Format: Paperback
I saw that the first two reviews listed here are for the old edition of this book! The new edition, just released last month, is completely updated. Here are just some examples covering virtually every established and emerging field, including the Internet: Internet marketing, designing web pages, ecotourism, gourmet food shop or producer, take-out restaurateur, adult day services provider, play gym operator, home health care provider, personal chef, dating service provider, B&B innkeeper, craft wholesaler, "whodunit" producer, party planner, and the list goes on and on. Each entry gives a complete behind the scenes look and relays success stories from real entrepreneurs, with verbatim comments and must-know secrets about every aspect of running the business. The introductory chapter gives you all the nuts and bolts information about how to succeed as an entrepreneur with topics like the positive character traits of entrepreneurs, and info about generating capital, business plans, finding lawyers and bookkeepers and bankers, marketing, working from home, finding and keeping employees, and more.

Format: Paperback
While the author has some good ideas for start-up businesses, she is behind the times. Keep in mind it was most recently published 6 years ago. Read it to get ideas, but don't count on it to reflect current trends. According to the author, typing, word processing, old school computer languages, and pagers are all in hot demand.

Great book for ideas, good insight to businesses April 9 2007
By A. Duran - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book has some great summaries, about 6 pages in length each for a variety of businesses. Discussions center around best-case scenarios and the author offers bits of interviews from those successful owners and how you can apply it to starting your business. A suprisingly realistic view of quite a few different business options.

I really would like to see an updated version of this book since it was published in 2000 and the market has changed for many small businesses.
