Big Magic

Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert

Paperback | Kindle | Audiobook

Overview

Elizabeth Gilbert is the author of Eat Pray Love, so if her name is familiar, that is why. This book Big Magic has the idea that ideas in general are really a gift given to you by the universe. Its up to you to acknowledge them and respond. To make those ideas become real. If you don’t they can leave you and go to someone else or just disappear forever. She dives into so many other aspects to being a creative person, ideas, and fear. It’s hard to put all of that into a short overview.

Bottom line

Read it. Any creative person, on any level, developers, writers, painters, creators, etc should read this. I know anyone that considers themselves as a creator, will get something from this book. Honestly, I think everyone can get something of value from this book. Its really good!

Dotcom Secrets

Dotcom Secrets by Russell Brunson

Paperback | Kindle

Overview

Russell dives into concepts and ideas on how he has built his businesses over the years. What works and what didn’t. He has come up with plenty of analogies that help make sense the overall process. He starts with value ladders and builds on to backend and frontend sales. Its a marketers hand book if anything.

Bottom line

Is it worth reading? Maybe. If you don’t have much experience reading marketing material, then this might be a good fit. For someone building funnels already and used to copy designed to convert readers, its kind of boring. I would say if you’re experienced in any way with online marketing, I just skim the last 50 pages. The other stuff is good but really, you could get the idea by just reading the last page of every chapter. I felt like this book could be summed up in about 50-75 pages.
