2.0 out of 5 stars Not very practical Dec 6 2012
By Jinnah
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not terribly practical. No information on laws or taxes or logistics. They spend a lot of time talking about how to write a mission statement. It's more about self reflection and getting your head in order, then it is about solid, practical information.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ground Floor Information Sept. 26 2013
By nellie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this book guided me to the next level. Having never run or owned a business before I was in the dark about what to look for or which questions to ask. I can now use the info, web sites and the references to prepare my entry into the business world and avoid the pitfalls which many people fall into. In short, the book gives good guidance for a beginner.
