Publisher's Summary

The rapid development of technology and globalization has changed the leverage points in accumulating wealth: money, meaning and freedom.

Those that don't adapt are becoming trapped in the downward spiral of a dying middle class - working harder and earning less.

Entrepreneurs that understand the new paradigm have created unprecedented wealth in their lives and the lives of those they love.

OMG! EYEOPENER!

If you're looking for confirmation that the Corporate rat trap will soon be a thing of the past, and there is how that we all have opportunities to carve our own path, read this! My Dad was probably 40 years ahead of his time and I was a late bloomer, I think there are many more of us than we realise. The world really is our oyster!

Serious food for thought, but more so for action

The End of Jobs by Taylor Pearson, brings to light the risks of staying the course of the status quo, when it comes to traditional jobs, while encouraging less is more when it comes to true freedom and fulfillment. As always, one will find some bones to spit out, but there was plenty of meat for actionable thought nourishment.

Loved it so much, I want to hire a narrator.

Great content, but awfully monotonous narration by the author. Even the questions ended in a downward inflection. It was read like a ho-hum middle school essay, but the content was absolutely awesome. So I dealt with the narration.

Inspiring

This was a great book. Useful information headed out in a logical way. However, most importantly, is has moved me to take action. I am inspired, and I now know that now is the time. Thanks.

Clear presentation of our future and possibilities

Ideas were weighty and well-backed: I needed longer pauses and musical interludes, and perhaps more reflective music, to digest.

Pretty insightful and inspiring

Wish it was longer. Got tons of information here. Creating a business is hard...but not as hard as we make it seem. Financial freedom is achievable.

some parts were funny, some were somewhat surprising. Makes complete sense to me, I have believed this for many years. The age of the Entrepreneur ! Love it !
