    Now that there's several hundred out there in the wild, guess it is time to start a thread for those of you who have read (or listened to!) UNSCRIPTED!

    Definitely said exactly what people need to hear.

    Finished it last night. Many nights I wanted to go to sleep early only to find myself still awake reading and reading. I would definitely read it again - and will.

    Really liked it. In fact, I'm going to have to read it again. It's like a blast of ice-cold water for somebody sitting in a warm bathtub of mediocrity.

    Wanted to see a bit more in developing the Unscripted Mindset, but I suspect that's more about my anxiety than a flaw in the book.

    Read it. Thanking the universe for providing me with at least one FTE.
    And to MJ -- thanks for putting UNSCRIPTED in my hands!

    I just finished reading UNSCRIPTED.

    I highly recommend it. It definitely stands alone from The Millionaire Fastlane. I like how you used the UNSCRIPTED Entrepreneurial Framework to describe the different aspects of becoming unplugged from what's expected/considered "normal."

    One of the biggest takeaways for me was the contradiction of having to trade time in order to get time back. And, the recommendation of completely forgetting about it in the short term. It helps to keep me focused as I move forward. Sometimes I get too caught up in how much time I spend on things.

    I had a good LOL moment at the GrumpyCat comment too! haha

    Thanks for writing another awesome book.

    Read the first 5 chapters but when I try to buy at amazon says that "the book will be auto released on May, 23."

    Where did you guys read the entire book from?

    Read the whole book and finished it a few weeks back (thank you for the early release). It was brilliant, but now it's making waking up for my slowlane job harder every day.

    Took a lot of notes and most importantly, I've been able to narrow down exactly what I want to do for my fastlane business. I'm in the early stages of the execution, but still very excited (identified a need/pain point, researched what's already out there, examined current pricing for similar services, identified common complaints about bad customer service experience for my future competitors that I can take advantage of, etc).

    My favorite line from the book - "Momentum paralysis keeps you chained to your past while wasting away your future."

    Read it.

    Prob took me a week of little reads here and there. My favorite time was during the day while sitting on my front porch during the warm temps and cool breeze, thinking to myself "glad I can do things like this without being in a cubicle getting micro-managed".

    Many of the things in the book I have been telling people for years and wanted to put into words myself. I guess now I can just start gifting this and FL to people instead.

    Here this damn thread is. Yup, read it, loved it, and waiting not so patiently for the audiobook!

    Ps, I find that reading Unscripted in my car at work between calls very ironic and satisfying :D

    I finished reading UNSCRIPTED, and it was a smack in the face. I've been wasting far too much time living my SCRIPTED life, and fooling myself into believing I was working towards the Fastlane. This is a beefy philosophical tome, and it fits like a glove with TMF. Loved it. Starting it again, this time with a highlighter and notes for how to implement in my life.

    @MJ DeMarco do you plan on doing an Audible release for this one as well? I really enjoyed hearing Fastlane in your own voice... I feel like I got more out of it that way. Hope you do.

    Same for me and I loved every second of it. The author has a way with words that instill chills and goosebumps all over your body haha. Sounds kinda weird lol. I envy MJ because he's so wise. How does one get so wise? Love the unscripted theme!

    Read it and wished it never ended. Very easy to read and loved every minute it took to read through the 400+ pages.

    Just finished it yesterday. I must say you can definitely tell you did your homework and put a ton of effort and thought into creating something great. I liked how you went into depth moreso in the money system and putting it in the back of the book was like the cherry on top! I'll be picking up the audiobook also when it's released.

    Yikes, one week until release. :wideyed:

    Unfortunately the audiobook might not make the release date. It is finished and I am waiting for the ACX QA approval which, according to them, can take up to 2 weeks. Keeping my fingers crossed!
