Let's keep it short and sweet. This book is worth your time and money! I am on my way to making my first $100 million as a result of Dan Pena's wit, wisdom and experience. Dan Pena shares his experience in a way that allows you to apply the lessons he's learned in a practical way. Dan Pena shares a practical approach to building wealth that has enhanced my own experience and education. What I learned from this book were things I did not learn from my two years at Harvard Business School! I highly recommend this book.

Get to know the facts about the author and your blood will start to boil.

At best this book is worth what one typically pays for a book. That is to say $19.95 to $29.95. No way is it worth the $500 retail price mentioned on his website. Even at $250 it's a rip-off. Why? Well, the author appears to completely lack any depth of knowledge on his topic. He writes in broad generalities without ever dipping below the surface to explore any of the details. For example, to get financing for a business acquisition he tells the reader to don a nice suit and hit their banker up for a multi-million dollar loan. As if this will work in the real world. It won't. It will only get one laughed out of the building.

Mr. Pena also masquerades as a London investment banker. However, it's impossible to find any corroborating proof of this outside of his website. The really strange and rather comical thing is that if you try to Google his investment bank's staff, they either don't exist outside of his site or are internet marketers and copywriters. What kind of an investment bank employs these types in senior positions? Not a real one.

My hunch is that Mr. Pena is a one hit wonder who happened to be in the right place at the right time back in the mid-1980s, made a few dollars when his board threw him out, and has been coasting off the laurels ever since.

If you've achieved success and still aren't satisfied, this may be the right book for you.
Dan contends that if you aren't satisfied, then you haven't tasted the success you know you should have. He details how he got his head "screwed on straight" and went from growing up a policeman's son in East Los Angeles to owning Guthrie Castle in Scotland by age 40. If Dan's story isn't the American dream come true - I don't know what is. Learning what he did to get to where he is today, was worth considerably more to me than the price of the book.
