DUNCAN IS A LEGEND! VERY INSPIRING READ.
on 13 July 2017
Prior to reading, all I knew about Duncan was from what I saw on Dragon's Den. However, having read the book my opinion of him has completely changed. Before reading I just thought he was a stern, northern, no-nonsense entrepreneur, now I think he's an inspirational role model. I really enjoyed reading how he got started and built his business from scratch. The book flows brilliantly and you feel you are sitting with Duncan while he tells you his life story. The book is very moving, really sad and upsetting in parts and hilariously funny in others (The story of the paperclips/pens and the fight in the ice cream van are great :) Later in the book, I was blown away when I discovered how kind and compassionate Duncan is, he does so much for charity and people who need help. It's a side of him you never really see on the T.V. Duncan just proves the naysayers wrong and that anybody who works hard and is dedicated enough can achieve great things. This book has really motivated me to better my life, and I think it will yours too. Highly recommended.
