** THE MILLIONAIRE FASTLANE: NOW AN INTERNATIONAL BEST-SELLER!
** TRANSLATED IN OVER 15 LANGUAGES WORLDWIDE
Is the financial plan of mediocrity -- a dream-stealing, soul-sucking dogma known as "The Slowlane" your plan for creating wealth? You know how it goes; it sounds like this: "Go to school, get a good job, save 10% of your paycheck, buy a used car, cancel the movie channels, quit drinking expensive Starbucks lattes, save and penny-pinch your life away, trust your life-savings to Wall Street, preferably a low cost indexed-fund, and then one day, when you are oh, say, 65 years old, you can retire rich."
The mainstream financial gurus have sold you blindly down the river to a great financial gamble: You've been hoodwinked to believe that wealth can be created by recklessly trusting in the uncontrollable and unpredictable markets: the stock market, the job market, and the housing market. This impotent financial gamble dubiously promises wealth in a wheelchair -- sacrifice your youth for a financial plan that reaps dividends in life's twilight.
Accept the Slowlane as your blueprint for wealth and your financial future will drift carelessly on a sailboat of HOPE: HOPE you can find 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 for your family's financial plan?
Drive the Slowlane and life will deteriorate into a miserable exhibition about what you cannot do, versus what you can. For those who don't want a lifetime subscription to mediocrity and a lottery-sized chance of elderly riches, there is an alternative; an expressway to extraordinary wealth that can burn a trail to financial independence faster than any road out there.
- Why jobs, 401(k)s, indexed-funds, Wall Street, and 40-years of mindless frugality will never make you rich young.
- Why most entrepreneurs fail and how to immediately put the odds in your favor.
- The real law of wealth: Leverage this and wealth has no choice but to be magnetized to you.
- The leading cause of poorness: Change this and you change everything.
- How the rich really get rich - and no, it has nothing to do with a paycheck or a 401K match.
- Why the guru's grand deity - compound interest - is an impotent wealth accelerator.
- Why the guru myths of "do what you love" and "follow your passion" will most likely keep you poor, not rich.
- And 250+ more poverty busting distinctions.

About the Author
Former founder and CEO of Limos.com, multimillionaire entrepreneur, author, and the revolutionary "get rich slow" anti-guru, MJ DeMarco not long ago lived with his mother, mopped floors, and sought the dream like so many others-the dream to live free from bosses, free from 9-to-5 jobs and alarm clocks, and free from a life of mediocrity. Through rigorous years of self-study, countless errors and failures, MJ cracked the code to wealth and shockingly discovered that it had nothing to do with jobs, 401(k)s, mutual funds, or penny-pinching your life away for forty years. By rejecting society's preordained "settle-for-less" financial roadmap, MJ was able to retire young-in his thirties-without sacrificing lifestyle. (Yes, he drinks Starbucks coffee, drives exotic cars, and hasn't canceled the movie channels.) He lives in beautiful Phoenix, Arizona, and enjoys traveling, dining, writing, softball, fitness, working out, and obviously has a fanatical passion for the Lamborghini marquee.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Nothing in the book is really new, but MJ does add more commentary to idea that college should produce an roi. If u are doing something now, the book might help u refine a bit more. If you want to get going, then a nice kick in the pants. For some, might make you mad. But deserving of 5 stars for sure.
I bought the ebook a few weeks ago and finished it in 3 days. I actually have read a bit too many get rich books, and this is by far the best. It doesn't tell you to buy real estate, think positive, use compound interest rates etc. It actually goes to the important elements that we need to do to be in the fastlane. Buy it and read it. I even bought the paperback (autographed by author) after reading the ebook. I'm now working hard to build a business that will help me achieve my goals. This book has helped me see what went wrong in my last venture.
Just finished reading the Millionaire Fastlane and am happy with the purchase. I've read quite a few business/marketing books, so many of the points made in this book were not new concepts for me. Despite that, I did find more than a few hidden jewels that will require me to refer to this book for future reference. The author is easily relatable and lays out the major steps for how he attained his wealth. No formulas for instant millionaires here, but he does share solid advice for accelerating your path to wealth. Overall, I feel like I am walking away with the ability to make more sound decisions regarding my business and financial decisions. Cons: Many of the examples were redundant and could have been cut out. Too many references to current day technologies that will quickly date this book. Acronyms...especially the long one at the end. Final Verdict: You must read this book if you are in business, considering starting a business, or are just sick and tired of working the 9-5.
This book gives you an insight in how truly easy it is to live in the fastlane. All it takes is a choice, a solid plan of execution and passion. Hold on tight!
