    Just order it on amazon:

    Amazon.com: The Millionaire Fastlane: Crack the Code to Wealth and Live Rich for a Lifetime. (9780984358106): MJ DeMarco: Books: Reviews, Prices & more

    Someone posted yesterday that it got to England in a week, w/only $8 shipping.

    Looks like they even have a kindle edition now-- so that would be even faster! :banana:

    I've just ordered mine to the UK and it totalled £15.00. Granted it may take 3 weeks to arrive but from the reviews the books been getting it should be well worth the wait.

    Hi MJ,

    I have recently just recieved the book after 2 weeks of waiting in transit. I would like to say thank you personally for signing my copy of the book (even though it was limited to US). Will be getting stuck into this book after college exams, just can't wait!

    Thank you MJ for writing a book that goes far beyond the usual save 10%, invest, diversify yada yada yada.
    Reading your book was very motivating to "DO".

    I've read the book. Thanks for unveiling the reasons behind some of my failures. Between this forum and the book, I'm sure I'm on the right road (or at least headed toward the right road). Thanks again!

    I too finished the book...!

    MJ,

    Congratulations on a wonderful resource for people who have been told to drink the Kool-Aid, but yet refuse to. The cliche of benefiting from one good idea found in a book is not far from the truth -- I can point to at least five solid ideas I received via your tome.

    In particular, the section where you deal with "treasonous choices" was arguably the most illuminating part of the book for me. As I read your words, thoughts of "bad decisions made" danced through my head. I am dealing with the residue of some of those choices, currently. And let me tell you, sometimes I wish I can go back and smack some sense into my younger self. It would save me a lot of grief that I am dealing with, now.

    However, dwelling on the past will not help me in the future. Your book was a damn good reminder of that fact.

    Thanks again, MJ, for a much needed wake up call.:hurray:

    I'll be finishing the book today while @ work.

    The Law of Effection succinctly describes the fastlane in my opinion.

    It was definitely worth the wait, and even though I've been a steady lurker for quite some time on this site, I still learned a lot.

    I love your 5 Commandments of Business: Need, Entry, Control, Scale, and Time. Five concrete factors to determine whether or not it will be worth the time to pursue a business venture.

    I enjoyed getting the lessons hammered down into my skull of Scale and Magnitude. It really left an impression on what is needed in order to hit the fastlane.


    To sum, I feel as if I grasp the main picture on going fastlane after reading this book. Also, it was a nice kick in the ass as well.

    Thanks MJ!

    Read it two times, and I keep on re-reading Parts.
    The information is 'fundamental'.

    Thank you for this book MJ, in my opinion, an instant classic.
    ( I recommend this book any day of the year before suggesting Think and Grow Rich (gasp) and Richest Man in Babylon (nod).

    From the plans I had, and the business I'm growing, now I have goals that are ever more clear.
    Most importantly, I can now judge them as to bringing me closer to wealth (Fastlane).

    Thanks for the book, and for these forums!

    -- AJ

    I was reading think and grow rich from some recommendations and its the same as the secret. I believe in the loe and not the loa. I couldn't even keep reading it after Mjs book. I got a few others that were recommended.

    Great stuff MJ, the book is very inspiring and great insight into the entrepreneurial world.

    I read 10% of the book already. I feel like I'm on fire. Let's have a comp to see who makes a million in 1yr, you have to be honest with $0-1000 in your account already (I can be honest because I have less than $500) lol.

    I can feel the change in my mind, now I need to see the change in my bank account woohoo! ;)

    Finished the book yesterday. I found it to be inspiring and motivational. I plan to read it again. Found it was maybe not a good I idea to read the book right before bed...had trouble sleeping as my mind wandered about the books contents and possibilities :)

    I haven't read Sher's, but it's on my "must read" list (which is short, only other books on it are MJ's and a few Disney business books).

    Good to Great was the best biz book we've read in the past 5 years.

    Crush It and 4 Hour Work Week both have excellent take-aways. You needn't take them as gospel, but they're both excellent "this is how the world has changed, now change w/it" books.

    I finally finished the book a few days ago. I must admit it is the best book I have read so far that really opens up your mind in believing you can be successful and become wealthy sooner than later. I love the way MJ used the car analogies and made it easier to read so people can understand better. I, like most people, really liked the 5 commandments to wealth and have been using them almost everyday when I have a new idea pop in my head. If it doesn't meet all five or at least four, I don't even bother anymore and move on. Thanks MJ for a great book and I am sure I will be reading it many more times to keep me motivated and on the right track. Watch out fastlane! I will be merging real soon.

    I just finished last night. It really highlighted some things for me that I can't believe weren't common sense items to me previously.

    MJ, do you have a special section or thread where you want to discuss book concepts or discuss answers to questions?

    read it. It really changed my outlook on things. I was of the typical slow lane mindset(without the debt). While things financially have been going well personally and with my business I like the idea of graduating to the fastlane shooting for the home run and "early" retirement(like in the next few years, not 30 years from now).
