Publisher's Summary

Has the "settle-for-less" financial plan become your plan for wealth? That plan sounds a little something like this:
"Graduate from college, get a good job, save 10% of your paycheck, buy a used car, cancel the movie channels, quit drinking expensive Starbucks mocha lattes, save and penny-pinch your life away, trust your life-savings to the stock market, and one day, when you are oh, say, 65 years old, you can retire rich."
Since you were old enough to hold a job, you've been hoodwinked to believe that wealth can be created by blindly trusting in the uncontrollable and unpredictable markets: the housing market, the stock market, and the job market. I call this soul-sucking, dream-stealing dogma "The Slowlane" - an impotent financial gamble that dubiously promises wealth in a wheelchair.
Accept the Slowlane as your financial roadmap and your financial future will blow carelessly asunder on a sailboat of hope: hope you can get a job and keep it, hope the stock market doesn't tank, hope the economy rebounds, hope, hope, and hope. Do you really want hope to be the centerpiece of your family's financial plan?
Drive the Slowlane road and you will find your life deteriorate into a miserable exhibition about what you cannot do, versus what you can. For those who don't want a lifetime subscription to "settle-for-less", there is an alternative; an expressway to extraordinary wealth capable of burning a trail to financial independence faster than any road out there. And shockingly, this road has nothing to do with jobs, 401(k), mutual funds, or a lifestyle of mediocrity.
Demand more. Change lanes and find your explosive wealth accelerator. Hit the Fastlane, crack the code to wealth, and find out how to live rich for a lifetime.

Cracking the code = Not going to find it here.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Practical advice, next steps, solid tools for listener to use.

Has The Millionaire Fastlane: Crack the Code to Wealth and Live Rich for a Lifetime turned you off from other books in this genre?

No. I'll not buy another book from this author though.

What three words best describe MJ DeMarco’s performance?

Self-consumed, pompous, immature

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Very little. Frankly can't think of anything he has shared that was helpful except for my thinking I should learn how to code and build my own websites.

Any additional comments?

DeMarco breaks down his basic theory on sucess breaking success into two groups, slow lane success and fast lane success. I'm in chapter 15 and so frustrated listening to the same damning example after example after example of slow lane success techniques. Each example of how other people are stupid comes dripping with an all knowing attitude while avoiding any tangible steps for you to make going forward. Granted I'm only in Chapter 15 so haven't listened to the bitter end but all I've suffered through could have been easily summarized in one chapter.Have you ever been trapped with someone who can't stop talking about themselves and how smart they are and sharing their opinions on how the world works? DeMarco may know how to make money for himself but his book is desperately short on valuable insight as to how you might be able to do it. I can sum up what I've heard so far in a couple sentences. All I keep hearing is how awesome he is, what a great life he has and how if I'm smart I'll want to be like him.Saving money, investing in mutual funds or stocks or anything like that is stupid "slow lane" thinking. You need to come up with an idea to make money like I did with my internet company and make money in the fast lane! - Now you'll be waiting to hear details or formulas helping you do the same but they won't be there. You'll just keep hearing those same two lines over and over. I'm 9 hours and 12 minutes into a 12 hour book and so far that's all I've gotten out of it. So much of it is telling you that life is short. I feel like I've wasted 9 hours of it listening to this book. I'm giving up.

I almost did not purchase this book because of the title, but I'm so glad I did! This could very easily be the best book I've read in years. I currently earn an above average income (low 6 figures). Even though I can afford a good living, I feel like saving through my 401k is not getting me anywhere fast. As a former financial advisor, I believe the author's ideas are sound and he confirms why I felt like a fraud every time I pitched stocks and mutual funds. While it has been done, it is extremely difficult to make big gains in the stock market. It's mainly a really slow game that takes more than a couple decades to work. This book presents a mental state rather than a step by step plan. The author gives many examples of fast track success stories and most importantly, he doesn't sell any of the content as "get rich easy". Oh, and there's no up selling attempts within this book!
