A great collection of insights, anecdotes and tips from some very successful e-entrepreneurs. I didn't expect to get much out of this book but I was proved wrong. It provided the right mix of informative and inspiration to fuel my efforts to finally work for myself.

What did you like best about this story?
The author weaves in real life success stories with the concepts of her book.
Have you listened to any of Tania Rodrigues’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I can appreciate the narrator's British accent.
Any additional comments?
I have to admit, before purchasing this book, I felt like I would roll the dice with this one... I fully expected a lot of common two cent advice on how to create a website, register a domain, add a shopping cart to your online store, etc. However, I was pleasantly surprised that this is a book on business with a lot of practical advice for the entrepreneur.
It is well written with easy to understand concepts that are reinforced by real life successful online businesses. It is written for the UK market which makes the section on corporations and taxes less useful for the American listener, but there are many similar business structures and laws in both countries.
Other than requesting an adaptation for US laws, I am very pleased with this book and would recommend it!
I like this book; it’s very well written, and it covers what appears to me to cover many relevant perspectives on online start-up businesses. Lucy has interviewed many successful entrepreneurs and created an engaging collection of stories to illustrate her points. There are no great revelations, just some useful pointers. If you’re interested in starting any sort of new business, read the book!

I'm not usually disappointed at the books I buy but this is an exception. complete waste of time nothing but stories of how current successful startups have become successful. Definitely not a how-to guide.. The title is misleading. If I could get my money back I would. Don't waste you time..
