This review is from: Student to CEO (Paperback)
This book is absolute rubbish. I know someone who worked at KBC Peel Hunt with him and is nowhere near as talented as he claims to be. In fact I believe the company made him redundant after they were contacted by law courts for non payment of his oyster card. I think they were glad to see the back of him. I also know various people who paid to attend his course but where hoodwinked when they found out the venue didn't exist. Clearly this book should be filed under fiction.

Funny enough, I tell this story in full in my book, so not sure if this is a book review as you clearly have not read it and am not implying you should either, but to clarify I was not made redundant I quite for the exact reason explained in the book - go with what you are passionate about, because nothing else will give you the satisfaction I feel everybody deserves in life.
My mission was to make a bigger impact in banking and that is exactly what I get to do today, something that could never have been done in my job.
I have nothing to hide.

I was going to make a comment, to the effect that I would not trust a reviewer that didn't know the difference between "were" and "where", as they were clearly an uneducated sod who was just jealous of Simon Dixon's success.
Then I find that Mr Dixon himself, in his retort, has made the mistake of "quite" instead of "quit".
At the risk of being labelled a Spelling-Nazi, all I can say is, "Oh dear, is this the state of our education system?"

If you have nothing to hide why do not tell the truth. You were never a merchant banker - 3 months as a trainee at Peels in 2006 really does not classify you as anything apart from trainee, so why do you insist on bigging up your city career - it never happened? It does make it very hard to take the rest of your claims seriously. You may indeed have something to offer but you have to start by being frank and honest.
