Stimulating material poorly adapted

As a 22 year old and senior in college, this book is making me consider my long term future more than I ever have before. However, there are sections that do not fit the audiobook medium well: you will be read web page addresses ("foobar.com/foo/bar.html") and other information that is intended to point you in the right direction. I wish the webpages had not been included because they age the book and interrupt the flow of the material.

How does this apply to me?

As a truck driver, I could not figure out how this system would work for me? Maybe if I was an owner/operator, but as a company driver, I don't have much choice in the loads I haul.

Bottom Line: Get a new job!

This Book is Dangerous

This book is dangerous because after listening to it one believes that they can become a millionaire tycoon. The process is put to the listener’s ear easy enough. The problem is executing it without owning a company.

Still, this book inspires, and gives one great ideas on how to achieve financial independence. That’s why it still gets five stars from me.

A Solid "Make You Think" Book

The book doesn't teach you how to sit on the beach drinking cocktails while making millions of dollars...but it does give a LOT of useful information that pushes you to rethink the way you go about business and even if you only take 10% to heart you'll be ahead of most other people...and in this kind of economy I'm happy to get any edge I can.
