    Still in his early 30s, Chris is on the verge of completing a tour of every country on earth – he’s already visited more than 175 nations - and yet he’s never held a “real job” or earned a regular paycheck. Rather, he has a special genius for turning ideas into income, and he uses what he earns both to support his life of adventure and to give back. In The $100 Startup, he tells you how to lead of life of adventure, meaning and purpose - and earn a good living.

    What disappointed you about The $100 Startup?

    Mr. Guillebeau has selected a wonderful title for his book but that's about it. The content is just not there so instead he repeats himself endlessly, it's really depressing. It goes somehting like this, "Sally gave up her job which she hated and began doing something that she loves but she didn't spend any money doing it...now she's a big success." Just repeat that to yourself 20 times and change the name with each repitition and you have basicly read the book.

    My question is who is writting these glowing reviews and why do they all sound so suspiciously similiar? I really can't believe that anyone who didn't fall off the back of a turnup truick yesterday truely found this book to be a "good read, inspirational, or actionable".


    What was most disappointing about Chris Guillebeau’s story?

    There were stroies told my many people but they were all the same story.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Chris Guillebeau and Thomas Vincent Kelly ?

    Don't know.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    I am angry that this man has stuffed the reviews of his rediculous book with slanted empty headed and obviously false commentary.

    This BusinessWeek best seller from esteemed marketing guru Mark Stevens is an entertaining and useful guide to improving the way businesses promote themselves. Stevens attacks conventional marketing strategies with infectious zeal, making it crystal clear that most companies might as well throw their money away.

    Sorry, I can't agree with the other reviewer. I found the narrator to be almost as angry and contemptuous as the author. I love the subject and could have endured if I was getting something new and insightful but alas.

  • The Four Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive: A Leadership Fable

    As CEO, most everything that Rich O'Connor did had something to do with at least one of the four disciplines on his famed "yellow sheet." Rich never suspected that it would become the blueprint of an employee's plan to destroy the firm. Best selling author Lencioni brings us a fable that focuses on a leader's crucial role in building a healthy organization.

    Sorry,

    This book does not belong in the business section. Admittedly, I was only able to struggle through the first third of the book, but it so poorly written that the pain became unbearable.

    When I read for business, I want the information to be short, punchy, and illuminating. This book strives to be a novel but lacks any of the prerequisite elements of a good tale.
