    Hey All! Well, I have completed more than half of The Millionaire Fastlane and I must say it's an amazing read as it's real talk with a Fastlane Millionaire who is ready to give you the secret an tell you the truth behind every lie ("Complete your schooling, Get good grades, get a nice pay job and work until you are 60 and then someday you will be RICH") which has been told us numerous time that we have accepted that as truth.

    I've Listened to The Millionaire Fastlane via Audible twice. Loved It!
    It defines and clarifies all the behaviors and characteristics I have interacted with during my life.

    I've also purchased a hard copy and audible of UnScripted. Loved It!!
    It really touches upon all aspects of life.

    I truly believe! If you add value, solve problems and help others in changing their life forever, you would be rewarded with an priceless gift.

    Family, Fitness and Freedom! as MJ describes.

    I've listened to it.

    This is the first audio book I've listened to and it did not disappoint.

    Not sure which I like more, TMF or Unscripted, but it's not a competition to be honest. They're both great.

    What I love about both books is the advice is blunt and too the point. With so much saturation out there, especially in business books, this book is like gold dust. A needle in a haystack, if you will.

    Towards the end of the book there is an abundance of helpful knowledge, like customer service, marketing etc. I really liked chapter 43, build brands not businesses.

    @MJ DeMarco - Have you thought maybe about writing a third, short book expanding on those chapters just on business advice like that? They're really helpful and tbh I just want more of it.

    Just finished reading and picked up Unscripted on Kindle. See attached screenshot for proof. Very persuasive and helped me realize many things. Definitely motivated me to aim higher. Very different writing style than other self-help/personal development/rich mindset books. You can tell Demarco is really passionate about his philosophy.

    Here are my negative thoughts (and I know critics don't amount to much): I can't help but feel as if this is another story where someone "got in during the dotcom boom" and got successful and would probably struggle today to find a good idea today. Because if they could repeat their original dot com success, wouldn't they keep reiterating? I know it isn't just about money, and at a certain point you are "comfortable and happy."

    Just about every internet marketer and dot com success story did very well up until around 2005 when things started going down. And today they share the "secrets of internet marketing" eapecially over the past few years since the methods don't usually work anymore due to violation of the CENTS "Entry" principle. My interpretation of this is because while they are not able to leverage their old methods, they are able to share the wisdom of how they made their money during a boom. And people eat it up.

    I know MJ addresses many of the points and I probably fall under Tekel syndrome trying out the next thing when one doesn't work right away which means I have read too many stories of "how they made it" when I think a lot of them rode a wave. And if you are smart, you should be able to apply the lessons (regardless) on the next wave: social media? YouTube? Content generation? But it seems the dot com wave just happens to have more similar stories.

    I also to have a deep distaste for anything network marketing/MLM. I like Demarcos approach to it, but can't help but wonder if he's just trying to use reverse psychology or something. But I guess if you want to know about the non-MLM/Network Marketing success stories, you shouldn't read books that talk about "millionaires" or "getting rich" as it seems to be their target phrase. Moreso it may be more beneficial to read the programming, philosophy, or engineering books of the successful people who are not internet marketers and don't want to write books about their success (because there is probably a higher chance they are not involved with MLM/Network Marketing).

    Also Demarco claims books only make up about 10% of his overall revenue. Sure, but if you consider the 80/20 rule, could it be that his books are actually contributing to 40% or more of his success, as opposed to continuing to exponentially grow his internet businesses? For example, how many people have read the book without purchasing (borrowing/library) and used some of his other products? How much money has been saved on "sales/marketing" because the book itself does an incredible job of closing deals? Again, these interpretations are going off what you can learn from Demarco's businesses as presented in the book.

    Again there are so many great qualities of the story as well. It did its job incredibly well and has helped mold my philosophy. I love the simplified Acronyms, and I am definitely going to remember the CENTS concept.

    Anyway, that is me being critical and maybe disillusioned by trying too many of this outdated internet money making methods (and not at the best level either), and I have plenty of my own faults.

    Overall I gave it 5 stars on Kindle because there is something special about the writing and storytelling style that is persuasive to help people recognize the illusion we live in and what to do about it. This is a great modern day book on how to perceive money and approach to entrepreneurship. And I picked up Unscripted - very much looking forward to reading it.
