A good piece but overly long.

I understand the need to explain the historical context of a person but I do feel there was a bit too much about 'other' people ; it felt like the history of the Romanovs more than anything else. The murder of Rasputin was a very small section of the book and warranted further examination. The conclusion was nigh on non-existent. Still, a good book if looking for a more general history book. Could have been tightened by cutting down the length by half.

One of the best entrepreneur books available

I enjoy reading these kind of books and having gone through Brian Tracy, Zig Ziglar and Grant Cardone, to name a few, I can say that this is vying for my number one spot. There is no over-the-top bravado as the sincerity shines through. The words of advice are provided in an avuncular manner as opposed to some of the 'do as I say or your an idiot' that one sometimes come across. The anecdotes are accurate, salient, relevant and well explained. It changed my view of how businesses can start. In fact I am following the blueprint on my current venture (in conjunction with another excellent book "Unscripted").
