What people think about the book


"I thoroughly enjoyed this book; it's a great journey into the minds of some of our country's great self-made business people and how they've succeeded in a massively changing marketplace. A lot of books provide inspiration on starting an online business: this is one of the first books I've read that both inspires AND educates."

"It's eloquent, sharp and funny. This author is infectiously passionate about her subject and has a keen sense of curiosity. It's well-structured and packed with anecdotes, real life examples and experience from those 'making it happen' online. If only all business books were this engaging to read."
