A book full of jargon and not very useful information. Most of the advice was either so obvious that almost no one would find it useful or so specific as to be totally useless.

Had I not been asked to read it at work in order to help make business plans, or if I had anything at all to do the few days that I read it I certainly would have quit after the first few chapters when I realized it wasn't going to get any more useful, applicable, or interesting.
I listened to this on audio book file. I really liked it. The most important thing I got out of it was the importance of a well written mission statement for your company. This book was helpful for my entrepreneurship class at University of Chicago.
A decent overview of what you'd put in a business plan, but not enough instruction on the process of getting one together. Honestly, I found better step-by-step guides online, for free.

And sooooo boring.
Solid, practical content. Dull business plan sample.
