I purchased this as a gift for someone who is starting an on-line business from home. The complexities of individual needs in terms of business mean that much of any guidebook is not of interest to the potential entrepreneur. The author speaks at length of his experience and success, which may be uplifting but is not helpful. Still, there are sections that were very helpful. Read through the contents carefully before you buy.

A new business is like having a baby. It takes the same care, time and attention that a newborn needs.
The book is easy to read and covers every aspect of how-to start a successful business. There's tips on collecting money from clients, keeping good records, why personal hygenie is a must (hard to believe people will show up to a job interview dirty and smelling of cigarette smoke), and why you should be nice to your competition.
The book is easy to read and covers every aspect of how-to start a successful business. Best of all, it teaches you how to keep your business thriving and keep your sanity at the same time! I recommend this book.

I have made it through this book a little ways and have found some basic information. However, the cliché's, etc., do not really provide the actual "start-up" business information that I believe a serious business person needs. It is a good enough starting book, but I guess I was looking for a more true to life business start-up book. But if you are a "first time" home business person, I would recommend the book. Thanks!!
