In essence, what this book does contain is a mental hand grenade to knock you out of whatever rut you're in and get you moving like a man on a mission. If you're looking for a sweet talking narrator with sophisticated advice on being charismatic and influential, you've come to the wrong book. This super quick read (it's only 118 pages) is the equivalent of a drill sergeant kicking you in the pants and telling you to take charge or else. Some people will love the no nonsense approach. Others will complain it's too simple and short on "how-to" steps. The value I get out of it is seeing it for it is: a jolt of reality in a world of overwritten self-help/motivational books.
For my money (bought the Kindle ebook) Chapter 9 and it's message about patience was well worth my investment of time and money. Patience isn't a trait that's encouraged these days. In fact, it's probably on the endangered species list as I write this. But if you learn the lessons of Chapter 9 and how Ben frames them within the Count of Monte Cristo story, you'll find your time and money was well worth investing in this book.
Now, I do want to clearly offer this disclaimer, as this book is not for every audience:
1 - This book is NOT for the easily offended, particularly those with no sense of humor regarding political correctness, feminism, liberalism, conscious living, or the like. To maximize your value, you must put away your white hat, and must pick up your sense of humor and understand satire. If you tend to take the ideas I listed above way too seriously, this is not a book for you.
2 - This book is a fast read and it's cheap. It is worth more pennies than it costs and if you read and implement one chapter a day, you will have more impact and make more money. From start to finish, the ideas in this book have grown my mail list, increased my following on social media, and increased the dollars flowing into my bank account (persuasion is crucial for any leader and, of course, any copywriter).
3 - If you are a woman, you can change the pronouns as needed. This book was clearly written for a male audience. Still the lessons work no matter what gender you were born with or identify with.
4 - If you only like to read non-fiction archaic textbook tomes, this book is not high brow enough for you. Even though you will get even more value far more quickly from this book than most of the highly touted big-name business books out there in the world today.
Villians is your money-shot! Download it, read it, apply it, and hit be back in a week to let me know what you thought. (I think you can hit me back on Amazon right?)
Ben doesn't waste time with this book, and instead, outlines 10 main points, turned into chapters, that can be applied to your life to make you more charismatic, and to make success a more realistic reality. His writing has punch and is engaging to read. I'll have to read it again when I feel my energy dipping, it really is a powerful book.
I've been on Ben's email list for some time and he doesn't fluff around (which I like). He bucks the trend and as he labels himself the "anti-entrepreneur" that's something that resonates with me as someone who hates conforming and following the sheep. I consider myself a contrarian.
So, I dug into this book right away and it's quick read but don't let the length fool you. In fact, anyone who judges content based upon length and how thick it is or how many pages there are, are really missing the big picture.
After reading this book, it has literally lit a fire in my belly. It's like your hockey team being down by 3-4 goals and you see guys sacrificing themselves and giving 110% to the team, you just get this passionate drive to want to say "screw you" to the world and naysayers and you come back with a gutsy performance of 5 unanswered goals to win the game.
That's what it feels like after reading this book.
Personally, I loved it and even printed out his list of "Persuasion Secrets" where I am reminded of them every...single...day.
