    Back a couple of years ago when I was first learning about the subject of passive income that is products you set up only once and then keep making money on into the future without further effort like ebooks or apps one of the first things I learned about the subject is that there are a whole lot of scam artists involved in the passive income racket running essentially pyramid schemes that sell you books about how to get rich doing passive income that essentially say Write a book about passive income then sell it to a bunch of suckers like yourself One of the few people who legitimately impressed me though was Pat Flynn who keeps the BS in his writing down to an absolute minimum is always honest with his audience about how much work is involved with these subjects and what a realistic revenue cap might be and who produces a funny candid weekly podcast devoted exclusively to profiling other people who have set up successful passive income careers of their ownSo flash forward a couple of years to me now being a software developer myself and having an Prime account which just launched its new Prime Reading service; and one of the first books they featured in the Prime Reading program was this one Flynn's nearly 400 page guide to determining whether that brilliant idea that popped into your head last week that you think might make you a million bucks actually is worth pursuing which I read for no other reason than that it was free to me and instantly available on my Kindle And I have to say this is a smart smart book which very methodically walks you through the various steps that a professional product manager at a startup might also go through when trying to determine whether it's worth the company's time to launch a new idea the CEO just came up with; but here those steps are broken down into actions very manageable to a lone unemployed person suggesting a series of realistic alternatives when the expensive and resource consuming options of a fully funded startup aren't at your disposal Can't afford focus groups? Try soliciting opinions at online discussion forums Can't afford to hire a market researcher? Try tracking various Google AdSense keywords and see how often they pop up in your online searches Can't afford a fancy industry conference? There's probably already a thousand podcast episodes at iTunes that will impart the same information completely for freeThat's what I really like about Flynn the most is that unlike so many of these entrepreneur coaches he's not in it primarily to sell a bunch of expensive stuff and then make his money off the affiliate kickback; and that allows him to offer a lot of really meaty useful advice that both makes sense and delivers results made even better by his obsessive desire to do as much of it as possible through completely free channels As someone who's been studying product management and the software development process for about a year now I can say that all the advice in this book matches up nicely with the stuff I've been learning in my classes; and this book comes strongly recommended to anyone out there sitting on a wouldn't it be great if I idea and wants a clear unbiased look at whether it's really worth all the time and effort to see that idea through to completion

    While the content in this book was not all together new for myself specifically there is a decent framework for working through a new product idea The author starts from a product first point of view which he explains is reasonable given that he is trying to help an entrepreneur determine whether the product that they have inside of them which is bursting to get out is something or some variant thereof is worthwhile to take to the market This stands in contrast to the model of starting with the customer and working backwardThe author gives a detailed plan for how to move through the ideation to development to launch If you are an inexperienced entrepreneur have not had formal business school training or have not worked for several years in a smaller company this is a good starting point for working through your idea without feeling like you are being told to go try 100 different things but you are not sure which one will work and neither is the author The inclusion of the case studies at the end of the book was unexpected and appreciated

    Brilliant book If you have a business idea and you are wondering if it will work or not then this is the book for you I have been a listener of Pat's podcast Smart Passive Income for many years now and I felt compelled to read this book even though I have no new business launches coming up in the near future He is very clever in the way he presents There is a real mix of stories acronyms other book references homework to do and lots of actionable steps that all make complete sense It made me realise why some projects in the past have failed and why others have succeeded I listened to the audio version recommended as you get loads of bonus stuff as he often goes off script and the extra Ask Pat type uestions at the end are really interesting I have never seen an author do this before and it made for really good reading However if I did have an idea that I wanted to work through then I would certainly be buying the paperback version so that I can highlight pages that are relevant to me Well done Pat your hard work has paid off

    I would avoid the audiobook as this is a highly hands on book you should aim to follow as a course instead of just listening However if you are familiar with business creating and want to update Yousef or get some new digital tips and hints go for it Fantastic book highly precise and topics extremely well organised o a coherent seuence of events with tons of practical applications

    I'm a big fan of Pat Flynn He's one of the few internet studs that actually seems to care about his followers and fansThis book isn't at all what I expected I was actually expecting very high level general ideas I figured at least getting Pat's opinion would add to my arsenal of business start up ideas tips and tricksUnfortunately if you want to really get value from this book you have to put effort in You actually have to do work That being said this is one of the few books that will actually give you actionable steps and motivate you to take those steps The good news? These steps workThe downside of humans is we don't always want to work We want to get rich uick and cut corners This is a perfect blend of working smarter not harder but also based on reality It takes work to go through the stepsBUT with Pat's method you have peace of mind knowing it will work if you can find the courage and momentum to apply what he's teaching This book will give you step by step instructions for how to launch a business that you can be passionate about AND make money Enjoy Then apply
