Tom Seed did it.
From a dirty place surrounded by nothing to the blazing hot sunshine of Los Angeles.

No more pain or poverty.

Just a perfect life. His own business, his own car, his own house, money, lover.

He had everything he ever wanted. At least he thought so.

To see other men in his age, living a different life to his, owning different things, spending time differently

The kind of book that make you think. Do what you want, don't do something just because others doing it.

It is a great read and makes you stop and think about life and what you are looking for in life.

Some make steps, while some take the leap. Massive steps will result to massive success. However, someone must be mindful that this could also lead to total failure.

Indeed, one of the hardest feelings in this world is to see your dreams built by your efforts come to naught. This is one of the takeaways I got from reading the book.

The story also slapped me with ideas on road to success and my cup of tea of living life while appreciating the things that matter more.

This is another haunting story

I read this book quite a few months ago, I think I left it more half way because I was busy.

I found it very well written, Veres' writing is very articulate, confident and easy to follow, good quality. The subject of the book is quite interesting and has kept me very curious (I still want to know the whole story). I related to the theme to a certain extend, wanting to live a life of my choice, however, I'm not into designer brands, big money and parties and that stopped me to continue as well as

Definitely better than the first book, the story was told in a very engaging way.
Both books have a lot of meaning and give advise on how to approach life.

Really enjoyed the book.

Excellent read and great follow up to Before I Won!

Both books are great for people looking to succeed in life. Very inspiring stories! Excellent read and would certainly recommend.
Everything happened so fast. I had such a perfect life. Everything was perfect. I had everything.
Tom had succeeded in life, he had built his own bussiness, had a good house, his own car, had enough money in the bank, a fiancé, no more hungry days or poverty, everything that he ever dream of, but he felt that something was missing in his life?i
In Before I failed we continue with Toms life story and how while trying to live someone elses life he lost his true self.
It was a short and easy to read

Even from the time my childhood, I felt in my heart that I want to be a creative individual.

It began with physical objects-art-pieces.

But very soon I found that this direction is not the right one for me.

I chose to follow my desire coming from the depths of my heart.

To create visible ghosts, with the strength to live in the heart of the people forever.
