This is a great book if your just getting into business, however if you already know the basics you may want to try something a little deeper. There are quite a few questions this book just won't answer so make sure you go to class. As a supplement to in class lectures and hands on study you will be able to gain alot from reading this text. It offers alot of valuable information in an easy to understand format. I hope you like reading though because it tends to get a little dry.

This book is an awesome read. It will cover most of the mistakes that small business owners tend to make. I have never been so impressed by a text book. This text is an easy read and you will walk away enlightened and heavily equipped to start your own business. Depending on your level of education and experience, you may be able to skip a few topics, but this book will come in handy for any business owner at any level. This book has blessed me beyond words.

I recently used this book for an online class I was taking at a local community. I regret not taking enough business classes while in college. This books is full information. If you pace yourself and read the chapters you'll know alot. You'll learn how to do business valuations, cash flow management etc. It assumes you have little business experience and gives you years of business school experience. I know as much or more then most business majors I stay in contact with when I graduated.

Compared to the previous version, this has removed the kinks or maintaining a good flow. You'll also learn the basics to a business plan and how to do real financial projections. This will make a contractor or small store owner; very powerful at growing and managing their business. I'm so glad I took this course that required the 9th version of the text. The previous class used the 8th and had problems comprehending the process and how to build off of things. The ninth is the best.

As the President and CEO of FranchiseInterviews.com, I have read many books relating to entrepreneurship. I think the authors did a fantastic job at writing this book. They use many examples and cases to help you easily understand the topics.

I highly recommend this book for aspiring entrepreneurs as well as schools that offer a program in entrepreneurship.

This book is the prescribed textbook for a small business management unit I am taking at university. I have just read the first two chapters, and I must say it is written very well. The author comes across as down to earth, and the contents is motivational and easy to read.
I highly recommend this book for those with a desire to make a break from the shackles of working for a corporation, and not only want to be their own boss, but to also make a stack of cash along the way.

I love the format. Lecture riddled with real world business examples. the review section at the end of each chapter are like clif notes summarizing it all up and the though provoking questions I found mentally stimulating.

I saved over $80 by using your rental program. I only wish I knew about it two years ago because it would have saved me plenty of money. I like the fact that the book did not have alot of writing and underlining in it. I only would purchase new books, because of not wanting to be annoyed with notes, highlighting and underlining. I never write in my books and they all look new.

I will pass on your rental program to others. Thank you so much for saving me lots of money.

I've had to buy alot of business textbooks in the past, but because this book has been such a good resource, I plan on keeping it and not reselling. It is one of the best all around resources if one wants to get a small business up and running. It has enough breadth to understand the total small business picture, but it doesn't get mired in weeds. I wish more textbooks were written in this style.
