I thought there would be more tips and advice on planning parties & events in this book. For the average event manager, they're not going to build props and have a big store room and rent out everything.

This book is more of an autobiography than a "how to" book so although very entertaining it wasn't overly informative.

I also totally disagree with the principle of say yes to everything. People might see this as being negative but I've had people in the past who've said they could build a website in 2 months for me and it took a year, someone who said they could build me a prop when they couldn't. Someone tell me they could DJ at an event when they'd never DJ'd. There answer afterwards was always "I thought I could do it" I know it's one of the core principles of their business but ask yourself this. Would you use a company who advertised, "We say yes to everything...even if we don't have it or don't have a clue how to make it...we'll say we can do it".

Was torn between 3 & 4 stars. But I've learned a couple of things from it and the tips section was laid out clearly so I think it deserves a 4.

There are some books which are informative and some which are fun. This manages to be both, and it's in manageable chunks so quite easy to dip into and find useful tips. I'd recommend it for someone who is starting out in business, especially in the media, because it shows that you can struggle for a long time and seem to get nowhere, and then if you are smart (and lucky) enough to have the right idea, things can really take off.

As an event management student, i found this to be a very interesting and in depth story of the journey that David Jamilly had to become a market leader worldwide! Nice to hear comments from their staff and friends about things that have gone wrong whilst running events, however still managing to create an exceptional event, even through the recession. Very exciting insight into the events industry!

Good read, more of the company history then a "how to" guide. Weird format though, narrator missing sort off.
