I recently discovered and read Unscripted as part of my research towards developing a semi-long-term plan for my life. I honestly somewhat expected a “guru-style” book about entrepreneurship given how much of this guru content seems to be on the web nowadays. I was pleasantly surprised, and it changed my perception of business, money and value. It also brought my attention to and challenged areas in which I held a fixed mindset.

After finishing the book, I took action. I identified a pain point in my life: recently a webapp I used frequently at work went down. For weeks I had thought “I wish someone would build a replacement so I could use it again”. And then I realized that someone could be me. I already knew HTML and CSS but had never explored JavaScript. I did a lot of googling, coding, googling, coding… and a few days later my site was up and better than the original, with a cleaner, more responsive UI and better supporting educational content.

So far (in the last week or so since launch) I’ve had ZERO visitors! But that’s okay – I haven’t started marketing (learning how to now) and I’m confident that once I do, I’ll attract and maintain users thanks to the relative value that it provides. Besides that, the feeling of putting something into the world that can solve at least one person’s problem (my own and hopefully others) was addicting. Unscripted effectively gave me permission to do that, and I think it’s changed my life.

I have read UNSCRIPTED! Namely, a few months ago while driving for Amazon. I just forgot to post. I must say, I loved the book and gained so much from it that is going to be with me for a long time. It made so much sense and was such a huge motivator in planning my escape from the 9-5 (working for someone else).

I am happy to say that as I turn 29 tomorrow on New Years, I have just finished my very first digital product that I have been working on on and off for months now. It feels like a HUGE weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. I will probably end up reading this book again in the future. I really want to sponge every bit of it into my mind.

If you haven't read the book, what are you waiting for? DO IT!

Finished it 2 weeks ago and never before had i had so much fun reading a book on finance.

I realised that you dont need to use smiley faces to be funny. There isnt a single smiley in this book but man, did it crack me up several times. MJ DeMarco has a great sense of humor that can make you laugh out so loudly that the people in the next room begin to think "is he watching a stand-up comedy?" But you are just reading a book.

Besides great humor, this book has the truth that other guys in the industry dont share. The truth is to become a real fastlaner, you need to switch teams by moving away from consumers and joining producers. MJ said "Stop consuming so much and start producing. Look at businesses from a producer perspective. Instead of buying their stuff, learn from them. How did they pursuade you to click on their product or videos?" Boy, was this an eye opener.

I am a youtuber who owns a small youtubr channel and in the past i used to just watch videos on the recommended page but now, im studying them like a scientist with a magnifying glass. For the first time in my life, I took a screen shot of the recommended page on youtube to study the thumbnails and titles closely and it all happened thanks to MJ DeMarco and a guy named James Jani.

Thank you so much for opening my eyes!

Yep, definitely read Unscripted.

I'm really impressed at how MJ calls out the BS surrounding the "get rich slowly" script (Mutual Funds, ETFs, etc.).

I'm glad to join this community and start on the path of breaking a lot of self-limiting beliefs.

I just only have 20 pages to go before I'm finished.

But, this book changed my perspective on entrepreneurship. I always believed you had to have a highly creative mind to be an entrepreneur which I now know is nonsense. My only problem is how I can execute some of my ideas.

I've read it, I've recommended it, and I've gifted it for X-mas.
I highlighted something almost on every page.
I downloaded the kindle version so it goes with me everywhere I go.

Thanks MJ!

Aaaand just finished my Audible listen for Unscripted :)

To be honest, the first, say, quarter dragged on a bit, but starting from Part 3 it became very motivating and satisfying. Packed even more detail-punch than TMF. :)

Exciting to start putting this into practice.
Worked on a CENTS analysis of a business idea while waiting at the doctor’s office, that’s how inspiring this was.

I have read unscripted along with my many reads of the millionaire Fastlane in the past year. I gave a longer description in the form "I read The millionaire's Fastlane".

Both of these books have helped my life and like a meditation helped focus my thoughts and all my ideas. Both of these books were like the bridge between what I currently know and where I wanted to be.

Hi everyone.
There are plenty of "I's" in this comment, as it expresses MY PERSONAL opinions about the books.
I've read both of the books, and I've gone and searched also for some reviews for these books. Obviously, it had a really high number of positive reviews well deserved, but I was most interested in the negative reviews. So I went and read a few of them. Of course, everyone is entitled to his/her's own opinion, but even so, I'm amazed about how people see things sometimes. But, I've heard that there's no man that smart to make an idiot understand that he's an idiot...that's true. I remember one review that was referring to the author's big ego.
If it were like that, in the end, who gives a f*ck? The book has really valuable content.
Another referring to the repeatability of ideas. Repeatability is the mother of f*kn learning. It emphasizes the importance of one thing. So that it gets imprinted into your brain.
For those who haven't read the books, I would like to say that this is not a novel, nor is it excellent in literature, but not bad written either. It is a book about mindset and how one could put into practice dreams or ideas. And yes, it is for everyone! And yes, it is awesome!
Both are excellent books, that I recommend with absolutely no doubt, to anyone. These books are not telling what you like to hear, but what you need to hear! So if you get offended while reading them(this I think is the cause for shitty reviews) well you can only get offended if you act like a sidewalker. Be happy that you discovered that, and that you can learn how to act differently, instead of writing shitty reviews, only because you somehow felt offended by the fact that you've recognized yourself in that role of a sidewalker.
I've also read other authors, but so far I can only say that this book is no.1 in this niche, of course, from my own pov. I haven't read them all...
I can also confirm that I've written an email to the author after, I've wished to see if he still read his emails if he is still practicing what he says. Easy to guess, he did reply. And I do appreciate that, as I'm sure that is somedays physically impossible to reply because of the high numbers of emails.
I have, let's say, a pretty good position in the corporate world, even though I've chosen a few years ago to take a break and go on my own. That was before reading the books. I recommend them no matter the age, profession, sex, race...Do yourself a favor, and read at least one. And when you're done, read it again, because repeatability is ...
Personally, I recommend Unscripted over TMF, as it covers the topic in a bit more detail, just as the writer intended to.
I'm not native English, so please excuse me if there are any typo's in my comment.
About the writer, I personally don't appreciate him for being rich, or for finding a way to do that(although he deserves appreciation for his work and struggle, no doubt), but I appreciate him most for leaving a print into this world, a positive one that will or has changed lives. For sharing his true thoughts, in order to spread these good teachings. He preaches about how to fish, which as we all know is more important than if he would give you 2-3 fishes...


Have a great day, dear reader of my comment ;)

I read the book. It gave me huge insights about providing value vs thinking about how you can make the most money. This should be a book that every entrepreneur reads before starting.
