Not worth the time or money

Narrator just goes on and on, making the most basic, obvious and simple things sound like he invented something groundbreaking.

Bought it based on the good reviews, but really disappointed.

At least his messages are easy to understand and explanations are clear, so giving it two stars instead of one

Recycled ideas

In many instances the book sounded like a library review of self development and business books...
The book could have been shorter.

This guy is just bragging

Honestly, This book seems like vanity project for the author. He’s just bragging all the time. I get you’re big deal, but please get over yourself will you.

Interesting

Insightful however more aligned to individuals running large organisations. Chapter one & five stands outs with focus on getting to know yourself and advice on relationship development

Could not tolerate this book

I could not get through chapter two of this book. I did not return it so that I could share this warning with other readers. My wife and I own small business. Our most recent read was The Passion Economy. In contrast, this book is about bloodthirsty cutthrout competition. It is packed with grievance politics and toxic masculinity. I am a 60 year old man and have worked all of my life for others. I am done with that, but I refuse to think that this is who I should be to succeed. If you value life over wealth, this book is not for you.

Mediocre; few actionable take-aways.

Your Next Five Moves seemed like a must-read strategy book. The author tries to connect skilled business people with chess grandmasters. it's a weak thesis and never really connects with the content and information presented. in most chapters, the author is simply trying to recall what he did 10-15 years ago. Given this, it is hard to connect with much of the background info and narrative. It is just not compelling; it is a mediocre text at best; and, by the end of the audiobook I was really like, " So what? Where are the real take-aways to help me grow a sustainable and profitable business?"

Truly art in literature

As a young entrepreneur I’m always skeptical on the information I take in. I don’t want to be misled and want to avoid any mistakes early on my career if possible. Patrick manages to dissolve my concerns early on in the book, as well as drown me in 16 chapters of non stop value. The lessons and strategy skills I pulled away from this book have literally fired me up. I can’t wait to start applying everything to my business practices and forward this book over to my team. If you’re new to entrepreneurship do yourself a favor and just give it a listen.

Meh

If you like his YouTube channel, you’ll enjoy this because it is the same style. Lots or common business and self-help, but little original or useful deep dive info. I love business and entrepreneur books, but this was just meh.

Too much fluff

I got halfway through the book and gave up. I'm a huge fan of the author, but this book has way too much fluff! You're better off checking his content on YT way more actionable and useful.

I AM my WHY!

This is a must listen MASTERPIECE for me. The author, Patrick Bet-David is authentic in telling his story as if he were there having a fireside chat with you. Much respect! By the way, I AM #4 (PURPOSE). Continued success and blessings. GOOD STUFF.

Life Changing

As im sitting here after finishing the book and my outdoor workout All I can say is im INSPIRED.

As a kid I've always played chess with my dad and official tournaments and let me tell you this book makes a lot of sense...

Ive never thought about how you can plan for your next 5-10-15 moves ahead and win the game of life.

This gives me full clarity on what I want next to happen.


Im going for it all!!!
