2.0 out of 5 stars shallow February 19, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Seems like they took a bunch of bylines from magazines about good business ideas and slapped a cover on them. This book is no more useful than a list of the suggested businesses would be. Pass on this book and maybe do a web search, or buy the book an see if you like any ideas then find a book on that specific topic with some actual meat in it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hit the library instead February 2, 2011
I picked this up looking for ideas about what kind of small business to start and unfortunately, while this book had a general list of the usual suspects of food businesses-it lacked innovative ideas and the ideas I was interested in looking into were so over-generalized and under-researched the info given was barely useful.

Peruse it at your local library and invest those precious dollars you'll save in books that will actually help you launch your business, like the NOLO series books.

1.0 out of 5 stars You really can get anything published.... July 25, 2013
I ran across this book while searching the library for books on starting a (non-food) related business. I was drawn to it by the "under $5000" aspect, and wondered how they could start a business with so little capital. Not surprisingly, they don't. None of the articles I sampled had a budget that demonstrated how you could do this. In fact, some of the articles mentioned how a basic expense would have to be per-owned (want to start a farm? You need to already own the land if you want to stay under $5000...well, duh)

Beyond this, the advice was virtually worthless, bordering on common sense (Did you know you can sell old stuff on ebay? I for one didn't...) Each article is about 4 pages long, and tells you basically nothing most people do not already know. The book briefly discusses food safety and regulations on page 1 and 2 of the introduction, which points you to some government websites and advises you to contact local government to find out about requirements in your area. This is probably the most important part of opening a food related business, and likely to be the most mysterious to a person just starting out.

As a practical aid in starting your business: 0/5
As a "idea" book to help you find the right business for you, which you can then research in depth: 1/5
