Just an FYI ...

The Millionaire Fastlane was recently updated and "refreshed". Those changes are now live on most eBook platforms and will start happening in print by late July, early August. If you purchased the eBook version somewhere, you should be able to download the updated version at no charge.

While the basic content of the book has not changed (the content is transcendent, so not much needed changing -- and yes, not many people will notice any significant changes) here are some of the things that were updated...

  1. Improved editing.
  2. I updated my "current lifestyle" (my lifestyle has changed a bit in 8 years, for instance "old TMF " says I have a mortgage -- I haven't had a mortgage in 7 years. I also haven't owned a Lambo in just as many years.)
  3. Re-arranging of "CENTS" chapters into CENTS.
  4. Some updated statistics to reflect more recent data
  5. Various updates to reflect a more modern time, for instance, cryptocurrency.
Again, very subtle differences that very few will detect. IMO, it reads much better.

While I could have labeled the newer TMF as a "new edition" I decided to keep it the same simply because a reader who read it in 2011 might not see any difference than the 2018 version other than it has some 2017 statistics and references.

TMFL is a timeless classic! This book has changed me and my life forever. I am so thankful. I just wish I would have found it sooner!

Makes sense, lol. Sorry couldn't help myself...

Thanks for telling us the difference- I still plan to get the new print version after I finish Walter's books. :)

Any updates on the hardback ?

Is going to have a Spanish version? Greeeeat! A lot of people around me avoid to read it because their level of English is less than basic.

I always say that it's worth to learn English just to be able to read it :D

Something about hearing your voice MJ and your old videos on YouTube that just kicks my a$$ and makes sure I don’t get entangled in the script thinking!

+1.

@MJ DeMarco You're an awesome speaker.

Grateful for your videos old and new.

@MJ DeMarco

A little late to this post, but thanks for the updates!

As much as they might be little updates... they will be beneficial to us readers and it will be great to see how your lifestyle has changed over the years.

I am also excited to see the CENTS framework uniform throughout the books now.

I just got to the CENTS piece of Unscripted . Most excellent.

After reading it, I realized that was one of my favorite things about these books/ideas/philosophy...The diagrams and systems that MJ created. Such simple and well explained concepts. Why aren't these taught in schools?

This shit is gold.

Because the knowledge on how to escape your economic slavery isn't good for the status quo ... in ancient times, slaves weren't taught how to read or write, much less how to shoot a gun. In modern times, you won't be taught how to escape the system, but will be taught how to become part of it.

If you had kids, hypothetically, would you homeschool them? I'm nowhere near being ready for kids in my life, but this thought has crossed my mind. There are schools that don't put kids through the same crap we went through, and embedding these ideas early in life is such a powerful position to grow from.

That being said, its clearly never too late to begin...here we all are :)

I think you will find this thread to your liking.

Is in the Kindle version yet? I was checking and it doesn't appear so and I purchased this a while ago.

So I assume it should just be available is how it will work? I've never really looked closely at Kindle and how they update versions.

Yea I just tried to delete the local version and re-download it and it's still showing 2011 as the copyright date. I see the downloaded sample has 2011,2018 so it's definitely the old version still on Amazon's Kindle.

Nevermind I figured it out, you must visit amazon.com and in the management of your books you can select it to update. I wish Amazon would tell you there was an update and give you an option to just update the book.

Quick question MJ.

I loved TMF on audible. More so because you were the narrator.

While the content of Unscripted is undoubtedly fantastic, I wish you had narrated it.

Any chance of a new edition with you as the narrator?

Ashish.
