    "Thank you"

    Solid book. I wouldn't take it as word of god but as a reference tool. You know those days where you are trying to figure out things such as "should I saturate a certain market with advertising or should I try to go broad and appeal a little to everyone " well it doesn't give you the exact answer but it will give you more information so you can feel more confident in your choice. I will be keeping this on my "frequently used" shelf.

    "perfect book"

    Excellent book. It's easy to follow. I loved the real life examples. It starts from the beginning, each chapter building on the last one. It lays out each of the pieces of a strong foundation for any small business.

    "exactly what I expected from this audio book!"

    a quick and comprehensive overview of what is most important in starting your own business. I thought the points were good and explained well enough to get a proper notion on what all is involved for your business.

    "Not much more you pack into 45 minutes."

    Great intro read. Not in depth about any single topic but the author lays out very well the major steps and subjects you need to consider when starting a new business.
