Top critical review
Overly simplified with no real-world data and no real-life examples
Reviewed in the United States on November 16, 2014
If you have a small business already or have established one on at least a part time basis, then this book is just too simplistic to be of any real value to you. He uses made up examples of situations where business plans went awry but it is so basic and so simplistic in nature that it wasn't of any value to me. I wanted the nuts and bolts, real world examples of both large and small organization's business plans filled with facts and real data. Instead just hammy situations involving people that had no common sense at all or any kind of business acumen. If someone is one of those later types, then they should stay an employee of someone else but I don't think that that many are. I tried the audible version and was so disappointed after the first few chapters that I called and had them remove it from my downloaded items. Finally, I haven't subscribed to the Rich Dad Poor Dad franchise so if you haven't either, then you'll find numerous references to their own terminology that doesn't really apply outside of their system.
