Excellent book, read it quite a few years ago. Just read his new book, what a waste of time and money. Nothing at all like his previous works. Really felt ripped off, not only for the cost of the book but for the time I spent reading it.

Earlier this month an excellent book by Marty Grunder "9 Super Simple Steps to Entrepreneurial Success". Great book for anyone that is wanting to be in business for themselves. Marty is the founder fo Grunder landscaping company in Dayton Ohio.

However I just finished a book by Jim Paluch "5 Important things" a very easy read. If you are a business owner or any one that is wanting more from your life, and get the chance to read only one book this year, don't miss this one.

Moving on to another one by the same author called "Leaving a Legacy" just a couple of chapters into it but seems to have a lot to offer.
