4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - would be 5 stars but for my harsh marking, 16 April 2011
This review is from: The Small Business Start-Up Workbook: A step-by-step guide to starting the business you've dreamed of (Paperback)
I bought this back in 2006-7ish when I was a know-it-all fresh graduate. I read it then and understood hardly any of it. I shelfed it away somewhere and now fast forward 5 years, myself now having lived in the real business world and I somehow picked it up and started reading it again but with the additional 5 years of knowledge... well well well.. I started reading it and I was skimming it hoping to say "it's full of hot air" but how wrong was I!

This girl really does know what she's on about. Everything from business form, finance, accounts, staffing. It's all there. But oh hell it's took me 5 years of real world experience (or there abouts) to be on the same playing field as this writer. Oh I bet there's lots of 40 year old + reading this laughing at my review who can't remember when they went through this. But youngerns I hope this will help.

Only downside is it's very brief. Maybe that's a good thing maybe a bad thing and there are omissions (she couldn't include everything!) but I reckon you should look on business internet sites/forums to suppliment it (don't start buying loads of books that never helps no matter what the subject!).

Anyway hope this helps. Great book!
