the style is natural and fluid. He has some controversial suggestions But that s what makes it such an interesting, rejuvenating read; rather than spouting the same old ideas, the proposed changes are revolutionary and disruptive. Just like the greatest entrepreneurs (Talk Business, April 2013) The book is superb. Straight talking. Nothing complex about technology, social media or strategy, but some very simple home truths that are very difficult to argue against This book gave me a jolt. It forced me to look at our business model, reinforced my belief in entrepreneurship and taught me a few new things all the things you want from a good book (startupdonut.co.uk, July 2013)

I nearly stopped reading it, but I'm so glad I didn't as from this point on the book got better and better.
Daniel then moves on explain how we can take advantage of this revolution and covers the psychology of Entrepreneurship; monkey brains and the like, which is interesting but has been done to death elsewhere.
He then describes business strategies which are straightforward. These made a great deal of sense to me. The gist of it is that for a business to become really valuable it has to be scaleable. This is the ability to grow exponentially and not be restricted to a small geographic market, so that the business has the ability to grow and grow without the owner being present. If you have ever watched 'Dragon's Den', you will know exactly what I mean. Daniel describes how this can be achieved in a very practical and straightforward manner.
This is a well written and thought out book, full of great ideas that most business people could put into practice straight away, and that to me is the strength and value in Daniel's writing. I particularly like his section about business maxims; a common sense version of vision and mission if you like. They are designed to keep the entrepreneur and team on the same page, going in the same direction.
I LOVED No 1. “You get what you pitch for...and you are always pitching”. It initially sounds too simple and a bit flim flam, but Daniel gets under skin of it. If you say something for long enough you will eventually believe it and those around you will pass comment to support it. So beware, because you will get what you pitch for, so better to be a glass half full kind of person!
To summarise, a very straightforward and inspiring book, written in a very conversational style. If you want to start (or develop) your own business, then I would urge you to read it, as it will stop you falling down some of the business potholes that can entrap you and give you some great direction. I'm 100% confident that any budding entrepreneurs reading Entrepreneur Revolution will find Daniel's thoughts of great value in supporting their journey. Oh, and I marked it with 4 rather than 5 stars because I nearly stopped reading it after the first section - I’m so glad that I kept going!
I am a labourer on minimum wage and I do not let the job I have put me down because every day I know one day I will the man I want to be and that day is very soon I can feel it.
I Thank you Daniel Priestley for giving me hope and belief.
Daniel Priestley covers the subject with extreme clarity giving both an historical perspective of work and how this new Entrepreneurial Revolution is changing everything we have taken for granted since the industrial revolution.
We need to think differently and work differently to take advantage of the opportunities that are available today.
The 2 key concepts that blew my mind are: ‘Income follows assets’ and the ‘Key Person of Influence’. I now look at businesses in a whole new way.
This book is essential reading for anyone aspiring to be an entrepreneur or needing to improve an existing business or even just to really understand how this revolution will affect us all.
It truly exceeded my expectations. It gave me various insights on skills and abilities that are paramount in the 21st century in order to not only grow your business but to stay in business by adapting ourselves on how it changes. It shows us how to grow our mindset on all levels and stop complaining of the current status quo but to act upon it and to keep pitching. Nevertheless,it tells how we are taught by society to have a greedy mindset, our sense of entitlements and many other aspects that we acquired from society and should get rid of it right away if we really want to be part of the entrepreneur revolution. It is a lot to grasp in only one read and that is why it is the perfect book to have for anyone who is starting a business, it is cuts to the chase and doesn't get boring at any moment.
