Highly motivational, and the stories of his own experience are interesting and a good read. I'll read this book multiple times in the years to come, because there's so much information it. He writes like he has no doubt in his mind that you will be the next Entrepreneur that all the press wants to interview.
What I didn't like:
The author's definition (being absolute) of an entrepreneur. In his eyes, opening up a pizza shop isn't an entrepreneur, that's a small businessman. Entrepreneurs, per the author is someone with the goal of becoming a Fortune 500 company.
The book claims that entrepreneurs are born, and not made (actually relates to genetics, hunter versus farmer instincts). Later chapters attribute entrepreneurial traits to parental influences. That's confusing, because one would hope reading the book itself could be a strong factor, as well.
As an entrepreneur, the book claims that you will experience "entrepreneurial terror". Actually, many of the ventures recounted are risky, heavily leveraged, and prematurely mass-marketed. That "terror" feeling could have been a signal to back off on the gas pedal for most people. Building a strong business takes time. The book suggests that CEOs of publicly-held companies have sold out, and are not real entrepreneurs. Yet, the business ventures cited that did fail still lost money for people far less knowledgeable about investing than Wall Street companies.
Upon reaching the end of the book, I concluded that "entrepreneur" is just a polite word for an opportunistic, ultra-aggressive, individualistic approach to business. The lessons try to show how to reduce risk, but are actually closer to showing how to avoid having to trust business associates through one-upmanship and gaining tactical advantages. The "entrepreneurial terror" may come at the expense of personal peace for many entrepreneurs.
An entrepreneur model with too much individualism and aggression will miss the maturing process toward becoming an effective corporate leader. Yet, the latter chapters discuss Total Quality Entrepreneurship (TQE), a new management approach that makes "entrepreneurs" throughout an organization. But TQE's real effect may be to coax would-be entrepreneurs (who would start their own companies) into staying under the control of the current one. There's a built-in contradiction of terms.
If your looking for a book to really show you the inner personal change required to make it as a small business person, I'd recommend reading "The E-Myth Revisited."
Some of the reviews here don't cut it... they didnt get the point which is... know yourself first, then work around your strengths. This is a cornerstone work in my mind. The reference by other reviewers to the e-myth as being superior show that they love the "farmer" approach. I'd suggest they re-read FEO with a more open mind. It really is great stuff.
