How to Become a Billionaire
Framing John Delorean: Money, power, politics, drugs, scandal, and fast cars. Discover the untold story of the controversial automaker’s meteoric rise and shocking fall.
As I was writing the preceding post about the other John DeLorean movie, Driven, I stumbled across this second film. Personally, I think Lee Pace was a better choice for the lead than Baldwin since both DeLorean and Pace were/are tall and slim, 6’4″ and 6’5″ respectively, whereas Baldwin is too short and heavyset for the role.
Looking forward to watching this tonight.
Even if you don’t know who John DeLorean was, you probably know his famous car used for time travel in the Back to the Future movies. After leaving GM where he had been a senior officer, he started his own company, DeLorean Motors, to build and sell the DeLorean sports car. The company quickly found itself in a cash flow crunch, and as legend has it, John attempted to raise $30 million by doing a coke deal. The big question is did he come up with the idea or was he the victim of an FBI sting operation? The jury found him not guilty.
There’s a recent film about DeLorean where Lee Pace, who bears an uncanny resemblance, plays him. This movie can be categorized as light comedy.
Here’s the trailer for Driven. I rate it a solid 6.5/10.

Martin Fridson the author of the billionaire book talks about what it takes to maximize your chances of achieving billionaire status. This is the 30,000 foot view of the topic. It covers the grand strategies. In contrast, The Tycoon Playbook course drills down into the nitty gritty details of starting from the bottom and working one’s way up.
This is a worthwhile video to watch if you’re interested in the subject.
The Tycoon Playbook opens up with the elite Special Air Service Regiment’s (SAS) famous motto:
Who Dares Wins!
These three words pretty much sum up the secret to success in both business and romance. Are you prepared to take smart calculated gambles?
The SAS were arguably the first true special forces of the 20th century and were instrumental in the creation of similar units such as Navy Seals, Green Berets, Delta Force, Russian Spetsnaz, etc. They initially operated in North Africa during the early days of WW II fighting against the German Afrika Korps and Italian Army.
One of my favorite YouTubers, LindyBeige, has just created a video about the unit’s creation and early days.
