I read this guy's book on internet marketing. I don't know how much of his spiel is bullshit, but he comes off as pretty sincere despite being a born carny. I appreciate that he's not selling a get-rich-quick scheme. He's selling get-moderately-comfortable, if you can find something you're really talented at and work your balls off at it.
If nothing else it's a lot of fun to watch him give his spiel. He posts videos at his site here.
