This is a very easy read. The vocab is very simple and the concepts are broken down and explained very well. The ideas are not only applicable to businesses and career oriented people, but life in general. I really liked this book and what it has to offer.

I've never been a huge reader, but this book had me hooked from start to finish. I've always heard that "the harder you work, the luckier you get", but this delineates the truthfulness of that principal. The way Mr. Llopis puts it all together is masterful, with a distinct hint of his personality. I highly recommend this book to all entrepreneurs, sale-people, parents, friends, students, or anyone that is looking to "climb the ladder".

I chose the book because it suggested a different way of doing and seeing. I'm disappointed in that it is merely a tease and advertisement to join and/or subscribe rather a complete work in itself. Where's the beef?

In this book Mr. Llopis teaches 4 important skills that I can learn how to develope in my career, business and my life. The first one is, seeing with circular vision. Second, Sowing Entrepreneural Seeds. Third, Growing Seed of Greatest Potential. Fourth, Sharing the Harvest. Sharing the Hravest skill is the one skill that stuck out to me the most because it's not always about you, you have to focus on meeting other people's need to improve yours as Mr. Llopis states. This reading was not tough at all I understood everything without having to go back and re read it. If you wanna succeed in your career I recommend to read this book. I loved this quote from Mr. Llopis also, "You are your most immediate and on-going opportunity."

Although this book is recommended for people working in the business world and others learning about business, I would personally recommend this book to everyone. This book does not just teach you how to succeed in the business world, it teaches you how to succeed in every endeavor you go after. The concept of earning your own luck may seem a little far fetched, but Glenn Llopis explains it in four simple steps. This book is such an easy read because he uses everyday language to explain a complex topic. May favorite part about Earning Serendipity is that it challenged me in ways I never knew I needed to be challenged in.

This book is a good read and i got a lot out of it. I learned that its not about who you know in the business world but its about taking advantage of what you are good at and know who you are and do what you want. this book made me realize I should never settle but i should do what I have always wanted. I recommend this book if your a person who would just take any job because this book will make you want to go get your dream job. its a really easy read and it gives great advice on how you should live in the work area. I met the author and you can see the passion he has for this book and what it stands for.

Earning Serendipity was a great read. Beyond giving great advice, the book goes deeper by telling you how to achieve success in your own life and helping others at the same time. I did not have to sit all day and read the book, i was able to read it one time through and retain all the information i found pertinent to my own life. I have been lucky enough to speak with Dr. Llopis on more than one occasion, and believe me, the man knows what he is talking about. He is very wise and experienced and everyone will benefit one way or another by reading this book. I give it an A++!
