Would you ever listen to anything by Jonathan Green again?
Any additional comments?
The title is misleading. The book is vaguely describing his process of making money by writing books about popular subjects with little prior understanding and he is proud of it.
This book should have been called. How I quit my 9 to 5 job by spewing out books and selling them to gullible people like you.
The book starts fine, he makes some "ok" remarks about the society and the education system. He encourages the reader/listener to make lists and and targets but these lists are not utilized.He either forgot about it or he didn't really had a plan at the start.
There is a part in the middle which he talks about how great his networking skills are , why you should pay him or buy his products and so on. It is really hard to listen. It is like listening to an hour of advertising.It goes on forever.
He also talks about buttering up rich people to get sweet deals , but it is not explained which kinds of deals he is referring to.. His advice on networking is talk to people, offer value, buy drinks for people and talk to their wives.... there are no gems here , these are the things what any sane people would do..except talking to the wives part.
Later he starts by saying that everyone has a skill and he will come back to that. His advice later on is to write a book about it ,sell your services online or shoot a video. If you are not a simpleton you already know this stuff, everyone has heard about the YouTube millionaires , or seen an add or two which takes to online training courses.There is noting new here.
Towards the end he talks about cutting costs, how he ghost writes to earn extra cache. It seemed funny because an hour ago he was telling how he was making 6 figures or he gets sweet deals because he has tons of rich friends.
He talks about how he achieved greatness, how happy he is , how wonderful his life is..ect.. He boasts about his life so much , it makes it seem like he has a terrible sad life, i hope it is not the case.
I believe the software which he uses to divide the chapters of the book worked against him. There is no real composition or a natural flow between chapters. The way which he mentioned how websites changed by talking about the early operating systems blew my mind. I don't think he really researched any of the material before writing this book.Some stuff can not be leaned by reading a couple of articles or by taking courses.
This explains why there is no system, no real advice about anything other than writing books.
Last but not least, at the end he tells you that he will send you a coupon if you mail him a screen shot of your 5 star review. I think it is telling some thing about the author, I leave it up to you to decide .

Jonathan Green speaks cutting edge about the state of the work field in 2017. To count on a JOB and corporate America to take care of us is no longer a "secure" way to plan your life. I read this in perfect timing for me, I was already moving to creating my own job. What he added to that was to diversify as well. This was a fabulous bonus because I was giving myself a lot of pressure to succeed at the current project. Now I can relax and do it well, but continue to think of the next thing rather than bet everything on one idea.
Thank you Jonathan! I will be combing through your site as well, as you've invited us to.
