    With the enabling power of technology, turning a great idea into a successful business does not have to be merely a dream. It can be a reality.

    Would you try another book from Ara Bagdasarian and Nick Gustavsson and/or Wayne Shepherd?

    No, very basic. I guess it's about starting a business, but this is even before 101, more like an overview.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Ara Bagdasarian and Nick Gustavsson again?

    No


    What didn’t you like about Wayne Shepherd’s performance?

    It was actually ok, just the story killed the performance.


    What character would you cut from The Lemonade Stand?

    No characters


    Any additional comments?

    If you are out of school with no business experience, this book may be for you. It would be a better fit for a HS student starting a summer business to buy a car.

    What disappointed you about The Truth About Starting a Business?

    I guess I'm not too excited about a book that appears to be common sense. I always dream of starting a business, and was hoping some books would help spark an idea. This book is more like the steps taken to get a business up and going, and not what it takes to start a business. SO most will find this a great book if they already have an idea and the drive, I just don't have that yet.


    What was most disappointing about Bruce Barringer’s story?

    It was just Dry!


    How could the performance have been better?

    Not really sure, it just lost my interests in the beginning. I think the book kept playing and I just went dreaming off into other thoughts instead of listening.


    What character would you cut from The Truth About Starting a Business?

    Not sure, I just didn't pay attention to the book after I started. Sorry I have to give a bad review, but it cost me a credit, and just didn't match what I was looking for.


    Any additional comments?

    This book could be great for you, I gave it low scores, because it just didn't strike an interests in me at the beginning.
