    I have never read a business book that is this relatable. From the moment I picked up The Hunt, I couldn’t put it down. I have been using the tips and knowledge that Mr. Farbman provided and I can already see the changes making an impact.

    I am the type of person who loves goals and checking off items on my checklist. I never thought of myself as a hunter but after reading The Hunt I call myself a hunter! Farbman’s target and goal setting system helped me reevaluate how I check off my goals. Great read!

    I took away some usable takeaways that instantly had me controlling conversations I would have sat quiet in before. I also closed 2 deals last week using David Farbmans Fluid Execution or Real time Execution chapter and the one on leverage. This book was a total surprise and I listened to our CMO who recommended it and I am glad I did. Anyone who wants more out of life will gain from this book.

    This book presented an interesting way of looking at life and what you want. I'd never thought about hunting in any way other than toward animals, but his ideas on hunting in regard to one's professional and personal careers are quite accurate. I think this book would be a great book to give to a recent high school or college graduate.

    Throughout my career, MBA and undergraduate business programs I've been exposed to a library full of self-help books. I love the straight forward, honest approach that David Farbman takes in his writing, which is relatable to everyone from stay at home parents to Fortune 500 executives and countless life paths in between. His goal setting techniques have allowed me to "get above the trees" and prioritize what's truly important to ME, then lock in and execute. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking to take their life to the next level, in the board room, at home and in every facet of what they do.
