    Story
    (17)

    James Caan is one of Britain's most successful entrepreneurs. Dropping out of school at just sixteen, he started his business life with no qualifications and two pieces of advice: 'Observe the masses and do the opposite' and 'Always look for opportunities where both parties benefit'. Armed with just his father's wisdom, his own unique charm and the Yellow Pages, James Caan built a market-leading business with a turnover of more than #130 million from a broom cupboard.

    Jason says: "A business bio from a back seat perspective"
    "Excellent book"
    Overall

    It's weird that a business book could be so personal and emotional. I found his life just fascinating and full of good business lessons.

  • The First Billion is the Hardest: Reflections on a Life of Comebacks and America's Energy Future

    Story
    (45)

    From a businessman who is extraordinarily humble yet is considered one of the world's most visionary, The First Billion Is the Hardest is both a riveting account of a life spent pulling off improbable triumphs and a report back from the front of the global energy and natural-resource wars - of vital interest to anyone who has a stake in America's future.

    Eric says: "A Guide for a U.S. National Energy Policy."
    "Not for most ppl."
    Overall

    I think Mr. Pickens wrote this book with himself as the target audience. It's kind of jumbly and sounds like it's written by a really old man. (sorry but he really is old) Much of the book is dedicated to his business strategy which is not really applicable to most ppl who earn less than $30million a year.
