    "Undiluted snake oil"

    The author offers an easy 5 step plan to fortune and success. Everybody can do it. As a bonus, there is a hidden message in the book which he refers to often. In the epilogue he tells you to keep searching for the hidden message, which, if found, will turn you into a super productive successful key person of influence?

    Does that sound too good to be true? That's because it is. He collects a bunch of personal experiences and platitudes, not hindered by any research, and simply claims over and over again that success will follow.

    He probably means his own success. When he sends the snake oil to many people. I didn't learn anything from this book. The only good thing is that it was very short. So I didn't waste too much time on this.

    My tip, read books from actual leaders or people who've actually done the research. Eg Jim Collins, Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, Peter Thiel, Eric Schmidt, Jocko Willink. Real insights from real leaders. Nuanced and humble. No simple 5 step plan to success. But the truth.

    "A must hear/read book in order to survive and thrive in the 21st century"

    This book has given me the big kick I need to become a key person of influence.

    It's given me a renewed sense of purpose.

    I've mind mapped sooo many ideas and actions as well as stories from my past that this book has made me think of that makes what I do unique.

    Brilliant.

    "quite captivating"

    If you need a good talking to with a strong theme and a decidedly positive 'you can do It' message, then this is for you. a good, well thought out narrative with clear vocabulary, step by step guidance with examples and all delivered with a clarity of conviction.

    "Full of banalities. Waste of time"

    This book had really good reviews so I downloaded it.
    First of all, the narration was not good.
    Secondly the content was full of banalities and really general knowledge. He spends a whole chapter self-congratulating himself by saying how this book will make you rich and the method is amazing. But there is no content - nothing!
    Most of the advice he gives is really common sense things that everyone knows now. He recommends using social media and publishing content... Well, this is obvious. 16years old people know this without having to buy a book! So why bother with this book?
    What a waste of time!!!!

    "This is the way"

    This is where a lot of other business books and podcasts have got their core idea from. This is a great book.

Times have changes and this book is like an update on how to do business and how to think about ourself as key person of influence. I highly recommend !

    "Excellent book with actionable advice"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes - short, practical, actionable


    Have you listened to any of Michael Maloney’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Oversubscribed is also an excellent book, this one forms the basis for it in my opinion.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me excited as it's all logical and perfectly achievable

    "BEST BOOK I'VE LISTENED TO SO FAR!!!"

    I don't know what I loved more about this book, the amazing advice it give about becoming a key person of influence or the fact that almost every tip and suggestion I have already tried at some point in the last couple of years. my focus has been re-calibrated, I'm very excited about what I'm going to achieve in the next couple of years.
