and other ramblings of a small business owner
I was pretty excited to start this book. It’s not a title that would usually attract me, so I was interested to try something new. Unfortunately, I’ll have to say up front that I didn’t get on with it at all.
My main problem with the book is that it bombards you with anecdotes to the point that the I felt the message was lost. This meant that I found there was very little I could take away from it and ended up wondering what the point was.
Don’t get me wrong, examples are good. I remember reviewing a book a while ago that barely had any examples, and that was hard going. But … please, please, please don’t just give anecdote after anecdote and leave me to decipher the message myself. I never was any good at cryptic crosswords.
I like to balance my book reviews with positive and negative. I’ve covered the negative, so let’s see what I can come up with for positive:
However, I’ll have to say that it’s not the book for me. Having read it I don’t feel that I’m any more equipt to win arguments.
