Unsatisfying, vague, and often unsubstantiated.
on April 17, 2011
I saw this book at Borders for 80% off, looked up the Amazon reviews, and bought it based on the reviews. What a mistake. I wish I had my $3.60 AND my time back. This book is not at all well-written in terms of grammar and economy of words and it's colloquial to a fault. It's full of vague advice. Just when you think it's starting to be helpful, the section ends without any further detail. Often a single product or service is recommended when numerous and better alternatives are available. Some of the financial and legal advice is dubious for someone who says he is training to be a lawyer AND a financial advisor. Some of the advice is helpful, though much of it is unsubstantiated. Save your money and buy books such as "Get Clients Now" by C.J. Hayden, and anything by Seth Godin and/or Harry Beckwith. Worst of all, is the author's relentless self-promotion and lists of achievements. The author is likely not familiar with the proverb, "me, me, me is boring, boring, boring." Overall, the book reminds me of American Idol tryouts where self-delusional kids have been told that they are great singers by everyone close to them, yet no one with actual singing experience has guided them. This book does NOT deserve to go to Hollywood.
