I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn how do you take an idea from start to getting it accepted by key decision makers. The book was sitting in my book case for a while and I started reading it and I was pleasantly surprised how practical this book is.
Ok, maybe I'm being too harsh in the guy. After all, his is an interesting story. He starts out as a poor, but bright Brazilian businessman; a real go-getter with nothing but street-smarts who learns to rely upon his intuition to zero-in on goals. Then -- through hard work and excellent planning -- does everything he can, using every contact and every support mechanism available, to reach up, grab opportunities and make them a reality. He's a persevering guy, confident, and has -- since becoming successful -- made his dreams come true.
I like his casual writing style, his ability to provide real-world applications to his ideas, and one can't help but smile with him as he "makes it" in the high-altitude business worlds of the Elite Modeling, Donald Trump and the top movers-and-shakers of the Brazilian business world. The profiles of about 23 entrepreneurs such as Michael Dell, Sam Walton, Donald Trump and many other "masters" illustrates his ideas. He has done a lot of reading, compared what psychologists have to say to his own street-intelligence, and put it all in writing as practical advice for others trying to make it. He's honest, too; closing the book on a discussion of his mistakes and failures.
While not an earth-shaker of a book, it's an excellent and helpful read for entrepreneurs-to-be looking for any advantage to get their foot in the door.
Yes, maybe even Donald Trumps door!

The section on "Learning from the Masters" gave briefs on some successful personnel but the section looked more than a summarised biography than anything else.
The only insightful section lies in "Lessons from the Apprentice" where Ricardo described to the readers some of the pitfall that the participants fell into.
Not worthy of buying due to the content and only worthwhile to spend time on relevant sections that meet your needs.
