Format: Paperback
This book may contain some useful information for would be entrepreneurs and may be well written but its credibility is all washed out when it has Simon Dixon as one of its contributors. Dixon puts himself about a lot - mainly as an economist and ex investment banker. He did get a degree in economics from Kingston but surely an economist would have a minimum of a Phd or more? When it comes to IB, now the fantasy really begins. His career in the City started as a tea boy at a stockbroker at the end of 2004 and finished by the end of 2006, when he left KBC Peel as trainee corporate financier; a post he held for just 4 months - rumour has it he was fired. Now that's a total of 2 years - a time in which he claims to have met and dealt with many CEO's and handled several very large financial deals. Is that likely?

Since 2006 he has had a trail of failures - although reading his description you would be forgiven for believing otherwise. Benedix, ''the world's largest student recruitment company for the IB sector'' made annual losses on small turnovers, before closing owing money. His Metal Monkey group never traded. That's it.

Which brings us onto Bank to the Future. An attempt at a crowdfunding site. It has a short history riddled with false ''successes'' being posted on the site (one now removed), totally misleading ''invested'' total on the home page and four business pitches with atrociously poor business plans - put together with Dixon's special help - god help them. Luckily very few people have been stupid enough to invest in any of them and we can all hope that this business goes the way of his other ones.

So do buy this book but be aware of the real facts about the contributors and their reasons for being there.

Excellent buy! Have read it cover to cover - and have even got extras to give to some of entrepreneurial spirited friends for Christmas!

It's informative - but also very witty. Would definitely recommend!
