In particular, I liked this book because it is a first-hand account. It definitely includes lots of tips and what not, but its not a guide or a textbook. Its a real-life sorta autobiography of how a very successful businessman started many successful (and a couple not so successful) companies. I don't want to read about how someone "thinks" I should start a business - I want to read about how someone else actually did it, and what I can learn and be inspired by from that. This is it.
So why did this book leave me hungry? Well for one it was a great book that was hard to put down. But secondly, one of Warren's most successful companies is Popcorn, Indiana - and after reading night after night about kettle corn, I literally put the book down to go to Walgreens and buy a bag (see my uploaded picture, if you don't believe me). Yes its as good as he says. I have no affiliation with the author other than the fact that I'd love to work for or with him one day - he is a true real business leader for our times. I'm an active reviewer on Amazon and I was anxious to review this book as soon as I finished reading it. A must read for any entrepreneur or wanna-be.
Keep reading...If you want to be an entrepreneur or think you are one -- this book is a must. Feel and smell the excitement of starting up; experience the frustration of setbacks;celebrate the elation of success and touch the sadnees of defeat. And above all feel be inspired and motivated to get back into the ring; into the saddle and do it all over again -- never looking back except to learn -- keeping the momentum; always moving forward and never giving up.
If you understand you are a true entrepreneur and this book is for you -- if you dont -- read it anyway -- you will still be inspired.
