The PMP exam is the golden standard for project management professionals, but let's face it - it's tough to stay conscious when reading the PMBOK. This audiobook is the antidote. Everything you need to know to pass the PMP exam is included. Enjoy a fun-but-serious way of learning the PMP material, which includes some great mnemonics on memorizing knowledge areas, processes, and process groups.

This course is much better than the ones on learning platforms such as Udemy. Had to reduce the speed so I could take some notes. Narration methods ensure your memorization is good. Loved listening to this audio book. Next I will listen to Phil's PMP Quiz book.

I was a little skeptical at the beginning as the previous two audio books on related topic were disappointing and boring.
This book has some sound strategies I can now apply as I take on creating new marketing campaigns for my fledgling business.
The approaches and stories are well explained and in a simple way that can be retained by the brain. The examples are relevant but definitely miss an entire chapter on examples. That would have triggered more ideas in relation to the content I need for my business.

Here is my personal honest opinion. I started listening to this audio book with an expectation that it will touch the hot buttons right from the start. I am a few chapters into it and I didn't know what and how I am going to use the information provided. It was always either how profit first author did wonders for clients or amazon. I thought this book is for any e-commerce business and will live up to the title. However, the first half was just about the author's clients, how they did and Amazon FBA. There are tons of videos on that and courses on Udemy. Only in the second half there was some meaningful information on separating the bank accounts in Inventory, Profits, Tax, Owner's Pay, etc. That should be worth trying. Summary at the end of each chapter is missed or not adequate. Expectations unmet for me personally. I respect others opinions though. Also, regardless of that, I would still look forward if I get any response from the author to the email. Wish the author best and an improved version and other books soon. Cheers.

The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won’t make a search engine. And the next Mark Zuckerberg won't create a social network. If you are copying these guys, you aren't learning from them. It's easier to copy a model than to make something new: doing what we already know how to do takes the world from 1 to n, adding more of something familiar. But every time we create something new, we go from 0 to 1.
