This book offers is a fantastic pragmatic study of what it takes to succeed as an entrepreneur. Well written with concepts demonstrated in real life case studies. Len Green, with his proven track record, understands what really works. And for the price of the book you also get to submit your own responses to case studies and receive Len Green's personal review and feedback! I treated the book as though I were auditing his class and while it took some effort, it was well worth it.

Good principles and concepts to bring into your business. Not written all that well but you can't really hold too high of a bar for that since writing isn't his background. Some strong opinions from the author that may not be how you want to operate can leave you less than a fan, but I felt came honestly from his perspective.

This was a quick read. The writing was a bit choppy; I believe intentionally so.

I found some new take away information from this book. Reading it energized my creativity.
