Small Biz Bible

This book has been very useful. The author gives practical tips, advice, checklists and forms - all in an easy to read format. He makes things that seem overwhelming at first suddenly seem manageable. The CD ROM saved me a bundle in legal fees. He seems to know what it is like to have been in the trenches.

Great for those starting their business

It's great to see a book written by an attorney who also understands business.Too many other books out there are written by amateur business people who's real business is in promoting and selling lousy books.The CD-Rom will save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars and time.Also recommend "The Small Business Kit" and "How to Incorporate in any State" by J.W. Dicks, another attorney and businessman with real world knowledge.Good luck with your business! gives it a thumbs up!

A few of the staff at [online business] have used this book to help the start previous businesses. We feature it on our site because we have found it so helpful. It is both simple and comprehensive - a great book for those starting or running a business.

Extremely Helpful for Everyday Chores

Initially I was confused over how this book would be different from "Small Business for Dummies." Now I think I know. This book focuses on the everyday chores of starting, funding and running a small business, and gives you lots of legal forms which you can use in order to save money on attorney fees. I find the forms on the CD-ROM extremely useful and helpful.The book does NOT talk about business ideas or marketing. It approaches the small business from a legal standpoint. For example, how do you talk to venture capitalists? How do you give employees stock options (incredible info in the book!)? How do you deal with employee discontent? How to protect your business legally? How to write a contract? And so on.If you need to know how to get a small biz idea or how to sell your products/services, this book is not for you. But, once you get your idea off the ground, you ABSOLUTELY NEED this book to survive -- unless you've got lots of cash to afford a good attorney. This book is no substtitute for a lawyer in many situations, but I have been able to use the forms in the book and on the accompanying CD-ROM to save my company thousands of dollars. I think this is a must-have reference for every small business owner.I wish IDG would put out an updated edition soon.

Unbelievably helpful

The book was unbelievably helpful for my small business. I found the answer to 3 questions that were really bothering me. And, I found the CD-ROM attached to the book very valuable for some employment forms and agreements. The author made some difficult concepts clear and interesting, which is the hallmark of the Dummies series. The forms alone probably will save me lots of money in legal bills.
