At first I was skeptical; now I'm a fan
By Roger C. Parker
I was originally skeptical when I received an early copy of Start Your Own Business. Part of my skepticism was the "ONLY startup book you'll ever need" banner on the front cover.
However, after living with Start Your Own Business for several months, and finding myself not only referring back to it, but also recommending it to family members and friends, I now realize the banner isn't a claim, but is a credible statement. The amount of detail inside, along with dozens of worksheets, makes this an ideal handbook to be kept within reach at all times.
The book's length, 700+ pages, also was an initial concern. Who has time to read 700+ pages? But, that's not a valid concern, for the same reason that the Physicians Desk Reference doesn't have to be "read" as much as "referred to" as needed. The detailed table of contents, which organizes chapters into 8 main sections, makes it easy to locate the information you desire.
Start Your Own Business is a great resource that brings everything together in one place for both startups and serial entrepreneurs.

A comprehensive guide to starting a business
By David H. Bangs Jr.
The checklists in Starting Your Own Business are helpful,raising questions and suggesting ways to answer them that most neophytes wouldn't think of asking. The chapters on using the internet for marketing are eye-opening for an old duffer such as I. The sections on electronic gadgets how to use the internet & social marketing are of interest to any small business owner. I might add that I went to NexTag.com and will recoup the cost of SYOB with one purchase of ink cartridges for my ancient HP DeskJet. I heartily recommend SYOB for anyone interested in starting or improving a small business.

Still wondering what "C" really stands for
By San Francisco Book Review
If you have ever pondered, even just for a moment, of setting out on your own in business, this book is the ultimate book for you. From first thought to resources, to getting investors, to choosing locations, this book should be called the Bible of Starting Your Business.
Honestly, I would be hard pressed to come up with anything that is missed in Entrepreneur's 5th edition. It is written similar in style to the //Dummies// books with tips, checklists, and important things to note in the sidelines, but never managing to be condescending like the //Dummies// books tend to be.
With the economy the way it is, more and more are considering striking out on their own. Many tries won't get off of the ground because they don't have their plans well formed, they don't do the footwork required, or they don't realize just how much goes into the bigger picture. Starting a business entails a lot more than just printing up business cards and waiting for the phone to ring. With //Start Your Own Business// you will have a yellow brick road all laid out for you, including ideas, laws, and hopefully, success.
