I’ve been a fan of John Assaraf for a while now, although this is my first introduction to Murray Smith. Books written by more than one author sometimes have a disjointed feel to them, and this is no exception. I didn’t mind the differences, though. It can be refreshing.
The first half of the book was basically written by John Assaraf. It is more general, following along the same lines as The Secret, although I liked it quite a bit more. Honestly, this book clicked for me in a way no other book has before. I loved his analogy about the NASA experiment with giving special goggles to some astronauts. I think the book is worth picking up at the library, just for that section alone.
The second half of the book is much more practical, and it is obviously written by Murray Smith. He is a successful businessman with a very interesting past, and he talks about the lessons he learned which are specific to business development. They are clear and concise, and I believe ultimately very helpful.
If you are not interested in business, I still recommend picking it up and reading the first half. After checking it out at the library, I could not wait to purchase my own copy. I gave it 4 stars.
