The Real Deal is the incredible story of James Caan's remarkable life. From his childhood as a Pakistani immigrant in Brick Lane in the 1960s and his decision not to go into the family business, to the phenomenal success of his first company, this book traces James's journey to both financial and personal maturity. It deals with his disappointment upon realising his goals too early, and offers a frank account of what success at 30 really means.
The Real Deal brings us bang up to the present day, including the truth about his role on Dragons' Den, what his charity work in Lahore, Kashmir, and Kosovo means to him, and how he has come to completely re-evaluate the true value of money.
This rag-trade-to-riches story is an intimate account of an exceptional journey. It is a searingly honest exploration of James's path to success and a source of inspiration for anyone looking to emulate his extraordinary business skills.

"Great story shame about the editing"
Really great story he goes into lots of detail and gets really quite personal. I have a lot more respect for him now as a businessman.
The one issue is the editing. I can only assume the physical book had pull quotes as he seems to repeat himself for no reason. His voices changes quite a bit which I'm not sure if it's to do with different recording days or particularly emotional parts of the story.
Overall a great story, very insightful and great for people in sales or business.
"Really impressed with the depth and sincerity"
After recently being very impressed by Duncan banatynes book I thought I'd give James caans a go, and I wasn't disappointed. He's from humble roots but truly made it all from nothing. He makes it seem very achievable. Great read
Very compelling and a real insight into the mind of someone I respect. Worth the money.
This book was pure entertainment from start to finish!! Buy this book and you will not be disappointed.
A great story - I finished this in a couple of days, listening a very opportunity.
"Excellent candid autobiography"

"Amazing and Inspiring"
Couldn't stop listening,
Found him very inspiring
Would suggest to anyone who is thinking of starting their own business
I think the narrators have alot to do with the audiobooks and having james do it was amazing. I ususally listen to the books in the cart and to be honest, I could hardly get out of the car when this was on.
A great story from his roots to the top, the ups and downs, really exciting and some great tips for any business owner.
He read really good, ten out of ten
Yes. I can honestly say I could hardly put it down or stop listening. It was everything that I want to hear from a top businessman, some real sessons, very inspiring but he I found him very humble and I think you get that with his humanitarian work.
One of the best audiobooks, I have ever listened to, couldnt recommend it enough.
"Great listen, currently on my second run through"
I love the honest account of James Caan's life. There's lots of useful business tips in there as well.
Excellent book, really interesting and very well read. Definitely would recommend listening to this book
