Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
An extraordinarily large book that has the bold claim of being the only book you will need to be inspired and empowered to start up your own business. The claim is a bit far-fetched but it can still be a good resource.

Written for those based in the United States, it certainly does try and take you through the whole A to Z of starting a business. It cannot be everything to everyone but it has a reasonable stab at covering all of the bases and, if nothing else, acts as a great jumping off point to other reading and research. For those who are not based in the United States, there will be a lot of irrelevant information you will need to skip over, but maybe you will still get your money’s worth!

Another way to look at things is that for the cost of a few coffees you get an immense resource to help you decide whether you really want to go into business yourself and how you might make that journey.

On the whole the information given is clear, reasonably uncontroversial and quite helpful, yet this reviewer believes that it shouldn’t be your only book should you decide to go along the path of business creation. Treat it as a source of good, outline advice and you won’t go far wrong. Generalising is difficult as there are times when you would want to or need to make a business plan but in some situations if you spend several months on your business plan, refining it and polishing it until it could blind you, you might have lost the competitive advantage as another agile person has the idea and has already got their prototype to market.

The glossary at the end is excellent and can be a great help in navigating unfamiliar jargon.

This is an excellent book. My husband and I are contemplating starting our own business and this book has really helped us to determine if that is the best decision for us. It is very clear and to the point about the positives and negatives of beginning a business and gives great insight into this. I really like the scenarios of successful businesses that were started with people just like us. Thanks for a great book.

While it is difficult to write a one size fits all book on starting any type of business, this is an excellent resource for those starting a business. Entrepreneur shares good quality information and this lives up to that reputation. Helpful.
