This book gives a great background on how to present your ideas when writing up your business plan. Especially for those needing venture capital the book provides sound advice on how to convince others that your business is worth supporting. Has an excellent section on financing and shows some sample business plans.

Boring, hard to read, lots of writing in it, didn't work for the business I was hoping to start. Can't give it a good review.

I use Mr Bang's book The Market Planning Guide all the time. This book is not as useful, its a bit dated and incomplete.

Here's the recommended course reading for leaders of existing businesses or new businesses alike, according to mentors in the SBA (U.S. Small Business Administration). I particularly enjoyed the advice on measuring cash flow, using plain terms, demystifying the finer details of book keeping.

This is a basic study on the multitude of tasks required to run a serious operation on a small scale and an indispensable resource when combined with the guidance of a professional.
