“If you want to make waves, go to Harvard and get your Ph.D. If you want to make money, get your PhE—rush to your nearest bookstore and get Dan Kennedy’s new book—it’s like a four-year course in entrepreneurship!”—Al Ries, co-founder and chairman, Ries & Ries, author of Marketing Warfare and The 22 Immutable Laws of Marketing
“Dan Kennedy’s smart marketing advice has been of great value to our business. I wish I’d read this book back when we started Joan Rivers Products. It certainly would have made our journey that much easier.”—Joan Rivers
“Dan Kennedy can make dreams come true. You’ll get a million dollars worth of value from this book. A must read for entrepreneurs and CEOs.”—Joseph R. Mancuso, founder of Center for Entrepreneurial Management/The Chief Executive Officers Club, author of How to Write a Winning Business Report
“At our conferences we deal with thousands of inventors, authors, manufacturers, and creative people bringing new products to the marketplace. Every one of them would profit tremendously by reading Dan Kennedy’s book. He describes every option for turning sound ideas into fortunes.”—Helene Blake, National Infomercial Marketing Association
“It took several years of creative persistence to finally bring our product to the marketplace. The challenges and obstacles that confronted us made reading your book that much more meaningful. We only wish it would have been published several years ago. It certainly would have made our task much easier!”—Dr. Harvey N. Silverman and Dr. Robert O. Wolf, developers of Perfect Smile Tooth Whitening System™
“As I went through these pages I saw many things I’m already doing. But I was amazed to discover how many things I’m not doing—but will do now! And the Million Dollar Rolodex at the back of the book is worth ten times the price of the book. You could spend $1,000 and attend the seminar, or buy the book and have the seminar at your fingertips forever. I like that idea!”—Murray Raphel, Raphel Marketing, author of Customerization

At roughly 200 pages of material, this book is a potential quick read. But, please don't assume that this is a negative; Mr. Kennedy's book got me thinking about ideas that laid dormant in my mind for quite some time. Although a little dated with regards to technology (the book was written mid-90s, so bear in mind what was happening with the internet). Having said that, I believe this forces the reader to keep on track with ideas and how to bring them to fruition, as opposed to being submitted to the ins/outs of website creation and PPC advertising.
The book is comprised of 13 chapters (chapters 12 and 13 are a summary and "directory", respectively), each related to a certain strategy for developing your idea or selling it to others. Let me say quite clearly, I highly recommend this book for first-time entrepreneurs and the veterans. It covers products, services, common pitfalls to avoid, how to market what you're selling, how to get ideas for new products and even how to "piggyback" off of others. The marketing ideas within this book are almost limitless if you're paying attention.
If you have thought about starting a business, I can't imagine that you could go wrong spending ten (10) bucks and four (4) hours of your time on this one. Make the decision, grab the book, read it, then implement the ideas. I took the author's advice and got the wheels moving as soon as I put the book down this morning.
Josh Kaufman's review said this: "If you read How to Make Millions with Your Ideas and don't come away with a few promising ideas to dramatically improve your profitability or create a new business, you're simply not paying attention." I couldn't agree more.

Do not waste your money on this book. There are far better ones out there.
This is a shame as eCommerce is often a great way to get things started on your way to riches.
If you are looking to learn about more traditional means of starting a business (read: offline), this book does have some good ideas but nothing you've not heard or read before if you have read any business or marketing books from the past ten years.
I'm surprised this book has received the number of endorsements and accolades it has and I wonder now if those were largely obtained by reciprocal deals with other authors rather than actual merit.
If this were 1995, and the internet actually died out, this book would be a god send. However, it's not.
With that said, the author still does a good job at giving nearly 100 case studies, describing all of the different ways the companies became successful, and stresses that in entrepreneurship, there is an even playing field. You don't have to be a college grad to be a millionaire as an entrepreneur.
