My educational background is in business, and over the years I have read many business books, listened to countless successful entrepreneurs, and I have never come across any material this honest and straightforward about business.

Ehab, having started businesses in 15 different industries, does a great job revealing the big picture of business.

I think anyone interested in starting a business, or any business owner interested in augmenting their wealth, will gain significantly from this book.

I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway! Thank you Mr. Atalla and Goodreads for offering me this opportunity.

For those whose ultimate goal is to be a successful businessman, earn lots of money, and time, this book is for you. The fact that the author of this book is an immigrant who didn't speak English who later created 34 businesses in the United States is enough to catch someone's attention.

One of the key messages of this book is that leverage is powerful. This book discusses things that will

This book was a gift by a great friend.

As a J.D./M.B.A. candidate, with a bachelor’s in economics, “The Secrets of Business” is extraordinarily relevant and motivating.

The book tells Ehab Atalla’s story- a fresh immigrant, unable to speak English, with $600 to his name, who later becomes a very successful businessman with an MBA. Most importantly however, it is evident that Ehab has mastered how to optimize and reap the benefits of America’s capital system, and this book shares step by step ho

The Book was Amazing!!! I read business books frequently and this by far was my favorite. The way the author shows money making opportunities in the world, the way he highlights them into normal everyday operation was just phenomenal. My favorite part of the book was when he explains that anytime of the years has opportunities at that moment which can be profitable to you. The author's personal life story is a very good inspiration and the examples he uses are also very logical even to novices o ...more

Ehab Atalla's rags to riches story is impressive - and he's more than happy to share his secrets with the reader, along with documentation to prove how he became a multimillionaire. His strategy is simple - he thinks ahead and is able to figure out how to make money by keeping his clients happy. Then he moves on to another venture. I was fascinated by his business acumen and his ability to think outside the box. A great read for anyone wanting to branch out and make money.

Incredibly inspiring book packed with insightful information on every page. I felt that Ehab was genuine and sincere in sharing his story, and he backs of all this claims with legal documents.

He's a very transparent author who wants to share his wisdom and give people a head start in business

You will see firsthand how I went from being a broke, immigrant cashier to starting 34 businesses in 15 different industries.

How I went from having no car to driving throughout all states in depth—visiting almost every major city in America and hustling door to door to sell my products (in one trip, I traveled 30,000 miles in just over two months) with my partner.
