Quick Review: My father picked this book off the shelf at a local book reseller in town and lent it to me this past week. He had worked his way through the first forty pages or so and the synopsis he gave me got me overly excited for the book. Because of this, I went in with high expectations and was slightly disappointed. The book details how to be a rebel and entrepreneur in corporate business. It offers tips on starting your own company and management tips for business rebels. Much of the information was insightful – but as a college student who does not work in corporate America nor have startup capital I found it slightly irrelevant. However, I continued to read and found a handful of useful tidbits on best practices I can start to look out for and implement right now. In fairness, the book is roughly 18 years old and predicted many of the happenings post dot com bubble and forecasted many trends that hold true today. Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone working in corporate America who feels like they don’t belong or to individuals looking to learn about a unique entrepreneur and how he was able to capitalize on a niche market using his “rebel” talents.
