Publisher's Summary

This is my autobiography. It's not a novel; it's my life story where I want to motivate and influence others. It shows lots of emotion, both highs and lows, how to succeed - it shows how I turned 37p into 100 million pounds. I have dyslexia and ADHD which is highlighted as you listen to the book. Due to this I often get sidetracked and have to go back to the original part of the story; again, this is highlighted. I also use some unsavory words, not in a malicious way merely showing my frustrations when not everything goes my way. The book took me just over three years to finish.

My New Favourite Book!

A frank, unflinching & honest account of what it takes to build a market leading independent business from scratch. A masterclass in both sales and marketing from Neville, full of common sense, contrarian investment gems and razor sharp business acumen. A rollercoaster ride with amazing achievements and truly dark times also.

Neville is a genuine national treasure and this book is a blueprint in how to succeed, not just in business but in life.

I still don’t get it

I spent a few hours reading this before initially giving up. Beyond someone who clearly has a work ethic to beat anyone else’s, I didn’t find much else in it. I re-read the reviews and gave it another go as I had a long journey so time to kill and still no real negative comments of any kind.

The book is humorous in places and is inspirational for someone who has achieved so much but little to take away in terms of practical application, other than a few examples of how best to make the most of your money. As a management or customer related text (which I had hoped it would be), there was very little.

Sorry to be the outlier here. If you have lots of time on your hands and want a story of rags to riches, then this may be for you. But if you want an audiobook to learn practical steps of business devt, I’d look elsewhere.

More story than guidance

First of all credit where it's due for creating a multimillion pound business over time. This is more a biography than a guide to creating wealth. I think we all know that with hard work and determination we can create it. Not taking away the impressive work put in here, but as usual with these books it helped MASSIVELY to start buying/selling/renting from the house prices in the 70s 80s & 90s.
Felt I'd learnt more about his life rather than HOW to actually do something.
Another annoyance is the constant "side tracked" "back" parts, there's no need as the book flows well without them.
In all I'd say good, impressive, but sadly disappointed

Inspirational

What an incredible journey this lovely family have been on, it just shows how passion and belief and a genuine feeling to want to help others can bring happiness and wealth to everyone. loved this book, and if Neville happens to read these reviews then I would like to ask, how much do you want for that old unused piece of scrim? 😊

A very inspirational autobiography,

After meeting Neville a few months ago at an evening event organised by the Chambers of Commerce, I found him a very down to earth guy, with many stories to tell on his life's journey. He told me about his book and I was intrigued.
The following week I purchased this book as an audible because I can take in while driving and working so perfect for me.

Following his life from nothing to having millions, then almost losing it all to getting even more, is amazing,

I take away from this book a need to be more driven and hardworking in my own life if I want to be successful.
A very customer focused hard working guy with down to earth strong morals, I loved it.

Fascinating and totally absorbing !!

I couldn’t not leave a review for this book. A brilliantly written and detailed insight into Neville and Marilyn’s journey through their personal and business life together. Treat yourself.....this is one of the best books I’ve listened to. Thank you Neville.

Riveting

Is this a great story, a great business book, or a great self-help book?
In my opinion, it's all three.
Neville and Marilyn's story will both move you to tears and have you laugh out loud, but beneath all the narrative there is rock-solid advice for us entrepreneurs - and a great deal of that crosses over into non-business, too - that's the self-help factor.
I absolutely loved this book - thanks Neville.

Excellent, will definitely listen to again!

Inspirational story that shows the importance of never giving up as most would, but equally having an exit strategy as this can be just as (if not more) lucrative as Neville shows.

Easy listen and great story

Easy listen and great story that peels the curtain back behind growth and turbulence of a great business. Perhaps a 'slightly romantic' and single minded view at times, but a worthy listen.
