Uninspired

This book may be helpful to High school student interested in business, but if you have any experience in the real world it lacks substance. Just as things start to get interesting he changes the subject.

It feels like the author is holding back.

Entrepreneur's Support Group

This is a good book. No revelations but mostly what I would consider an Entrepreneur's support group. Yes, there are items for those wanting to own their own business but the resounding wisdom is discovered when you too are a serial entrepreneur!
