    I feel this book was intended for the new entrepreneur. It scans the basics but can feel almost insulting if you've been in business for over a year. Overall a good cliff notes version or rather can be used as a checklist of things you need to know or search for more information about any given topic. I'd hardly describe it as it's subtitle claims: "Everything You Need to Know to Succeed in Your Small Business." Ahh, if only. I feel this book was intended for the new entrepreneur.

    What the hell did I just read - total garbage. I have no idea who the author is but this book has all the "textbook lecturer " feel you would perhaps expect from someone obviously who has never conducted actual business or is even is an entrepreneur- rather "teaching it" at college or something yet they have no real right - just regurgitating shit! If you have any aspirations in business and for real entrepreneurship this book is something I'd stay away from - actually puts you off and can be dan What the hell did I just read - total garbage.

If you have any aspirations in business and for real entrepreneurship this book is something I'd stay away from - actually puts you off and can be dangerously overwhelming to a newbie who hopes this can help - total wrong place to start Not a " business bible " by any stretch - as a "bible" would be complete or least talk about good ever green foundational business principles yet this talks about shit that's not relevant or easily can be redundant in the fast paced world of business ( especially when referring to specific tools and software ) Even what the author covers is vague and pathetic - not taught well and quick whereas in reality whole books can be written on what he tries to cover to do it true justice - no real message in this book at all just scattered gibberish ( only the naive or newbies can fall for this crap in my opinion ) Oh my I could go in and on how stupid this is - from talk about franchising and finding ones to suit you ( what the fuck?! ) this ain't entrepreneurship - you should be teaching us to sell them not select them To talk about being first in business ..? You mad? Plenty rules in various businesses and industries where being first doesn't matter (going opposite to what he teaches) as the next entrepreneurs innovate better and always have pushed into markets once held by Titans I'm going to stop now - it was plain rubbish - I urge anyone reading my review to check out other far superior books I've rated 5 stars for good recommendations on business and entrepreneurship advice from real people and people who make sense!

    Audio-booked this one. A wealth of small-business information--read in the most boring possible voice. You can tell that there was an update to the edition that you're listening too, because all of a sudden a new voice chimes in, that sounds approximately like the old voice, but a little bit higher in pitch. That voice contributes one sentence to a paragraph or text, then goes away. This book gets all of its 3 stars for its information, and 0 stars for its style.

The guy uses litotes to excessive excess. These are meant to be used sparingly, for emphasis. Good writers avoid just what happened in this book--a groan and eye-roll every time the author proclaims, once again, that "this endeavor is not inexpensive!" Anyway, I'm glad I listened to it, but it wasn't an easy thing to do.

    This was overall a good read, though it ended up being more of a basic overview than I had hoped. I know what Facebook is, for example, but i would have preferred meatier tips for using it for my business for example.

    Ultra basic, mostly common sense, good for a person who is still only thinking about it. Not worth the time if you already own a business because you likely already figured most of it out on your own.

    This was an awful pieces of garbage. He devastates forests waxing poetic about the "dream" of owning a small business. He regurgitates obvious rubbish, such as how borrowing from friends family is cheaper, but what if things go wrong...

Anyone who needs a book to tell them that almost certainly shouldn't even think of opening a business. There's almost nothing in this book you probably don't already know because it's obvious. And the few things that aren't, such as the different Small Business Administration loan programs, he goes into very little depth on. The one sort-of highlight was the different types of legal structures (s-corp, c-corp, LLP, sole proprietorship). That subject still could have used a lot more depth and a lot less "you should consult your accountant and attorney...", but it was better than the rest of the book. If you need to know that stuff though, don't buy this book. Just go to Wikipedia or something. Or ask your accountant and attorney.

    This book is good for those just starting out, perhaps unsure if owning a business is right for them or what owning a business entails. I rate it four stars because the tag line "Everything You Need to Know to Succeed in Your Small Business" is misleading. To be fair, that's an impossible task for just a few hundred pages. Nobody can live up to that promise. I re-read parts of it every now and again. The author gives a broad overview of some business basics.

It can get you started if you're overwhelmed and feeling lost. It is great for what it is, but is by no means an exhaustive "only book you'll ever need" solution- and in my opinion some advice is limited or outdated, and other critical info is glanced over or omitted when it should be given more weight. All in all, a worthy buy for a newbie but dont stop here. Keep learning.

    Giving this two stars instead of one as I found a couple new interesting nuggets on how to find a future entrepreneur venture that I had not previously considered. Outside of those nuggets and having purchased, owned, run and closed down a franchise business within the last 10 years, I found most of the remaining content things I've already had the opportunity to experience and during some chapters couldn't wait for the 10 hours of audio to be over.

I think it offers some good insights and steps on how to look for, open and operate a business for many first time individuals looking for that next opportunity.

    This is not a bad book but it feels dated and conventional. It assumes you are going to get a loan, rent an office, and of course have a business plan written out. It does go over a lot of business basics so if you know nothing it's probably a decent place start. However, it doesn't seem to take into account the recent trends in microbusiness, low-cost startups, and so on. I downloaded the audio book from my library's OverDrive and listened to about a third of it before it expired. I feel that, This is not a bad book but it feels dated and conventional.

    This is another book that delivers on its title. It really does provide an introduction to everything you need to know to succeed in running a small business. I thought it might end up being a dull read, so I was pleasantly surprised. It's chock full of tips, suggestions, ideas, and inspiring quotes and stories. You can only absorb so much while driving and listening. So I may invest and purchase the book as a reference. This is another book that delivers on its title.

    The information in here is actually more than I need for what I have in mind, but it covers a lot of the basics (like terms, for instance) that I didn't know. Very good read for anyone contemplating starting up a small biz in the U.S. The information in here is actually more than I need for what I have in mind, but it covers a lot of the basics (like terms, for instance) that I didn't know.

    This is a well designed book that is easy to read. It has highlighted boxes and readable font. It takes the complicated task of building and running a small business and breaking it down to reasonable organized sections which almost anyone can follow the concepts. I would highly recomend this book.

    This is best for the new entrepreneur. I audio-booked it, and it's read in a very boring voice. I think the quiz at the beginning was good though. My biggest weakness is risk intolerance.
