    Just finished the book today. Like the last one, this book opens your eyes and really makes you think. Unscripted goes even more deeper than TMF. Really powerful stuff, loved it!

    Thanks MJ, I learned a lot.

    Wow, I have to be honest - I did not pre-order Unscripted because I thought it was going to be self-indulgent and not provide direction, even though I loved The Millionaire Fastlane. But after finally finishing Unscripted, I have to say it is a much better book than Millionaire Fastlane. It's everything that Millionaire Fastlane is, paradagm-shifting with good guidance, but much more nuanced and well written. Thank you MJ!

    Damn. It was by far one of the most entertaining yet valuable books I have read in a very long time.

    My only concern at first was that it made me feel nervous due to all the negativity and "bitching" about the stuff happening around us.

    But after the very few first chapters, MJ was really coming home with all the advice and mindset on how to think about life and entrepreneurship.

    Truly a masterpiece, I wish more and more people read it.

    Keep bringing it MJ :D

    Yea a concern, but ultimately I was trying to create an emotional connection, pain, with the reader. Pain motivates.

    The first few chapters felt like I was being held down while a red pill was shoved in my mouth and kicked down my throat.

    It worked!

    Finished reading unscripted yesterday. I've noticed a lot of the advice/business/progress threads (even some notable) are/or were about the exact things Unscripted shits on. Now literally feel like every business idea I've been trying to decide to put my focus on is Categorized in the BRO Entrepreneurs/E-commerce bullshit pile. Time to start over. :arghh: This time really try to pinpoint something that brings in tremendous value to others.

    Guess it was just more of a wakeup call than MFL :thumbsup:

    Finally got around to buying it last week and just finished the audible version. Loved it.

    The first parts of the book were incredibly relatable. Even to the scrubbing toilets part, which was also one of the shit (literal) jobs I held when I was younger.

    You've managed to put so many things into words that I've always struggled to verbalize or explain to others. I'm going to steal the gumball bit the next time I need to explain to someone how "luck" works.

    While I liked the narrator, I feel like this book is better read on paper, so I'm going to order the paperback version now for a re-read.

    My Kindle is right there on the table, the last page of UNSCRIPTED still open.

    In that small digital device lies the book, now finished, but most importantly, in that book lies a promise I've just made to myself.

    Thank you @MJ DeMarco !

    While the entire book is mind blowing, one of the parts that struck me most was Chapter 48 about the money system. I think it's a point I didn't quite get from TMF.

    Hello, I've just finished UNSCRIPTED.

    It is even more inspiring than TMF. I'm sure I will dive in this book many times in the future.
    Out of this first read, the main thing I take to heart is : Act in order to create value, not to get money. Be willing to give to others and act one step at a time, one challenge at a time.

    If I had not read it, I would still be learning to code while not knowing what I would use this knowledge for.
    Now, my mindset is : what is the challenge in front of me ? What do I need to learn to overcome it ? Then do it :)

    Thanks so much MJ!

    I'm still reading it, but I have the "Unescripted" mindset even before I read TMF four years ago.

    I'm strugling to have a "Unscripted" life ;-)

    Excelent book !!!

    Dear MJ and all forum users,

    My name is Alessio and I came from Italy.

    I read TMF and understood that marketing is the queen on a fastlane strategy.
    But, I just finished today to read "Unscripted" and I have a little doubt in my head. That's about MJ POV about marketing in this book.


    When he talks about the productocracy he said that "pull" the product with marketing and advertising it means that the product is not so useful or requested by the market. Book said that if you follow the productocracy, the word of mouth will do the rest and will make know your product to the world.

    But, by contrast, reading about "finding fastlane ideas", number 10 is about marketing arbitrage and how to re-define a product with marketing to increase his value and profit from it.

    So, these two point of view, if I can say, makes me overthinking about Unscripted principles.

    I agree with MJ principle that pushing too much with marketing means that product does not meet the market needs and it is perceived as fluff.
    Meanwhile, transform an old dated website into a trendy website (like the example in #10 fastlane idea) does not it mean to increase the value of a product that would otherwise not be needed from the market?

    thanks a lot to all the users that can help me with their reply

    I loved the book and it's lack of political correctness. It really reinforced a few concepts that I had let slip to the back of my mind after reading TMF.

    Thank you!

    Listened to the audiobook, and purchased on Kindle. Definitely getting a hard copy :)

    Damn MJ - as if TMF wasn't heavy hitting enough. Particularly loved the early content about hyper-realities.
