Now before I get this author accused of advocating American Dream-like optimism, it's important to know off the bat that Tiwari has a take-no-prisoners approach in his writing style. The details Tiwari uses to describe us modern day workers may have one feeling a little insulted. Take it as Tiwari's way of getting you off your a**, out of a job you hate, and into the type of life you want.
Mind you, this book is not designed to make you feel good. It also doesn't function as a career blueprint, nor does it operate under the premise that the Tiwari's way is the best way. If you are looking for a copy + paste type of lifestyle model among the chapters, you won't like it. It relies strictly on the reader to take initiative in moving forward.
Here's what readers can expect as takeaways from the book:
1. Finding your "tribe" by seeing your audience as your community first, and clientele second
2. How to establish an audience by getting people to listen to you by providing a service that helps them.
3. How to work with difficult people, not around them, in accomplishing your goals.
4. How to survive a mediocre job until you can afford to quit **(or what to do when office politics become to overwhelming to deal with)
5. Creating products or services that illustrate your expertise and build credibility
6. Practicing self-advocacy in the work you produced **(this is particularly the strongest point in the book. I get the overall sense that Tiwari wants to motivate readers not to be afraid to promote their strengths, and use those strengths to drive creativity)
Tiwari concludes simply by explaining the obvious: if you don't like where your life is heading, you have to be instrumental and work to change it. I recommend this book not only for those who are looking to build a rep as an expert in their industry, but also for anyone who is making the leap from consumer to producer.
