's review

it was ok
bookshelves: non-dutch, non-fiction

Don't read this book. It is full of obvious stuff that I basically agree with but the writing style and argumentation are beyond annoying.

The pattern is as follows: "Lot's of people say you can't do X. But look at us! We did X, so it is possible". For me that reads as: "Lot's of people say you shouldn't base your life's path on winning the lottery. But look at me! I won the lottery, so it is possible".

Spend your 10 euros on drugs or hookers or alcohol and have some fun in life.

Paul Link Kijk, dat zijn nou commentaren waar we wat aan hebben! Het is misschien nog wel belangrijker om te weten wat we níet moet lezen. Ga zo door! Lees nog veel meer kloteboeken! (maar vertel ons er wel van)

Murali Devarakonda Hookers for 10 euros?

Bahaà Addin Balashoni Totally don't agree with the lottery point of view. The man is talking business.
He is targeting a specific segment of business: basically small business in the internet, especially the tech-based.
And I'm telling you, my company on of those, a d we're pretty much following the same strategies, and we're doing pretty well so far.
