    Don't know much about him, but you've got to like a guy like Michael Dell - I love his computers. Have stock too! Started the business in his college dorm room and now has one of the most successful manufacturing models in business today. It is actually easy and enjoyable to buy a computer through Dell.

    I don't know if Dell has a book. But some other good ones are:

    You will be satisfied - Bob Tasca
    E-Myth (several in series) - Michael Gerber
    The Millionaire Next Door - Tom Stanley

    It's true.

    The real sad thing is that they're starting to cut corners now, customer service, warranty, and the worst their dell prefered account, what a bunch of arsos.

    Two good books I read was the book about the two guys who started Home Depot, and Donald Trumps autobiography.. Two entreprenuers that were pretty interesting... Another entreprenuer that I have to give a lot of credit would be Jay-Z the rapper, they estimated him to be worth over $300 million. Not bad for a guy who was in jail and sold crack only a few years ago...
