This review is from: The Millionaire Fastlane: Crack the Code to Wealth and Live Rich for a Lifetime! (Paperback)
If you have any entrepreneurial bone in your body, then you cannot pass-up this book. Unlike conventional guru-type self-help authors, there is a strong level of in-your-face honesty that almost cries out as a warning to those who have started a business for all the wrong reasons.
MJ Demarco doesn't want you to fail. He spells out the reasons why, by dividing the haves and the have-nots into easy to read sections and catchy categories that stick. Sidewalk, Slowlane, Fastlane are brilliant terms, especially as he has a "fast car" theme running throughout the book.
He balances his critique by giving you insightful commentary and formula as to what works businesses work in the Fastlane and why. His language is direct - like that of a football coach or a drill sergeant - and never gets into jargon nor does he keep you in ambiguous suspense with vague 'feel good' concepts like 'visualise your goals' or 'turn your passion into income'. He is dead against it, and for those entrepreneurs still trying to achieve success, I think this is a breath of fresh air.
Quite frankly, over a weekend, his formula even changed my own business plan for one of my projects as I realised by applying his methodology that I was locking myself into the Slowlane. For that, the price of this book (Kindle Edition) has literally just paid for itself.
And for those thinking it's an up-sell... there was nothing at the end of this book. No video or extra lesson. Sure there is the forum, but it's free (which I've joined). I have 2 business plans in place that I've redesigned to be Fastlane compliant.
Demarco is the new Branson.
Millionaire Fastlane is the most vital business/entrepreneur book for 2012 and beyond.

I think he meant it in the colloquialist and not literal way
