A longtime fan of Jon Nastor's Hack the Entrepreneur podcast, I finally picked up his HTE book last week and found it to be filled with useful actionable advice and food for thought for both aspiring and practicing entrepreneurs. Each chapter leads with a key quote from entrepreneurs who are killing it or who have survived challenges in their entrepreneurial activities. Haston's brevity and keen focus throughout the book makes this a fast but fulfilling read. I have pulled and reassembled a lot of valuable, actionable insights from the book that I refer to as need arises.
If you haven't tried Jon's podcast, I highly recommend it as one of the best out there. You'll meet a lot of important but not necessarily well known entrepreneurs who are conquering challenges while acquiring lots of valuable information you can apply directly and/or indirectly to your own specific challenges. This book is an excellent companion to Naston's one-two HTE punch.
This is not your typical business tactics books. It's a "get your head right" kinda book that breaks down how simple entrepreneurship really is. The book is positioned towards newer entrepreneurs, but having been an entrepreneur for years, I got a lot of value out of it.
I've got a new project I'm working on so this book was very relevant to what I'm going through right now. I also get Jon's weekly emails and his are one of the very few that I have to read every Sunday when they come in. He's not a fly by night just looking to make a buck. He's a true entrepreneur who keeps bringing value to his tribe. Go get it today...you won't be disappointed!
Among things that I value about Jon are that he is an avid learner, he's humble, and he's brutally honest and transparent. He takes what he's learned and distilled it in this gem. It's a short book that will remind you of Seth Godin's style, being that it is digestible and to the point. It's a good summation of the things you'll need to take seriously if you're going to launch into entrepreneurism.
This book takes a lot of insights from entrepreneurs who the author has interviewed on his podcast as well as the authors own insights. There's a lot of valuable information here, broken up into small bits and pieces. It should be enough to help budding entrepreneurs get their foot in the door and get their projects going
The Good - Quick read to brush up on a lot of concepts that you probably already have read in other business-oriented self-help books. Being a reading buff, especially within the entrepreneurship and self-help genres, not a lot of the stuff offered in this book was new. Nevertheless, the book is a quick read and for me acted as a great refreshed of many great reads that I've covered throughout the past few years and offered a nice overview of what kind of mindset I must have in order to get things done.
The Bad It's fairly short, and it can be a good thing as mentioned above. If looking at it from the pessimistic perspective, it will not be a book that will go into a lot of detail why something works, it will simply tell you that it does. Also, if you've read many self-help classics, there's not much new, groundbreaking material here.
Conclusion I am giving this book 5 stars, aren't I? This book helped me refresh all the necessary fundamentals of successful entrepreneurs, hence I give it a big thumbs up. If you don't want to reread all the great self-help classics and waste a week, give this a skim and you'll be up to speed. If, however, you're looking for groundbreaking research, look elsewhere. Groundbreaking research-based books are Thinking Fast and Slow, The Outliers, and The Power Of Habit. If you read all three, you'll find out that their research data is interconnected, one book influencing the other.
Jon does it again! His podcasts shoot straight to the heart of the entrepreneurial experience, and now he's created a companion book that highlights the most important concepts in entrepreneurship. The format of the book makes the information accessible - you don't have to plow through dense paragraphs. Jon has obviously mastered the art of writing only what needs to be written. I love flipping through it and taking a dip into the different sections for cogent observations from entrepreneurs engaged in the fight right now. Just as I share the Hack the Entrepreneur podcast with every entrepreneur I meet (and those who should be) so will I share this book. By the way, the book has been out for 6 days and I've already gifted it twice.
This book contains a lot of things you already know. However, there are quite a few nuggets of genuine wisdom in the book too. They're not always immediately obvious, or laid out in an order that might help that, but they're there, and you have but to read to get them. The author has interviewed quite a few entrepreneurs & distilled quite a bit of the knowledge from that down for the reader. The book gets better as you go along, so definitely stick with it, and you'll be glad you did.
I have been anticipating this book since I learned about it months ago. I've been following Nastor's podcast for over a year now, even emailed him how awesome he is. But this manifesto of timeless and crucial development has me speechless.... It's as if he has literally taken my brain and scanned it for questions and the real deal of what I needed to literally get pushed into the water. If I were to quote anything I feel like I'd be spoiling something for you. Finally something all the other business books I've purchased that is collecting dust on my bookshelf hasn't covered and might I add exactly what I needed. I definitely do consider this a business must and can not wait to share it on my blog.
Amazing move! Literally has the game in check mate!
