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.

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!!!!

Too informative

I was almost discouraged by the top 2 comments which had negative reviews. Still went ahead to listen to the book and oh my!! I don't regret it at all. so much great content. Will have to listen to it again to soak it all in.

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.

Simple, clear, inspiring

What made the experience of listening to Key Person of Influence the most enjoyable?

The narrator's voice is beautiful and makes this book a pleasure to listen to. Daniel's ideas are simple, but profoundly effective, as anyone who follows his method can testify. They are illustrated with engaging stories, explained with clarity, which makes it an enjoyable "read" and helps you to imagine yourself actually doing what he suggests, which is hugely motivating. Thank you Daniel for writing such a valuable book.

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

What a gorgeous voice - beautifully read, with gravitas and sincerity. Thank you Michael.

Beautiful in its simplicity

What a refreshing reminder of how business is changing and the simple (in terms of what is required) steps it takes to be known in your industry.

Having listened once now it is time to repeat the listening and to complete the exercises.

This book has given me a nice new boost of energy to make a positive difference to the way I live and how I am rewarded along the journey.

Thanks Daniel
