    I skipped a few sections of this book, specifically ones that focused on things such as inventory management, or working with industrial suppliers and manufacturers, because those sort of things weren't relevant to the business I intend to start.The rest of the book is well written and insightful. The margins are littered with inspirational quotes from historical entrepreneurs, which pushed me to read the book even faster. All of the lessons were well crafted.

The margins are littered with inspirational quotes from historical entrepreneurs, which pushed me to read the book even faster. All of the lessons were well crafted. The "callout boxes" to very specific things, or for examples, really drew my attention in and made me focus on the fact sheets, or the little anecdotes from other entrepreneurs.The section on branding was top notch. It made me reconsider a lot of things I was thinking of doing.The section on writing your business plan was much more in-depth than the previous book I read on the topic.The section on taxes and the various forms of corporations/partnerships was fantastic. Although I know I'll have to consult an accountant, I now have a functioning vocabulary and baseline of knowledge in the area, and can articulate my thoughts on the topic better.Similarly, the legal section was very informative. Not sure what else to say about this.This book got me thinking like the head of a company instead of just a guy with an idea.

    Very good read that will expose the reader to things that are easily overlooked in the process of establishing a new business or even a growing one for that matter.

    A reference book to return to over and over during the process of starting your business, or thinking of starting one. Good, basic, solid and covers nearly all you need to know of the general aspects of start-up, from experts at start-ups and business writing. I read, and re-read, this book over the course of 10 months of start-up work for my own business. And I might go back and pick a few nuggets out again as I need them.

    Good books for beginner. I hope The Publisher releasing another book for next level. To grow the business and make it Success and Big. It has more content about management, leadership, marketing and othersso I suggest at least release 2 books :1. Start Your Own Business Book: about preparation and setting up a business. 2. Grow your Business: about making the business grow bigger and success.

    There's too much fluff in this book. There's so much stuff that's common sense:-Talk to your family about starting your business.-Make sure the business you're buying is legal.The only startup book you'll ever need? Nah

    Pretty boring read, but covers a lot of good ground, and I guess it's as riveting as you can expect from a book designed to explain how to launch a production company (or business in general).

    This book walked me through Steps A to Z in creating my business. Business classes or other resources are not needed. This book is the Bible of Entrepreneurship.

    Great book on starting a business. Very thorough. It provides a lot of information without boring you and making you want to put it down.
