5.0 out of 5 stars Want to grow your business? Then this is the Nuts! 15 April 2010
What on earth have hazelnuts, walnuts and coconuts got to do with business? Well they are just one of the many analogies that Iain Whyte uses in his excellent book: Life, Business & Speedboats. His common sense, straight talking approach to business. delivers exactly any busy business owner needs - practical suggestions to move your business forward that are straight to the point and cut out the waffle and unecessary pages that many business books contain. I'd highly recommend this to anybody serious about growing their business.

Iain Whyte is so entertaining on stage and provides straightforward, matter of fact, usable advice for business owners to develop their business. This book takes that advice and delivers it in just the same simple and yet very valuable manner that you would be foolish to ignore it. If you are serious about getting more business and want to know how to do it simply and efficiently then Life, Business and Speedboats is a must read for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Running a business? Then read this! 2 Jan 2014
This is a great little book, easy to read and to action. Business doesn't have to be complicated. Iain is a very down to earth man and a great coach and speaker, once you have read his book you will realise that you know most of what you should be doing, you just stopped doing it! The simple things in life allow us to be successful, we just don't do enough of them. Thanks Iain, a great read - just started reading it yet again to get back on track!

This book genuinely changed the way that I operate within my business. It is just the right size to be able to be read in one session or in bite size chunks.Read it and benefit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Woking document for success 13 Aug 2013
If you want a practical work method for success in building better business relationships, for mutual benefit and to provoke you into thinking differently then this is the read for you. I'd recommend you take it chapter by chapter, make notes in the book as you go, and take some time to apply / practice the things you learn before moving onto the next section. A book that you can and should re read and re apply for continuous benefit.
