Lost me when he said climate change is a conspiracy

Gimmicky and contains a lot of bull. Lost me early on when he implied climate change is a way to control us through fear.

Refreshingly direct and gets to the point!

The narration might sound a little condescending at times but I really loved this book and although I don't need a kick up the backside for some this will. it also plenty of value nuggets inside and certainly felt I got some real value here.

Who is holding me back? Me!

This book is a must-have for anyone looking to take their faith into their own hands. It provides the framework for what it will take to make the necessary changes, both physically and mentally, in order to start creating the life you want. It reminded me as well of who is holding me back, myself, and made me believe I too am worthy and capable of running my own life, doing the work I enjoy. Thanks for the wisdom.

helpful to get you moving

if you need inspiration to help you to quit your job and start up your own business this book is really helpful. I'm looking to build a 'brick and mortar' business and whilst this book is t aimed to that kind of business it was still really helpful and really got me thinking about alternative revenue streams.

Finally, a book that anyone can use!

One of the few books I've read that actually gives you clear and specific information and ideas about creating an income online. Lots of useful strategies and suggestions to get you going. A great read.

lots of nothing

I enjoyed the first few chapters but as it went on it didn't really do anything. it was more like a biography on what the author likes and dislikes, this i felt could have bee. done so much quicker. The main gripe for me was the constant selling throughout. The narrator was good but seem to struggle with the structure of the sentences.

Misleading title.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jonathan Green again?

no.

Any additional comments?

The title is misleading. The book is vaguely describing his process of making money by writing books about popular subjects with little prior understanding and he is proud of it.
This book should have been called. How I quit my 9 to 5 job by spewing out books and selling them to gullible people like you.

The book starts fine, he makes some "ok" remarks about the society and the education system. He encourages the reader/listener to make lists and and targets but these lists are not utilized.He either forgot about it or he didn't really had a plan at the start.

There is a part in the middle which he talks about how great his networking skills are , why you should pay him or buy his products and so on. It is really hard to listen. It is like listening to an hour of advertising.It goes on forever.

He also talks about buttering up rich people to get sweet deals , but it is not explained which kinds of deals he is referring to.. His advice on networking is talk to people, offer value, buy drinks for people and talk to their wives.... there are no gems here , these are the things what any sane people would do..except talking to the wives part.

Later he starts by saying that everyone has a skill and he will come back to that. His advice later on is to write a book about it ,sell your services online or shoot a video. If you are not a simpleton you already know this stuff, everyone has heard about the YouTube millionaires , or seen an add or two which takes to online training courses.There is noting new here.

Towards the end he talks about cutting costs, how he ghost writes to earn extra cache. It seemed funny because an hour ago he was telling how he was making 6 figures or he gets sweet deals because he has tons of rich friends.
He talks about how he achieved greatness, how happy he is , how wonderful his life is..ect.. He boasts about his life so much , it makes it seem like he has a terrible sad life, i hope it is not the case.

I believe the software which he uses to divide the chapters of the book worked against him. There is no real composition or a natural flow between chapters. The way which he mentioned how websites changed by talking about the early operating systems blew my mind. I don't think he really researched any of the material before writing this book.Some stuff can not be leaned by reading a couple of articles or by taking courses.

This explains why there is no system, no real advice about anything other than writing books.

Last but not least, at the end he tells you that he will send you a coupon if you mail him a screen shot of your 5 star review. I think it is telling some thing about the author, I leave it up to you to decide .

Smart..... self promoting

I'm sure the author is a good guy and he clearly is successful. He offers a couple useful suggestions but book seems to talk alot about himself, his kids swimming lessons, that he lives on a tropical island, etc. the rest of the book is about him promoting himself his own website, and his services.

No actionable steps

This is more of a motivational book than any sort of guide or how-to book, which it advertises itself as. This made it pretty disappointing. It makes claims that sound like it's the next 4 hour workweek with a bunch of ideas that you can take action on. This book, however, is much different. "I left my job and now I write amazon books and blog posts from home. You can too!" summarizes the whole book. It feels like one long pitch for you to read his blog. Nothing of value.

Work-life for a whole new world

Jonathan Green speaks cutting edge about the state of the work field in 2017. To count on a JOB and corporate America to take care of us is no longer a "secure" way to plan your life. I read this in perfect timing for me, I was already moving to creating my own job. What he added to that was to diversify as well. This was a fabulous bonus because I was giving myself a lot of pressure to succeed at the current project. Now I can relax and do it well, but continue to think of the next thing rather than bet everything on one idea.
Thank you Jonathan! I will be combing through your site as well, as you've invited us to.

Waste of time. Little beneficial information.

It’s like you’re a psychiatrist and he’s a narcissistic person whose life story you listen to and you have to pay him to listen to him. No wonder he writes books quickly because he simply puts his mind which he believes is golden and of great value. The book is of no value to readers but is useful to the writer.

He cares!

There is no doubt in my mind that the author is 101% genuine in his earnest desire to help every reader to serve no master. Sincere in every way! If you genuinely want to make a living on line, there HAS to be at least one method in this book that will fuel your success if you are willing to work for it.

Excellent read for 1st business book or your 101st

Jonathan Green has a very compelling argument for building your own online business. He is very relatable - as I read Serve No Master, his writing echoed and reinforced many things I have thought for a long time such as a college degree by itself doesn't guarantee success. Yet, we grow up being programmed that graduating college will guarantee a career and happiness. If you thought a college degree meant success in life and are not happy with the real results - READ THIS BOOK! If you already knew that drive and passion are better predictors of success than a college degree - READ THIS BOOK! If you are looking for a business that you can start with minimal costs - READ THIS BOOK! If you know there are ways to make money online in your spare time; but, you don't know what they are - READ THIS BOOK! You will be pleased if you buy and read this book. As you read it, it will feel as though Jonathan is an old friend who is sitting in the room next to you, having a conversation with you about how you can become more successful! Although I am sure there is something in Serve No Master that I didn't particularly care for (I'm fairly critical), I cannot recall anything, despite having finished the book only a couple of days ago. The one thing that does come to mind is that the author isn't the narrator. The narrator is great! But, if I had to choose, I would have liked to have heard it read by Jonathan Green. Enjoy! I did! So, Will you Serve No Master?

Refreshing

I read a lot of business books, self-help, and professional journals - most pass in the night with no real new value or insight. Less than 10% get an honorable mention but this one will. Thanks for delivering a great read packed with value and even a few laughs. I'm looking forward to finding more great reads by Jonathan.

Absolutely THE most relevant worthwhile topic

This book affirmed my beliefs about public education (drone factory). I gained some actionable knowledge- about business types, reducing travel expense,...- but I feel it details more of why one would want to transcend the 9-5 and and overviews a couple alternatives. A bit of fluff around the edges but a shift in mindset is what I gained from the core.
