5.0 out of 5 stars new found respect, April 3 2014
This review is from: Restaurant Man (Kindle Edition)
I have a new found respect for Joe Bastianich and was taught the ultimate lesson in 'do not judge a book by its cover'. Being an avid fan of his mom, Lidia, I had very limited knowledge about her son, Joe, and then I saw him on "Master Chef". My first reaction was "what an arrogant #×@". Then I just finished reading his book!
I love it! I totally get it and really respect his honesty, integrity, 'realness', and generosity in sharing the real experience of what it meant, and what it now means, to be successful in the restaurant business.
His writing style is like having a one-one conversation with him. His candor and swearing may not be appreciated by some women but, as an italian-Canadian male, I loved it! My mission now is to experience as many of his restaurants as possible.
I can go on and on but have to say that I wish him and his great family continued success as they deserve it!

This person has the nerve to pass himself off as a business author. His skeltal, meaningless content plus confusing writing style and atrocious grammar make for a very frustrating read! Don't waste your money. I asked for mine back.

This so-called writer is a fraud. His skeletal, meaningless content and confusing writing style plus atrocious grammar are proof of his nerve to pass himself off as an author of books on business. I have asked Amazon for my money back!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the price of the book, Feb. 16 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Persuasion (Hardcover)
I admire and respect what this lady accomplished in her business and personal life so far but this books is a real disappointment.
There is too much preaching and not nearly enough examples to reinforce them. I am confident it could have been a much more interesting read if the reverse were true.

2.0 out of 5 stars Some good advice but focused too much on Dragon's Den, Feb. 16 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I admire the author's way of doing business and his accomplishments but would have appreciated more examples of his life/business experiences than the constant referrals to Dragon's Den. There are better business books out there but the price is right.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yeti USB Blu Microphone, Feb. 22 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The audio quality of the microphone is very good. It is not as easy to install as advertised but if you follow the instructions in the booklet there should be no problems.One thing I would recommend to improve is to make it easier to mount on a microphone stand. I would recommend this product as it is good quality for the price.
