Review

“This is the book to give you a kick up the behind and make you turn your idea into a business now!

It is well written, powerful and motivating. It demystifies the business process, and helps you get into the right state of mind to overcome your fears…..

……Zoom is the complete opposite of every school of business thought – this book is designed for here and now, the modern world where technology has lowered the barriers for entry.

One of a kind and well worth reading!”

Start your Business Magazine

"...an attractive read, set out in a coherent format: from coming up with an idea, seeing it take shape through to turning it into a business.... Valuable to those who want to learn about a different approach to launching a business, it will be especially useful to those who have great ideas but are unsure how to progress. Between them Sanders and Sloly have a wealth of experience in start-ups and it shows."

Director

 

“Easy and interesting to read Zoom! is broken up with case studies which include Leon restaurants and Moo; the chapters are set out to lead you from catching the right idea to launch day in a thought provoking way….. If you have ideas for a business but get overwhelmed with all the facets and where to go next then have a look out for this book. It has sensible, practical advice that will help you to focus on what you need to do and not get distracted.”

5.0 out of 5 stars A book brimming with ideas and inspiration 1 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback
As with Ian's first two books, LEAP!: Ditch Your Job, Start Your Own Business & Set Yourself Free and Juggle! Rethink Work, Reclaim your Life, this book (co-written with David Sloly) will have a big impact on me. The previous two books have had an influence in where I find my self today. I now work for a startup who's focus is something I'm passionate about. My role is one that I really wanted, I helped define and encompasses the things I enjoy and want to do. And I live and work in a way that I'm comfortable with, incorporates my passions and makes me happy.

This book couldn't have come at a better time for me. Whilst reading it I could reflect on my experiences of a failed startup as well as looking at how the startup I'm involved with now are doing things. It's making me ask questions and make suggestions. In fact it does this so often I kept finding myself putting the book down to send out an email, write down some notes, write a blog post or start a discussion. Not only is it useful and interesting retrospectively it also addresses things we have yet to consider, ideas we've not yet put into action and introduced new ideas. You can tell the book is written by Ideas guys as it's brimming with them.

So, this book is for you if:

* you are thinking of starting a business and need the motivation to do so
* you are thinking of starting a business but don't know how to do it or think it's too difficult
* have started a business previously but need a new perspective on how to do things
* you've just started a business and needs some fresh ideas

I'd also recommend you check out Leap! and Juggle! If you've already read those books then I'm surprised you are reading this review as you'll already have ordered Zoom! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars A catalyst for action 3 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback
The authors clearly set out to practise what they preach in writing Zoom. It is direct, down to earth and full of energy. Each chapter combines practical suggestions with contributions from entrepreneurs who have already 'walked the path'. Although some of the concepts were familiar to me, there were plenty of new nuggets. The style is simple and readable - almost casual - and this leaves you with no excuses for inertia and procrastination. I can see myself continuing to dip into it over the coming weeks when in need of motivation!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant read 10 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback
An excellent insight into how a small business works. A small business is not a miniature version of a large one, so don't treat it that way. Thanks to David Sloly for this book.
