This book was a fun read. I didn’t expect a business book, or a deep tail of the human condition. But what I did get was a pretty interesting understanding on where Richard Rawlings came from and how approaches business. It’s open, honest, and overall it leaves you feeling like you would have a beer with him. He never tries to pass himself off as something he is not, and gives credit where credit is due. I really do recommend this book. By the way, there is some business sense in the book as well. Check it out!

As a huge fan of the show Fast and Loud, I have always liked Richard Rawlings. His personality is so big, as is his motivation and drive. My favorite part was about his early life before his TV show. I think the beginning of the book was better than the end. It was excellent to read about how he became successful over the years and the story of his relationship with his wife. It was truly a story of a self made man, who is charming, motivated and who had a little luck. The last part of the book he’s giving advice on how to flip cars, and he kind of came off as bragging about how great he is. I wish he could have been a little more humble. He has an excellent success story, but he ended up sounded a little more self absorbed than I had expected. I did enjoy the peek into his early life/career, and learning more about Aaron. But, the book could have wrapped up before he started trying to train the amateur car flipper to be like him.
