Publisher's Summary

In The Entrepreneur Roller Coaster you will learn the best strategies Darren has ever collected from the most successful people on the planet, covering the four essential skills necessary for entrepreneurial success: sales, recruiting, leadership, and productivity.

This essential guidebook will prepare you for the wild ride of entrepreneurship. It will warn you (of forthcoming fears, doubts, and the self-defeating conditioning of your upbringing and past), inoculate you (from the naysayers, dream-stealers, and pains of rejection and failure), and guide you (as you build those underdeveloped skills of independence, self-motivation, and self-accountability) safely past the landmines that blow up and cause the failure of 66 percent of all new businesses.

Discover why NOW is the best time to #JOINTHERIDE.

PRETENTIOUS

This is a book about an upper middle class guy who had $5000 dollars at 18 in the 1980's to put into a water filter business (Que inspiration).

He then moves on to some of my favorite quotes: "could you imagine a world without apple?" (yes! yes I can!). And a classic pretentious quote: " those who don't have a passion don't have a right to live" and "every one has a passion, they are just too [dumb] to realize it)" << I may have over exaggerated this last one.

A true fan boy of everything that's on TV and social media, He makes a ton of references to pop culture and sheeple interests. Basically another Elizabeth Holmes wanna be.

The book as a whole was a pretentious privileged rant. (think valley girl, Starbucks in hand, and apple products in the other)

I would skip this honestly. It wasn't worth a credit... might return if amazon allows me to.
Nothing here you can't find in other books. Just a bunch of talking points about failure (which was good, so 2 stars).

This is best book I’ve read in 2019

Lately I’ve been on a book binge and on that binge was the compound effect. After I was so deeply impacted by that book I decided to read this one, and it did not disappoint. Truly a must read

Gave up halfway though

If Tony Robbins-esque platitudes are your thing, you will love this book.

I don't, so I didn't.

The guy comes across as a huckster who selectively cribs his examples from actually successful entrepreneurs (think Steve Jobs, etc) to support whatever idea he might be wanting to push forward.

My advise would be to read their books instead, this guy is hardly insightful.

encouraging!

if you're looking for someone to tell you that "you can do it", if you're looking for encouragement, if you're looking for someone to tell you that there will be failures along the way but you will triumph then this is the book for you.

Vapid and No Real Insights

Hardy fills this entire book with almost nothing. Glad it was free with the Audible subscription, otherwise I’d return it and ask for my money back.

Generic

I just can’t seem to find a book that gives practical information and advice about leadership and success. This book feels a lot like generic stories and basic answers to easy questions. This book is good for an easy and somewhat entertaining read but if you want to learn about entrepreneurship and business from a practical standpoint then look elsewhere.

A MUST READ, doing after knowing is the key.

One of the most valuable resources I could lay my hand on.
Great proven practices, when implemented consistently over a period of time gives stunning results.
Be a doet not a dreamer.
Learning and not doing as good as not knowing.
So what's important is to ACTION ORIENTED.

Initially offputting but then absolutely brilliant

Clearly entertainment was intended to be part of the equation and initially it all felt a bit "cheesy" and over the top (that is where 1 star went, almost feel guilty about that but it is more about managing expectations and others not to give up because of that). Perhaps that is just the German expat in London clashing with the US style. It took me a while to get into it but then actually enjoyed it even though I thought I shoud not, like a guilty pleasure. But then you start listening and get the messages and realise this is not another Academic or McKinsey consultant trying to eloquently deliver the latest research but that it is hands-on experience. A lot of it. You will have read about most concepts somewhere else, but I cannot say that I have seen another publication that brings the package together as focussed as Darren does and then also makes you feel really bad if you don't immediately act on it. Makes sense as one of the big messages in the book is that what makes the entrepreneurial difference is the step form dreaming to doing, crossing that gap. I will listen to it again (as that is what the Dr ordered) and I am already acting.

Really enjoyed the story

Some great ideas in this book, well structured and it’s delivered really well.

The summary of the book is exactly what it says in the title but it explores how to navigate common issues.

Explains so much more than I was expecting

So the title makes it sound like it will give you steps to set up a business, right? Well it does that, but a lot more!

It focuses on the WHY in the business you are starting and gives great advice and resources to help you answer that question. Then it gives great life advice to handle the HOW you are going to achieve the goals you need to set.

I went in for this for business advice but came out with solid life advice. 100% recommend for everyone.
It also covers aspects of business you may not have thought about, delegation, hiring challenges, leadership, etc.

The audio is great! Although the author does have a bit of infomercial sound to their voice.

Excellent Book for Entrepreneurs

The content in this book is raw and real, and full of nuggets of invaluable information for the budding entrepreneur. Darren tells a lot of stories about entrepreneurs he has met, interviewed and been around. The stories help shape the narrative of the book and fit perfectly with the points he makes throughout each topic. Can't recommend this book enough!
