Great combination MJ!
A book from someone already living the FastLane life reads much different.
I wonder if it has the potential to grow into full fiction one day?

Amazing book, tbh I dun like the Millionaire Fast Lane. I like the way how Unscripted 1,2 books dig deeper into the LIFE advice. It is very useful and timeless wisdom for young people like me who are in 20s. Great Job MJ, you are the one who making huge impact of a lot of people.

If I nvr read your books, I might be stuck at the rat race. All thanks to you, I woke up with Red Pills. It is the same when Morpheus bring red pills to Neo.

The fiction can stand alone as its own book already, no need to add more.

I just finished the audiobook today.

I loved the progression through their story to feel a connection to the material and to make their process and pivots feel so natural. Intertwining that and the parallel tracks of MJ's lessons was a great approach.

I had started with the kindle version but was failing to find enough reading time so I picked up the audible version too.

I'll pick up the printed version for my next pass through. I have lots of notes in my TMF and Unscripted copies.

Thanks for the great read.

Just finished this evening. It was a good book.

I like how you brought back the "Key Concepts" at the end of each chapter with this book.

Love this book. This is one of the only 3 books I’ve had trouble putting down of the dozens I’ve read in 2021.

The concept of “How you do something meaningless is how you do something meaningful” particularly hits me hard. Learning and internalizing this lesson alone is worth paying 10x what this book costs.

Thank you, MJ!

##### SUMMARY

UNSCRIPTED - The Great Rat Race Escape : From Wage Slavery to Wealth, How to Start a Purpose Driven Business and Win Financial Freedom for a Lifetime
(Yes, really long but I was able to get to work on the cover!)

By all appearances, Jeff and Samantha Trotman are living the American Dream. But behind the white picket fence, they endure an American Nightmare. With little time for each other, a pile of debt, and Ferrari taste on a Ford budget, the ruse of affluence is killing them. Two respectable jobs and a lovely suburban house paint a pretty picture, but behind the ink is a broken marriage rife with meaningless work and dead dreams. And now, with an unplanned pregnancy, they’re facing a mid-life crisis twenty years early.

With little time and looming bankruptcy, the Trotmans are forced to face the red-pill truth they long denied: They were living, but they weren’t alive. Determined to resurrect their life and their marriage, the Trotmans plot a rat-race escape—only to find themselves more thickly in it.

As tensions rise and hope fades, follow along step-by-step as the Trotmans pivot to a new strategy and a new career: starting a business as entrepreneurs.

While they navigate their journey, you’ll learn 120 wealth-building strategies and principles that your mainstream financial guru won’t dare reveal—actionable concepts that will help you profit your way into the Unscripted 1%, an emerging economic class of entrepreneurs who enjoy a lifetime of freedom emancipated from miserly living and Wall Street's "save, pray, and wait" paradigm. Discover how one family escapes the rat-race grind and wins a lifetime of financial freedom, leaving behind the tyranny of meaningless jobs and mediocre living— and how you can too.

  • The Bad Math Principle: Why most people will never escape the rat-race, much less earn financial freedom.
  • The 1/5/10 Strategy: How this one simple exercise will unearth your ultimate dream life while establishing a decision framework for its reality
  • The Honeypot Principle: Why the financial media's "invest a $100/mo for 40 years in indexed-funds" narrative is part of the same rat-race scheme, just a different side of the same rigged coin.
  • The Dual Change Strategy: The two divergent sides of change and how it can make you a fortune.
  • The Value Skew Strategy: How to find literally 1000s of business ideas and why you never need to "disrupt" or invent anything new or novel.
  • The Millionaire Payday Strategy: How to spot opportunities to hire yourself and earn an instant millionaire-making income.
  • The Cinderella Principle: Why starting a business based on a cultural trend or a fad is a horrible idea.
  • The Perseverance Strategy: Never struggle with motivation again; the four necessary ingredients to tap into unlimited motivation and determination, regardless of the obstacles in your way.
  • The Triangulated Value Strategy: Learn how to never quit three-feet from gold: The 3-pronged strategy in maximizing marketing yields while also illuminating the "quit or continue" decision.
  • and over 110+ more!
Don’t let the rat-race and its co-conspirators proclaim your life as non-essential. Don’t let the rat-race entice you to save your life away for the promise of an elderly retirement. Don’t let the rat-race lull you into a tedious existence medicated by television, video games, and trivial sporting events.

Go Unscripted , escape the rat-race, and win your happily-ever-after.

I've finished reading The Great Rat Race Escape . Definitely a good book. Loved how MJ incorporated Strategies and Principles with a fictional story. It all fits perfectly.

There are even some principles that got me thinking about my life and the individuals who I socialize with even some family members.

Took me a few weeks to finish, but loved this one. Now I need to read the first Unscripted book.
