book.

    Great choice MJ.

    EDIT: There was a certain rawness and f*ck-youness that I liked in MFL with MJ reading as well.

    The narrator you hired was incredible. However, I have to agree with @Greg Rutkowski, having listened to The Millionaire Fastlane first with you narrating, it’s kind of a hard act to follow.

    I just finished listening to the sample and thought it was good. I already have the books and read them both twice. The narrator is important - some are good, some are bad. One review of a book, I can't remember which one, had a bad review because the narrator's pronunciations of the letter "s" was like a high pitched whistle. I listened to it and, sure enough, it was pretty terrible to listen to.

    Right now I am listening to The Willpower Instinct by Kelly McGonigal. So far, it's a great book and I recommend it. I watched a youtube video of her talk at Google before I bought the audiobook, which only touches on some of the main points in the book, so I was familiar with her voice. The strange thing is that her audiobook is read by a male. And while he's good, you would expect the book to be read by her or another female. I keep forgetting that she is the author. He sort of sounds like Simon Sinek so I keep thinking I'm listening to one of his books.

    MFL was like MJ delivering a sermon, really liked it. Unscripted audiobook is great too.

    I'm thinking recording an audio book is no easy feat. I'd rather hire for it, myself.

    I think the narrator of Unscripted did a great job. When you listen to him read the book, you’ll notice he accurately reflects MJ’s attitude and tone. If you listen to Chapter 1 (Tales from the script, A Monday story), you’ll know what I mean.

    Whatever dude. I am a paying customer of basically every product you've made and I'm telling you the narrater wasn't as good as with TMF. You should narrate it yourself.

    Sorry if you're too lazy to.

    Ahh, so being a "paying customer" gives you the right to talk sh*t about stuff you know nothing about, kinda like how you did in the crypto thread. Got it.

    I'm not going to go into the logistical detail about producing/narrating a 17 hour audiobook because it just wouldn't matter to you. Some people just like wallowing in ignorance, kinda like how every once in awhile, a dog will roll around in his own sh*t.

    I am not sure of your intentions here...

    I am pretty sure an audiobook must take hours and hours to record, edit and review. A process that MJ could outsource and still get a high level effort from a person, like this narrator.

    I paid under $10 for the audiobook and consider it as a supplementary or added bonus to the kindle version I own. I can listen to it on the way to work and at any time when I have to be hands free.

    Are you trying to build a bad reputation on this forum? If so you are doing an excellent job of it.

    I posted a basic question and an opinion and y’all try to sh*t on me.

    Are you people saying the narrator is better than MJ narrating it?

    Who seriously thinks that

    No one
    And FYI hot shot I am right about crypto and my bet still stands so far no one serious has taken me up on it
    A faker has but he doesn’t have the funds

    I don't recall anyone was saying one was better than the other. All I saw was that you preferred that MJ did the audio portion of Unscripted. The facts are that he choose not to do it and it still sold for those who wanted to listen to it (myself included). Maybe you can hire MJ to read it and you can record it for your own personal reference. I believe he charges reasonable rates for his time, $20-30K/hour but you might be able to get a discount if you ask him nicely. I'm not trying to be sarcastic or a smart donkey but I'm trying to understand why you are making this a bigger issue than it needs to be. You've stated your preference and that fine. We stated ours as well and that should be the end of it. Preferences aside, it will never change what happened and who he chose to read the book. I believe that the kind of freedom MJ has lets him determine what projects he wants to do and which ones he doesn't. I hope to have that freedom myself one day. That's all.

    The great thing about MJ? He has f*ck you money, in his f*ck you castle, in his position of f*ck you.

    Don’t like his narrator? You bought his products and want to talk smack, the customer is always right? Think MJ needs customers? Nope. He has f*ck you.

    MJ clearly states in both of his books he wrote out of passion to help people, not to make money.

    So when you allude to the fact you know more because you’re a customer, MJ has f*ck you on his side.

    This thread is an important lesson in the position of f*ck You.

    Ps, if you think I’m actually saying “f*ck you” to you, please reread the book about what f*ck you money/position is.

    Jesus what a bunch of sycophants what are you talking about man

    Is that how you run your business (if you have one?)? Do you hide in a safe space and any comment or criticism is a personal attack on you and you need to cry about it?

    I don't like the narrator. sorry if you're a snowflake and that offended you. I liked MJ's narration better. I stated I am a customer because I'm not just complaining about the product.

    @arcola Why are you even on the forum? This is a free service offered by MJ. All I have ever seen you write is to sh*t on people. You are entitled to your opinion, but you go about it like a dip sh*t. You say "Whatever dude" to the man who hosts this forum and brings us all together, it just smacks of disrespect. You don't have to worship at the feet of MJ, but at least show some respect and some class when disagreeing with the man.

    And your crypto thing.. what a joke. Again, you are entitled to your beliefs. If you insist that everyone is wrong and you are the only correct person, maybe your time is best served elsewhere? You bring nothing to the discussion. You are like a Flat-Earther showing up at a NASA convention and yelling at everyone for believing in space ships and curvature.

    Grow up

    Dude read the thread I come in here with a perfectly reasonable opinion and everyone comes in and sh*ts on me including MJ. I don't bend the knee for anyone.

    I'm on the forum because I knew about MJ and the fast lane years before you even joined this forum and I am a proponent of it's success (I am a fastlaner and have a real 6 figure profit per month business) and I have something to give when I'm ready.

    Please go reread my post.

    I am trying to explain that MJ does not need to listen to your opinion because he is not running a business.

    You took it personally.

    Chill.

    Wait. Wait. Wait...

    Are you referring @JScott as a faker who doesn’t have the funds???

    HAHA

    I won’t post inside stuff out here out of respect for Jscott. But he’s posted his actual investments on the Inside. And this post is just laughable now.
