5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational Stuff!
The thrill of being an entrepreneur and giving shape to your own business model is unparalleled but the harsh reality is that more than half of all start-up businesses in the UK fail within the first year. Each year thousands of hopefuls try their hand and each year thousands fail. So what is this fine line between success and failure one wonders? Rachel Bridge, the...

3.0 out of 5 stars Would recommend, 3+
40 Chapters on successful entrepreneurs, 2/3 pages on each of their stories and what they do/how they did it/and some advice. Not a bad read, lacks depth, but then it says that when you buy the book. Very honest. Worth a read if you are interested in a lot of different areas of business. Many of the entreprenueurs covered are fairly unknown, which is also a positive as...

5.0 out of 5 stars Opportunity Inspiration, 11 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
"How I Made It by : 40 Successful Entrepreneurs" by Rachel Bridge features profiles on men and women who successfully became self-made millionaires. The book is informative and even features stats on personal details that they bravely shared (such as educational levels, marital status, motto etc.). I also really liked that there was a balanced feature of men and women from a myriad of backgrounds.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good examples of success, 14 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Interesting reading, confirms that character is essential, linked with a dream but also with luck, a happy coincidence. Hard work is not the only answer.

This review is from: How I Made It: 40 Successful Entrepreneurs Reveal How They Made Millions (Kindle Edition)
Nice overview of some inspirational stories, I would have preferred 10 short biographies with more detail, rather than 40 very short ones, good nonetheless.

2.0 out of 5 stars underwhelming - should have different title..., 2 Oct 2008
By 
Mr. T. Baker "Aficionado" (Herts, UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This is a book of success stories, each about 4-5 pages long. Its nice to read these stories, but if you're looking for real "how to" jewels of wisdom for making it in business yourself (as you might expect from the title), I'd say look elsewhere. I think its impossible to impart any real wisdom in the few pages given to each success story. Still, its nice to see that these people have done it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as it could have been..., 1 Feb 2007
The profiles were interesting to read, however every one of them lacked the depth and detail I was expecting. The author did not make a convincing argument bridging the period between the entrepreneur getting their big idea and how it came to fruition. It all seemed too easy, one minute they've got a great idea, the next they've got the funding and away they go. In the real world, it's a hard slog getting from A to B. More could have been written about the difficulties faced by these entrepreneurs in getting their business started up, and more about the problems they faced as they went from fledgling business to successful entrepreneur. It's not all cloud cuckoo land, you know!
