Top Customer Reviews
I'm a big fan of Neil, who is an industry EXPERT, but this book was very disappointing. Hustle is rhetorical storytelling, and is so self-absorbed that they suggest new language about the "types of hustle" ("outside/upside? really?) and appealing to millennials to "get their hustle on" and to "buck the establishment that holds you down". It's a very hard read if you were expecting any guidance, because there is none other than the obvious, generic start-your-own-business-with-your-hustle. I found myself re-reading chapters trying to identify what really was the learning point, and in many chapters there wasn't any take-away other than having now learned about another past experience that the authors had coming up in business.
This, sadly, left me wondering if this book was simply an ego-stroke for the authors to be able to say they are published.
You might think from the title that this is a book by some fast-talking sales-closer type--the sort of book that whips you up to a frenzy about how all the good stuff comes to those who hustle.
You'd be wrong.
This is a thoughtful, deep dive into what hustle means to three (eventually) successful guys from very different backgrounds.
Too many books on success talk like one long cheerleading session: the mindset, the affirmations, etc. I prefer when books are balanced, and discuss failures and self-doubts along with achievements. That's the real world, after all.
This book does that. The routes these guys have taken to success are anything but straight-line. In fact,here's a quote: "Neil had lost a million dollars by the time he was 21, one hell of a deep hole at such a young age. Jonas had a massive stroke in his twenties while working a demanding job at a start-up. Patrick quit his job without any prospects lined up and with a baby on the way." That should give you an idea that this is not your standard rah-rah session.
It's a book not about "do these 20 magic steps and you'll become rich. It's much more about what you have to do between your ears in order to set the stage for success. No latest Facebook "hacks" or gimmicks in here, I'm happy to report. It's all about the inner game between your ears.
Parts I particularly liked:
--The Cycle of Suck, and getting stuck in "Meh" thinking as a habit.
--An inspired section about job descriptions vs. the reality of what most jobs are like.
--Where to find the initial successes that get you some momentum in the right direction.
--The four kinds of luck, and how luck can be more of a science than a random event.
--The section where they ripped apart the too-tidy modern-day "rule" that says you need to spend 10,000 hours on something in order to master it.
--The virtue of not searching for the straightest line to your goals.
They made me think, and made me ask myself questions where I didn't necessarily like the answers. That's good: If I wanted pure, unquestioning happy times, I would have bought a cat calendar.
This was by far the worst most boring piece of garbage I've ever read. I'm a personal development junkie and have read over 1,000 books this book is one of maybe 5 I wasn't able to finish.
The authors of this book have no substance whatsoever they jump from story to story with no sense of direction. This is supposed to be a business book but frankly had enough substance it could of been a 5 paragraph article in a weekly digest column.
I should of known better by the title that this was just another piece of crap book thrown together for a money grab. Save your money!!
