This book is an excellent and comprehensive analysis of a very important part of the Nazi propaganda machine. Read it if you really want to know what went on.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best property investing book, 5 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Perhaps a better title for this book would have been something like: Property Investing - the Truth and the Best Way to go about it. A lot of people have gone into property investing (either on their own/with friends/family or via some so-called property guru) thinking that it offered a fairly easy and simple way to wealth only to come badly unstuck. Reading this book will tell what it is really all about and it will tell you what you must do if you are to be successful. My advice is don't invest in property until you invest in yourself by STUDYING this book and then get yourself properly prepared - it will pay massive dividends.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Key, 19 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I believe that this book provides the key to what it really takes to become a successful and happy entrepreneur. It covers the really important bases and it will make you think and question yourself. In particular it explains how, if you are really passionate about your venture, it will carry you through the massive amount of time and effort (and the sacrifices (the investment in yourself) that you will inevitably have to make) to realise your dream.

The book is based on a frustrated fed-up employee Tom who is coached during a flight by a successful businessman Michael. During the flight Michael really fires up Tom. Being up in the clouds and getting all fired up is one thing but then getting down to earth and getting on with things is where a lot of people get stuck. In the book Tom gets off the plane and heads for an internet cafe to register his business idea (Couldn't help thinking that it might just as well have said something like, Tom strode off into the sunset and lived happily ever after). Whilst it's important to strike the iron whilst it's hot in reality most people have too many immediate personal and family commitments to simply start straight away. In the book it was stated that you need to be prepared to put in something like 80 hour weeks to get your venture off the ground. What is one supposed to do - just give up your job immediately? You also have the small matter of finding enough money for perhaps some initial investment in your idea and to keep yourself going for some undefined time until the money starts to come in. The book doesn't explain how to overcome those challenges but overcome them you must - I wonder how successful entrepreneurs REALLY managed it?

5.0 out of 5 stars Get control of your time, 31 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you feel that you never have enough time to devote to the important things in order to move yourself forward in life then this is a must read book. Don't allow too many disorganised things to push you around but use this book as a guide to get control and priortise your time; if you don't you'll never make much progress. The book is divided up into lots of bite sized chunks that will give you a lot of food for thought. If you invest a relatively small amount of time to go through this book you should get a very big return.
