If you've ever been amazed by a magic trick and had a "Oh, it was just that!" response when you saw how the trick was performed, you might have a similar feeling after reading this book. But in a good way.

For me, starting a business involved a lot of unknowns, a lot of "black magic" (laws, accounting, budgets, hiring people, finding suppliers...). This book brought me backstage. And I feel a lot safer now, since I know that it's just a lot of work (hurray!). This book has shown me how to wear the many hats I'll have as a small business owner. Out goes the magic, in comes the method, the discipline, the long hours...

Very well structured, very well written, comprehensive and detailed information. I've read many books on the subject - this is THE book to read for starting a business.

"You will need a table on which you can write down your work"
Seriously, did I need this book to point it out for me?

This book offers very little information or pointers as to where to find further explanations on the subjects provided.
I recommend "Se lancer en entreprise", if you are French, from Editions de l'Homme (or is it Trois-Carré? I forgot).

A good book should have thorough information on market study, market segmentation, branding, estimating operating costs and core concepts like cashflow.

I haven't had a chance to read the whole book just yet but so far I'm finding that there are some very good tips in here for somebody (ME) who doesn't have a clue!!

This is a great 'getting started' book for anyone thinking about opening your own business. The fact that it is geared to Canadians makes it even better.

I guess the kindle version was so cheap compared to the printed version that it was hard to pass up a bargain. Setting out is poor, no index and content was micky mouse.

too mixed up with yanky text. completely irrelevant. Unless you are a teenager, that has no business experience I would not waste your money.
