4.0 out of 5 stars A Master Marketer Oct. 21 2007
By Fairly Reliable Bob - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
First this young man trades a red paperclip for a house and now I'm paying him (book royalties)to tell me his story. But it's well worth the price of admission. He combines a clever idea and internet savvy with strong interpersonal skills to entice each trader and thousands of others to join his cause. Easy to read, hard to put down, and the pictures clinch the deal.

I would have given it five stars except that I think he tries a little too hard to convince you he's "an Ordinary Man", which clearly he isn't.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book to gobble up like a can of pringles June 25 2008
By newtonscricket - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I read this in one day, sneaking off from all the other things I was supposed to be doing (sort like Kyle running out to trade a red paperclip when he's supposed to be working on his resume) It's just a lot of fun! A real exercise in see-where-life-takes-you. I love that although Kyle sort of wanted to trade up to a house what was always most important was the next trade and picking the right person by what felt right. A real delight! Way to go Kyle! Can't wait to see what the house trades for!

By Lisa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
A modern day fairy tale where a brave youn man magically turns one red paperclip into a cottage for his fair young maiden. Loved the story from start to finish. What a crazy unpredictable journey. . . and Kyle never forgets that its all about the journey.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't you wish you'd thought of it? Jan. 23 2008
By Kirsty Dunphey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Kyle MacDonald is a rock star if you ask me. His savvy and sense of humour make him instantly endearing and this book is aspirational for anyone looking for "a great big adventure". Love the writing style, love the content, love it's simplicity.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the BEST Books June 28 2008
By Janet E. Spurr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is truly one of the best, inspirational books I've ever read. It helped me to finally complete my first book, after several years. I LOVED the author's passion and determination, his sense of adventure and trust was outstanding. His book is written as if I was sitting down with a great friend at dinner and learning about this amazing experience. The pictures are perfect too, although, everyone that I tell about the book, I mention to make sure not to look at the pictures ahead of time.
