It's unfortunate for them because they could earn the equivalent of a Doctorate degree from the School of Hard Knocks in just a few hours of reading this extraordinarily well written and entertaining story of the adventures of a highly successful serial entrepreneur.
I couldn't put it down. Loved it. Highly recommend it for all future Masters of The Universe.
I really enjoyed reading this book and I will tell you why!
Neil Senturia addresses some unusual topics of advice for the entrepreneur, all very practical.
Like, "Return all Email and Phone Calls - at least 90% of them that are reasonable". When you spend time as an entrepreneur in any field, you will start realizing that the whole world is just one small place. Someone who is your customer today may turn out to be your supplier tomorrow or you may have some dealings with them in another context. There is nothing that poisons relationships like arrogance and they will be waiting for you on your way down if you ignore them on your way up!
What is very valuable about this book is that all advice is presented in the form of discrete rules with numbers, somewhat grouped together but always making sense and practical!
Neil has had many adventures as an entrepreneur and he uses all of the lessons he learned to impart points of view seldom found in other Business advice books.
The only thing I found a bit distracting about this book is Neil's forays into many, many entrepreneurial activities. If you are looking for focused advice on how to be a real estate entrepreneur or a software company entrepreneur or some other industry entrepreneur, this book is not for you. If you are all of them, a resounding Yes!
Highly recommend it!
