This book is no different from any of Richard Bransons in that he teaches us by telling his story. Unlike Branson he didn't become a multi-millionaire or at least he didn't keep the millions he made but if you can take on board what he is teaching about attitude and mindset then you will have got something very valuable and something which no MBA or lecturer can ever teach you because they have never been there.
Comments about him missing out details about internet marketing are baffling because this is not a how to manual, it is a how to think and how to pick yourself up when you are knocked down manual.
I personally really enjoyed it and could related to the author. It will certainly help anyone who wants a taste of what life is like as an entrepreneur from somebody who has been there and done that.
I am onto my fourth company by the way so on the same path myself.

If you think you might be an entrepreneur - and especially if you already are one - get this book and enjoy the vicarious thrill of wins following defeats, cash in abundence suddenly slipping out of reach - in short the life of an entrepreneur-holic. You'll learn lots, not least the importance of keeping going in the face of daunting odds - with the help of a little creative thinking.
True: the book does give an insight into how persuasion and planning can go a long way to securing some business success. But Terry's direct examples seem outdated in this age of emails, computers and mobile phones. For the British reader it doesn'y help that Allen is so US Centric - which clearly cant be helped as he IS an American, but how many of his deals could really be struck on a business stuffy UK stage?
On the positive side, Terry Allen should provide an example to all would be entrepreneurs. His action led business life is packed full of ideas, and if he teaches us anything, its not to let anything stand in our way.
Don't buy this book as a manual on how to start a business without financial backing - buy it as a selective Autobiography of an Entrepreneur and you will feel rather less disappointed. And don't worry about congratulating the Author on his feats - he does a good enough job of that himself.

since i bought this book i have not been able to put it down and now im in the last few pages of it, and i have learnt a lot from his advice.
although a lot of his business' where successful for a time in the end the most of them went bust, but this doesnt stop him from giving words of advice.
i have read a lot of books in my time ( a lot from amazon) and this book has changed the way i think about business practices and with his tips maybe i might be succesful.
