Publisher's Summary

You live in your dream house, but there's no mortgage. No alarm clock, no boss, no bills. No claims on the day's time other than what you choose. It is making more money before breakfast than you made for an entire week at your last job. It is a crazy expensive car parked in your garage, a victorious symbol that your dreams no longer sleep in fantasies, but are awake with reality.

Make no mistake, this life exists. I know, because it has been mine for nearly 20 years. And in a few short years, it can be yours as well. Better, you won't need 5 tedious decades of thankless jobs, buzz killing frugality, and patient investing with our trusted friends on Wall Street.

Unfortunately, you have been scripted to believe that such a life is out of your reach, or only possible for a certain type of person. Someone with a certain college degree, a certain amount of VC funding, or a certain contact list of connected friends from Stanford. I am here to tell you, that none of it is true.

While I have been entrepreneur most of my life, I am no one special. You won't read about me over at Tech Crunch or in some Silicon Valley newsletter. While I have been an internet entrepreneur since the old "you've got mail" AOL days, I have never been funded by venture capitalists, I have never had a payroll with more than 5 people on it, and I have never studied computer science at school.

Despite this, I am able to create profitable businesses that create the type of unscripted life described above. We are talking five- and six-figure monthly profits with valuations in the millions. Although I have had two successful exits, do not

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "Life changing if you let it."

    Mj is a revelation and a revelatory voice of such sense that it can truly unsettle you. If like me you are feeling like the treadmill you have been diligently pounding is actually going nowhere then this reveals an alternative reality. It shows a map of this new land that is tough to navigate and follow but the destination is so enticing that it has to be worth turning off the treadmill and turn the sweat and effort to this new road.

    "Change nothing, and nothing will change"

    I loved it (bought the audiobook version). It came at a point in my life where I already had a "FU" moment and this was just reconfirming that indeed now is the time to act. In parts it sounded like myself ranting and it felt, well, familiar. Its not for delicate flowers, and if you don't like being faced with harsh truths I would imagine it can be uncomfortable read for some. But I can tell you now...if you want more in life and you feel like every day is just a step closer to the inevitable end then read it, its the best thing you will ever do. That sounds dramatic, but there is a difference between existing and living your life and if you need a kick up the backside then this is it. Also useful if you have children and are questioning about what kind of direction you want to help them take in life. Who wants to be 70 then look back at life and think "wtf was that?"

    "brilliant book. read both the first and this one."

    great book. read this one and his first book. I have listened to the audiobooks and read the books and can say they are brilliant. essential reading to extract yourself from wage slavery. add in rich dad poor dad (ignore the constant adverts), and richest man in Babylon and you will be on your way to understanding the mindset and action required to remove yourself from the rat race.

    expect lightbulb moments. expect your core values to be challenged. expect some parts of the book to upset you and drive you to create your "f*ck you" scenario. expect results.

    as with all books in this genre; these will require you to action the methods and techniques described. if you don't.....then you're a dumbass! good luck

    "I Love this book."
    Would you listen to Unscripted again? Why?

    Yes. Its hours long and Im certain I can read more and get more...


    What other book might you compare Unscripted to, and why?

    It has elements of several books, including work by Cardone and Ferris, but what I liked was MJs absolute direct and focus on his message. His choice of language makes me chuckle a lot and he hits the truth, often, accurately, funnily and painfully well.


    What about Scott Thomas’s performance did you like?

    It feels like the authors voice. Its spot on.


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

    Laugh. Often. Nod a lot in recognition. Loved it.

    "Loved it."

    It's no exaggeration to say that this book, for me, has been as useful as The E-Myth.

    Instead of being like every other entrepreneur book that tells you a load of what you want to hear, this book tells you all the things you really knew and, therefore, shows that it's not just you that finds things difficult.

    I especially loved the "don't do what you love just because you love it segment"

    "Making money, yeah. Cut the rant though."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Absolutely. I love the author's "let's get it done" philosophy, but later on in the book it just feels like a rant. He even starts backlashing about fat-shaming.
    Honestly, I just want to learn about entrepreneurship. I don't need a social commentary (complete with excessive cussing).


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Despite my previous comments about the book turning into a social commentary, it's well worth the purchase.
    I wouldn't call this a story, but the information offered in three quarters of this title makes it worth while.
    Like I said, however, it later turns into a social commentary (yawn).


    Have you listened to any of Scott Thomas’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but this voice actor is amazing. He kept me up late at night with his enthusasm -- despite the title being extremely long.


    Who do you think would benefit most from listening to Unscripted?

    Anyone looking to get ahead in life, or planning on opening (or wanting to improve on) their business.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, the book is worth the purchase. It is well written, and narrated fantastically.

    I just want to turn it off when I start to hear the rant about people the author doesn't believe are putting enough into life. Frankly, he sounds like a bit of a bully near the end; but that won't stop me from taking good info and using it to my advantage.

    "A wake up call for those wanting more out of life"

    MJ has done it again.
    Unscripted is a prequel to The Millionaire Fastlane, in my opinion, although both books stand alone.
    The book covers all the underlying things required to get the right mindset and create valuable businesses that serve and add value to the world, while allowing you to become wealthy and be untethered from a J.O.B.
    Read/listen to it multiple times to allow the message to sink in.

    " If you can get past his right wing rants and share same political/religious views you should be ok buying this"

    Now I know why this book is so long.. The author spends an awful amount of time preaching right wing victim hood.

    If reading/listening about

    Snowflake
    Safe spaces
    Condoleezza rice
    Gulf war
    That gay vile guy from Britney
    Children that recieve participation awards
    Region /God shouldn't be separated from government

    And on...

    I really believe he wrote this book to get his right wing rant out there...actually he did just that.

    I have his first book which was just straight up advice..this book is something Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity would have written.

    You've been warned....

    "God Dammit Buy This Book"

    I've read a lot of personal finance books. A lot. You name them I've read them. I'm also not a dramatic person, or, someone who writes reviews on books. Ever. I've never written a book review.

    This book I have to. MJ Demarco brilliantly smacks you across the face with blunt, unfiltered honesty that only a successful entrepreneur who doesn't give a sh*t what you think of him could.

    If this book offends you (it will), good. If it makes you feel uncomfortable (it will), good.

    I've never read anything so brutally honesty in the personal finance/entrepreneurship arena like this one does. I don't think there's a single PF or "success" guru he doesn't call out in this book. This book is a bull in a china shop and I loved every second of it.

    I don't recommend this book. I demand you buy it.

    "The only thing this guy likes is hating stuff"

    I'm about 2.5-3 hours and I can't take it anymore. I read that everyone needs this slap in the face but this guy just sounds like a whiny, bitter and lonely dude who found out money didn't buy him happiness. Subtle brags while shaming the douchebagery at the same time. Little hypocritical slaps in the face all over the place. Tossing in cuss words everywhere to try and keep our attention. Not a single piece of information that I can take away from this. It sounds like one long ass bitter intro three hours in and he is still saying "this book is about".

    I have a friend who loves this book and has read it three times. It took me a few weeks to get through it once on Audible. There's some good stuff in there, but I bet the book could be edited to half it's size without losing anything.

    Thank you, for both of your books. Some of the information consisted of things I already knew/felt, but sometimes it helps a lot to hear it from someone else, preferrably someone who has succeeded doing those things. You're doing the world a great service MJ, best of luck to you in your endeavours.
