The guidance in this book should save you loads of money and make your business prosper , already i have spotted errors of judgement in my own business model and quickly turning things around acting on the advice gleaned from this book ..excellent ,highly recommend ..
For someone that is very serious about starting a business, I did not find this book very useful. For one I do not think it reads very well - it's very conversational which makes some of the author's points quite difficult to understand. The advice given seems to be very light-hearted rather than constructive and organised and hence just not useful. The book feels as though it was written in a rush. I want to start a business so I want some direction and some solid advice - I did not find this in this book and would definitely would not recommend it to anyone.
Having read this book I am still none the wiser as to where to start in regards to my business start-up; in fact I'm more confused than I was before.

Brilliant Start-Up's "brilliant examples," which are strewn throughout its pages, are both amusing and motivating. Don't expect anything groundbreaking and you'll enjoy this quick read.
