5.0 out of 5 stars Start Your Business 2013 8 Nov 2012
I had a great idea for a business but no business background or training and I got this book to guide me through the process.

Its really clear, informative, and comprehensive, with info on every step from checking your business plan through getting funding, setting up and getting publicity for your new business.

Because its completely up-to-date all the information on legal aspects of business and accounting is relevant- I've noticed a lot of other business books contain information that's no longer accurate- so you can use this book to take advantage of the current economy.

I also really liked the first hand experience of the writers and examples, particularly on areas I didn't have experience in.

Highly recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent start for a start up 1 Jan 2013
By Lucy
This is a practical guide for anyone thinking of starting their own business. At nearly 400 pages it covers all the key areas, and each chapter is clearly broken up into sections, so you can easily find the relevant information. The book is written in clear language without lots of jargon, so it's easy to get through. The case studies are helpful and inspiring. Definitely a great book to keep on your shelf for referring back to, although you may want to update it when a new version comes out every year.

This book is great for those who know what kind of business they wish to set up and also for people who aren't sure. It covers everything you need to know for setting up a business and is easy to digest. An excellent book for dipping in and out and a great reference book.The case studies are also inspiring and imaginative.
