Summary – In The In-Between, Mahmoud Farraj talks about the drive to do your best, positive thinking, the importance of networking and mentorship, and why passion is so critical.

Thoughts:

This guys is on his way to success. He is on the road to accomplishing his dreams. Why do I think that is so important in a book? Because he is not just spewing out what he had read on the internet to sell a book. He lives and breathes this stuff.

No, Mahmoud Farraj has not “made it” yet. He can’t be a financially independent overnight. It takes some time. But what he has learned can be very helpful to others.

What I like most about this book is the colorful pictures he paints the reader. I also found a few one-liners that I thought were pretty funny. (I’m sure he didn’t mean for them to be hilarious, but I sure did laugh.)

My favorite part of the book was about weighing the pros before the cons for a positive mindset. When the professor gives him an assignment, he sees a means to make his writing better. When he walks outside of his apartment, he sees the beautiful sky, homes with happy families within, and a piece of art on the concrete wall instead of the dead end sign, garbage, and graffiti:

Mahmoud Farraj also uses the movie Forrest Gump in this example! Thanks to being shot in the buttox, Forrest gets free ice cream. Love it!


Here are a few of my other favorite lines:

“If you have a passion for growing apples and oranges, become the best apples and oranges grower the world has ever seen.”
“If your passion is to take selfies, I want you to take the best selfies anyone has ever taken. Kim Kardashian recently published a book of selfies and made millions. Why haven’t you done that?”
By having a mentor,  “They can guide you the right way so you aren’t wielding a paper airplane in a bazooka battle.”

I think this ebook is a good read because of Mahmoud Farraj passion. Reading this can give you a mood booster when you’re down and a good reminder of the mindset it takes to be successful. It can also be good for a friend who is just getting their feet wet and looking for some educational material on key ideas and themes of a self-help success book; it is short enough that it can be good starter material.

Okay, now for a two quick things I wish would be different:

  • He used some broad brushstrokes to categorize everyone, like talking about the “real world,” and using words like always and nobody cares.
  • There were also a few punctuation errors.

That is all! (See what I did there? I talked about all the pros before the cons. I’d say the pros definitely out weigh the cons!)

Last Words:

As a short read, I recommend this eBook 🙂
