"On a sales and marketing level, Not Taught is an achievement. Although at times both patronizing and provoking, it buzzes with electricity. The dialogue is pure, unfiltered, adrenalized Keenan. It imbues the author's many fervent dialogues with the narrative equivalent of a car chase."
From the Back Cover
"Irreverent AND highly relevant. In his own inimitable style, Keenan kicks your butt as he shows you what's needed to be successful in today's world."

This was poorly written with an overabundance of gratuitous foul language that certainly doesn't add anything to a work of non-fiction. Substantially a rehash of career building ideas that have been widely covered elsewhere.
My biggest eye openers: 1) Importance on your social reach. 2) Brand YOU. 3) Everything has changed.
Chapter 5 "Have the Balls to Make it Happen". Man, nothing left to say after that chapter (WOW).
4) Experience vs Expertise. 5) Time vs results. 6) Deliberate learning.
Really eye-opening, highly entertaining. Love the energy he brings to the book. I couldn't put it down, a MUST read! The sales profession has changed, we need change or get left behind.
Do yourself a favor and just click the "Look Inside" button and check the table of contents. How about you take 1 minute to skim the first few pages? Is that too much of a commitment? I didn't think so. Next - click that "Buy it Now" button, set aside some time and invest in yourself!
Also, I think the book could have been improved by removing repetitive advice and providing more real-life success stories that were relevant to the author's message. Those kinds of stories in self-improvement books help to support the author's message. They also serve as a nice break from the constant barrage of advice.
This book spoke to me on such a level, that I hired Keenan to be the Keynote speaker at our annual sales conference. And you know what? He freaking crushed it. And I mean crushed it. We had so many of our sales force come in there with the mindset of this guy doesn't know this, doesn't know that, etc.. And they were all blown away. I had given up on some of my people, but here we are two weeks later and they are still talking about it. In short, do your self a favor and buy this book, and hire Keenan to speak at your company. It is worth it! AND I RARELY WRITE REVIEWS!
This book reveals why your degree is less valuable today than it was 25 years ago; why your professional experience doesn't count for squat in today's workforce; why employers really don't care about how hard you work (and what they do care about); what your most valuable personal asset is and how to leverage it; how to become a true thought leader; and why an inability to sell will severely limit you.
"Your degree is not a proxy for your ability to do any job. The world only cares about -- and pays off on -- what you can do with what you know (and doesn't care how you learned it)."
This book teaches you how to flat out execute. This book will change the way you approach success. Period. Not Taught: What It Takes to be Successful in the 21st Century that Nobody's Teaching YouNot Taught: What It Takes to be Successful in the 21st Century that Nobody's Teaching You
Finally, someone that explains it like it is and how to overcome things you don't know. I suggest getting out the higher lighter and taking notes because this book will be relevant for years to come.
Now that 10 minute explanation has been reduced to 1 simple sentence:" Read Keenan's book Not Taught". Well done Keenan!
