Publisher's Summary

Has the "settle-for-less" financial plan become your plan for wealth? That plan sounds a little something like this:

"Graduate from college, get a good job, save 10% of your paycheck, buy a used car, cancel the movie channels, quit drinking expensive Starbucks mocha lattes, save and penny-pinch your life away, trust your life-savings to the stock market, and one day, when you are oh, say, 65 years old, you can retire rich."

Since you were old enough to hold a job, you've been hoodwinked to believe that wealth can be created by blindly trusting in the uncontrollable and unpredictable markets: the housing market, the stock market, and the job market. I call this soul-sucking, dream-stealing dogma "The Slowlane" - an impotent financial gamble that dubiously promises wealth in a wheelchair.

Accept the Slowlane as your financial roadmap and your financial future will blow carelessly asunder on a sailboat of hope: hope you can get a job and keep it, hope the stock market doesn't tank, hope the economy rebounds, hope, hope, and hope. Do you really want hope to be the centerpiece of your family's financial plan?

Drive the Slowlane road and you will find your life deteriorate into a miserable exhibition about what you cannot do, versus what you can. For those who don't want a lifetime subscription to "settle-for-less", there is an alternative; an expressway to extraordinary wealth capable of burning a trail to financial independence faster than any road out there. And shockingly, this road has nothing to do with jobs, 401(k), mutual funds, or a lifestyle of mediocrity.

Demand more. Change lanes and find your explosive wealth accelerator. Hit the Fastlane, crack the code to wealth, and find out how to live rich for a lifetime.

    "Don't waste a credit here."

    One of the very few books I've found unlistenable on Audible. Positive reviews for this title are baffling to the point of being suspicious. I couldn't even make it to the halfway mark.

    What it is: a testosterone-laden adolescent worldview with very little actionable advice.

    If someone like this dude can become a millionaire in record time, you can too. You're welcome!

    "Should be part of Uni syllabus"

    MJ DeMarco has done an excellent jobs in defining what needs to be done to be a success. There is no secret formula. The advice provided in the book is pretty darn logical, practical and very useful. He calls spade a spade. Loved it. Definitely worth a read

    "The best book I have ever read. Period."

    Narrated by the man himself, TMF is an excellent and standout book. I write a review for hotels/flights/books/movies whatever maybe once every 5 years. This time The Millionaire Fastlane gets my tick ;) Well done to MJ Demarco (ps he is not a genius.. we are just stupid for not seeing this ourselves! )

    "Excellent!"

    I almost did not purchase this book because of the title, but I'm so glad I did! This could very easily be the best book I've read in years. I currently earn an above average income (low 6 figures). Even though I can afford a good living, I feel like saving through my 401k is not getting me anywhere fast. As a former financial advisor, I believe the author's ideas are sound and he confirms why I felt like a fraud every time I pitched stocks and mutual funds. While it has been done, it is extremely difficult to make big gains in the stock market. It's mainly a really slow game that takes more than a couple decades to work. This book presents a mental state rather than a step by step plan. The author gives many examples of fast track success stories and most importantly, he doesn't sell any of the content as "get rich easy". Oh, and there's no up selling attempts within this book!

    "great message watered down by constant repetition"

    The first half of the book is painfully lacking and repititious.The second half is great and extremely substantial. The narrator(who is also the writer) while has great energy sounds more like a salesman, which did not appeal to me. if you can get past the bland first half you will be treated a some wonderful lessons later on.

    "Best I have read in a long time"
    What made the experience of listening to The Millionaire Fastlane: Crack the Code to Wealth and Live Rich for a Lifetime the most enjoyable?

    I own a business that's pretty successful but not fast lane yet like I want because I need to work on scale but MJ is dead on with his 5 commandments of fast lane business and his 3 types of people. Also he isn't a guru trying to lure you into buying more his stuff. He is truth.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    MJ because he is real and I know from experiences that what he is saying is true.


    What does MJ DeMarco bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I can identify with him.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The Truth the Gurus Don't Want You to Know


    Any additional comments?

    I hope to meet MJ some day. He has inspired me to jump back into my business and rev the engine for the fast lane.

    "Good insights, over the top condescension"

    MJ undoubtedly has pretty good thoughts and guidance when it comes to money and has fresh insights and stories from his life. The content of the book itself was helpful and actionable.

    The listening experience was spoilt for me by his constant condescension, made up of thinly veiled insults and rhetoric. I know this is his persona for the book and how he stands out, but I didn't care for that too much.

    I felt that the chapter break music was very jarring as well.

    "Tell it like it is"
    If you could sum up The Millionaire Fastlane: Crack the Code to Wealth and Live Rich for a Lifetime in three words, what would they be?

    Leverage Value Customer-obsessed


    What other book might you compare The Millionaire Fastlane: Crack the Code to Wealth and Live Rich for a Lifetime to and why?

    I would compare this to Rich Dad Poor Dad, but without the gloom and doom that Kiyosaki spouts.


    What does MJ DeMarco bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Brutal honesty, humor and cutting through the fat.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Great advice book on the criteria to look for a business that will scale and reach the most audience. MJ smashes down the whole "do what you love, follow your passion" mantra out there. It's more about providing value to others with passion and hard work.

    "Cracking the code = Not going to find it here."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Practical advice, next steps, solid tools for listener to use.


    Has The Millionaire Fastlane: Crack the Code to Wealth and Live Rich for a Lifetime turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. I'll not buy another book from this author though.


    What three words best describe MJ DeMarco’s performance?

    Self-consumed, pompous, immature


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Very little. Frankly can't think of anything he has shared that was helpful except for my thinking I should learn how to code and build my own websites.


    Any additional comments?

    DeMarco breaks down his basic theory on sucess breaking success into two groups, slow lane success and fast lane success. I'm in chapter 15 and so frustrated listening to the same damning example after example after example of slow lane success techniques. Each example of how other people are stupid comes dripping with an all knowing attitude while avoiding any tangible steps for you to make going forward. Granted I'm only in Chapter 15 so haven't listened to the bitter end but all I've suffered through could have been easily summarized in one chapter.Have you ever been trapped with someone who can't stop talking about themselves and how smart they are and sharing their opinions on how the world works? DeMarco may know how to make money for himself but his book is desperately short on valuable insight as to how you might be able to do it. I can sum up what I've heard so far in a couple sentences. All I keep hearing is how awesome he is, what a great life he has and how if I'm smart I'll want to be like him.Saving money, investing in mutual funds or stocks or anything like that is stupid "slow lane" thinking. You need to come up with an idea to make money like I did with my internet company and make money in the fast lane! - Now you'll be waiting to hear details or formulas helping you do the same but they won't be there. You'll just keep hearing those same two lines over and over. I'm 9 hours and 12 minutes into a 12 hour book and so far that's all I've gotten out of it. So much of it is telling you that life is short. I feel like I've wasted 9 hours of it listening to this book. I'm giving up.

    "Nothing extremely useful."

    Although there are some semi helpful motivational tidbits scattered through out this book, the book itself is not full of a lot of useful information. Each chapter is like an motivational introduction to the same book on finding wealth. Lots of recycled content over and over. Summary: make positive changes, create a business, get rich.

    "A Top 5 business book of all time."

    This book changed my mental/financial life 3+ plus years ago, and has acted as my filter by which all other business books, advice givers, podcast, etc are judged.

    MJ's transparency comes thorough even more strongly in audio, and proves he wrote this book for one primary reason, and one only, to help people succeed and not get distracted by business and success myths along the way.

    "Prepare to be upset"
    Would you listen to The Millionaire Fastlane: Crack the Code to Wealth and Live Rich for a Lifetime again? Why?

    If you have listened to other financial gurus and followed their advice, prepare to be angry at them and yourself. DeMarco does not present anything remarkably new; but, he does arrange his knowledge in a new way that changes what you know to be more meaningful. I wanted to stop listening a few times because I felt foolish for not realizing some of what DeMarco points out. My mind was like a movie flashback with a fast montage of clues littered throughout the movie are replayed in quick succession.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.

    Appreciate the book for substance over style.

    "Refreshingly Honest Book - Forget the Fluff"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Millionaire Fastlane: Crack the Code to Wealth and Live Rich for a Lifetime to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the book but downloaded the audio. I do intend to read the book because the audio is so good.


    What other book might you compare The Millionaire Fastlane: Crack the Code to Wealth and Live Rich for a Lifetime to, and why?

    I would compare it to several books by Richard Branson, it comes across as a one to one conversation rather than a guru sprouting things they have never done.


    What about MJ DeMarco’s performance did you like?

    Read naturally and with an assurance only the author could provide. There were times you felt like being in the room as he is speaking. He is funny too.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were many moments that could be called moments of clarity. It was funny when he was talking about Gurus. When talking about the best tool to use for creating millionaires I played it back several times to make sure my understanding was clear.


    Any additional comments?

    I intend to replay this book again and again. Lots of lessons, clearly written and read, easy to understand and again funny.

    After reading this book I re-evaluated my fastlane, although already on the fastlane it became clear that my vehicle wasn't the right one, as it would get me to where I want to be BUT not where I know I can now get, I was selling myself short and accepting my ceiling.

    What did you like best about The Millionaire Fastlane: Crack the Code to Wealth and Live Rich for a Lifetime? What did you like least?

    Some good insight and tips. It's aimed too much at creating ridiculous wealth in short order. Most people don't have the mechanism to do this or have too much to lose. I prefer a slower and steady approach to wealth.

    This is the furthest thing from inspirational, he spouts negativity and seems to have an agenda about anybody over 40. Save your money and more importantly your time and pass on purchasing this book.
