It is a gold mine. This is such a good book. It is a diary, a guide, a how-to and it’s an interesting novel all in one. The writing style is engaging, the anecdotes make it so relatable and I was laughing and nodding at some of them. The illustrations depicting Lagos landmarks and scenes are an added bonus.
I wish I’d had something like this to read before I moved back to Nigeria in ‘07.
It’s a must-read for anyone who is thinking about entering the Nigerian business space from the diaspora in particular because it offers real insights to real issues which appear simple to people who have been here, but will confound anyone who has been away from Nigeria for some time. On a more general note, it’s a great guide for would-be entrepreneurs anywhere because it shares real experiences and growth as well as challenges one might encounter.
I particularly enjoyed the organic progression in the story. None of those gaps that have you wondering how the characters moved from A to Z and no details in-between.
I’ve enjoyed reading this and I’m looking forward to future offerings from the authors.
The fact they are giving back is the real nugget in the story and the man who calls his mother at 7am, a lesson that one must do better
