I thought the first quarter of the book was pretty basic, anyone with experience in a business planning class will have gone through similar material, but it was a good review. The rest of the book is made up of Norm's meandering through his business experiences and advice.

The Ottoman world was nothing like an exotic fairy tale featuring tyrant sultans, mean pashas, and ill-fated harem women. The true stories of genuine sultans and princes are a bit more complicated and no less exciting. Incredible facts about this empire still surprise anyone who starts discovering those stories. You’ll find out that, for quite a while, this Islamic state was effectively ruled by women, and that’s just the beginning.

Often times the brief few sentences you get as you tour through a castle or in a pamphlet just give you very basic facts- the more you know the more interesting the country is! I would definitely recommend for anyone traveling there, it gives a true sense of the history, people, and culture of the land and as I learned on my trip, their history is definitely NOT just in their past,

The author seems sympathetic toward the people of Mexico, but also lets the reader know about their weaknesses and foibles. A country with great a great future if only it allows itself to have it, Mexico is important for we Notre Americas to know about.
