Format: Paperback
A great book for any business owner. 201 ideas from successful entrepeneurs across the country. Each idea is between 1/2 to 1 1/2 pages long. This makes it easy reading and good for reference (mine is full of bookmarks). The format makes it easy to skip ideas that don't apply to you. This is a no-brainer for every entrepeneur. I bought 100 to give out as gifts!

I've been familiar with Jane's work for years on both Bloomberg and CNBC and well as other places. This book really puts the whole subject of small business into perspective and spells out the do's and don'ts...including an excellent resource section.

more like 201 statements about jane.
not very interesting unless you personallly know this woman as every "idea" is just a few pages on somebody that the author gave advice to. it gets extremely boring. i read the whole book and learnt nothing.

A Solid Effort! 16 Feb. 2001
By Rolf Dobelli - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Jane Applegate's book is an idea journal for the budding entrepreneur. No one business can use all these ideas, every business owner will be able to use a few of the ideas Applegate mentions. Some of her great ideas are specific to a single type of business. Other ideas sound fine, but deal with areas that are difficult for an entrepreneur to control. The book's big drawback is that it lacks an over-reaching strategy. It is a set of disconnected ideas, which makes it more useful as a brainstorming tool than as anything you would use as the basis of a business. It doesn't tell you how to create a marketing plan, but it gives you marketing ideas you can incorporate into the plan you develop. We at getAbstract.com recommend this book to owners of relatively new, small businesses who are hungry for a few ideas to move it further along. [Note: many of the ideas are specific to the United States.]

I think every small business owner should read this book -- full of excellent, and often basic (but overlooked) ideas and tips for making the most of your business.

Format: Paperback
Some of the ideas are a little off the wall, but for the most part, it is stuff you might be able to use...
