chapter 20 shocked me!

the fantasy is nice to become a billionaire, but the price to pay is not worth it. what shocked me is that a lot of them want to be just millionaires so they have freedom, family time and so on... I have definitely decided I dont want to go for crazy wealth, its easy to watch a fancy documentary and get inspired to build something huge and live a big life but the price you need to pay is just not worth it in my view. Getting to $10-50M is definitely worth it, as soon as humanly possible.

A Book of Solid Business Principals

The Billion Dollar Secret included many solid business principles directly from various business leaders that have also been written about by authors such as Napoleon Hill and other self development experts.

It was an entertaining listen and the narrator’s voice was very suitable in expressing the ideas and opinions of the various business leaders in the book.

A highly recommended book for anyone focused on success.

The Best Business Book I've Ever Read - GET THIS.

I have to leave a review for this book. I must. Never have I enjoyed every single chapter of a book this much. There is so much golden advice in here that, if one would follow all of it, he or she easily could become a billionaire. This book is the real deal. You are stealing from yourself if you don't get it. Thank me later and start listening!

Platitudes and Banalities

Work hard, dream big are just some of the "secrets" revealed in this book. Very light on detail, besides a few anecdotes. To make matters worse, the narrator's high-pitched voice, paired with a 1950s radio host rythm & style, makes this book a pure pain in the ear. Maybe, the Billionaire Secret is that there is no secret. Which gives this book a well deserved one star rating.

Narration makes this book unusable

I love the content of this book, I also have it on Kindle. However the narration of this audible copy is horrible. It sounds like a children's book. The narrator even uses different goofy voices to show that different people are talking or being quoted. I can't believe how bad this is. It's embarrassing to listen to out loud. Other than that the content is great! I do recommend the material, but look for a different audio version.

Great story except for redundancy

This was a great book except for the redundancy of "billion dollar gold nuggets" repeated throughout the book.

Annoying narrative

Shame as this is a really good book with regards content, but the audio is annoying for one reason.

Clearly in the physical book they have little quotes every few pages. Well they quote them which is fine, but also the same Twitter hashtag after each quote.

The result is at least every 2 minutes, the narrator says: "hashtag billion dollar gold nuggets"

Might seem like nothing but over 8 hours that's a lot of times to hear the same thing repeatedly.

Would be excellent without that, surely someone should have proof listened before publishing.

I felt as if I knew the interviewees personally

A bit of a long read but some highly useful content within. I hadn’t heard of a lot of the entrepreneurs and names featured but after hearing of their success and stories on how they built their wealth I felt as if I knew them personally. Credit to the author for excellent storytelling and deep diving!

Great !

I am thoroughly enjoying this book
It provides so much insight and shows that billionaires are really just like you and me with a few extra behavioural differences that you can adopt or cut out some non efficiencies in your life
The reading is great , I like that the reader changes his voice to sound like different people it’s pretty cool !
I don’t mind that there are no women entrepreneurs mentioned as in the other comment, I think that’s a pretty silly thing to worry about, it might just be the case that women billionaires didn’t agree to his interview?
You don’t have to completely agree on what they’re teaching, this books shows that even amongst billionaires they are all different with different ways of operating
The only thing I didn’t agree to was that he says “billionaires are not intelligent, they are adventurous” I believe you need to be both
It contradicts the fact that they read, get mentored have to think strategically and make smart decisions for their businesses so that part I found odd. All in all amazing book highly recommend

Some good insights to take home

I found some good insights however overall the book is repetitive and solely focussed on men.

The guy who narrates - his voice is a bit annoying. Towards the end it talks about more male billionaires and whom they admire - this could have been explained better.

He also keeps mentioning #milliondollargoldnuggets which again is marketing extreme.
