I purchased this book after watching the series and was absolutely blown away by his straight talking style. The book elaborates quite a lot on the brief stories which were featured in the two part series and I highly recommend it.
As well as this there is good business advice, Dave's own story of how he succeeded in his own businesses and humorous stories galore - real laugh out loud moments!
A lot of the things he talks of are really simple - but how often do we ignore the simple things just because they are so?
One of the passages is this - 'It was a eureka moment. Life-changing. Forget the cars. Vans were where it was at.' It brought to mind someone I once knew who acknowledged this at the time, he talked often about 'getting into van sales' but never did. Which brings me swiftly onto another one of Dave's quotes - 'Just talking about doing something is no good. You've got to put your words into action. Plans and dreams are nothing more than that if you don't do anything about achieving them.'
However, the best quote in this book for me, and one I've quoted oh sooo many times myself personally - 'Turnover is for vanity; profit is for sanity.'
This is a really good read for anyone but if you run, or are thinking of setting up your own business, you've just got to purchase this book!
If you read this review by any chance Dave Fishwick, yours has to be one of the most admirable ventures so far in the twenty first century. Good luck to you and all your customers.
As I was reading this book,the banks were continuing to pay out multi million pound bonuses, whilst their lending was again falling and George Osborne was preparing to go to Europe to try to prevent the Swiss and European move to get these bonuses capped !!!!!!
