Triple your money back if you buy this and don't think it was worth $18. You have to send us the book, though, and we may grill you on what exactly about it wasn't worth $18.

If you read the page-copies and it seems reasonable, you're going to die of love when you read this book. Ostensibly it's about business. Starting one, running one, working in one, and being businessy in general. There are fifty thousand business books out there, but only fifteen good ones, and this is one of them.

Hate wordy boring business books? You've come to the right place. Each "chapter" is between 230 and 500 words long, with an average of about 310. You can read one in between bites of food. Each chapter is perfect morsel in itself. The whole book is like a box of See's.

No matter what you do, in business or anything else, there's tons of good advice in here. You're a student? It works for that, too. I'm sending my college-daughter a copy. You're a slacker? Here too, it works, it applies, it's relevant. You'll be a sharper slacker for it.

Retail price is $22, and it's worth it. Amazon, low-ball booksellers that we all patronize now that the local booksellers folded five years ago and it's not like Barnes & Noble is a mom-and-pop shop----AMAZON sells it for $14 or so. Then there's freight.

Don't play the math, anyway. You're supposed to buy from the introducer, and in this case that's us. We sell it for $18. If your order is over $150 you don't pay freight, making us Amazon-beaters.

Short book, TONS of great tips October 22, 2012
Reviewer: Koula Redmond from Jacksonville, FL United States  
After working indirectly for the govt. for about 5 years, I decided to quit and make art for a living (if you could call it a living). A good friend suggested I read this book, and I'm glad I did!

One of the resounding themes from this book, for me, was the notion that success is not what everyone else says it is. The bottom line and how big a company is should not necessarily be the measuring stick of success. This book is about being successful by doing something you love and are passionate about, sticking to your ideals, simplifying things when possible, and doing what you do with high quality and excellent craftsmanship. I think if more business-folk read this book, we'd see more innovative, inspired companies crop up!
