Format: Paperback
This book is so refreshing to read! Turns out you do not have to have three degrees and years of experience to run a small business, it helps, but Art walks you through common sense steps he has developed and learned that really make the difference between surviving and thriving and creating the business you want. His "nuggets" are indeed golden and reading this book and putting it's ideas into action will make you more money. I have read many business books and most have had something to offer, this book is simply too valuable to miss and more fun to read!

Format: Paperback
If you have ever looked at the daunting task of improving your bottom line and asked yourself, "Where do I start?", then this book is for you! It is pure "straight talk" that is easy to understand regardless of your education, background, or position in the company. It illustrates the need to constantly improve and provides the motivation and infomation "nuggets" to do it. This book will make you better at evaluating, planning, and executing in your business. You will read it in a night, but remember it forever!

The principals covered in this book are not only critical to surviving in today's economic climate, but essential. Having been to several of Art Freedman's presentations, I can tell you his passion and excitement for making money at retail is directly translated to this book.

I thought the book got to the point and didn't waste my time. I made a lot of notes as I read each chapter and have now ordered 5 more books for my Managers.

Format: Paperback
This book has tons of ideas that will increase sales. It is full of things that are easy to forget about, or ignore, when running a business. The best part of this book is that the stories and ideas are REAL- simple suggestions and anecdotes that even the busiest retailer will have time to implement. I highly recommend this book.

I've seen Art speak in person and he writes the same way he speaks...with a PASSION for Retail. He constantly offers up what he calls "nuggets" throughout the book. These Nuggets will challenge you and make you smarter, plus he suggests that you take them one of two at a time. He knows that nothing will happen if you just read this book. You need to commit to DOING something with the knowledge and experience he's taken the time to write about in this book.

Don't just read this book.... but read it with a pen and pad. Commit to yourself that you WILL use the nuggets and take action on the items he suggests. Involve your Team-if you have one. Roll out the ideas on a consistent but measured basis. Don't "throw up" on them, but rather give them time to absorb and exact the business changing tenants offered up in this book. That way, should you ever run into Art somewhere you'll be able to tell him what a difference it made in your business and ultimately in your life! Nothing will make him happier!
