    Done!
    Need something like a week for the thoughts to run free, then will probably read again, taking notes this time. I think this one is even better than the first one, in terms of entrepreneur's guide - less compromising, more insightful. Loved it!

    Read it.

    In my introduction thread I wrote that one aspect in The Millionaire Fastlane did not vibe quite right with me.
    I felt that - in the home stretch - legit issues that people have were too easily dismissed as excuses, even though the book had not sufficiently made a case for that evaluation.

    I wondered if UNSCRIPTED was going to be just a rehash of TMF plus a few forum anecdotes.
    What I did not expect was that the book would actually have a "look, ... about those excuses that I dismissed earlier ..." part. But it does. And that part has a lot of substance.

    Then, the original big picture concepts and the little distinctions that are introduced are all awesome additions to the ones of TMF.
    I am glad I did not postpone reading the book. I have made several very concrete adjustments to my strategy and my immediate plans.

    It's 10 days later and I'm done with #UNSCRIPTED : )

    I was on a productivity/business books binge this summer with TMF and UNSCRIPTED being the last two books on the list. Now I think I'll have to press pause on these topics until my brain processes the all the information MJ served and I adjust my life and my business. It really felt like a huge sum up of everything I've learned before plus tons of new info, followed by an execution plan.

    Thank you once again! The blindfold is definitely off.

    First TMFL and now UNSCRIPTED. Very good books to say the least.
    I always hated the SCRIPT and stomaching 9-5's were something i never could fully wrap my ahead around. Probably why i worked sales type jobs with flexibility in the schedule and/or people not breathing down my back telling me what to do. Anyway, none of that matters now. This book goes details the SCRIPT vs UNSCRIPTED and like TMFL gives more of a foundational template for working ones way toward an UNSCRIPTED LIFE.

    Definitely will be used as an ongoing point of reference.

    Before leaving my corporate 'steady job' three months ago part of me had that fear like what am I doing leaving a steady check, benefits, 401k, options, etc. But I also felt that I just couldn't go on like that and I knew I could make something happen..Thankfully, my wife was completely supportive of me going after what i want - my own business / something I created and run. I reason due to her father and his father being entrepreneurs has possibly caused her to see things more UNSCRIPTED than the average bear and not be locked into me always having a 9-5 SCRIPTED life, etc.

    Read it. Probably the best book on that specific topic i have read.

    Who is the marketing god who buys up small ecommerce businesses and turn them into money machines a half year later? Can i read his story on this forum?

    Read it. Not as impactful as TMF but I would say it's overall a better book. I read it twice actually, and planning to do a third time in the future.

    I've read it, too. What I like about it is the concept of unscripting your life to see what is really important. Many people are wasting their time and don't want to take responsibility without knowing that this lifestyle is destructive in it's nature.

    Does it count if we've finished the Audible audiobook? Because if so, I've read it! Fired up more than ever, thank you for all that you've done for us, MJ.

    If Unscripted were a meme it would be the gentlemen holding up a middle finger saying "I quit!" Excellent book and definitely added kindle to an already burning fire for freedom I have.

    TMF was so good, I immediately bought and read Unscripted... and it was even better!

    Thank you MJ for the inspiration I needed to put the pedal down and pull into the fastlane :)

    I finished reading this book twice (just as I did for TMF). It's updated and filled with useful information, especially regarding Kinetic Execution.

    Execution is where INTPs such as myself face the most difficulty - conjuring up ideas or blowing all the hard earned money away on booze is hardly an issue.

    Finally! @MJ DeMarco great read. Highly recommend it, and I could go out and say a fantastic second book follow up. The only complaint I had was, boy... was it long! I'll probably do a followup and share my thoughts and love to hear yours on why your frame of thinking.

    Unscripted is fabulous reading, a real mental jolt awake from mediocrity. It has inspired me to use the Kaizen principle and take small but deliberate actions daily.

    I've listened it. Great book and I would say it is extended "TMF", with many more details.

    I've listened and re-listened. It's in my Audible app so I take it everywhere I go. Thanks MJ.

    I decided to buy Unscprited before TMF. Just finished last night. I plan to reread a lot of the middle chapters.

    The stuff on the feedback loop is gold. It applies to many areas of life I believe.

    I listened to UNSCRIPTED on Audible, and I felt my brain being rewritten every minute. It gave a clear voice to many things that had been vaguely bothering me in life. It was mind expansion equal to listening to ANTIFRAGILE for the first time. I'm adopting many of the concepts from this and TMF and am excited to see where they take me.

    I finished TMF a couple weeks ago, now I've finished Unscripted. I read the book as I listened to the audible so that it soaked it in thoroughly. I loved TMF for the exposure of showing me that I didn't know squat about entrepreneurship. I love the feeling when in hindsight all the things I didn't know that I didn't know, that now I know.

    Both books are gold, but I think integrating the mindset that Unscripted lays down will be the crucial foundation for execution.

    So much for my local passion oriented side hustles. I've got to read through the forum and make some decisions.
