in the 18 or 19 months since my "F*ck this" event I haven't listened to music (huge for me as it used to be my career) or any kind of radio. I spend 2 - 2.5 hours per day in my car, commuting each way to my slave-den. Instead, I know consume books (Audible). In the past several months I have consumed:
  • Side Hustle: Build a side business and make extra money - without quitting your day job
  • Inspired: How to Create Tech Products Customers Love, Second Edition
  • The Upstarts: How Uber, Airbnb and the Killer Companies of the New Silicon Valley Are Changing the World
  • The Everything Store
  • The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life
  • Chaos Monkeys: Inside the Silicon Valley Money Machine
  • Crushing It
  • Elon Musk
  • The Hard Thing About Hard Things
  • Powerful: Building a Culture of Freedom and Responsibility (the netflix book)
  • Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us
  • Business for punks
  • Rework
  • Zero to One
Several others.... and now as of today: Unscripted.

I can confidently say that Unscripted is the best one I have consumed thus far.

I'm not in the habit of gushing or blowing smoke up someone's a$$. However I'm also not in the habit of being able to communicate directly with the author of a fantastic book.

@MJ DeMarco - Unscripted wasn't life changing to me, it was life affirming. I now have a name for what happened to me 18 months ago (FTE). I now have a name for the life I'm currently leading (scripted) and the life that I'm building (Unscription).

I'm not saying I didn't learn anything... I learned a shit ton from your book. But I also read a lot of what I'm already doing, what I already believe, and what I have already come to understand on my own. It's extremely validating and extremely motivating.

I won't go on. Suffice is to say thank you for the great writing and free thinking.

Now, tomorrow morning's commute is the start of TMF. Can't wait.

Cheers

Yah! Glad you enjoyed!

That goes a bit more into the mathematics of creating wealth. And the writing is a little different since I wrote both 10 years apart. Hope you enjoy that as well. I think Unscripted is much better, but then again, I'm years older and a different person. Thanks for the post.
