While it is true that Mark Cuban's eBook "How to Win at the Sport of Business" is simply a compilation of his blog posts (which are all available online for free), this book has something that his blog doesn't. Editing. I've read a number of his blog posts over the years and a few things are clear to me: 1) Mark is a smart, successful guy. 2) He has a lot of good ideas and information in his head and he's willing to share what he knows with anyone willing to take the time to read what he writes. 3) He's not a great writer. (His blog is filled with typos and weird punctuation issues.)

Thankfully, this book has been edited. The punctuation errors so common on his blog have been fixed, and most typos corrected (though there are still a few, and in some of the storytelling parts he changes from present tense to past tense). The blog posts have also been arranged in a logical way so that this book reads very comfortably as a complete book. That said, my biggest complaint about this book is also the editing. There is one blog post that appears twice (with different titles though). I don't know how someone misses something like that.

Small quirks aside, this book is a good, fast read filled with lots of valuable information. There is by no means anything earth shattering here, but there is plenty of useful information for anyone running a business or thinking of starting one.

Every since I started reading Mark Cuban's weblog, BlogMaverick.com, I've been emailing links of my favorite posts to my employees and business associates. I subscribe to it on my RSS feed and typically read every entry within a matter of hours. So when I saw Mark's entry on Facebook that he had produced an ebook for sale, I bought it without a second thought. I must admit, I read the foreword and was immediately irritated to learn that the ebook was simply a collection of his most popular posts, many of which I'd read 10x over. Oh well, it's $2.99 as I read his first post which he discusses his humble beginnings coming to Dallas as a broke college grad. 5 hours later, I'm finished with the book and I'm convinced that was probably the best $3 I've spent on a book. If you're a blogmaverick reader his old posts have been updated with details and commentary that you will find very interesting and if you're not a blog maverick reader, you will no do doubt find find inspiration and more importantly, practical advice that applies to any business.

What I have always found most impressive about Mark is how little he cares about what people think about and how passionate he is about getting 'IT' right. This book arranges his rags to riches tale in a chronological order that will be of great practical use to any entrepreneur.

One thing I've felt throughout this NBA Lockout and ever more so after reading this ebook is that Mark Cuban must be going absolutely insane sitting in these 'business meetings' over the NBA's labor issues with dinosaurs like Billy Hunter and David Stern. I'll borrow a quote from his post "Twelve Cuban Mantra for Success":

"11. Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered
This is one I got from my partner Todd Wagner. He is right on.

I just read the section "Why entrepreneurs shouldn't use a PR firm" last weekend and I was inspired to send out my own email to local media. I used the format provided and sent one out to all of the local TV stations and newspapers on behalf of my company artconnect.ca

This proved to be an excellent plan! Today a rep from the leading morning TV talk show in my city (Edmonton) called me. They want to feature my company on their show on April 13th. This is HUGE exposure.

Thanks so much for the inspiration. Reading this gave me the confidence to take publicity into my own hands.

Even though my parents aren't Chinese, they still wanted me to become a doctor growing up. I am not a doctor currently. I never wanted to become a doctor and I still don’t. My dream was to become a professional basketball player. Given the high competition and the low success rate, I realized I couldn't do what I so passionately strived for.

Those who can, do; Those who can’t, teach; And those who can’t teach sometimes write a book. This is the logic that helped me decide I should become a basketball coach instead. That way I wasn't giving up on my basketball dream entirely.

I came across Mark Cuban’s book. I took a look at the cover and misread the title. This led me to safely assume this was a book about how to win at basketball. Knowing Mark is a notorious billionaire entrepreneur, but mainly also the outspoken owner of the Mavericks, I decided to buy the book.

To my surprise when it arrived, I realized it was actually a book about winning at the sport of BUSSINESS. Not wanting to let it go to waste, I read it and can tell you, that it was one of the best reads I’ve ever done.

In this book Mark expresses his way of thinking, and explains his motivation and drive. He does this while giving specific examples through various instances off his life. Within this book, you can find great life advice, at a very cost friendly price.

Buying and reading this book will do 3 things:
- Help you get familiar with who Mark Cuban is, as a thinker and a doer.
- Motivate you to work hard and aim for that goal you have.
- Make Mark Cuban even richer.

Although I put my coaching dream on hold until Mark writes a book about how to win in the sport of BASKETBALL, I became motivated and am using his advice in every way possible. I hope that through this book, you too can find that motivation you need.
