Refreshing and Practical++++

Martha Stewart's book, The Martha Rules, is a refreshing business book written and read by an intelligent, experienced enterpreneur at the center of, and in the forefront of, American business culture. If you're just starting up a new business, or are an experienced business owner, you will get many practical tips, suggestions and ideas from this book. This is not a book about financial management or organizational theory; it's a book about developing a winning combinations of techniques that will be useful to just about any enterprenuer. Whether you're business is small or large, I highly recommmend this book to anyone that takes business seriously.

Great Job, Martha!

Came away disappointed

I'm big admirer of Martha Stewart. Impressed by her attention to detail, her drive and ambition. Thus was really looking forward to listening to this title but came away disappointed. It started fine but soon became a PR piece for her website, her magazine, her "high quality" pieces at Kmart, her organization. After awhile it felt as if I was listening to a child spweing out how great she was/is and see, look at what I have accomplished oh and hear me pronounce all these French deserts I can make.

Her Baking Cookbook that is in stores now is excellent and it is that kind of attention to detail I was anticipating here. But what "I" got was "here at Martha Stewart we're great because..."

Sorry Martha, you came across as a boastful salesperson. I greatly admire you but not on this one.
