    Read it. Love it. Will read it again. It's actionable as hell. You can feel the honesty, and the ... I dunno how to call this... 'clear mind' that was thinking while writing these pages. It's easy to call BS. It's harder to provide an alternative that really works.

    Here's an idea: remixes of the book with even more actionable stuff that is personalized. I'm in deep learning training, so advice on physical products, selling on amazon, etc would not help, and it makes the book bigger. Imagine this 'self publishing book wet dream': you select the topic you are doing business in, and the book reconfigures itself so that it helps you the most. The writer may have to think in a more modular way, but it may not bee much effort. Just drop some chapters, and stitch together an epub that is 'just what this reader needs, and not more'. It would not work for printed books.

    (Never mind, I have too many ideas and most are not worth a damn).

    You know what would be great? Stats. This forum has X people. X/n are actually applying the book. How many get to be UNSCRIPTED? After how many trials/years?

    I can start. I only read the book now. I have been in business for 10 years, and only now things are starting to click. I wonder if I've been getting better. Would my biz work better than any other one I started before? I think so. Is it because I read this book? Can't prove causality. But what if stats are going in that direction?

    I've read unscripted and I'm reading TMF all over again. These are the books you markup, tag, and keep on your desk for years to come.

    I read a ton of books as I have over 500 in my library. I normally dog ear and highlight pages as reference points of material to come back to. In Unscripted most of the book looks like it has been dog eared. So much great material.

    It was hard to finish because I just did not want to as it was that good. The hell that he describes at the first part of the book just reinforced why I have my own business and why I will not go back to the Scripted life.

    I'm glad to hear how MJ moved away from Chicago to somewhere different where he felt he could be more productive as that is a decision I have made/struggled with recently. The business advice was amazing, and I am currently changing paths because of his description about services for companies being hard to execute (he's right.

    So much useful stuff was in this book. The hyper reality section is absolutely and could be its own book in of itself. Just a great reminder to the constant distractions out there created by companies to make money. Making your first sale is "entrepreneurial heroin", and he is completely right. $2740 a day is my goal currently to get to a million dollars.

    "Let the fools be fooled by the inadequacy messages succumb: debt, uncertain future, and work until death. Don't waste life's precious time adorning your coffin with diamonds." Goddamn. The book was full of other eye opening stuff like this that other authors, gurus, and people do not have the guts to say. MJ has truly created something that will stand the test of time, and you really need to read this book.

    Just finished it. 18-months after Millionaire Fastlane. It's another great rant to keep up the motivation.

    Listened to Unscripted via Audible a few months back and was just reminded by the pdf supplement on my desktop to come and check the forum out.

    This book should be read alongside the equally brilliant Entrepreneur Revolution.

    I've read Unscripted and am on my second listen through the audiobook. This was a great follow up and complement to The Millionaire Fastlane. Thanks again, MJ!

    I’ve read Unscripted and listen to it constantly while driving throughout the day. Much better than music or talk radio.

    Read. Thank you.

    Just after finishing TMF purchased UNSCRIPTED.

    YES:

    • More RAW than TMF - much more colorful and appreciated language
    • Facts - bad times, good times, he put in there (choices)
    • More financial insights - BIGGER Picture
    • Again - there for the taking - lazy/blind (can't hold hands)
    • Took way more notes
    • Offers other book reads too
    • PS - there is no list

    This book looks like it was written for me, as I found in it the answers I was looking for some time that other books of the genre could not bring me. No doubt it's the best book I've ever read of the genre, and I've read enough. This book connects me to your story, because it is very similar to me. This book brought what I was doing unconsciously to my conscious, so that I can work on those problems. If I could define this book in one word, I would say CLARITY!

    I found it fantastic to have the idea of two worlds, the SCRIPTED world and the UNSCRIPTED world, thus creating a UNSCRIPTED legion.

    Plus you have not just created a UNSCRIPTED legion, you've created a method for people to get out of SCRIPTED life. And for me that's the biggest difference of the book TMF! When one has a method for anything, everything becomes easier, instead of getting you lost in a multitude of techniques, not knowing where to start.

    Let's go to work now, thank you @MJ DeMarco !

    I've read Unscripted. My biggest takeaway were the hyperrealities and the compound interest scam. Virtual Reality was my biggest one because I would spend hours playing PUBG and Call of Duty to escape life. That time could have been put into activities that would have changed my life, but at least I know now.

    I just got done reading Unscripted. I can't thank MJ enough for providing such a valuable resource. I have recommended to some of my slowlane friends that are interested in entrepreneurship. Can't wait to read TMF.

    Also, I can't believe this book is 30$!! This is the best book I have ever read and has changed my mindset significantly! Thank you again, MJ!!

    Hard to choose which one I like more, Unscripted or TMF. I feel like MJ’s writing is more thorough, witty, thought-provoking, and confident in Unscripted, but TMF is, well. the OG. Both books are definitely on my top 5 best books of all time (along with Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice! For completely different reasons, lol).

    I read a large chunk of Unscripted earlier in the year. I'm about to finish it up today. I've never highlighted anything more than this book. I will definitely be reading it again.
