I rarely write a bad review, but this one irked me.
There's some good tidbits of info in this book, but the first 30 minutes involves a haranguing of the reader, assuming you are a spoiled, egotistical, lazy brat who needs deflating before the information can be delivered. I'm not sure if its supposed to be funny or addressing a real social issue. Either way I paid for business advice, not a smarmy 30 minute talking down, when the point could have been made in 5 minutes max.
(I like when he says in a condescending tone "here's some free advice". We'll no its not quite free is it?)
Having said that, once the half hour of abuse ended there was some good information here and there that allowed me to get through to the end.
Overall though, if you're looking for a good, new business book, I'd recommend Super Rich instead. He delivers the same down to earth business advice without the condescending and passive aggressive attitude.

Would you listen to Never Get a 'Real' Job again? Why?
Yes, so much good information. As you work through idea's for a business listen to it again to pick out the pieces that apply.
What other book might you compare Never Get a 'Real' Job to and why?
The E-myth by Michael Gerber. Both explain the realities of running a business. The other is the 4 hour work week which expalins how to stream line business
