's review

did not like it

When I reviewed this in 2011, I was young and naive, still believing the capitalist myth that becoming ridiculously wealthy was just a case of "trying your best". I'm quite embarrassed by this now, but here's my original review:

I thought this book was good. Although he's probably sensationalising quite a lot of it, there's no doubt the book left me feeling inspired - feeling like anything was possible, whatever your background. Definitely a motivational book: great if you're slightly doubting your ability to be an entrepreneur. The message of the book is certainly reach for the stars, no matter how cloudy the sky - the stars are much closer than you think.

Aureliano ok so why the one star

Hazel As I said in my review, I now understand that the whole book is based on the capitalist myth that hard work = ridiculous wealth, so in my opinion, it is a one-star book. Not sure why it bothers you so much how one person rates a book. 🙃
