5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Page Turner....., 22 Feb. 2011
Great book from one of the leading Authors in the field. From the first page I was gripped by the insight and expert knowledge. Certainly recommended reading for ANY gender. It can be stark and hard hitting at times with the author delivering such well researched detail into the subject matter.

In summary it makes all other books on this subject seem empty.......

Would really like to see the Kindle version

5.0 out of 5 stars If you want a great business, Buy great business books....This is one., 21 Jun. 2010
I have a few of these types of book from various authors ( Seth Godin, Tim Ferriss and Felix Dennis) and I think Re work is up at the top of the tree for helping the reading think about their business in the future.

Rudimentary research on the authors brings you to their company, 37 Signals, and as a user of one of their free products (Ta-Da, an online to-do list) I can see that this is not just opinion but hard business facts outlined in this book.

The advice in the book can be used equally as weel if you are a Business starter (Note: One chapter suggesst we BAN the word "entrepenuer" for damn good reasons) OR a Salary Man looking to change how you work.

In summary I congratulate the authors for starting an excellent company and having the good grace to share their secrets with the rest of us, more people will create successful businesses if they read and implement the ideas in the the book. I know I will, PH

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible! A handbook for a lifestyle everyone should have., 9 Jan. 2010
I have had this book for a long time now and I read parts of it at least once a fortnight. The book is an excellent guide to altering the accepted 'Normal' lifestyle with some real world advice and actions.

Using virtual assistants and automating business processes, "Buys" you so much spare time it verges on the unbelievable.

Some of the individual chapters could save you many thousands of pounds, I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can you really have a 'COOL' washing line??, 19 Aug. 2007
Really well made piece of equipment. Instructions printed on box include a drilling template to make sure all of the holes line up....simple but saves hours!!

Is very sizeable when open but its unique feature is when folded it just looks like a long grey rain cover on the wall, very subtle in our city garden ( or small and steep yard to put it another way!!)

A long piece of washing line would do the same job, but this would appeal to gadget freaks like me who enjoy stuff that is different, is well engineered and just works.

Pricey but I would recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great images in small stylish package, 11 May 2007
As many other reviewers, I researched the web for hours when choosing a digi-camera and I am more than satisfied with The Canon Ixus 70.

Tips for buyers

1. Buy a 2gb SD card - Sandisk seem to be good quality and well priced. This takes the Photo capacity upto 1000 in certain modes plus 15minutes of video. Beware very cheap SD cards - my images were too precious to risk being lost to corrupt cards!

2. The Ixus 70 is the highest Megapixel Canon model ( 7 mp ) with a viewfinder. This is really useful to preserve battery life if you are just snapping. Other models in the Ixus range only use the screen as the viewfinder, which can drain battery life.

3. Buy a case. Th camera doesn't come with a case. I would recommend trying to find one which can also hold extra SD cards/battery.

Very impressed with this product, works stright out of the box and for once (!) the bundled software (zoombrowser ex) is a very inutitive photo storage software package.

HIghly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good advice, delivered with a right hook!, 17 Dec. 2006
This review is from: How to Get Rich (Hardcover)
Really good book, whether you read it for entertainment or looking for advice. The grandiose title means the author must really deliver and does so in spades. I bought the book at the 99% stage of beginning my own business venture and it proved exactly what I needed in terms of understanding the harsh realities of making your fortune.

The tone of this book is suited to those who value a blunt, forthright view of the business world and have a zero tolerance for b*llsh1t!. This guy has done it and deserves his money (both for his business empire and the royalties of this book)

I have had the book for about a month, finished reading it in 2 days, now dip into chapters to reinforce the knowledge it provides.

Buy the book if only for one reason - it will teach you about sentimentality in business and why millions of people are poor because of it.

When I make my fortune I will send the author a bottle of Petrus as a Thank you.
