    "I am a strong believer that you can't have enough books about entrepreneurs. There is always a useful tip and trick in one of these books. There is always a new angle you can see a strategy being created out of nothing. If I had something like earlier in life, that would have helped me with my budget in the beginning, I would have had a much more successful business from the start. It cost me a lot of money to learn some of the lessons this book will teach you. It is for sure be worth the money and the time to read. "

    "This appears to be a good solution. The book has a few reviews on sites like Amazon and they are positive but the number of reviews is very low. The book apparently does not have diagrams which would likely have been helpful. It apparently gives an inspiring look at capitalism, entrepreneurship and perseverance. However given the few reviews it is likely not widely distributed. "

    "I've been looking for resources for entrepreneurs for some time now and it seems that it's very hit or miss. I thought Disrupted by Dan Lyons would be a great read and would give me tons of information but it really just gave me a background of his employment and the amount of times he's been fired. I'll keep looking."

    "I absolutely recommend reading "5 Tiny Business Habits..." The practical advice may seem intuitive and simple at first, but following these five steps (1.) Being frugal, 2.) Monitoring only one metric per day, 3.) Stretching your comfort zone, 4.) Learning one competitor's secret per day, and 5.) Learning to delegate) requires discipline and focus. Definitely sound information for improving a business' bottom line, in my opinion."

    "I bought this off Amazon and didn't find it to be that helpful. The basic idea of the book is that you have to have a lot of money to make money. Well, I don't have much money to begin with and this book didn't address that problem."

    "Well, if you're looking for yet more vague techno-babble about bitcoin and cryptocurrency look no more. I mean you can tell that he knows what he's talking about, it's just that none of the rest of us do. Not very useful if you are actually trying to break into the cryptocurrency game. Still there was some advice for people like me trying to leap up on the band wagon, or even get the people on it to yell some useful advice at me as they pass me by. Not to mention just getting the bandwagon not to run over my foot. *Sigh *"

    "eVoice is an OK product in a saturated market of VOIP phone services. It has no unique features and has less support, and so it may not survive the boom. At this point it is affordable to go with proven players like Vonage, and your business will benefit from stability regarding a fundamental required service."
