-GUY KAWASAKI, Author, The Art of the Start

I found that the pages flew by. I never found myself awed by his intelligence or genius but I often found myself amazed by the simplicity of his advice that I may not have thought of had they not been put on paper in front of me. He makes you take a step back from the busy-ness and status quo of the small-business-owner's day and gives you advice that you need to hear but probably won't if you ask those closest to you. So basically, I found this to be a helpful, refreshing, and easy read.
Finally, and this is what makes this book truly a success in my mind, since the advice is so specialized so as to apply only to upper management in major corporations, the concepts that he discusses apply to anybody who will ever be in a position of leadership.Read more ›
Bob speaks from the heart and the book connects. The lessons learned from successes and blunders in a small business communicate dearly and are very effective. It is a good read, but one that sticks even after the first pass. I do not have to review some checklist to know several issues I can address immediately to make my business better.
I was greatly encouraged after reading the book. It has helped me better see the areas I need to work on to bring my business into focus.
