I would highly recommend picking up this book to anyone contemplating opening a small business or maybe struggling with an existing one. It is an easy read and reminds you of the common pitfalls, at the same time motivating for success...

This is the best book on starting business that I've come across. A lot of practical tips on various strategies (marketing, pricing, promoting etc.). However, it is probably more about running a new business rather than steps in opening one. Worth reading thus.

Pretty good intro to starting a business Dec 26 2005
By Michael Spitzer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is a good summary of the more technical aspects of starting a business. It doesn't dig into economics or financial issues too deeply so just reading this book isn't going to make you an expert. But, I think the general steps to starting a business are laid-out pretty well and that this book has a lot of value for someone looking for direction. One thing I would have liked to see in this book was a concise summary of all the steps involved so that when it is time to refer back to this book after reading it, you're not digging through the details and examples.

Excellent book Jan. 31 2011
By Shri - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Not for the faint of heart. It's a thought provoking book that will challenge you to repeatedly assess your will and preparedness for starting a new venture. It's not like those other books that get you day-dreaming. It's a book that will make you work hard, letting you know all along that you'll be working even harder if you were to start a new venture. I recommended it to other friends of mine it's been widely loved and appreciated by all of them.

The Mcgraw & Hill guide to Starting your own business Dec 31 2007
By Sheena Matos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I feel this book has alot of good information, but for me some things were hard to understand. It has given me new views and I do think this is a great book if you already know alot about business. For me I am clueless so I think I need a more direct guide.
