5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars For The No B.S. Mindset That Comes With This Book, May 3, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The true value of this book lies in the no B.S. way Brad moulds his mindset towards business, other people and life.

The book provides you with solid steps to dealing with idiots, and training people to value your time (therefore not wasting it).

He also tells you why you should avoid business networking meetings (I agree 100% with him).

Brad tells you how much work goes on behind the 'lazy marketer' veneer. While he may claim to be lazy, he lets the reader know that he can be lazy once he has worked hard setting up a system and outsourcing customer and tech support.

Where the reader of this book won't get so much value is regarding specifics on how to make money. The chapters on SEO, traffic and copywriting are very thin. Again, the book provides a mindset primer rather than step by step (which can be found elsewhere).

One theme of the book was the need to do stuff yourself rather than reading info about how to do something. Brad gives the example of facebook ads. Rather than read a course or book on how to make facebook ads work, Brad spent thousands testing it himself. This ended up working out better for Brad rather than buying the course and not implementing anything (which is what most people do).

An obvious analogy is learning to ride a bike. Do you learn to ride a bike by reading a book? Or do you learn by riding and falling off a few times?

This book gets 5 stars from me... I read it in a day as it was an easy read.
