Book Review: Decoded by Jay-Z
The book in question is more or less how to gain success no matter what life may throw at you. Jay-Z in fact is quite similar to the entrepreneurial master Warren Buffet and they both have similar independent thinking patterns. Both of these guys ignore what others say about them and they take your own steps in life. You may be aware that while Warren Buffet’s mentor was his own father, similarly Jay-Z had a mentor in his sixth grade, known as Miss Lowden. Jay Z grew up in New York City, at the place where the J and the Z lines of the subway meet. He has defined the same thing that Warren Buffet has termed as “Discipline to not get caught up in the moment”.
Since there are many who doubt Jay Z’s stamina as an entrepreneur or a businessman, i advise you to take a look at the statistics. Jay-Z’s record sales statistics are very impressive, 11 back to back number one albums which is in itself a world record for the most number one albums by a solo artist. In addition, he has sold over 50 million copies of his albums over the world and won 10 Grammy Awards. The numbers show that he is one of the best musicians or promoter of music that there has ever been.
If you give this book a shot, then you will enjoy the read since it brings out one of the best businessman’s ideas, the way he looks at things is unique. The book is quite different from the normal day to day type biographies.
Decoded by Jay-Z looks into the mind of a truly fascinating character, if you are a fan of Jay-Z then this book delivers his career from beginning to end in a phenomenal manner.
