Ramblings

Nothing of value here. It’s basically the personal opinions of a sales manager that wants to be a motivational coach

Good narration but repeating others ideas

What I didn’t like about book was repeating the contents of bestseller authors and business ideas, mixing it up with personal stories and delivering it as like it’s a novel idea or solution. I don’t really admire the authors that try to resell new ideas.
The book had a good opening and narration was good to me!

Sincerely Brilliant!

Sincerely Brilliant! This book is a 'must read' for those who are obsessed with success. Pat reads as though he's in the room, having a conversation with you. Bringing to light concepts you may not be aware of and reframing those you are. Take this opportunity to add to your entrepreneurial arsenal. Learn from someone who's already been there, walked the path you're eager to take. I'll certainly be applying the 'gems' from this book to my endeavours.

Could not tolerate this book

I could not get through chapter two of this book. I did not return it so that I could share this warning with other readers. My wife and I own small business. Our most recent read was The Passion Economy. In contrast, this book is about bloodthirsty cutthrout competition. It is packed with grievance politics and toxic masculinity. I am a 60 year old man and have worked all of my life for others. I am done with that, but I refuse to think that this is who I should be to succeed. If you value life over wealth, this book is not for you.

Mediocre; few actionable take-aways.

Your Next Five Moves seemed like a must-read strategy book. The author tries to connect skilled business people with chess grandmasters. it's a weak thesis and never really connects with the content and information presented. in most chapters, the author is simply trying to recall what he did 10-15 years ago. Given this, it is hard to connect with much of the background info and narrative. It is just not compelling; it is a mediocre text at best; and, by the end of the audiobook I was really like, " So what? Where are the real take-aways to help me grow a sustainable and profitable business?"

Truly art in literature

As a young entrepreneur I’m always skeptical on the information I take in. I don’t want to be misled and want to avoid any mistakes early on my career if possible. Patrick manages to dissolve my concerns early on in the book, as well as drown me in 16 chapters of non stop value. The lessons and strategy skills I pulled away from this book have literally fired me up. I can’t wait to start applying everything to my business practices and forward this book over to my team. If you’re new to entrepreneurship do yourself a favor and just give it a listen.

Meh

If you like his YouTube channel, you’ll enjoy this because it is the same style. Lots or common business and self-help, but little original or useful deep dive info. I love business and entrepreneur books, but this was just meh.

Too much fluff

I got halfway through the book and gave up. I'm a huge fan of the author, but this book has way too much fluff! You're better off checking his content on YT way more actionable and useful.

This is a must listen MASTERPIECE for me. The author, Patrick Bet-David is authentic in telling his story as if he were there having a fireside chat with you. Much respect! By the way, I AM #4 (PURPOSE). Continued success and blessings. GOOD STUFF.

Life Changing

As im sitting here after finishing the book and my outdoor workout All I can say is im INSPIRED.

As a kid I've always played chess with my dad and official tournaments and let me tell you this book makes a lot of sense...

Ive never thought about how you can plan for your next 5-10-15 moves ahead and win the game of life.

This gives me full clarity on what I want next to happen.


Im going for it all!!!

Not worth the time or money

Narrator just goes on and on, making the most basic, obvious and simple things sound like he invented something groundbreaking.

Bought it based on the good reviews, but really disappointed.

At least his messages are easy to understand and explanations are clear, so giving it two stars instead of one

In many instances the book sounded like a library review of self development and business books...
The book could have been shorter.

Full of hands on advice, no fluff 👏

What a relief to find a business book that doesn’t follow the typical semi-biography, semi-new-agey-biz-advice approach, that so many famous entrepreneurs “write” these days 👏👏 This book is full of practical advice along with some great stories/examples. Loved the book recommendations too. Well worth the listen! Thanks Patrick for putting this great book out!

Changed the game.

“Horses for courses” in regards to the few negative reviews I’ve seen, but I cannot disagree more. In my opinion, they completely ‘didn’t get it’. Regardless of what stage you are at in your life/career. If entrepreneurship or working for yourself is something you’re interested in, read/listen to this book. I was told about this book by an investor and I’ve told every man and his dog since. Straight talking - the way I like to be told. I’ve read a lot of ‘self-help’ books and I sometimes never finish them. This fired me up every morning. Safe to say - I highly recommend this book.

5 out of 5

I think this is a worthwhile book reading if you want success and can be honest with yourself.

Outlines the qualities for success in business and measuring these against your own actions.

Enjoyable, thought provoking and motivating.
