I have just started my online business with this book at my side, it tells you about copyright laws, international laws and lots of other legal stuff that is required in setting up as a LTD, Partnership, Sole Trader or a LLP.

The book tells you how to write a business plan, how to get sponsorships from the Princes Trust and banks etc, it tells you what you should do in terms of laying people off if that should ever happen,

How to draw up terms of sale, disclaimers, how to employ staff, how to choose your products, search for competition, price your products accordingly, too high or too low is bad for your business.

The book also tells you how to advertise, forge links and register for PayE in the UK, Make sure you get the UK version as the American one uses the US Laws which are different from UK ones!! DONT SCREW UP HERE.

The book also tells you on how to sell your product, website? telephone directory? check the market before starting? does the product already exist? can you legally start a business? if you ran a previous business that went into debt etc.

It tells you about Bank Loans and how they are tied to you and your business, which i found very helpful. The book has useful links to companies house and various other organisations that you need to contact in the process of starting up.

The only bad thing is, I have lost my copy, I will have to root it out at some point...

Hope this helps you, this book is fantastic in telling you how to start up, brilliant book, love it!

The book gave me the basics but no more but I suppose that's why they call it "for dummies"

It was easy to read which is always a bonus. Funding had always been a big issue for me and the authors provided good and interesting content on that.

If you're completely new to running a business it's a good insight. If you're already in business then it will be too basic for you.

Bought as a gift but the Dummies range is great and is very easy to read and digest. There are also a few comments made throughout that make you giggle. Highly recommended.

Great value for money!

This book is very long and covers a large range of topics in good enough detail to get you started. I have been using it as a reference for issues as they arise (the book is well divided to make this an easy task), and I have also slowly been progressing through the entire book.

It is by no means a short read (at least for average readers like me).

I do find some parts aren't that interesting/ useful but you can always skip those parts (especially if not relevant to your company).

Anyway, if you are considering starting a company (or already have done recently), you should buy this book.

The dummies series is great!

I bought this book thinking it would be the 'definitive guide to setting up and growing a successful business', like it says on the cover.

Sadly, though, it doesn't provide the nitty-gritty bits of information I wanted to know. For instance, it doesn't say anything at all about the need for public liability insurance, or indeed insurance of any kind.

Perhaps the problem is that the book has 19 contributors (too many cooks!) and reads more like a business studies textbook than a how-to guide.
