Publisher's Summary

The inspiring sequel to the international bestseller The 80/20 Principle.Koch shows how to maximize success in your career and life by using the proven principle that 80 percent of changes in the world result from the most powerful 20 percent of actions and ideas. He'll show how to use your own powerful "20 percent spike" - your most creative ideas and unique skills - to measure the amount of value you bring to your employer, clients, or customers. For most people, there is a huge disparity between their intrinsic value and the compensation they receive for their efforts. The 80/20 Individual shows how to narrow that gap.

Should be titled "How to Start a Business"

Let me preface this by saying that I am, in fact, a Richard Koch fan.

This book is titled wrong. Likely to ride the success of his previous bestseller The 80/20 Principle. There's little about 80/20 / The Pareto Principle in this book. Rather, it's a book about how to start a business as an entrepreneur.

If it had a better fitting title, it'd be a better book – for its intended audience.

It's clear that what Richard is most passionate about in life, is finding (and helping create/grow) great businesses. He's an investor, and his latest books The Star Principle (my fave – it's killer! Highly recommended) and Simplify (one you can skip) are like continuations of this one, the "The 80/20 Individual". His thoughts on what makes businesses successful, are very valuable. Just don't expect more 80/20 nuggets from him than what was in The 80/20 Principle. The only other 80/20 book available, is Perry Marshall's 80/20 Sales & Marketing – which I also highly recommend.

This one? Meh. Not so much. The business-building framework in The Star Principle is a more evolved version of the one he presents in this one.

80/20 Entrepreneur would have been a better title

Interesting but not the book I thought I was buying. Very much geared around entrepreneurial strategy and financial leverage. So if you have a business idea you want to take to the next level this is the book will give a strategic perspective. If however you are looking for more a personal development style book around applying the 80/20 (defining the vital few etc) you need to go to his consultancy company...
