    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 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. It is hoped that the index is similarly comprehensive as the rest of the book – it would be essential here – although it was missing in this pre-release review copy. As you dig deeper into the book you might be advised to not take everything at face value. The advice, given as an example of a direct mail marketing campaign, of sending headache tablets to prospective customers is a “cute idea” and one understands the thought process, but ethically the idea of sending legal drugs to a prospect leaves this reviewer cold. As the recipient they’d go straight in the bin, you don’t know how they’ve been handled or stored or their real contents and I think the company would be at the bottom of any consideration list due to their lack of foresight. Play on the “solving a headache” line by all means, even promise a free pack of headache tablets with a consultation and present a sealed retail package at your meeting. Yet sending a couple of tablets to an unknown person in the mail…. Run away! It is a shame that such advice can sour the otherwise great advice given by this book. Seeing such nonsense or “errors of judgement” stick in the mind, taking away the otherwise good that it can offer. It is an enjoyable book with a lot to possibly give. You could easily get your money’s worth and a lot more besides, even if you never do start a business. Yet a little more thought might have made a big difference!

    Want to start your own business? Don’t know where to start or even what to do? The book got you covered! A very useful book for entreps and entreps wanna-be there. It will guide you from scratch in naming your business to marketing physically or the old traditional way and the internet-base marketing. The only parts that are not so useful especially when you live outside US is the tax part and other government related transaction chapters.

I highly recommend his book to any small business owner or anyone considering starting a business. This title is full of valuable information. Some of it you may already know, but I guarantee readers will find something new and or something they can use for their business. Start your own business covers everything from business structure (i.e., sole-proprietor, LLC, Corporation) to marketing to employee engagement. Even after twenty years in business, I found tips and information that I hadn’t even considered. The staff at Entrepreneur Media includes valuable worksheets to help business owners run their business smoothly. You’ll learn how to keep accurate financial statements, how to seek marketing in the press, how to write a business and marketing plan, as well government related issues. I have a list of books I recommend to my clients and this is one of those books that have been recently added to the list. It is a large book, but rightfully so. There is so much information in this book. I can guarantee you’ll get good use out of this book, refer to it frequently and at twenty books, you’d be crazy NOT to buy this book.

    Extremely comprehensive and useful! All the topics are explored at a high level for the absolute beginner. There are plenty of useful resources for additional research and this is a great book for discovering what you don't know you don't know. The section on technology seems too rudimentary and outdated (no mention of fibre optics, and some of the tech recommendation is a bit behind). Never the less, love this as a reference book.

It’s written in a style that it’s great for beginners and very nicely sorted out which makes it easy to navigate through. You can read it in two ways: first you can read it and start working on your plan how you went through book part-by-part; or you can read it all at once and then went back and start from scratch, but this time start writing plan and your ideas how you go through the book. All important topics that you need to learn when starting a business are covered in this book, such as: getting business ideas; building or buying business; market research; finding audience; choosing the right name and logo; financing your business idea if you don’t have enough capital; buying equipment; how to hire properly; learning about marketing, sales and advertising; providing excellent customer service; learning about networking with your customer, as well as with associates; having in the right order your finances and taxes. And there’s plenty more, but this can be a very short summary to help you get better understanding of it.

    This inclusive book is very useful for entrepreneurs because it basically covers every aspect of starting a business to running one and even selling one. Surprisingly, every aspect is covered with some detail despite the fact that there are books that have been and will continue to be written on each one. Those aspects are as follows: pre-buiness; the idea and reason to start your own business, the plan you take to ensure that your idea becomes a reality, the funding for the business, preparing This inclusive book is very useful for entrepreneurs because it basically covers every aspect of starting a business to running one and even selling one. Surprisingly, every aspect is covered with some detail despite the fact that there are books that have been and will continue to be written on each one. Those aspects are as follows: pre-buiness; the idea and reason to start your own business, the plan you take to ensure that your idea becomes a reality, the funding for the business, preparing your systems, buying the appropriate items for the business, marketing your business and engaging through different channels, and how to run the business. Of course, this level of inclusiveness can work against the book in many ways as well. For example if somebody is stuck at the idea stage (whereas you either have an idea and want to start a business on it or you just want to start a business in general), they would find the first part useful but at the same time it would render the information of the rest of the book relatively futile. In this case, it's best use might actually be as a reference though it reads like a book. Good content, good book.

    Fantastic book about starting and running a business. The style is fast and lightweight, not bogged down by dry explanations or business jargon. This book contains a lot of information for anyone interested in starting or running a business, along with tips and additional resources. I can see why my professor of my Management class recommended this book so highly and why it has remained so popular through the years. I never felt like I was reading a textbook; it felt more like I was reading a qu Fantastic book about starting and running a business.

I never felt like I was reading a textbook; it felt more like I was reading a quick guide or watching a YouTube-style video. It was interesting and engaging and filled to the brim with information, just like a book of its nature should be.

    If you've never read a book on entrepreneurship before, this is really good. I didn't find it as exciting as I thought but I think that's because I read a lot of books like this and have a business background. I was hoping for something different.

    Wide scope, but limited depth. Good, but brief, introduction to the various topics that a new business owner will need to know. I found it to be of limited use, but honestly would have rated it higher if I had read it first. You will need to look elsewhere if what you really need is a more detailed self-help guide.

    Encyclopedic primer on starting your own business. It might just scare you off from an entrepreneurial endeavor after reading it. It also again reminds us of how ubiquitous the government has become in our lives.

    Only read about 1/3 of this book. It's very long, and I don't recommend reading it front to cover. Would be a good reference book. Only read about 1/3 of this book. It's very long, and I don't recommend reading it front to cover. Would be a good reference book.
