I got to know of Duncan Bannatyne through a business partner, and then subsequently watched a few episodes of the Dragons Den. Later I spotted this book in some airport with his "I-really-cannot-be-bothered-to-even-pretend-to-be-happy" face on the cover of this book. I bought, and know I've read it.

There is nothing not to like about this book. It is what the title says. A succint description of 43 mistakes, how to avoid them and a few real life examples for some of those. The author clearly knows what he's writing about. This is a must-read for every starting enterpreneur and some should read it every year just in case as well. ...more

Duncan Bannatyne, one of the panel on the BBCs Dragons Den programme, gives business advice.

I found this book to be very inspiring. I wished I’d read it when I was younger.
