A carpenter gets tired of almost losing a finger every time he slices a bagel. Bam! The Bagel Guillotine. A mother is frustrated that her pantry is full of stale food because the packages don't close. Bam! Quick Seals. Howard Schultz notices on a trip to Italy that there are coffee bars on almost every corner. Bam! Starbucks.
None of them had a barrel of cash. None of them had a ton of experience. They had a big idea and the will to follow through.
In The Big Idea, Deutsch draws not only on his own tremendous focus and expertise, but on that of dozens of the successful entrepreneurs whom he has interviewed, to help you create your own enterprise.
From the "Gut Check Moment" to "Mom Power", The Big Idea takes aspiring entrepreneurs along every step of the way. The Big Idea is your road map to the American dream.

THE book on getting your ideas to market
I used to watch THE BIG IDEA religiously (and was on it twice ;) Donny tells it like it is in total realism without all "THE SECRET" or worthless delusional positive thinking books out there. I really miss the show and this is the "nuts and bolts" of what it was all about.
Although Donny comes from wealth the stories he presents of those that struggled to be successful and how they did it is incredibly inspiring.
I wish this book was even longer. Get rid of those books that tell you how to wish for success without any reality based info and get your ideas going by listening to this. Hope he does a follow up, I'll be first on the list to get it.

Nothing more than his EGO and self talk
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The area I felt this was lacking is how to transform yourself, what are the tips, tricks and methods I could learn from him. All I got was his story.... If it was sold as an autobiography I would have maybe provided different feedback. I listened to it and was disappointed, I listened again to ensure I didn't miss anything and I was surprised to learn... I didn't.
Egotistical self talk about how I did it and why I am so great....
