I just couldn’t get past the first chapter - can’t put my finger on what it was. Was really looking forward to it to :(

Definitely worth a read

Better than a few personal finance books I’ve read lately. I liked a few of his concepts that I think I will actually utilize. He was very easy to listen to as well.

I really wanted to like it

Everything you need to know is in the first chapter and even then it could be summed up in a paragraph. Not sure what all the hype was about.

A lot of the book was lost on me as I’m not in the US. I ended up skipping quite a few chapters because of that.

I like reading about personal finances - while this isn’t an instructional book its definitely fascinating to listen to their journey and what bits and pieces I can apply in my own life.

Nothing new

There was nothing to really dislike about this book - but I honestly didn’t learn anything new by reading it.

Only buy if you're in the USA

Majority of the "ways" discussed refer to websites where you need to be based in the USA. Hearing the narrator gulping and turning the page was also annoying.

Definitely worth it !

I hadnt watched too many episodes of the office or the mindy project but i thought i'd give it a go - i'm glad i did! It was so easy to listen to and Mindy is funny and relate-able. For anyone who wasnt popular at school and enjoyed studying and hanging out with family and didnt always fit into the mainstream - you will enjoy this book. Even if you did, Mindy is so engaging that you will find her stories hilarious.

Very disappointed!

I love to read up about personal finance. This book was continuously rated in the top 5 recommended books on the subject so i was excited to finally read/listen to it. To say I was disappointed is an understatement. The book is just about the power of positive thinking and the law of attraction - that's it. There are better books out there.

As a child of the 80s I was really looking forward to listening to this book - I just found it really dark and did not enjoy it. No doubt that Rob has lived an interesting life and it was fascinating to see how many celebrity connections he had early on without even trying. But i found this a real struggle to get through with such a heavy subject matter.
