This book is aimed at corporate ladder climbing types who love Ted talks and apps that make them feel more "productive", you know who I'm talking about. For actual Entrepreneurs who want something practical it isn't that great. Spends too much time repeating basic ideas. Towards the end of the book there is a good section on how to construct your product line which I learned from. Arguably that would be enough to say it's a 4/5 start book for some people.
However, there is also a section at the back of the book where the author offers free tickets to his speaking events to anyone who gives his book a review on amazon. Now I didn't say they had to give it a glowing review, just any review. But I think incentivising people to review your book with freebies is going to lead to more positive reviews because if you're looking to go to his events you're more likely to give him a good review or turn a 4* opinion into a 5* one before you take a screenshot of it to send him. Maybe I'm wrong but I felt like this was a cheap way for the author to boost the rating for his book on Amazon and given the average content and filler I think I'm right.
