What I normally don't like about these types of books is their chest-thumping, self-congratulatory nature. "6 Reasons Why I'm So Smart" and "Gee, Aren't I The Bees Knees" might as well be the chapter titles. But this book is different. These entrepreneurs lay it on the line -- warts and all. They generously and unabashedly share the good as well as the bad. Making this book not only infinitely more interesting to read, but also 10 x's more valuable. As any business owner worth his/her salt will tell you: you learn much more from your mistakes than you do from your successes. Mike Capuzzi and friends have done would-be entrepreneurs a huge favor by not only inspiring us, but also pointing out where the land mines are hidden. You will get more practical know-how by reading this book than by going to business school.

As a new entrepreneur I suffer from this well known condition called;Analysis/Paralysis. I mean after all, in this day and age with the 24 HR news channels and the Internet-- its easy to get lost in the information super-highway.

You see, I never get my ideas off the ground because I'm too busy trying to learn more, researching more, or "think about it" more...

However, Dream, Inc cuts through all the noise and the clutter. It tells the stories of several Philadelphia area entrepreneurs who over come obstacles in their personal and professional lives and how each one of these people stayed committed to their cause. You will discover how, by taking massive action, they were able leap over these obstacles and reach their personal and financial goals.

Dream, Inc is an easy read. With all the interesting and motivational success stories I was able to finish the book in one sitting. But don't be fooled, there's a lot of "meat" in this book and I was able to pull out at least 20 new ideas. Ideas I will use to help me jump start my new business and conquer "analysis/paralysis" once and for all.

America is the great land of opportunity but lots of us get discouraged way too early. What I really liked about this book is that the profiled entrepreneurs showed their "warts", fears and failures. All too often people thing that "they" (successful entrepreneurs) are lucky or "born that way" or something special.

What Dream Inc shows is that the only realy difference between an entreprenurial wannabee and a successful one is the "take action, it's OK if I make a mess" mentality demonstrated in this book. While there is some specific advice in the book I'd say to read it mainly for the inspiration of these ordinary folks making it big in their industry/business.

If you need that 'boost' pick up this book. You'll probably see yourself in at least one of the many folks profiled.

If only Dream, Inc. was written 7 years ago! Let's face it, every new entrepreneur makes mistakes, it's part of the process. Had I read some of the "nuggets of wisdom" in this book before I started my business, I would have saved a ton of money! As one of the contributing authors I was excited to read the stories of the other 31 author/entrepreneurs - what inspired them to start their business and how they grew to various levels of success. Two words best describe Dream, Inc: inspirational and wisdom. If you've ever dreamed of starting your own business, and want to hear "the rest of the story" from 32 people (just like you!) that took the plunge, then get a copy of this book! You won't be disappointed.
