Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
However, the first thing I noticed about those reviews is that they all used "real names"--not a common occurance for many items, as you likely know if you are a regular shopper with Amazon. I then took a gander at the "other reviews" of the reviewers, and realized the vast majority of the reviewers have reviewed this book alone, and no other books. Suspicious! Is someone making up profiles, having their friends vote for their book, etc. in order to boost the ratings (and therefore viability of this item) or what?
For this issue alone, I am going to pass on this book. I do not feel I can trust these reviews!
What the book offers is one of the solutions to our USA economic woos, and that is "Entrepreneurism". We need to promote more individual investment into our present system and not depend on Big Business. Big Business is only interested in profit and bottom line, not in increasing employment. With the introduction of Globalization, Big Business moved their manufacturing and service business overseas leaving a large void in the US economic structure.
The only way we can fill the void is with small business start ups, and that takes the American entrepreneurial spirit to get it started.
A book of this kind is needed to create the confidence and the guide lines needed to start.
I would look forward to the author Marilyn Sweet, writing a follow-up book, "Starting Business in a Recession". Also create a more national overview, or eventually global.
As an added bonus, the author was true to her word and actually answered emails with suggestions directed to my personal situation.
Thank you so much Marilyn!
