From the time I picked up the book I was unable to put it down. The book is well-written, highly informative and Lori's personality shines through each page. If you are a fan of the Shark Tank television show, you'll like the stories Lori shares about working with the other investors and the prospects presenting their pitches. I highly recommend this book!
I am not familiar with Lori Greiner. The bits of the show I've watched, I have seen Mark Cuban and the other two guys talking, along with the older lady and I don't like any of them. I guess I should watch for Ms. Greiner, since she has written what I feel is a very good book. At first I thought this was a quick bit of work to make money by taking advantage of her shark status. Obviously she wants to make money from it, but the reader gets his or her moneys worth; I got the impression she really cares about helping the reader to be successful. When she talks about her experiences, it seems more about helping and not about bragging.
The book is well-organized, with chapters covering all the major aspects of bringing an idea or invention to market. It isn't sugar coated, and it is written in a very personable way that makes it easy to read and understand. Having a business background (but never having tried to market any of my own ideas), my two cents is she provides a sensible, solid foundation for someone who wants to market a product. There's no fluff in the book, it's all practical and wise advice.Read more ›
The book is linear, but explains you will be doing several steps at once. It will require hard work and dedication on your part.
Are you ready? Public speaking a must amongst other listed criteria. Is your idea a hero or zero? How and why with a summary checklist provided. How to make your product, from prototype (design engineers, PMS 365, mock up, 3D printing, plastic manufacturers, injection molding, CAD design...don't know what I'm talking about? It's all in the book:-). Again, at end of chapter a helpful checklist is provided.
A chapter on market research is provided and then she dives into the inevitable, daunting task of funding ( business plans and what you need to know). Without providing her personal Rolodex (dream on people!) she lists where to look for funding with many examples and the pros and cons. Very thorough and enlightening for me. Do you know what a DVRT company is? I didn't either.
Next up. Patents and then Pitching. How tos, what to do...more info with some great success stories. If you are lucky enough to make it this far, Lori continues by sharing manufacturing and packaging secrets. What to consider, overseas options with reputable contact info provided, regulations and laws, quality control, etc.Read more ›

I read a lot of self-help, motivational, and how-to books. Most of them are big on fluff, and low on details. Not so with Lori's book. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Amazon Customer
