Don’t let the title fool you

The Millionaire Fastlane by M. J. DeMarco
My rating:
5 of 5 stars

I really wish I had read this book when I first started out in business. It contains so many of the things that I have discovered to be true over the years but would have loved someone letting me know ahead of time and saving me the heart ache. I also found the no nonsense style of writing very appealing.

At first glance, the title of the book can be deceiving. Put those fears aside and read it, you'll be glad you did. This is a book that will challenge your perception of being financially successful and give you a practical formula to what brings results.

As with many successful ideas you'll probably have to go against the grain and do things differently from what is generally accepted. This is where this book will challenge many misconceptions and provide recommendations on what really drives success.

For some, the book may be very confronting and this could perhaps turn readers away. However, in many respects if you really want to be successful you need a jolt to make you think, to challenge the path you are on and help you understand what you want to achieve.

Being a fan of the four hour work week I was a little disappointed that it was referred to in a negative light. However, upon further consideration I accept that many people do not understand the principles it espouses. The same could be said of this book which covers many similar concepts but in a different way. Neither book encourages 'quickie' solutions, they challenge the reader to understand what they want and how to practically achieve it.

All in all, I would highly recommend this book and have included as one of my preferred business books to revisit on a regular basis. I found that it provided excellent information as well as solutions that you can implement. It is certainly easy and enjoyable to read.

Don't let the cover fool you, this is a must read book for anyone who truly want to achieve the freedom to live their dreams. The book isn't about short cuts or fantasies it is about doing the hard yards but doing them in practical and intelligent manner.
