So I was reading the reviews of Unscripted on Amazon.in which had 13 5* and one 1*. Of course I wanted to see what that 1* review was.

"What this gentleman preaches in this book...About different sort of problems..
You have already know them by experience..

His so called solution ... is just telling you stories about the failure of all other method you tried....
So you develop empathy with him ...

He does not give u anything other than taking your time...
And that is good only talks you can bear...
And not any pipe dream or trasure-hunt...

In Essence , I my view when edison invented lightening system ( along with commercialization of light) ...
He said I failed 10000 times in making bulbs.. but those are not failures but learning that I know 10000 ways a bulb will not work...

In similar way..... MJ Demarco may not work for you..but it is always good & great to try....

Just know..Your time is limited..life is limited....Your energy is limited...
Luck is also limited..or say Lucky time...

Do what you already can do good..
Find your gift...
Then find work for your gift to flow...
When the Time is right..Result will follow..

Yes there is Timing ..Yes There is Luck...Yes there is God...

Listen to God's voice...And not voice coming out of your head or heart is God's voice...
Try to communicate with God..
Silence your Ego...

Let him guide you...
Amen "

Can someone decode this message and explain what he means? Weren't self-help books written to state the obvious which was invisible in our eyes?

If you see the name = Its most likely a brown guy from Indian subcontinent made a review.
He was trying to make breakdown of Demarco's work in his interpretation way
He didn't talk about result, He brought back Edison Quote & other quotes (Broke Quote Philosopher I guess) and trying to compare with Demarco

The Best Part of this low review = It gives indirect success about Demarco

I don't mean to bring politics here and here is the quote and it reminds me this:

“Good publicity is preferable to bad, but from a bottom-line perspective, bad publicity is sometimes better than no publicity at all. Controversy, in short, sells.” ― Donald J. Trump, Trump: The Art of the Deal

The Point from my angle, If I read someone's book or work, and it resonates with me in my real life, I would rather read it and do some experiment out of it

"What this gentleman preaches in this book...About different sort of problems..

He's basically saying "you can't learn to swim by reading a book, at some point you need to get into the water to understand what's being taught here"

Everything else is basically his version of a motivational speech - saying it's good to try and learn from failures but don't expect miracles and what's in the book may very well not work for you.

In short - it's basically your typical anti-self-help commentary.
