I checked my bookstore and my library every week for 2 months before coming to Amazon to get this book.
He's a great guy.
If you asked me what I thought about this book, I'd say it's a great book if you want to know what it takes to be a Great Entrepreneur. Lots of practical insight. Easy to understand without being condenscending. It only makes him MORE likeable, and it lets you really understand his mindset.
If you asked me if this was a great "Biography", I'd tell you absoutely not.
That's just not what this book is.
I was hoping for a chronological accounting of how he built his companies and sold them.
None of that is in this book.
This is a well written book, and if you are looking for "how does the mind of an entrepreneur work" then this is a great book. But just be aware that it's NOT a traditional biography.
I love the shows' concept and enjoy seeing people make their dreams come true with a little help from the Dragons.
Some of my favorite shows, however, are the episodes about the Dragons themselves.
Who are the Dragons really? How did they start their careers? How do they conduct themselves in business?
As a business owner and entrepreneur I am always fascinated about the success of others and look for tips to apply to my own business.
When I saw Robert's book DRIVEN for the first time I was very curious to peek inside and discover more about him.
Robert takes you through his thought process as to what it takes to succeed in business.
He offers tips about things you should do in various situations but more importantly he explains the "mindset" successful business people like him have.
I thoroughly enjoyed DRIVEN because it answers the types of questions I would ask Robert if I had the opportunity to have lunch with him.
Wouldn't you like to go to lunch with a Dragon and get the answers to your business questions? Here's your chance!
I know most people do not like to write in books, at least that is what I have heard, but in this case, I made notes, wrote in the margins and bookmarked all the places I thought would help me as I launched yet another business. I read about all the things I was doing incorrectly, I read about the things I was doing right, and I read about the unending passion that is key to what you do for your business. I am absolutely ecstatic about this book and am now in the process of reading it again. As a matter of fact, I was not able to add this review to the Canadian site so decided to write it here - this book is a real winner and I am certain to share it with everyone I know.
Robert, you have hit the mark, one of the best books I have read in a long time - full of truths which I hope will help hundreds, if not thousands, of others go in the right direction and be successful in business. I know for sure Rules 2 and 3 are false for me - but what the heck, you can't take the passion out of the entrepreneur at any age.

Struggling to get through it. Very dry writing, hard to stay focused on it. Some good info if you can stay focused. Robert is a better business man than an author for sure. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Donna J.
