Don't buy this book... Please, Feb. 19 2012
First of all, the author isn't even a millionaire, and was only making $100,000 per year - only because he was good at sales and marketing, which you learn in school.
He's anti-education and believes that school is a waste of time and won't give you skills to make real money. Well, first of all in Ontario the average family doctor makes $300,000 per year, a specialized doctor makes an average of $360,000 per year. The average Chartered Accountant in Canada earns $192,000 a year, Engineers earn $100-$160,000 per year etc, etc... Much more than what this guy makes - before he decided to write a book on being highly successful, of course, which he is not even qualified for. He's articulate enough to write a book, I will give him that credit.
Ok, if you want to make lots of money you wouldn't take something like 'art history' and expect to make a lot of money - obviously.. Take something that is in demand - obviously. Have a plan - obviously. And no you don't need to rack up a half a million dollars in debt to go to school!!!! I knew one psychiatrist who only ended up having to pay $40,000 when she was finished school, which is nothing... Have common sense..
All these anti-education, non-practical books out there about success are turning people into complete morons!!!!! A lot of random people are talking about their future and saying, 'school is a waste of time and money, i'm just going to buy a triplex and be automatically set up for life', or, 'i'm just going to start a business and then i'm automatically going to be rich for life', then after talking with them and asking them what they're going to do or what skills they do have that they can offer people, you find out that they do not have any skills or knowledge about anything whatsoever and they will never amount to anything in their lives.. This is not what the world needs. We don't need more and more losers floating around dreaming about getting rich without knowing anything about anything or having any skills to serve others at all!!!!!
