Publisher's Summary

The marketplace is chock full of books on business and entrepreneurship. To the credit of many visionary business authors, some of these books are actually good reads. The App Millionaire, however, is a book that only comes around once in a decade, if that. The genius of The App Millionaire is that it forces you to take a close and personal look at your business goals while challenging your approach on business development. Since this is not just a book about business, The App Millionaire turns traditional mainstream thinking on its head. This is a book about Business, Ideas, and Life
Instead of the axiom of "think big", the author, Greg Shealey, PhD suggests you "think small". He advocates for very small business development, as in micro-business small. Thisphilosophy of micro-business entrepreneurship has afforded many people the opportunity to own profitable businesses with advantages to traditional business models such as very little overhead, a quick start-up time, and lower risk, just to name a few. He believes the advantages of a micro-business far outweigh the advantages of large business development. Take a quick listen for yourself, do the math, weigh your options, and draw your own conclusion.

Ugh...Reads like an infomercial.

What would have made The App Millionaire better?

Well I haven't got through the first half of it, but it's driving me nuts. If I hear the words "App Millionaire" one more time... I'm only dissappointed you can't throw an audiobook across the room like you can a regular book. It reads like a bad info-mercial "You too can be an app millionaire but it takes hard work and be organized...bla bla bla... If you're that kind of person you can be an app millionaire (tm)...

That far into the book and literally NOTHING that will actually help you start a business based on mobile applications.

Less fluff and more meat. And stop saying "App Millionaire." It's not a witty catch-phrase. After the first 20 times or so... It's like fingernails on a chalk board.

What was most disappointing about Greg Shealey’s story?

I don't care about your dad's business. I don't care about how you moved from construction contracting to application development. --actually I might be interested in "how" but so far all I'm hearing is "that" you did. I don't need to know what apps are, or that they're "revolutionary" beyond a really short introduction paragraph.

So far the only "how" you have in the first third of the book is that you drew out on paper what you wanted your first app to do then hired someone to make it. Gee I would have never thought of that!

What I DID want to know was something that would help me with ideas I might not have thought of... not "be organized" and "work hard" with long drawn out anecdotes to support those obvious-isms.

I find the book patronizing and devoid of any real substance with the words "App Millionaire" thrown in ad nauseum. Now maybe the details are in the last half of the book but I honestly can't get through the first half, I'm sorry.

What three words best describe Greg Shealey’s performance?

Very well spoken.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The App Millionaire?

The words or sentences containing "App Millionaire"

Any additional comments?

The reading was good. But this kind of patronizing "self-help" book is just not useful to me.

What did you love best about The App Millionaire?

This book was a gift from a friend who said I MUST read it. I thought this was going to be another one of those business books but to my surprise its totally different. I love how he tells the story about his journey from teacher to entrepreneur. A must read for any would be entrepreneur. This book gives “The Four Hour Work Week” a run for its money. Very inspiring Greg Shealey!

Completely off topic and pointless

Firstly the title of this books is misleading as only about 10% of the content is relevant to app making.

Secondly you would only find this book useful if you have been living in 1984 and suddenly found yourself in 2013. So basic and obvious it is completely pointless and serves no purpose other than to make the author a few cents.
