An unnamed defendant stands accused of murder. Just before the closing speeches, the young man sacks his lawyer and decides to give his own defence speech. He tells us that his barrister told him to leave some things out. Sometimes the truth can be too difficult to explain or believe. But he thinks that if he's going to go down for life, he might as well go down telling the truth.

What would have made You Don't Know Me better?

creating a new category for literacy that comes from uneducated people

What was most disappointing about Imran Mahmood’s story?

the verdict is simple - this guy is about to get life sentence so he plays on time by making up stories to fool the judge. His imagination might be impressive but his brain would be a separate case study for drug research.

Any additional comments?

this audiobook is full of crp and made me sick. It was not easy to listen to the end and would not leave a single star, except for the lawyer's speech at the end.
My message for those who enjoyed this listening is to leave your comfort zone, go on streets and start practising anti-social behaviours, perhaps you might bring a better story.

When we make decisions we like to think we weigh the options carefully, look at all the possibilities, and make the best choice based on a rational examination of the facts. But in truth, much of our decision making happens on a subconscious level based on feelings we might not even be aware of. Understanding and managing those subconscious feelings is the key to the art of persuasion. By observing and predicting human behavior, we can learn to react and direct behavior in others.

I bought this book because of high reviews and I am quite dissappointed. It might be good for beginners in personal-developement reading, but for me its just blend of ideas from Brian Tracy, Tony Robins etc
the author mentions the 80/20 rule and I must agree that less than 20% can be found useful in this book.
He suggests to become mobile and otsource 80% of your low value tasks - good look in finding monkeys who do not know this principle

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Very interesting and motivating story that has changed my perception of life. This is definitely one of the best books about self-esteem and putting life on the right track. Matthew is a great mentor and his book is a 'must read' if you want to achieve more in your life.
