“A great book, which gets to the key focus areas without any of the excess fluff. I read the book not to help with a new business plan, but to get ideas for how to take my current business, which is still in relative early stages, to the next level and it has really helped me to refocus. It has already made inspired me to implement some new ideas [this year] and going forwards I will be writing a new business plan every 6 months to keep re-focussing. I also loved the use of the Mike Tyson quote” – Amazon Review
