He spends the first 2 hours bragging about his method, he spends maybe a total of an hour giving you the profit first method. I mean there's a few take homes, but nothing new. Create bank accounts make sense, so there's your one nugget. I'd suggest for people that implement this to find bank accounts that yields high interest so your not just opening a bunch of accounts and not getting anything back from it.
Read a summary and save your time, I have open loop syndrome... If I start something, I finish it, wish I didn't start this one.
