A carpenter gets tired of almost losing a finger every time he slices a bagel. Bam! The Bagel Guillotine. A mother is frustrated that her pantry is full of stale food because the packages don't close. Bam! Quick Seals. Howard Schultz notices on a trip to Italy that there are coffee bars on almost every corner. Bam! Starbucks.
None of them had a barrel of cash. None of them had a ton of experience. They had a big idea and the will to follow through.
In The Big Idea, Deutsch draws not only on his own tremendous focus and expertise, but on that of dozens of the successful entrepreneurs whom he has interviewed, to help you create your own enterprise.
From the "Gut Check Moment" to "Mom Power," The Big Idea takes aspiring entrepreneurs along every step of the way. The Big Idea is your road map to the American dream.

"THE book on getting your ideas to market"
I used to watch THE BIG IDEA religiously (and was on it twice ;) Donny tells it like it is in total realism without all "THE SECRET" or worthless delusional positive thinking books out there. I really miss the show and this is the "nuts and bolts" of what it was all about.
Although Donny comes from wealth the stories he presents of those that struggled to be successful and how they did it is incredibly inspiring.
I wish this book was even longer. Get rid of those books that tell you how to wish for success without any reality based info and get your ideas going by listening to this. Hope he does a follow up, I'll be first on the list to get it.
"great book that's full of GOLD"
I wish I read this when I was younger. In any case I think this book is full of Gold
"Good information and inspirational."
Worthy of my time. Inspirational easy to listen to. Easy to put yourself in the story and make you think.
"Great Book ...chock full of ideas!! BUY THIS BOOK!"
I was a little hesitant in buying the book ...but definitely shouldn't have been. The book was GREAT!! ...really gets you pumped up and motivated ...turns on your entrepreneurial spirit! .....absolutely loved it! Full of insight, easy to listen to, and lots of interesting real life success story's. -----definitely has top spot in my motivational library.
"Liked it a lot!"
I also purchased the book but have not had time to read it, so I am glad I could listen as I spend hours in my car these days. It is always inspiring to me to hear real-life stories about regular people just like me who have had an idea, persisted, persisted, persisted, and then been greatly rewarded (emotionally AND financially) for their efforts.
It's a good listen, and I enjoyed Donny's enthusiasm as he narrated.
"Simple and fun!"
Very easy, motivational listen. Also, Donny has a great voice for narrating.
Cool to see just regular people come up with an idea and then actually do something with it.
"This book will be around for a long time"
If you are a dreamer, have a idea, think about getting out of the rat race that most of us are in. Buy this book, its great listen too and makes you think you can do it. Has so many helpful solutions for going forward with your dreams and ideas.
