by Andy Kessler
The era of easy money and easy jobs is officially over. Today, we're all entrepreneurs, and the tides of change threaten to capsize anyone who plays it safe. Taking risks is the name of the game-but how can you tell a smart bet from a stupid gamble?
Andy Kessler has made a career out of seeing the future of business, as an analyst, investment banker, venture capitalist, and hedge fund manager. He evaluated the business potential of the likes of Steve Jobs and Michael Dell before they were Steve Jobs and Michael Dell. His eye for what's next is unparalleled.
Now Kessler explains how the world's greatest entrepreneurs don't just start successful companies-they overturn entire industries. He offers twelve surprising and controversial rules for these radical entrepreneurs, such as:
• Eat people: Get rid of worthless jobs to create more wealth for everybody
• Create artificial scarcity for virtual goods
• Trust markets to make better decisions than managers
Whether you're at a big corporation or running a small business, you're now an entrepreneur. Will you see change coming and grab on to opportunity or miss the boat?

Brodsky shares his hard-earned wisdom every month in Inc. magazine, in the hugely popular "Street Smarts" column he cowrites with Bo Burlingham. Now they've adapted their best advice into a comprehensive guide for anyone running a small business.

Why is this book out of print?
By Steven K. Gold
I've had a copy of this book by my side for the past 25 years. It is one of the finest business books of all time, especially for entrepreneurs. Despite the dated nature of some of its content, the concepts are as important and useful today as they were when first put onto paper. One of my favorite chapters is Chapter Four: Market Gap Analysis. This chapter alone is worth many times the price of the book. As the author says, "Market gap analysis is an extremely powerful tool for uncovering those areas in the market in which demand far exceeds supply. This tool, coupled with the verification techniques of Chapter Five, will assure your company of a lucrative market." Whether you are seeking to identify a completely new product or service, or to expand your current company's lines, this chapter is invaluable. I found it amusing what other reviewers have written about losing copies of this book. I have also loaned out copies of the book never to have them returned, and I've resorted to keeping a few extra copies around. I can't think of any other book that I've valued so much!
