Format: Paperback
This poorly written, self-published book is nothing but a pathetic attempt to generate business for the author's consulting firm, which she hawks in every chapter. She continually alludes to information that is never provided, although she eventually offers to sell the information for an additional fee. Her self-promotion is interspersed with incessant whining about Ohio's "evil" building inspectors, whose only real fault was that they had the audacity to actually enforce the building codes in her state. There is litle information of real value in this book and it will quickly be apparent why it was self-published.

Format: Paperback
This book gives a fair overview of the details involved in opening a restaurant and gift shop, though it appears her main purpose is to get the reader to sign up for her consulting service. The book is not well written and you have to wonder about a tea room owner who misspells Earl Grey tea as "Earl Gray"! However, a reader with absolutely no background in opening a business will find that this book offers some good basic information and will cause you to consider whether opening such a business is really right for you to do.

I must agree with other reviewers, I found more information on line then in this book. Every time I thought I was going to read valuable information I was informed that I could buy the info from the authors! Every chapter us filled with " plugs" for the author's consulting firm! Had I not written my name in this nook as I do all my books I would return it immediately. Shameful and misleading information on content.
