Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Moss proposes fresh ways to succeed in a corporate environment using the four-step HUNT method he established in his first book, a primer on entrepreneurship called Starting from Scratch: Harness what you have, Underestimate your obstacles, Notice your network and Take the first (or next) step. The book's four parts cover each leg of the acronym, and each of the 18 chapters are tied to a specific individual's success story on the frontlines of such companies as Ogilvy Public Relations, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Warner Music, Coca-Cola and GE. Narratives are mined for principles ("Keep it simple") and practical tips (put off casual reading in favor of "thinking through the coming meeting") while keeping a steady eye on the big picture-moving forward and building momentum. Conversational and straightforward, this guide to sensible career advancement should prove useful and encouraging for those new to the workforce, as well as those stuck on the lower rungs of the corporate ladder.

It's like reading Dale Carnegie's "How to Stop Worrying and Start Living," but with examples from modern day that are more relate-able. The book has a great message that, if we are passionate about what we do, then we don't have to worry about what we reap from it.

This well written book is advice and encouragement for the new or would be entrepreneur. I thought it was arranged well by the author and did contain some useful strategies for success. I thought some of the chapters could have spent a little more time relating to those who were trying to achieve success rather than those who already had, and at times I found the subject matter to get a bit repetitive. For anyone who is looking for advice on how to begin setting up their own business, this may not be the book for you, as there is not a lot of concrete steps to follow. If you are looking for a way to help grow your mindset and be more receptive to possibilities as an entrepreneur then look no farther. This book teaches the reader to have a positive outlook and take small steps toward success and sustainability. Over all I thought this was an informative and intelligent read.

This book does contain a little decent info, but nothing earth-shattering. Overall, it is a bit lacking in real, usable information. However, if you are looking for a lightweight primer on creating more income, then you may get some motivation from the examples in the book.

Could not put this book down! Everybody reads alot of good ideas and many are soon forgotten.....Wes gave me something to remember with "Wes's Worry Less Tips" one of which will stay with me forever - conquer worry with "worst case scenario". The one "tip" alone is worth purchasing this book many times over.

I didn't read this book because I want to make lots of money. Someone else recommended it to me. But I have to say, I have gained so much benefit from reading it. The author rights in an easily readable way. He gives very practical suggestions. From the book, there are 3 suggestions that I read that have changed the way I do things. I'm so glad I read it. Although, I will never be the head of coca cola, or any other major organisation, and I don't wish to give up my time to be in a role like that. That hasn't negated the benefit for me in reading it.

Wes Moss has a theory - you can be an entrepreneur, even if you don't have your own business. He uses a series of case studies to show that even when working for others you can apply an entrepreneurial mind set to become successful. The case studies are real people's stories. Not all of them are young, but all of them realise at some stage in their careers that have an opportunity to do better. It's a heartwarming read, and very encouraging. At the end of each case study Moss draws out the main "lessons" and shows how you can apply them to your own situation. Very inspiring.

THIS is one of the best written books I'll ever read! I learned so much and Wes Moss did a really great job putting this together. I love to learn and I certainly will be implementing as many of these principles to my life as I can. Thank you Wes!
