5.0 out of 5 stars A book brimming with ideas and inspiration, 1 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Zoom!: The Faster Way to Make Your Business Idea Happen (Financial Times Series) (Paperback)
As with Ian's first two books, LEAP!: Ditch Your Job, Start Your Own Business & Set Yourself Free and Juggle! Rethink Work, Reclaim your Life, this book (co-written with David Sloly) will have a big impact on me. The previous two books have had an influence in where I find my self today. I now work for a startup who's focus is something I'm passionate about. My role is one that I really wanted, I helped define and encompasses the things I enjoy and want to do. And I live and work in a way that I'm comfortable with, incorporates my passions and makes me happy.

This book couldn't have come at a better time for me. Whilst reading it I could reflect on my experiences of a failed startup as well as looking at how the startup I'm involved with now are doing things. It's making me ask questions and make suggestions. In fact it does this so often I kept finding myself putting the book down to send out an email, write down some notes, write a blog post or start a discussion. Not only is it useful and interesting retrospectively it also addresses things we have yet to consider, ideas we've not yet put into action and introduced new ideas. You can tell the book is written by Ideas guys as it's brimming with them.

So, this book is for you if:

* you are thinking of starting a business and need the motivation to do so
* you are thinking of starting a business but don't know how to do it or think it's too difficult
* have started a business previously but need a new perspective on how to do things
* you've just started a business and needs some fresh ideas

I'd also recommend you check out Leap! and Juggle! If you've already read those books then I'm surprised you are reading this review as you'll already have ordered Zoom! :)
