Hands down, one of the most inspirational books I've ever read. After pulling an all-nighter this morning/last night the book is complete. It really taught me how to find the right mindset and gain the most out of the education I've received, not at school; but from everything I've learned on the computer. I'd really like to thank Robert and Amy for this. The book has given me quite the motivation do find what I really do love. Thank you so much!
Best money I've ever spent! This truly is an amazing book. The writing style of the book made it easy to read and I flew through it. I feel it was a good length and packed a ton of useful information. Not to mention you're paying for an exclusive forum membership. The fact that it costs money to access this forum means we will most likely have a better user experience as opposed to a forum anyone can join for free.
The book has also motivated me to go ahead and start on my project rather than waiting till I "know" everything. Considering I have lots of the skills I need already I might as well start work. Because like Razzi it very well could take me a year to get it up and running.
I am going to recommend this book to anyone who I think could benefit from it. I really do believe it is worth every penny.
I think you guys have done a fantastic job and I am very glad to be a part of far from it.
I got to admit I was skeptical about this book at first. After reading it, I really blew my mind away. This book is a foundation, the so called “HOLY GRAIL” of what peoples mindset should be. With this book you learn about so many flaws that society has. To be honest, I graduated from a Bachelors of Science in Business Management a year and a half ago and so far I have tried all my willpower to get in to the “Corporate Ladder”, and it shows me that having a degree doesn’t guaranteed you to have a stable job. With this book you learn about what “society” is doing wrong and that “society” is flawed. Far From It has showed me the process of “overnight success”. This book also showed me that the internet has so much potential and I have neglected that (which is basically my fault).
Thank you Robert and Amy for this eye opener of a book. You have showed me and motivated me to do something different. You drive me to be different from the norm of society. This book makes me wake up in the morning and do something unique. The quotes within the book keeps my motivation stronger and stronger by the day. I had a mindset but have nothing to show.
For some reason this is like a sign to take it to the next step. Thank you again for this eye opener.
Congrats on the launch, I picked up the book the night of the launch and read it any chance I get. I'm loving the advice so far; it's nowhere near an ornamented take on a life born of luxury, but rather how any individual, with the right attitude and motivation (along with other elements) can make a fortune. I particularly enjoyed the part about an "overnight success." I couldn't agree more and recommend this book to every single one of my peers.
I'm fortunate enough to have been part of your vast group of supporters and one day, colleagues, that you've bestowed with a gift to the community. You're book was a bargain and I want to thank you both for taking the time to compile your experiences and mindsets that make you Far From It and reaffirm in us that we, ourselves are not nearly that Far From what we're striving for.
I just finished reading my first book I have ever read. I know its crazy that I am 18 and haven't finished a book, but this wasn't one of those fictional ones about vampires, it was a really inspirational and motivational book that has given me a new thinking pathway and so many new ideas to succeed in life without having to become a sheep and follow society. If your are interested in doing your own thing in life and not wasting your life working 9-5 every day read Far From It - it's worth every cent I paid!
One day I was surfing YouTube, looking at movies. Stumbled on Robert's channel and then saw a movie with Amy getting her Lambo. I was really intrigued (car has served his purpose I guess Amy). A week or so later "Far From It" came out. Bought it right away as well Infinite Prosperity membership. Swallowed it in a day. It took some time to digest it and put everything into perspective. It gave me completely new perspective on life. Different path. Somehow it made me so happy and positive that I was smiling all the time (I still am). Its like I'm starting my 2nd life all over again but on different rules. I am reading 4 hour work week right now - good follow up book that goes well with that idea you have planted in my mind. I am changing the way I live and you guys are the starting catalyst. For that I am thanking you from the bottom of my heart. You are a true blessing in this world.
I must say, Robert certainly is the master of suspense. I have been on the edge of my seat for weeks waiting for this release and It finally came around. I could not be happier, I am so happy you talked about the Law of Attraction.
I honestly changed my entire mindset after reading the book, the second I stopped reading I realized what you were telling me made sense, it gave me that extra drive to continue the projects I have started.
You are changing peoples lives, thanks for that!
Just finished the ebook. Just wanted to say that I really enjoyed it and found it to be a quick and easy read (extremely well written and free flowing). I appreciate the fact that you guys took the time to write it and I agree with your stance on mindset. I've been working on mindset development for the past couple years and I hadn't heard of The Secret until you guys talked about it. I actually started reading it after hearing about it on one of your FB posts and have found it to be in sync with what I've been doing. It puts an explanation to what has been happening in my life, awesomely enough.
Once again thanks and I look forward to talking to everyone more!
I just finished the book after buying it last night.
All I can say is oh my gawd. You guys have put so many new ideas into my head and got me excited to learn to do what I want to do (web programming, similar to Robert) and I have so many ideas I'm going to have to buy a notebook and write them all down before I forget haha.
Also, I love the way the book was written; informal style, easy to read font, and the organization of paragraphs with headers. Books with the tiniest font and letters from corner to corner discourage me, I'm not sure why. I guess I don't have the patience to read that much. I'm more of a hands on guy, and learn from watching, and that's because of my hearing loss. I don't think I mentioned it in my intro post, but it's on my profile. I was born with a hearing loss, but I do have hearing aids to assist. The aids no where makes my hearing perfect. I could talk about this all day but this thread isn't for that topic, so ask me via private message if you want more info.
I've always been interested in learning to code, but I needed some motivation to get started on learning to code and starting projects. I actually took a after school class that my school offered with the advertisement "Want to create a smartphone app? Or a video game?" or something like that. I thought I would be learning real coding here like Java or C+. But I didn't I just learned the extreme basics of coding such as If/then, loop, if else, while, and so on. It wasn't enough for me and I was disappointed. I guess that means I should start self education! Robert mentioned in the book that he found Ruby on Rails the easiest so that's where I am going to start!
Thanks for the good kick in the ass, Robert and Amy!
P.S. When I achieve my dream of a super car, can I get Far From It stickers to put on it?
I love the fact that Robert & Amy didn't oversell the book. They promised that most (if not all) of your questions will be answered and thats exactly what the book did. I love that each topic is addressed in its own little chapter and its short, to-the-point and simple. If someone wants to be told like it is minus all the bullshit and fake expectations a lot of other material gives, this is the book I'd recommend to them.
I have read the book and what a breath of fresh air. Some great motivational info and key points that I can honestly say would have saved me a lot of time effort and money if it had have been around before I went through a Business Degree. It has helped me refocus and pivot my ideas where necessary (and I thought I had seen it all having run a number of small businesses- but this has been a really big help). It also helps as a personal check list to either adjust and look at things from a different angle or consolidate if things are going well.
To sum it up... Great Job!
Just finished reading the book. My ideals have only been restated by a couple I know is extremely successful. Thanks for all the great insights Rob, and Amy. You both have some extremely inspiring stories. As I read the section that mentioned who your role models and inspirations were, I kept thinking about the two of you. Both of you are two of the people I look upon most on the planet. Not only are you willing to share your success with the world, but you are both extremely humble and generous people, meeting you was one of the most awesome experiences. Thanks for everything you guys :-)
The book is stunning! Congratulations on going public Robert & Amy. Even though I am pretty exhausted after the day, I didn't yawn even once while reading it. It has a great fresh approach, especially for the younger generation willing to believe and achieve.
Once again huge congrats to both of you!
Time to rock!
I just want to say that I LOVED this book! You have a very inspiring story, Robert!
This book is honestly the best. I really don't buy books (especially eBooks) if I think it would be a waste of time and this book, honestly was extremely worth the time reading. When I bought it yesterday I read it like my life depended on it because it was so inspiring and then a few hours later when I finished it, I had got mad because once you read something you really love, you wish it never ends (at least to me that's how I felt.) Thank you Robert and Amy for the fantastic book and I'll surely recommend it to my friends.
I'm in somewhat the same boat as Amy told in her story. Currently working as a Personal Banker for a large Australia / New Zealand bank and I'm seen to be 'making it' in the society. However I could be much happier than I currently am in my work.
I'm thoroughly looking forward to IP launching to give me some in-sight into the trading world. This sounds far more attractive to me than sitting in front of a desk serving customers for 8 hours a day. I'd love to control my own 'destiny'. I no longer want my salary and working hours to be dictated by someone else.
Purchased the book at about 10PM New Zealand time, went out to the gym while leaving my iPad to sync and found myself driving back within 30 minutes (some workout..yeah right) - I wanted to get home and stuck into the book ASAP.
Managed to have it read by 12.30PM. It was incredibly interesting to read your story and get away from the negativity of the YouTube communities view on how you came into your success.
It's a book I'll read time and time again to adapt certain aspects to my current life.
Really, really enjoyed it guys. Thanks for the effort and long nights you've both put into it. It's really made an impact with me.
I really enjoyed it, it's an easy read but packed with inspiration and some great insight into where Robert & Amy came from and the mindset needed to be successful. The world needs more people who think like them and execute.
Looking forward to being active on the forum!
I simply can't comprehend how much, that book just changed my life. I just turned 16 and have no plans on working a job, or having a boss. I am simply to stubborn and know better than that. I honestly cannot thank you two enough for putting out your time to make "Far From It". Reading Amy's story I was astonished at how much I could relate.. I plan on making profit off sites such as Ebay and Kijiji, and really plan on being a part of Infinite Prosperity. I have always been driven to make money, since I was 11 I have worked at a golf course part time and now with the knowledge I have just gained through this book, and plan on gaining through this forum, see no reason for me not to start making substantially more money from my computer at the comfort of my own home. My Mother is completely against this just as the book suggests many people, friends, and family will be. I know that I will probably read the book tomorrow again just because of the simple fact that this has been the first time reading a book seemed extremely interesting and captivating let alone attention grabbing at all. You two have done an amazing job on all of this, and I want to make it incredibly clear to both of you, that you haven't only changed my life.. You have changed my mindset toward many things. Pff, and to think people actually expected you to give this book away for free... Best 50 bucks anyone can possibly spend. Thank you.
I enjoyed the read throughout. Very detailed and specific to the topic discussed. Satisfied? Most Definitely. Intrigued? Absolutely. Want More? Well... YES. That's why we've got the forum! So excited.
This morning I woke up, got on Facebook like a normal college kid and saw that Far From It was released. I couldn't resist reading it due to I have always wanted to believe I could work for myself and myself alone, and wanted to see a prime example. After reading it all at once I have to say it was something I seriously needed.
I am so tired of being around negative people, and have always wondered if that was actually affecting the way I think. Well....it was. After reading the book and looking back on a few of my years in college the book had it spot on, but also showed me how to fix the problem. It is kind of like growing up in middle and high school. I was bullied a lot, and for some reason it effected me. I let it get to me. Nowadays you look at a YouTube troll and just smirk and realize that in the end they should do nothing to effect how you feel or think. In a nutshell, all I can say is thank you Robert and Amy. I hope that one day I will be driving a lambo with you guys with enough motivation.
From seeing a Gallardo in Los Angeles too making me to look up videos of Gallardo's, too seeing videos of Robert's awesome car collection then making him my role model. A lot can happen from seeing a single exotic car on the street.
Far From It was a book I needed to read to prove I wasn't insane for thinking outside the box. Robert and Amy both influenced me more then anyone else has in my life. I think I was more excited about this book release then getting my first bicycle!
My Review: If your looking for inspiration then look no further, growing up I had the poster of the Lamborghini on my wall not knowing what kind of people drove these cars. Sure enough a successful entrepreneur named Robert Himler had his own at the age of 18! I loved both life stories from Amy and Robert, one that can some how relate to yours! I ended up reading the book the night I bought it because it was addictive to read. Story after story, advise after advise, this book has words that can change your life.
Thank you Robert and Amy for opening doors in my life i would have never have opened if it wasn't for you two.
Being a delivery person working 30 hour weeks, it's needless to say buying a book for $47 is quite the investment for me. After purchasing the book, I recalled seeing a few points that I've seen online as well. However, something about the way it was written just made it all not only "click", but also "sink in". The day after I read this book I had an idea that not only has the potential to rake in millions, but also allow me to do something I've always enjoyed doing. Needless to say it's probably the best $47 I've ever spent.
