Great inspiration

Loved that it was practical and gave clear steps. Only negative was that as the authors ‘niche’ is podcasts it was very podcast heavy with examples. It was definitely tailored more towards a service type business than product based, but saying that still a great business companion. Enjoyable listen.

Had to return because of narration.

Good information in the part of the book I listened too. Author blew his own horn quite a bit, but you expect that in this kind of book. I couldn't get past the narrators high pitch voice and speaking style. I tried, but at a certain point I had to stop listening. I returned the audio book.

You've heard it all before.

This is another stereotypical brand building self help book where the author constantly redirects you to their website. This book really suffers in audio form as the author is speaking a million miles per hour. I found myself constantly zoning out towards the end of the book. if you're focus is entirely on podcasting, then this might benefit you, otherwise, you're not missing anything.

Great book

I used Audible while reading this book on the Kindle. As an EOF listener it just made since to have JLD read it to me! JLD's knowledge and expertise is shown in this body of work and the knowledge of the people he interviewed and included did as well. I will be listening/reading a couple of times to make certain I can achieve uncommon success!

An excellent ‘entrepreneurial’ blueprint, written by an excellent guide; JLD. I highly recommend.

I could go on and on about this book, and the author — but I’ll just get straight to it. I’ll take the liberty of telling you the three most important things in these 250 odd pages... 1) the book is very well written - with an enthusiasm that’s contagious, 2) it outlines the exact path, a ‘blueprint’ for you to follow to create your own entrepreneurial success, and 3) the book is overflowing with firsthand, entrepreneurial knowledge - from dozens of the most successful entrepreneurs from around the world. I highly recommend; “The Common Path to Uncommon Success.” The quality of the writing and the passion for the project really shows.

The book above all other business books

I started my business over a year ago and I just wish that I had read this sooner. I already had a lot of systems in place, but this helped me dramatically refine them all. So whether you've been in business for a while, or you're just starting, this is a must-read.

This Book Is Only For Those Serious About Taking Your Life & Business To The Next Level

I was so blown away by the insights JLD shares in this book by interviewing the most successful entrepreneurs in the world over the past decade.

JLD literally gives you a playbook to taking your business and your life to where you want to be.

The only thing is if you are looking for excuses or to blame others for where you are in your life this book will make you take a long hard look in the mirror and put the onus squarely on you. So if you want to remain a victim of your circumstance this book isn’t for you because it removes all the rationalizations and gives you a step by step process to success.

#NoExcuses

Ps JLD journals changed my life if you are looking for a daily planner that will make sure you are working on the right things everyday go buy one.

A must listen!

I've been listening to JLD's podcast for several years and have taken some of his courses. This book is a great compilation of key strategies and practical advice from a variety of successful entrepreneurs on how to make and keep a business (and yourself!) thriving. JLD never fails to disappoint!
After hearing the audio version, I knew I had to purchase the print version too. This will be a keeper on my bookshelf. Thanks JLD! (I have my yellow highlighter ready to go!)

The best book for entrepreneurs

This book is brilliant. I listened to it in one sitting at 2x speed on the release date, to get a full picture of the 'journey' described in the book. I am now planning to take each step that JLD describes in his book and implement them in my own journey. Many of the steps John describes in the book I am pleased to say I already do, but there are some real gems in there that need careful listening to.

I knew this would be good!

Having listened to many episodes of Entrepreneurs On Fire, and seeing John speak in person I knew his book would be good, and I wasn’t disappointed.
The roadmap to uncommon success is easy to follow and I love the sections at the end of the book.
Great job JLD!

Great book on hacks to grow your business

I listened to this book after a recommendation of Pat Flynn and found it inspiring. Great story, great examples and easy to follow here and now steps for growing your business and approaching your freedom.

My biggest takeaway so far is FOCUS = follow one course until success. Up until now I was running a few projects simultaneously to little or no avail. Now, I am focusing on one as of a fortnight ago and I'll see where it will lead me.

I recommend listening at 1,5x - 2x speed.

The LeBron James of Podcasting

You have to get the audio version of this book! As an avid EOFire listener, it was a must for me. John is a beacon of positivity. He will lift you up and even set your soul on fire!

The book is a very practical guide to coming up with your great idea and making it a reality. It’s relatable, it’s straight talking and it’s exactly what an aspiring entrepreneur should read whether they are at the beginning or in the middle of their journey.

Great job JLD!

This guy knows it. So many value bombs. Every single chapter.
I preordered this and had big expectations. These have been met.

Thoroughly recommend this book!
