This book is packed with loads of useful bits from all of the latest Dragons. It gives a quick background to each person and how they have got to where they are today. Then each Dragons gives their key tips to being successful in business, but also in your general life or work life. It's not just for entrepreneurs as I found some of the words of wisdom things that are just generally good to know. Each Dragons gives different information so it's not repetitive and it's the kind of book that took me about an hour and a half to read but I would never get rid of as I could happily pick it up again in a few months to refresh my memory.

It is quite inspiring and energising and really make you realises that all the Dragons in the Den came from very normal backgrounds and that you can achieve anything if you put you mind to it and get a little encouragement.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dragon Quick Read 31 Dec 2009
A great, to the point, snappy little read which is relevant to all. It provides good advice with motivational aspects in relation to business. Straightforward and easy to read without being too basic. It also contains larger print text. The book, as you would expect, has sound, straight talking advice and suggestions from all the Dragons

5.0 out of 5 stars Short and sweet 1 Jun 2010

Very short book - easy to read in under an hour by anyone's standards.

Although it does have a few nuggets of business related information that are worth a read. Each dragon has only a few pages in huge-type but it is definately worth a couple of quid.
