Fast read on what makes this successful person tick

It's fascinating to see how people achieve their goals, and from their experiences learn what you can to fulfill your own. The book is easy to read and almost as fast paced as Mr. Harrington. It teaches a good lesson on never giving up, having clear goals, and seeing beyond what everyone else is doing while being true to yourself and your happiness. If you're an inventor he's still in the business of investing in companies and also marketing products. If you're a fan of Shark Tank you'll get a good background story.

Good book, quick read.

Overall, I agree with the review by Duane Harris. I do wish Harrington would have spent a little more time explaining how to take a product from and idea to a profitable product. I was glad I read it and felt it gave me confidence to the entrepreneur within me.

The Informerical King

I thought this book was direct to the point and it really help explain the informerical madness of the early 90's and how Kevin harness an untapped market and took it to the next level. He comes off as a low spoken investor on the hit show Shark Tank but he really is an expert when it comes to promoting your ideas/products and converting it into obscene amount of $$$$ This book was good but it felt rushed at some time and other part it feel lacking. I wish he have add another part on how to get a product to sell on tv. But I see you're going to have to break it down yourself.
