Not what I was expecting. This is one of the best management books I've read in years. It's full of practical advice and has very little overlap with other managent books that are out there. Definitely recommend it!

Love this book, not just ideas but practical content that can be immediately put to use.

I'm not religious, but I started the gnosticism course by this author and ended up listening to it 4 times. Just picked up this course and finished it in a week. Solid author and content and I definitely recommend it to anyone with an interest in early Christianity and how religions in general come into being.

Makes you appreciate modern life

Took a few lectures to get into this, but definitely a worthwhile listen. Gave me a whole new appreciation for the age we live in, and for the struggles of those who came before.

Puts modern life into perspective, and what really constitutes a struggle.

Brilliant overview of early Christianity, Gnosticism, and the paths a religion can take during its gestational phase. Should be of interest to any student of religion, history, or esoteric philosophy.

Good overall. Wish the author read it.

David, you've got a good voice, I wish you had read this yourself...

Some overlap with other works by the author but overall a good book if you're deling with diverse teams in business or other organizations. I would recommend it to people who have a need for understanding why their lines of communication break down, and they don't know why.

A lot of really basic information, not too useful for someone whos done a few deals. IMO Bigger Pockets or Grant Cardone would be a better starting point.

Good one

Not a lot of good real estate books out there but this is definitely one of them. Introduced to Bigger Pockets by Grant Cardone, both have different angles and both offer a lot of insight. Hope for more books like this in the future, keep it up!

Not much new material

"Essentially" a book on work-life balance. I was excited by the write up of the book but it failed to deliver any genuinely new ideas. One good idea I got was "if you didn't already have x thing, what would you do to get it?" if the answer is "not much", it might be a pass. Other than that, there's a lot of opinion on what the author thinks is important, but not much information about how to identify it. Might be good if you haven't read other business books, but I would look elsewhere for new ideas.

Crazy fun book

Not what I expected. Thoroughly enjoyable book that challenged my preconceptions about who wins in business.
