From the New York Times bestselling author of The 10X Rule and If You're Not First, You're Last comes an in-your-face wake-up call for anyone truly ready for success.

We're in the middle of an epidemic of average. So-called 'normal' people get up every day, go to work, do what's asked of them, leave promptly at 5, and return home to sit on the couch and watch TV. Society tells us that this is what it means to lead a balanced life. Don't stress too much or work too hard. Your career isn't everything. But Grant Cardone thinks this preoccupation with balance has really just given an excuse to be mediocre.

The bestselling author, self-made multimillionaire, radio and TV personality, and owner of the Whatever It Takes Network knows that if you want real success, you have to be obsessed. You have to be hungry and hyper-focused and insatiable, and not listen to naysayers who tell you to tone it down. You also have to know how to harness that obsession so that you can use it to your advantage.
Some of his maxims:

·'Criticism is easily avoided by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.'
·'Never fear the haters - fear the weak who listen to them.'
·'Most people are dying at 20 and making it official at 80. Most people are living their life with nothing to brag or talk about.'

If you're looking for someone to coddle you and make excuses for your lack of success, you've come to the wrong book.

Grant Cardone gets you fired up on this audiobook. The way he talks and makes fun of things in between sentences makes you feel he is really in front of you talking straight up to you. I would definitely recommend this books for the information to awaken you and the good sense of humor you can find in it. it's not only entertaining but it can really help out if you have an open mind. Enjoy!

GC has done it again. This book is not for the faint of heart but the chosen few who desire greatness! After leaving the Corp, being surrounded by top performers in the Force Recon I dialed down to a mute. I own an operate a pest control business and I am inundated with bottom feeders! This book made me find that fire in the belly again. So GC if you read this post brother, thank you for taking the time to keep the energy and vibrations high throughout the audio!! I really appreciate the offer and sincerity of being able to reach out to your audience. Great Work! Great Audio! Great Job!

I did enjoy this book quite a bit. The passionate narration by GC was good and lively. At some point I felt like listening to Trump at a republican rally. Then started imagining Trump and Cardone in the same room together and the universe imploding because the critical mass of ego has been exceeded. And I would have to agree with one previous reviewer that the point of this book could be compressed to 45 minutes. But then again, I'm not the guy who went from broke addict to billionaire, Grant Cardone did. So if it takes him 11 hours to tell the story and give advice, I'll listen.

What an ego. What Grant had to say could have been said in 45 minutes, instead his lack of focus on what others could benefit from is lost in a rambling diatribe of words. Don't waste your time.

So far so good, Cardone says it like it is, and keeps it real with hardcore facts of life.

I really like the book but it's a little close to the content of 10x.
