Excellent Motivational Primer for the Small Business
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 17 years ago
think this is a book for two reasons. Many motivational or business books are about a guy that either started a big company because of a great product and statistically that is just a small number of business people (like a Bill Gates) or they are an executive that was a success in a larger organization (like Jack Welch) or they got a head start with a family business (like Sumner Redstone or Ted Turner). But here is a book about a small business operator. He is much closer to the average guy. He was running in fact a small business both inside and outside of competitive yachting. Secondly he covers all the basic fundamentals in motivation and planning. I will not review them again here - you can look at the index - but it is simply a great summary of things to do and attitudes that must be developed. This is a short but powerful book just 200 pages long and costing now only $5.00.
Better than it seems

This is a formulaic book with a great message. The writing style may drive you nuts, but the message about the commitment to performance is there. My favorite people are those who truly love something, especially something with measured performance, and Dennis Conner clearly loves winning yacht races. This book isn't about yacht races (there are other Dennis Conner books about that), it's about winning at whatever you do. I return often to this book for motivation and ideas on how to improve.
