Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of acclaimed business books, The 80/20 Principle and The 80/20 Individual (both published in audio by Bolinda), comes a book that shares the secrets of his success so that you, too, can identify and enrich yourself from "Stars".
Richard Koch has made a career out of spotting "Star businesses" - and has made millions from them. Star businesses are ventures operating in a high-growth sector - and are the leaders of their niche in the market. Stars are rare. But with the help of this book and a little patience, you can find one - or create one yourself.
This is a vital book for any budding entrepreneur or investor (of grand or modest means). It is also invaluable for any ambitious employee who realises the benefits of working for a Star venture - real responsibility, fast personal development, better pay, great bonuses, and valuable share options.
Whoever you are, identifying and investing in Stars will make your life much sweeter and richer in every way.

Makes perfect sense

Any additional comments?

I'm not sure why this book didn't have more reviews and more sales, I very nearly didn't buy it but I'm glad I did. I guess it's very hard to prove the theory set forth so people have to take the authors word and his five successes as prove. But the bottom line is there's no point in wasting your time on a business that doesn't have the potential to be a star so take your time before jumping into anything that could possibly be mediocre and very hard work for little reward. You can't argue with that, it's almost common sense yet the majority of people don't realize it. The other side is that Star's are more risky as they are generally unproven concepts but the author does advise careful research into your new niche market before acting. I really can't find fault in this book, it is flawless. One of the top ten business books I've read. The author is a genius! Thanks for writing this.

Has value but not in the league of 80/20 rule.

What disappointed you about The Star Principle?

Maybe I was expecting more form the guy who penned the 80/20 rule. He gets beyond the principle when he refers to his own endeavors as being in the "Star League" considering the comparisons are dated and may not have stood the test of time.

Has The Star Principle turned you off from other books in this genre?

No. It is just less than expected I expected from Richard Koch. Business and help information can be derived but it does not simply come off the narrative of the pages. It has no bearing on other books.

Would you be willing to try another one of Richard Aspel’s performances?

Not really. He did the text no real favors.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

For sure does have valid and factual blueprint for business purposes. However, you will need to outline and develop your own application of the information
