No fluff and an easy read. As long as you're not expecting a literary masterpiece, you'll like this book. Well worth a read.
The author has a way with words and shares some amusing stories all of which contain a key message.
I 100% recommend this to any one who is reading anything around business & entrepreneurship.
After an initial chapter in which Jeremy Harbour outlines very briefly to date his own life of entrepreneurship, Chapters 2-3 deal with weighing up future success and failure and associated risks of both starting a prospective business versus continuing life as before. The author then focuses on both overcoming the worst excuses that prevent people from starting up and also taking responsibility for the future success of the business (Chapters 4 and 6). I thought Chapter 5 to be particularly useful in its consideration and comparison of, on the one hand, new inventions and, on the other hand, innovative products in established markets. Subsequent chapters (7-10)deal with finding your customers and planning, marketing, selling to and communicating with those customers. The concluding Chapter 11 sets out over a three-month period '... a series of time-based objectives so that you can begin to put into practice the planning you've started...'.
The author makes it very easy for readers to refer to specific points and learn key ideas and recommendations. Chapters 2 to 10 include very helpful end-of-section 'Lessons to be Gained from this Chapter' summaries. There is also a well constructed, detailed index, not always to be taken for granted nowadays, which can direct readers to specific points of interest for reference, before, during or after a main read of the whole text.
I am very impressed with the combined succinctness and readability of the text. Jeremy achieves in only limited space what other business writers can't do in much longer texts.Read more ›
