Without a shadow of a doubt, The Millionaire Fastlane: Crack the Code to Wealth and Live Rich for a Lifetime! is my number one book of all time. The expression ‘never judge a book by its cover’ doesn’t ring any truer than here. The cover is awful (eye-catching, granted [update: the new version here has a much better cover!) but the contents are pure dynamite. MJ DeMarco, the author, made his money through limo.com and shares his a no-holds barred approach to creating wealth, dispelling the myths and fluff (distractions) along the way. It’s a real eye-opener: if you only read one book on mindset, then let this be it.
Parallels to Property Business
I’d say it’s Rich Dad Poor Dad version 2.0. I’ll be the first to admit that the author’s slant is towards Internet business, rather than running a property business, but there are many, many parallels. MJ DeMarco does not hold back with his forthright view (even our beloved Rich Dad Poor Dad book and property as an investment class gets a mini-bashing at one point — and, as his reader, I understand his viewpoint).
I’ve read The Millionaire Fastlane about three times now and every time I finish it, I’m inspired and excited to push forward (no guesses as to which book I was reading when I got the idea for this website). There’s so much useful stuff inside I think my highlighter pen ran out twice! Reading this book with give you a real sense of urgency about steering your life in the direction that you choose.
