I listened to the audiobook, or rather tried to. I got halfway through and just couldn't go any further. I don't doubt that the author is a pro at what he does or that he has good ideas but I don't think reading an audiobook is one of them. That said, I suppose if I really thought his ideas would help make me a millionaire I likely would have continued to suffer through or bought the hardcover. Perhaps, I have listened to too many books of this type to find his to be one to stick with. I am not ...more

First half interesting on about his story... its when he goes on about additional subjects such as property that lets the overall content down.... a lot of the second half is pretty much what you can get online, it needed to be more laid out in those sections... makes me believe he didn't research those areas well and uses his limited experience in that particular area... if you wanted education there's more in-depth resources available; as a story it is inspirational.

in the end it depends on i

Matt brought his entrepreneurial prowess to play in this book. The combination of Matt's personal story, how he turned things around by determination, consistency, and by taking advantage of opportunities he came across made great lessons.

Matt went on to suggest tools anyone could leverage to really escape the rat race. A great book for anyone seeking to develop personally.

I got halfway through this book before it became an ad for multi-level marketing (rebranded as "network marketing"). *sigh* The first half of the book contained some useful information about leadership, motivation, and dream-building but when it turned into an advertisement for MLM, I gave up and moved on.

Not even sure why I read this. Curiosity, I guess. Also, I apparently wanted something that didn't make me think. Even after it was clear that it didn't really have anything to say to me, I kept reading anyway. Such thick paper--I think it just felt good to make such visible progress on something.

So, how to become an unemployed millionaire? First, think positive and believe you can. Then, start making money. Pretty simple, eh? You can make this money through multi-level marketing (now called net

This was okay. It seemed very self-serving and the chapter on MLM almost made me disconnect until the author added that there were other millionaire hopes beyond MLM in the following chapters. I'm happy that he overcame obstacles to become a millionaire and that he shared his insights in this book. However, I think the key message was to learn how to earn passive income - MLM, real estate or via internet marketing could have been given in a much shorter, more succinct podcast.

I may have read or

Great Book. I enjoyed Matt Morris's story more than the latter half of the book. When he gives the strategies to triumph over hardship, that's when this book shines! If your looking to set up an online business, the latter half definitely will give you many tools you can employ to make that a reality. I'll read it again and have a different outlook on it later

Great book by a great man and friend!.

Interesting book on lifestyle design. Not as good as Ferriss' 4hww as the suggestions are more predictable. Still, some good stuff there.
