More than inspirational puffery from a life coach; Bob Pritchett's Start Next Now is blunt, funny, practical advice on how to get ahead from a successful entrepreneur with 440+ employees. It is a kick in the pants and an actual plan that can advance your career before you even finish the book. Which won’t take long, because it’s short.

I don't normally read anything that has "Self Help" on the back, but since my CEO wrote this book and I got a free copy I thought I'd give it a shot. I actually happen to think he's a good visionary leader; I don't just say it because I work here. I also figure I might as well get some insight into the way the top guy thinks if I'm going to do well at this company. I felt like I was rewarded with genuine wisdom rather than vapid, platitudinous pull-yourself-up-by-your-bootstraps pablum.

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of Bob Pritchett's book, Start Next Now, and here is my honest product review.

From the description: "This fast-paced book provides you with an actual plan to start achieving your goal before you even finish reading." So it's a quick read, motivational to light a fire under you and to get you going, to make you feel responsible for your life and your dreams, and to give you pointers here and there about the next steps in your education, career, or business, but

Second read through of this book. Still a good book that I'd encourage everyone to read at least once. Has a lot of good advice for young people who often struggle with making decisions and just taking that first step. It's definitely a motivational book, but still has some good truths that one can learn from.

I love Bob Pritchett's "Fire Someone Today". It is one of my favorite books. But I thought this [very] short book was rather pedestrian. Very little here that isn't common sense or already outlined elsewhere.

I noticed Amazon and Goodreads have a slightly different meanings to their 5-point scale. I thought it was odd to have a different rating for the same book on two different sites, so I came up with my own scale below. For the record, it is fairly close to Amazon's scale, but a

Brief and insightful. Had I read it 20 years ago I would have added the fifth star! Not quite my demographic.

Great, quick read designed to help anyone take responsibility for their career, or what's left of it. Very practical advice with actionable suggestions in every section.

An excellent, concise book from Bob Pritchett, the CEO of one of the Bible software companies I heavily do business with. Every business leader or anyone wishing to get ahead in life should read this book. It's a short read but chock full of wisdom that is practical and essential for everyone.

This is a book that encourages you to take the next step in the plans you have and that you do it now. It is encouragement from someone who has done it and is doing it.
Great Book
