Review by SimonHedley | The Strategic Alchemist

I’ve got to know Gary over the decade. I’ve seen him sharing, growing and learning.. And more than that helping. His #AskGaryVee work is a massive step forward both those in the corporate space looking to make the step outside and into the faster waters of modern entrepreneurship and social influence, and also those looking to free themselves from the distraction rich world of the guru cult snake oil training space.

I come from a background of business, banking and entrepreneurship. I also know there is more to life than just making money.

Why I’m writing this is in the last few days, I met with Gary live in London and watched him being present and talking to hundreds of people who came and asked Gary V. There was no ego, there was no security, there was a man who was and is deeply passionate about 1) being authentic 2) cutting through the BS 3) walking his talk.

He wouldn’t have done that for the money or to sell some books. He actually 100% deeply cares. Meet him, shake his hand and get behind the “noise” of @askgaryvee

We also run a charity , and we’ve given his previous books – jab jab jab hook, and shared his content and it’s made a difference to a lot of people. So far early days.. But the same here ..

If you want to see why 300+ people came at a few hours notice after a simple post on Instagram and snapchat.. Read this book.

And remember all it takes is one simple idea, implemented to make the difference.

This book will give you more than one..

There are fewer people right now I would recommend you read if you wanted a fresh mindset and fresh take – based on tried and tested logic

Gary is someone that is walking the talk of being a growth mechanic and I know because I am too. This is not noise or gambling. This is work. And he’s loyal to what he knows works.

He’s also willing to admit – I was wrong and learn and move forward.

Read the book, apply what you learn, and hopefully I’ll be learning and partnering and buying from you soon too.

Shibumi, by Trevanian

Shibumi, by Trevanian

I was asked to read this book by a mentor of mine and at first I really couldn’t get into it.

It is a deep and profound story highlighting the massive difference in culture between Japan and the West, especially American. Reading it I felt a great admiration for the attention to detail, sophistication and subtlety of the Japanese culture and something bordering on disgust for the crassness of the American ways – but that is how it is written and how we are “supposed” to feel I’m sure.

Some of it I felt went on for too long, for example some of the cave passages but one chapter in particular I found fascinating with many deep insights into nature, culture and character – the chapter with Monsieur de Lhandes. In fact this chapter was a real highlight of the book for me… and I love this quote “one of the difficult things for egocentric Man to face is that he is a minor character in every biography but his own” – which is of course why people worry unnecessarily about what people think of them because the reality is they probably aren’t thinking about them at all they are too self obsessed!

I can see that paying acute attention to subtlety, detail, attaining perfection for its own sake is possibly true mastery and that honour can be an elusive but prized attribute. But as a generalist rather than a specialist I found the fixations to be bordering on obsessions which appear to lead more to agony and heartbreak than to contentment and joy and as such it left me moved but questioning and wanting something different.

Second Chance by Robert Kiyosaki

Second Chance

By Robert Kiyosaki

I was recommended to read this by a friend who has taken part in coaching with the Rich Dad team. She told me it would give me a whole new perspective on assets and the current state of finance, economics and the world stage. It did.

Robert Kiyosaki (author of Rich Dad Poor Dad and many others) explains – in an easily read way – how finances, education, politics are all controlled by the very wealthy to further benefit them BUT far from being “rich bashing” it demonstrates how to think differently, how to act as the wealthy do and how to learn the art of true success and true wealth.

Forewarned is fore armed and Robert’s forecasting of another crash, bigger than ever before, in or around 2016 (which he made in 2002) and which was influenced by the work of Bucky Buckminster Fuller flags up what we can do to attempt to avert this individually and globally.

His wisdom on different types of intelligence and the evident necessity for a different kind of education, which isn’t still firmly rooted in the Industrial Age, rings so true that you wonder why this isn’t our reality…but he shares his insights on what is holding the change back too.

If you think you need to get out of debt, think again. If you think you need savings, forget it. If you believe stocks and shares will provide for your old age, start to question it…quickly. For a fresh and insightful view of true assets, real cashflow and abundance read this book.
