In his first book, Nothing to Lose, Blair shared the brutally honest story of how he went from being an at-risk youth, sleeping on a mattress on the floor of a shack, to a self made multi-millionaire by his early twenties. As both the book and his story became a national sensation, Blair realized it was time to share the next piece of the puzzle--a detailed road map on how you can reach financial freedom yourself.   Blair has battled extreme obstacles--growing fame, bad press, outrageous lawsuits, making and losing tens of millions of dollars (sometimes all in one day)--and still came out on top every time, and continued his mission to positively impact the lives of millions of people. Now he reveals how he did it; his personal formula for going from rock bottom to "rock star," and being the absolute best at what you do.   If you're serious about making the most of your life and you're ready to become the "rock star next door," instead of just looking up to them, this may be the most rewarding book you'll ever read.

    Excellent book packed with some great lessons learned from Ryan Blair. He first caught my attention on the School of Greatness podcast with Lewis Howes. This is a very quick read with some very useful advice that can be applied to anyone's life, even if you are not an aspiring entrepreneur.

    Was able to get the book before it launches October 4th. I highly recommend reading. One of the better and more meaningful business books I ever read.

    This is a fantastic, fast and relatable read. Not only does Ryan give insightful pointers about his experiences in business, he fully shares his successes and failures. I’m happy he was brave enough to show us his thorns (you’ll get the full meaning when you read the book). I have had setbacks, some successes and am embarking on another transition so this book was good timing. I think living a full life is experiencing the ebbs and flows of Rock Bottom and Rock Star moments. Besides as Ryan poin This is a fantastic, fast and relatable read.

Besides as Ryan points out it’s not what doesn’t kill you but rather what weakens you makes you stronger. He poses some challenging but not impossible questions in the book that will make you pause and take stock in what you’re doing. Well done!

    Interesting book about an interesting guy. I had never heard of Ryan Blair before reading this book and I don’t promote or indorse MLM companies like ViSalus so it’s hard to get through the book for that very reason. Other than Ryan talking about ViSalus what seemed every other sentence, the book was very interesting and gives you great insight on a young CEO’s journey.

    I barely could make it through this book. He barely skims the surface of the points he makes. Most of the stories and examples seem to far fetched and it's like he is bragging most of the time. Each chapter just repeats a message that has been said hundreds of times before by better speakers. I barely could make it through this book. He barely skims the surface of the points he makes.

    Stared off really good, after chapter 3 it became repetitive and lack specific content.

    I love hearing stories of how people have overcome struggle and defeat. Some great points in this book. The story about his mom had me in tears.

    Ok lessons but too self-aggrandizing for my liking.

    I read Ryan Blair's original book, Nothing to Lose, Everything to Gain a while back and enjoyed it, so picked up his latest, Rock Bottom to Rock Star. It did not disappoint. In his second book, Ryan teaches us all some of what he's learned through trial and error, so that we can all become "rock stars" in whatever we choose. Each chapter is a different tip, told in his very readable and down to earth tone and with anecdotes showing either how he learned this and/or applied it.

And although some of the lessons are more obvious than others, they're all valuable. Tips include knowing your superpower, working backwards, funding first, what weakens strengthens you, wrong type of success, and many others. A quick enjoyable read that I'd recommend for anyone interested in learning what it takes to become a business "rock star."

    I finished the book and took a few days to take it all in. After reading it, I thought about why the book had ended up in my hands. I have followed Ryan's journey for two years, after reading NTL and having my own Rock Bottom moments. It really helped me change my life for the better. It's because he always seems to find creative ways to overcome adversity. The book is rich and deep, it pulls you through every experience. I realized that the book meant a time for transformation, again. Ryan Blai I finished the book and took a few days to take it all in.

    If you're looking for a memoir, it's a great read, but I found the title a little misleading as I expected it to be more of a step-by-step "how to" book. He certainly lays out the pitfalls of entrepreneurship and how he overcame them, and it's a fast read. But, it sure didn't make me want to follow in his footsteps! Just depends what you are looking for. If you're looking for a memoir, it's a great read, but I found the title a little misleading as I expected it to be more of a step-by-step "how to" book.

    Some of the business aspects of this book weren't relevant to me and thus, sometimes harder chapters to get through. That said, Ryan is an incredibly inspiring person and having had the chance to meet him, know how kind and humble he truly is.

    I almost didn't finish this book because I thought it did not apply to me. I am so thankful I did! Ryan is open about his life and the lessons he learned. A great read for anyone with an entrepreneurial spirit or a need to overcome. I almost didn't finish this book because I thought it did not apply to me. I am so thankful I did!

    Excellent look inside the true roller coaster ride that being an entrepreneur really is and how Ryan managed the ups and downs (not just in business but also in personal life). A must have for every entrepreneurs library.

    Ryan Blair's lessons from the business school of hard knocks is quite compelling! I had never heard of him before reading this book. I appreciate his raw honesty in his stories. The story about his mother had me teary eyed. It's a good book, for business lessons, and for life lessons. Ryan Blair's lessons from the business school of hard knocks is quite compelling!
