I’m not completely sure where I stand with this book and that’s why I’ve rated it with three stars – neither I like it, not I dislike it as well. Definitely first half of the book I’ve found to be heavily religious oriented; and I’m kinda skeptical about examples used in the first part of the book. By no means I say that I don’t believe in God, of course I do, but this part of the book was just too much. It’s about how you can cure sickness with power of your subconscious mind.
Just at the beginning I have to say how many common sense things this book contains, but still many of us aren’t even aware of them. I was listening the audio version of this book and I have to say that I was enjoying even though 80% of thing presented in this book I was aware of. And because I agree to the most part of what is author have to present, that’s why I like this book.

I have to say that this book was an excellent reading and learning material lately. I see that people mostly read this book to learn tactics which they can use on other people; whether it is for marketing purposes or not, you can use information from this book in that way. But I have to say that this book was really helpful for me to influence myself more to become even better and appreciate myself even more, and that will lead become more appreciated by others as well. I read this book once, and than just went through it one more time a bit quickly to remind myself about some parts. Reading this book I did get more motivated and I’ve had that feeling when you just want to do things.
People who have lately thinking about starting their own business, but don’t have enough knowledge and want to start learning first before they went into business – I would suggest you to read this book. I do have to say that this will not be your complete ‘How to’ guide when it comes learning about how to start your own business, but it’s a good start. Also I would suggest this book to people who already had started business but the business is not doing well. You can learn some important skills that are required, and start working on how to apply some changes to your business and make it better.

This is very basic book, but it’s well put together and contains right balance of example stories and tips you need to know. Only reason for my 3 star rating, is that I know already 90% of things from this book.
Simple explanation of this book would be: if you’re like majority of people who have so many wishes, but doesn’t know what to do – then this book will help you to get into mindset of stopping procrastination and start working to get things that you want. Sound simple, and it’s really just a common sense thing, but seems like so many people lack that motivation to start working. I think that’s because of the ‘quick fixes’ that majority of people is looking in life – and there’s no such thing.
Very interesting story of a 51 year old guy who got fired from his job at Newsweek and getting a job to work at the tech company. But this book is so much interesting because it doesn’t talk about benefits of the tech company so much, it is more focused on providing insights on how does those companies work and how they are funded and operated – or as it should be better putted: how those companies are run by incompetent people and funded by those who cares only about money and will in the end make money. I will call it a bit of a dark side of tech industry, even if it sounds a bit cliche.
Right at the start I have to say that this books is best to use as continuation to the book Building Strong Brands written by the same author. First book will teach you on what steps you need to take when starting to build your brand; and from this book you will learn proper steps that you need to take in order to manage your brand along the way and focusing on long-term profits more, over the short-term profits.

I have to start review of this book by first saying what this book is not because title might make you think differently; this book is not about how you should make everything that’s around you unimportant and meaningless – it’s the opposite of that. From this book you will learn how to differentiate what is important in your live and what’s not; and after realizing what’s important you will, like the author like to say, start giving fuck only about things that are important to you and that will make you happier and more satisfied in life. And I have to say for all of us, this is the ultimate goal in our lives.
