    This is a great book that shows self made billionaires stories and explains the principles of extreme business success. Every entrepreneur should read this unique book.All the billionaires in this book started with zero and achieved great successes with their businesses. Reading this gave me a great value and overview of how billionaires think and act. I totally recommend!

But even if you're like me, and have already started your business, get this book and read to it over and over.. "The Billion Dollar Secret" can make the difference between success and failure, great success and just getting by :)

    Fantastic book. It allows breaking stereotypes, even those that have been theoretically broken. I recommend it to anyone who wants to look into the mind of those who achieve the greatest business successes in the world.

    If you ever thought, is it possible for a struggling, hardship prone, having no influential or rich family background individual to become super-successful or super-rich? The answer is YES. This book has no speck of fictional words but pure experience from real-life living entrepreneurs themselves, the legends. It's a MUST READ for all inspirational / motivational / entrepreneurial / real - life success story book lovers.

    Mind-blowingly good book ! The interviews are boiled down to the principles of success and to the very facts one needs to realise to be able to step up their game. Regardless of where you at with realising your ideas and dreams, this book will be a great source of knowledge and inspiration for you.

    Great principles and going beyond what's taught in business schools. As a beginner in business, I find it encouraging and thought provoking. So far, the book is jam-packed with insight and knowledge about the things that actually help us become successful (not just monetary success). The stories are very inspiring and go beyond what can be seen on media and written by Forbes etc. so you are learning something new page by page.

    Since I read Think and Grow Rich I have not been so affected by a book until now. The Billion Dollar Secret includes interviews with 21 self-made billionaires, and includes practical steps, strategies and mindsets for you to take to lead a more successful and happy life.

The practical advice and specific steps should be taught in every University and I can't wait to implement this advice in a systematic way. This isn't advice only for people who want to be billionaires, it's advice from the most successful business-people in the world for anyone who wants to generate more success in their lives. Highly recommended!

    Absolutely loved the book! I find it very interesting in terms of personal stories and examples. The author has structured the book very well on different topics and provided examples from interviews. This is not a standard interview-based book which makes it engaging and easy to read. Looking for inspiration and having huge aspirations? This books is a perfect start for those who feel like a Ferrari, can "drive" their life on a high speed and for those who do not see sky as the limit. Well done Absolutely loved the book!

    I am an experienced entrepreneur looking beyond the wisdom of millionaires. "The Billion Dollar Secret" caught my attention on NetGalley as it compiles first-hand wisdom of BILLIONAIRES, in contrast to all the books about how millionaires think. The author managed to convince 20+ self-made billionaires to work together on this book, including five World Entrepreneurs of different Years (out of 8 billionaire World Entrepreneurs alive!). This is the Champions League of business. I never thought an I am an experienced entrepreneur looking beyond the wisdom of millionaires.

The author managed to convince 20+ self-made billionaires to work together on this book, including five World Entrepreneurs of different Years (out of 8 billionaire World Entrepreneurs alive!). This is the Champions League of business. I never thought anything like this would be possible and I have never seen a book on this heavy-weight level before.I am not a fast reader, especially in English. I need time to digest and enjoy a book, but this page-turner read really quickly, probably due to easy language and many stories, and content that absorbed me completely. The book is packed with well organized thought patterns, behaviors, attitudes of billionaires and backed with surprising examples, first-hand quotes and inspiring stories. It feels like you were sitting at the table with the author and talking to world's best entrepreneurs, and they were telling you their secrets as if you were friends. I was astonished how exciting business careers of these business tycoons were. You learn them from their human side, their minds, their hears, their souls. It is kind of insight view of a billionaire mind. You learn what make billionaires tick on a personal level. You learn to understand them emotionally and you can follow these thoughts and emotions to show corresponding behavior in your business.It something like Secrets of the Millionaire Mind: Mastering the Inner Game of Wealth but on a billionaire level. Or like Think and Grow Rich: The Master Mind Volume for 21st century, but on a global level and with tangible psychology and no esotericism. If you liked any of these two, you will love this one.The quality and weight of knowledge and business experience gathered in this book is sensational. I don't know any other book with this much entrepreneurial excellence and wisdom condensed on 300+ pages.I am pretty excited to apply what I have learned here in my life and business.The only drawback: The title. IMHO the book should be called "The Billion Dollar Mindset".

What makes them so successful over such a long time and what they will like to share with all young minds around the world who will stumble upon this book..Principles discussed are common but when endorsed by billionaires they become more clear and solid..Best part of the book is its simplicity. There is no boring data or research or repetition. Book is structured into clearcut chapters..Author has selected big billionaires and then he has scrutinized their common qualities and then he has mixed them to produce informative and readable content..Although I would have liked different millionaires featured in different chapters instead of spread over all chapters. But still book structuring makes sense..life stories of billionaires is inspring and relevent practical wisdom is shared..I liked and learnt a lot about all the personalities covered in the book..All aspects of a winner personality are discussed which are useful for reader even if you don't want to learn business..Definitely recommend as a practical guide for any young mind to get a peek into the minds of mighty and successful..Thanks netgalley and author for review copy.

The surprising thing for me was to discover how much they loved their work - they truly believed that they were delivering solutions to real problems in the world. They loved the process and many viewed their business as a fun game they intended to win!No wonder they are never complacent or willing to settle for second best!The main takeaways from a business and start-up point of view are nothing new, but reading the personal motivations and drivers of these individuals is new and rare. This book is clearly the result of years of investigation by the author.

    A book worth reading. This book written by Mr. Badziag, expresses how much potential one has and to realise the same one has to be totally invested. The way the journey of these self made people is described in the boom is truly amazing! This book is a must read. It'll fill you with motivation and energy to follow your mind.
