Format: Paperback
The book is great and the most updated on the subject - but the CD rom included with the book is superb and a very nice added bonus! It contains a full 50+ page business plan in Word for easy editing with financial statements, over 50 customized forms for your use in PDF format, and a check list of thousands of items you need to open - these are all bonus items included on the CD ROM !!!
We have looked at other business plans and software and all were over $100.00 - this is a great value - my only comment is the book is so packed with info. the type size is a little small for my aging eyes...

There was a few reviewers on the .com amazon website saying the book was not helpful and very vague. After reading the book I have to agree with these comments. I was reading these types of books for the "how" type of tips and what the author wrote was more so general things I already knew about opening a business. "You'll need a good business plan," "You'll need to have lots of capital," "You'll need a great marketing strategy, make sure to spend lots of money here, or your business will never get off the ground." But it doesnt really say HOW to do any of these things. It may have offered one or two unoriginal sample ideas such as a typical customer loyalty program, or some basic interview questions that you can ask prospective hires but really there are no innovative ideas in this book and it did not help me learn anything new. There are better books on the subject that I have learned far more from, such as Start & Run a Home-Based Food Business by Mimi Fix, How to Start a Home-Based Bakery Business by Denay Davis ... I hate giving bad reviews because I realize the author put a lot of work into this book and clearly some people have gotten help from it, but personally I did not. That is just me. We all have our own skill levels coming into it before reading the book and perhaps when you know zero about what it takes to open a business this book will be helpful. Although the writing is a bit dry.
