My reviews are honest. No sugar coating here.
I'm a fan of the show. I believe that Shark Tank is an American version of Dragons' Den in the UK. I haven't watched the UK version in many years since it is no longer on BBC. I'm not here to compare which version of the show is better, but I am reviewing the audiobook of "Shark Tank Jump Start Your Business."
This is a good book on how to start a business, get funding, and maintain your company. Having real insight from the entrepreneurs that host the show is very helpful in the new way of starting a business. They wrote this book in terms that the common person can understand and practice in the real world. The information is easy to remember.
The best part of the book are Shark Bites, where you get real tips from the six investors from different sectors in their business. It's a basic read for any start ups or an established company.
If you want to know more about the businesses that were feature in each season of Shark Tank, you will enjoy listening to the entrepreneurs in the section of the book of Shark Tales.
They spun tales from both the sharks and the successful contestants of the show to illustrate the importance of the advice that was being provided. The advice provided was both practical and simple to follow.
The most enjoyable moments of everything around the shark tank is the success stories of others. It's hard not to get excited about your own start up when you see these other folks doing it. If they can do it, so can you!!!
He kept the performance about the book, not himself.
F*&^%&ING SHARK TANK. ENOUGH SAID.
READ THIS BOOK IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT STARTING A BUSINESS OR IF YOU ALREADY HAVE. IT'S GREAT!!!
The most memorable moment is taking the ET Test, and its respective explanation.
This is a great book for someone considering to start a business or for someone currently at the beginning stages of running a business.
I expected to learn much more from a book with the 'Shark' name behind it. The reason I say the writing was lazy rather than just lightly informed is because the author/narrator apparently has respectable credentials. All you should expect from this book is a list of subjects you should consider when starting a business, but it provides few answers of how to specifically go about anything.
The presentation and effort put into the book comes across like a middle school student who was required to read a paper he wrote to the rest of the class. This books is very generic and contains information that can be found almost anywhere and everywhere.
To the author: "Studies show" and 'Most entrepreneurs think...' are not good enough. Provide real examples of the points you are making or at least cite your sources. The listeners came to you because they have questions they want answered, not because they want to be asked 1,000 questions by the author, it's lazy.
The best parts are the tiny, cameo-size nuggets of info provided by the Sharks.
Looking forward to future Shark books with some teeth!
EntrepreNerd - Looking for good books on tech, life skills and business
I like the 'shark bites' where they had one of the sharks answer questions about business. Between all those high-powered, successful business men/women, there is a ton of information to be gleaned.
Maybe EntreLeadership by Dave Ramsey. But, this was not quite as dry and a little more entertaining.
The performance was good, but for the 'shark bites', I wish they had the 'shark' actually ready it.
This book is not a rehash of the show. This is practical advice for entrepreneurs where they use examples from the show to illustrate.
Excellent book for the price $0, great audio, this book is very good for rookies for beginners to clear your mind, to clear your path to your new business!!!
Best things in life not always cost you money!!!
If you see a BMW motorcycle cruising down the road, you can be assured I'm listening to a book from Audible!
Great information here, and encouraging. Made me feel like my ideas have merit and success is attainable.
Please don't listen to this. Free is too expensive. Maybe if you have a child who wants to start a lemon aid stand, but other than that, it is worthless.
