A business autobiography from Duncan Bannatyne, one of the stars of BBC's Dragons' Den.
About the Author
Born in Clydebank, Scotland, Duncan Bannatyne is best known as one of the stars of BBC entrepreneurship programme Dragons’ Den. His own business career began in his twenties, when he bought an ice cream van for £450. He soon expanded by buying more vans and eventually sold the business for £28,000, founding a chain of care homes instead. Quality Care Homes subsequently sold for £26 million in 1997 and another business, children's nursery chain Just Learning, sold for £22 million. He has since built the well-known Bannatyne's Health Clubs chain, as well as investing in bars, hotels and property.
He has been honoured with the Order of the British Empire for his contributions to charity and is heavily involved with Comic Relief and UNICEF.

It takes courage to share such intimate and painful experiences about business and relationships so publicly. I'm sure that his recovery and strength will help many others going through similarly painful times, to pull through and come out the other side happier and content. I have no doubt that he will find great happiness again.
I agree with Duncan that Dragons Den can make small business owners, like myself, feel very small, inconsequential and inadequate. I sometimes don't watch the show now because I always find myself comparing myself to them and the successes on the show and feel down. It's nice to hear Duncan champion small businesses and I'm grateful for that recognition. There's a lot of us about and we all have our stories to tell.Read more ›
Duncan is an amazing guy & I'm sure that after what he has been through in the last 2 years will make him an even stronger person & more hungry for success
This is a great book & hopefully not the last one Duncan writes
