Been honest I wish I'd not wasted £12 on this I took little from it.
In my opinion Bard is far better on his feet and I thought the you tube material online was much better.
However, it just seemed to fall apart after the first couple of chapters and I found myself struggling to finish it (I steeled myself and did it). The biggest downside is that it becomes a collection of incoherent ramblings that you can't follow. I had the impression a drunk bloke had cornered me in a pub, desperate to tell me his life story which got very tiresome after a while.
So many businesspeople get ghost writers to pen their books, and Brad Burton definitely has not - but he could really have benefitted from a professional organising his ideas and cutting out the irrelevant stuff.
There are also a couple of sexist bits that really jarred. This was the biggest shame for me, as I am actually a member of his organisation 4Networking, which I think is an innovative breath of fresh air in the stuffed shirts that make up most networking organisations (BNI etc) I know Brad sells himself as breaking the mould and a bit of a rebel but he doesn't need to slide into being offensive to prove that.
All in all, really disappointing after a promising start.
I would not usually leave a review of a book but I felt so strongly that there are far better books to spend your time reading. I don't want to be too mean but GOYA is I'll thought out and not much more than a self proclaimed maveric boosting his ego in a goofy printed format.
Why there are so many 5star reviews is very dubious too....
