    If you could sum up UnCommon Sense in three words, what would they be?

    Inspirational,thought-provoking and honest


    What did you like best about this story?

    This is a great story of someone who has been there and done it.He's made the mistakes and gives the reader insight to learn from them.Its educational yet very thought provoking and I wonder now why I have never understood this before.Its a must read for everyone who is in business or have thoughts of starting a business.


    What does Peter Baker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Well read, its like you are sat in the room with him.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Not sure it'd be a film ,more of a documentry

    Story
    "Great to encourage you to think differently!"
    If you could sum up UnCommon Sense in three words, what would they be?

    If you are one who expects to is comfortable with 'accepted' patterns of thought, expect to be challenged when you read this book. If you have read other books by the same author, you may feel you have heard quite a lot of it before; but are happy to 'be reminded'.
    As another reviewer indicated, I personally find the style of the narrator detracts enormously from the content of the book; but if you can ignore that, you will benefit from the content

    Story
    "OK and interesting but rather general"

    This was a decent read but marred by a narrator whose staccato timbre made it hard for me to get into any sort of flow listening.

    Overall I felt the book covered a lot of ground but I wanted more depth in most areas. It appears to be aimed at the beginner business mindset.

    As with all these books, there is always something useful and helpful to take away and this is a good one to let wash over you as you potter around rather than being a 'how-to' guide for anything. I'll go through it again and am sure I'll find more nuggets.

    I'd recommend you give this a go.

    Story
    "Always learning something useful"

    Being a person of usual acquaintance with everyday life, including work, relationships and dreams I found this book a reinforcement that everyone who is willing to try and do will succeed in business (and indeed anything you put your mind to). It's not just insightful business strategy - which does relate to investing in property and investing in yourself in whatever business or industry you work within - it's a way of thinking and approaching decision making. With a twist of genuine humour (I had at least three lol moments) this book will encourage and inspire you to look at how you do things and make changes that are either proven to work or proven to give you results you did not expect. It's a recommended listen.

    Many thanks Mark
    Joe

    Story
    "A cracker!!"

    Another cracking book from Mark Homer. This was a great follow on from his low cost high life book. This book is 1/2 mindset and 1/2 investment advice and does a great job in telling you when to react to certain situations and when to ignore the mass media dramatic headlines that scare the masses away. A great read, and one to add to the list of entertaining investment books (of which there are very few that can have both good substance and an entertaining delivery)

    Loved it.

    Story
    "Wonderful narrative of the contrarian investor"
    Would you listen to UnCommon Sense again? Why?

    Greatly resonated with me on so many levels. Mark has a way of engaging with the reader/listener and conveying his experiences in a very relevant and articulate manner, and not devoid of humour!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I enjoyed the entire book - very absorbing


    What about Peter Baker’s performance did you like?

    The narrator is highly engaging and positioned the tone very well, complementing Mark's character very well.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! - but managed to listen to it in 2 long trail runs at 1.5x speed!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Awesome, thoroughly recomended.
