Publisher's Summary

You live in your dream house, but there's no mortgage. No alarm clock, no boss, no bills. No claims on the day's time other than what you choose. It is making more money before breakfast than you made for an entire week at your last job. It is a crazy expensive car parked in your garage, a victorious symbol that your dreams no longer sleep in fantasies, but are awake with reality.

Make no mistake, this life exists. I know, because it has been mine for nearly 20 years. And in a few short years, it can be yours as well. Better, you won't need 5 tedious decades of thankless jobs, buzz killing frugality, and patient investing with our trusted friends on Wall Street.

Unfortunately, you have been scripted to believe that such a life is out of your reach, or only possible for a certain type of person. Someone with a certain college degree, a certain amount of VC funding, or a certain contact list of connected friends from Stanford. I am here to tell you, that none of it is true.

While I have been entrepreneur most of my life, I am no one special. You won't read about me over at Tech Crunch or in some Silicon Valley newsletter. While I have been an internet entrepreneur since the old "you've got mail" AOL days, I have never been funded by venture capitalists, I have never had a payroll with more than 5 people on it, and I have never studied computer science at school.

Despite this, I am able to create profitable businesses that create the type of unscripted life described above. We are talking five- and six-figure monthly profits with valuations in the millions. Although I have had two successful exits, do not

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "Gone Downhill Dont Buy"

    Long winded angry rehash of his first book with a huge chip on his shoulder. Heaps of swearing, berating, negative stories with many confusing anecdotes that dont add value. Not sure who this book was aimed at but it failed to deliver.

    "Outstanding"
    If you could sum up Unscripted in three words, what would they be?

    Eye-opening, educational, in-depth,


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mj De Marco, Because I find he is not afraid to speak the truth and tell you how it is.


    What does Scott Thomas bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    His voice is soothing and I can listen to him all day. I'm not the reading type so I haven't experienced the book any other way.


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

    The part where MJ explains investing with your paycheck pot. He states that it is boring but I enjoy it, I have had the goal of being wealthy from a young age my family where bankers so I love numbers.


    Any additional comments?

    I'd like to thank MJ De Marco for this in-depth book on money and I will continue to advise everyone I meet to read it. It has given me a deep understanding of how I'm going to get out of the rat race and onto the fast lane. At the same time, it has made me aware of the traps and scams out there so I can stay away from them.

    "Simply the best."

    There are a lot of good entrepreneur and mindset books out there, but I often only take certain parts from them (and I'm not talking about gurus like kiyosaku or robbins). This book, has no filler though. It's all indispensable. Every chapter, every word. This book will wake you up and tell you like it is. Doesn't matter if you're already on your way as an entrepreneur or just starting. It really gives you the keys to the kingdom. Now it's just up to you to drive. There's no short cut except to let you know: there's no shortcuts.. Thank you again MJ for another amazing book and stopping me from wasting years and thousands. No turning back once you are fully aware.

    Story
    "Making money, yeah. Cut the rant though."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Absolutely. I love the author's "let's get it done" philosophy, but later on in the book it just feels like a rant. He even starts backlashing about fat-shaming.
    Honestly, I just want to learn about entrepreneurship. I don't need a social commentary (complete with excessive cussing).


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Despite my previous comments about the book turning into a social commentary, it's well worth the purchase.
    I wouldn't call this a story, but the information offered in three quarters of this title makes it worth while.
    Like I said, however, it later turns into a social commentary (yawn).


    Have you listened to any of Scott Thomas’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but this voice actor is amazing. He kept me up late at night with his enthusasm -- despite the title being extremely long.


    Who do you think would benefit most from listening to Unscripted?

    Anyone looking to get ahead in life, or planning on opening (or wanting to improve on) their business.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, the book is worth the purchase. It is well written, and narrated fantastically.

    I just want to turn it off when I start to hear the rant about people the author doesn't believe are putting enough into life. Frankly, he sounds like a bit of a bully near the end; but that won't stop me from taking good info and using it to my advantage.

    "A wake up call for those wanting more out of life"

    MJ has done it again.
    Unscripted is a prequel to The Millionaire Fastlane, in my opinion, although both books stand alone.
    The book covers all the underlying things required to get the right mindset and create valuable businesses that serve and add value to the world, while allowing you to become wealthy and be untethered from a J.O.B.
    Read/listen to it multiple times to allow the message to sink in.

    "Unscripted was Phenomenal!!!"

    This book by MJ DeMarco was the best book I've read by far, out of the many Entrepreneurial Books that are out there this book gets it right! It gives you the No-nonsense truth about the hard road ahead of starting entrepreneurs. But it also shows you the way, the road less traveled, the Unscripted Path!!!

    I have a friend who loves this book and has read it three times. It took me a few weeks to get through it once on Audible. There's some good stuff in there, but I bet the book could be edited to half it's size without losing anything.

    "I believe in Reality and this man knows Reality!"
    What did you love best about Unscripted?

    No non sense, No BS, in your face Unscripted Reality! I do believe MJ DeMarco should do stand up comedy. I say this in a good way, because what MJ converses is what our current society is scripting for us all. I am in a scripted life, but there is a way out. If you are willing to fight for it! Thanks: MJ


    What other book might you compare Unscripted to and why?

    Millionaire Fast Lane : Same author. More of the same great knowledge for a producers lifestyle.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Thomas’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I personally liked MJ DeMarco narration from the original book. I will say Scott Thomas's vocals did not dissuade the listening. He did a great job of conveying the message or information in a regal and hilarious manner.


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

    There is to many to note. I will be re-listening to write them all down. Impact millions, Action Taker vs Faker, producer vs consumer, plus many more.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't believe in being a zealot about anyone idea or thing. That said, MJ comes across in a realistic truthful way. It is packed full of knowledge, history and humor. I would say he is doing better than me and allot of other people out there. This in it's self makes it worth a listen.

    "Must Listen!!!"

    I really enjoyed The Millionaire Fastlane, and this book is a great follow up to that masterpiece. There is a fair bit of strong language, but if you can look past that it is well worth the listen. Candid, honest to a fault, and just telling it like it is. I loved the dry sarcastic overtones, they serve to emphasize how ridiculous modern economic slavery really is. Narration was well done, very professional and easy to listen to, so I'm pleased with the overall experience.

    Essential for every entrepreneur. Shave years off your struggle for financial freedom from the insightful and practical biz nuggest. This is my 2nd favorite book of all time after 'how to win friend's and influence people'. Gave copies to my friends. I can relate the info with my biz experiences. Previously also read millionaire fast lane but this book is better with more info and recent case studies.
