あらすじ・解説

Has your life been conscripted by an economic religion?

Learn how to free yourself and your life through the power of unscripted entrepreneurship.

Grab your front-row seat in the story of a lifetime. Witness how one family escapes the rat race - the world's economic religion - and how you can too.

By all appearances, Jeff and Samantha Trotman are living the American dream. But behind the white picket fence, they endure an American nightmare. With little time for each other, a pile of debt, and Ferrari taste on a Ford budget, the ruse of affluence is killing them. Two respectable jobs and a lovely suburban house paint a pretty picture, but behind the ink is a broken marriage rife with meaningless work and dead dreams. And now, with an unplanned pregnancy, they’re facing a mid-life crisis 20 years early.

With little time and looming bankruptcy, the Trotmans are forced to face the red-pill truth they long denied: They were living, but they weren’t alive. Determined to resurrect their life and their marriage, the Trotmans plot a rat-race escape - only to find themselves more thickly in it. As tensions rise and hope fades, follow along step-by-step as the Trotmans pivot to a new strategy and a new career: starting a business as entrepreneurs. While they navigate their journey, you’ll learn 120 wealth-building strategies and principles that your mainstream financial guru won’t dare reveal - actionable concepts that will help you profit your way into the unscripted one percent, an emerging economic class of entrepreneurs who enjoy a lifetime of freedom emancipated from miserly living and Wall Street's "save, pray, and wait" paradigm. 

Discover how one family escapes the wage-slaving grind and wins a lifetime of financial freedom, leaving behind the tyranny of meaningless jobs and mediocre living - and how you can do the same. Not in 50 years, but five or 10.

Mostly recycled material.

The fictional story is a good case study, but most of the material is covered in the first unscripted book and the millionaire fastlane. It is also better structured in those prior books.

The story also makes frequent use of the tired trope of the bumbling stupid husband that would be lost without his clever wife.

The author went vegan, and like most vegans, he preaches his veganism at every turn like a gospel, also making health and environmental factoids that have long been debunked as if they were facts.

The business concepts are solid, but you’ll benefit more buying the first unscripted book.

More of the same

I'm a huge fan of MJ. That being said, I don't understand why he felt the need to write a third book that added absolutely nothing new to his message.
The horrible storytelling with the fictional couple only made it worse.

Read his previous books and you will be fine. Absolutely do not recommend.

Preachy/mostly recycled.

The actual story in the book was ok until about half way when it became just preachy garbage championing veganism. The actual business side of the book was mostly recycled from his earlier titles. I find it strange that DeMarco would alienate his audience like this considering he isn't specifically targeting vegan audiences and doing so ruins his value skew and limits his customers.

Personally this book has little relative value, especially compared to DeMarco earlier work.

DeMarco is Maturing

I’ve read all DeMarco’s books, and they are life changing. He has definitely changed in this book, and though the other books a hinge upon a similar topic, this one also does justice to his brand. All his books are strong in different ways, similar to Star Wars episodes 1-3 or Star Wars episodes 4-6. If you read any of his books, you know what I mean. The man knows how to write, and I am so glad he did not commit suicide. God bless you, Mr. DeMarco.

Better than 5 stars

Another masterpiece by MJ Demarco. This is one of the best personal finance/entrepreneurial books I've read in a while. MJ is probably one of the few people in personal finance who will actually tell you the truth about what it takes to build and grow wealth. The storytelling is good and the MJ's "tell it like it is" style of writing makes for an excellent listen. Do yourself a favor and buy this book, read it, and then put his advice into practice.

Eye-opening

DeMarco does a great job weaving fiction into multiple life lessons. I started the book as one of several books to prepare for a career change and finished it with a new perspective about what I need to do to get out of “the rat race” while I’m still young enough to enjoy it. I got more than I expected out of this one! I recommend it to anyone who has an interest in entrepreneurship and financial freedom.

Read it and weep (into cashmoney probably)

Even better as an audiobook - the slightly Winnie-The-Pooh-esque narrator on the chunky chapters about the core mindset and methodology makes for pleasent listening, and MJ DeMarco's passionate delivery of the parallel novel, a practical implementation (or not) of the techniques, is a welcome and interesting double-whammy of knowledge transfer.

Gift this amazing book to everybody you know and watch their journey with interest over the years as they don't bother to read it, lol.

This is now my only desert-island book (sorry 'Unscripted' you're out -- this has better structure and deeper ideas).

Brilliant

Brilliant execution and application of the ingredients needed to break away from the rat race.in every book there’s a hidden gem..and for me,there were many gems but my biggest one was the reminder that you are living your dream when you stick to your goals and execute your plans..not when you are in bed sleeping..

Oversimplified fictional story

It's my third book from MJ. As usual like in all fantasy stories this one has happy ending. After unscripted which in my opinion is the best my expectations were much higher.
The book was ok.

I love the DeMarco books and this is right up there. Great message and a great way of telling it with the theory and the practical example of the couple looking to exit the Rat Race. A great read and highly recommended

Do as I do, 👌

Having listened Millionaire fastlane and Unscripted, I was looking forward to this book!
MJ is a master story writer. And I absolutely love his cut-to-the-chase attitude as he gives a blow by blow, step by step account of exactly how to be free from financial worry.
I believed the do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do gurus for far too long. no more!!

Skip the fiction parts

I had to skip the fiction parts of the book. Total cringe. If I hadn't been able to skip them I would've returned the book for a refund.
Basically, the story is a couple having financial and relationship issues. They find MJ DeMarco's books, follow his advice and turn things around.
I'm guessing they were successful, but I had to start skipping these chapters because they were causing me internal pain.

Both MJ and the other narrator are good.
MJ was doing the non-fiction parts and as ever, they're enlightening and very good. He still does those voices which make it sound like he's having a conversation with Fozzy Bear though.

Great lessons, great delivery.

Full disclosure: I’m a huge MJ fan.

If you’ve read his other work, this book has similar advice with more up-to-date content, and mixes business advice with a fictional story of a struggling couple escaping their 9-5. The story felt like watching a movie with score 6.8 on IMDB, solid line with gut wrenching moments, but nothing ground-breaking. Between each story chapter, Demarco delivers his trademark tough love advice as entertaining as ever.

If you’ve never read a Demarco’s book, he spits hard truths and exposes lies told us by media, parents, teachers and Wall Street for their gain. I was a happy index fund investor, financial independence follower. I remember the exact moment when MJ introduced the idea of Controlled Unlimited Leverage, the CENTS commandments, which is the opposite of advice found on most personal finance books, the old “work, save, invest wisely, avoid debt, retire”. Demarco “cursed” my life to a path of freedom via creating a business system that scales having you in control.

Thanks MJ!

My new favourite book!

For anyone struggling to get out of the rat race, this book is for you. The last time I was this into a book was MJ Demarco's first book, but this one has topped it I think. Perfect timing for me as I'm 4 months into my side business that I'm turning into my main source of income. There are tonnes of strategies that really make sense. Some you already know that it helps reinforce, and some that open your eyes.
I loved the interlacing of fiction and factual strategy, illustrating a couple attempting to break out of the rat race alongside the strategies he explains along the way. And I'm really glad MJ narrated the strategy sections himself again.
I enjoyed it so much that I was disappointed it ended, but it really fired me up and has pointed me in the right direction again. Once you read MJ's books, there's no going back...

Nothing new here

Just regurgitating the same message that has been told a million times before. If you have read other finance books you have read this one. Another who is coining all the new phrases and system. But it nothing new just the same old advice repackaged

Hey MJ, Nice Book. (But my book is BETTER!)

Guys please checkout my excellent book called "The Treasure Map Checklist." By Justin Allen - Now Available on Kindle.

I'm a big fan of MJ DeMarco and have highly recommend his first book "The Millionaire Fastlane" in my book, but being very honest I am very disappointed with this book called "Unscripted: The Great Rat-Race Escape."

And well, it could of been much better. It's way too long winded, and repeats alot of the content from MJ's other books. Would of prefered all new concepts and the book to be more similar to "The Millionaire Fastlane" type of story line. Still worth checking out if your a big MJ DeMarco fan. But it's MJ's worst book and after reading it belongs at the bottom of a bird cage.

Ps. The 5 star reviews about this book are mostly fake and I recommend to read the bad reviews.
