It reveals so much about the world

I now understand why my boss is always mad haha. Don't be fooled, you will need to become a better employee before you can be a boss. Chunk the book in parts and your growth will be noticable to all!

I learned a ton

I loved the book so much. It gave me a ton of ideas for things to implement. I listened on 2x the speed and am cued up for another go at it in about a month. I recommend to anyone with a business or thinking of starting one.

Should be marketed in the US only.

Much of the book is only relevant to the US. If you live elsewhere don't waste your money on this book.

terrible delivery

the narrator practically barks it at you. really not easy to listen to and I'm not enjoying it at all.
