I have a strong value for academic, heavily cited, well founded work. It bolsters credibility and is basically a more formal version of the idea of credit where credit is due, especially if those people would appreciate it. I have also personally experienced a pretty good amount of certain folks intentionally let's say copying off my homework. I largely don't care about that too much when I'm allowing it, though it's probably more valuable to learn with a tutor directly. When somebody goes out of their way to an extent to do the right thing and provide good credit where credit is due; however, it's significantly conducive to value and I have a thorough appreciation of that. Throughout this book (and also Anthony Scaramuccis other books actually) he does make note of a pretty good number of people in reasonable detail who have helped him out or made him who he is. That makes the book for me. I would recommend you purchase all of his books he's released to date. They likely have an overwhelmingly positive expected value for you if you pick up just a point or two from each book. This would be especially true for people still in university as the impact this can have on you and the people you interact with over the course of your career would obviously be increased exponentially if you only factor basic compound interest.
This book is very disappointing. There is very little of value. It's basic purpose is for the author to tell the world what a great life he has had. He gives advice like mentor people as much of possible and give lots of money to charity, which is easy for him to say since he was making a million dollars a year since his twenties. He spends lots of time telling you to follow rules we learn as children, like treat people with respect, be nice, and don't discriminate. He loves to name drop about successful people that he knows personally. He gives stories of some adversity he faced, where of course he always came out ahead. Although he claims to be fallabe, all his examples are self-aggrandizing. If you follow his advice, you do great; if you don't follow it, you fail miserably. It's really a shame that the author didn't have anything insightful to say after all his years of experience in finance.
