At a time when Warren Buffet has again emerged as the defining sage and darling of Wall Street, this fascinating book explodes the myths that surround the man from Omaha and brings new insights into his remarkable successes ¿ as a manager, an allocator of capital, and a role model for financial managers, investors, and business executives around the world. Many best-selling books have tried to unlock Buffett's secrets by analysing his genius as a stock picker. But they missed the point.

When it comes to how to succeed as an entrepreneur, we are besotted with advice. According to best-selling author Alan Weiss, success is a combination of opportunism, very disciplined work, luck, timing, and ignoring most advice. In other words, it means striking out on your own original path to success. In Million Dollar Maverick, he explains that entrepreneurs don't take advice; they create value and then monetize it. They do what they love and are great at and find a way to sell it to people.

Everyone wants to be an influencer. We all want to learn how to help ourselves and others change behavior. And yet, in spite of the fact that we routinely attempt to do everything from lose weight to improve quality at work, few of us have more than one or two ideas about how to exert influence. For the first time, Influencer brings together the breakthrough strategies of contemporary influence masters.

What made the experience of listening to Art of Seduction the most enjoyable?

The narrator is INCREDIBLE and delivers the content perfectly.

What other book might you compare Art of Seduction to, and why?

All Robert Greene books are in a style that is WOKE AF

What about Joseph Powers’s performance did you like?

His voice and pronounciation of foreign names and terms. Amazing voice. My fave so far.

Napoleon Hill, born into poverty in 1883, began writing as a reporter for small town newspapers while just a teenager. When industrialist Andrew Carnegie commissioned him in 1908 to interview over 500 successful men and women to help prove his theory that success could be distilled down to a clear-cut formula, Hill met with hundreds of the richest and most famous people of the time.

This must be listened to often, coz it makes one happy and accountable. The readers voice is similar to Mr Hill's so it was easy to suspend disbelief and pretend it was the author himself.

The first of many listens for me.

Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new foreword and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant and answer some of the most common questions he has received over the past 15 years.

According to the Small Business Administration, 90% of service businesses will fail within the first five years. They fail not because they don't offer great services and products, but because the owners are extremely uncomfortable with traditional marketing and sales. The result is a frustrated, isolated, and overwhelmed business owner who does not know there is an entirely different, highly successful approach to marketing and sales available—and it's laid out in Book Yourself Solid.

What a gift for absolute noobs like me entering the business world.

As I began my journey with BYS and gaining personal and professional support I had to laugh to myself...

Pretty much all the things that Michael said NOT to do, are things that nearly everyone is doing right now and wondering why they are just getting by.

This book has opened my mind to endless possibility.

I LOVE YOU TOO MICHAEL! (And not in a weird way)
