    Real life experience both in the life and business, this book is very inspiring .

    I was very touch by the upbringing of this man, his endurance and hardships and most of all his greatest achievements which he had accomplished at this young age after reading the book. It shows how great human power is and what we can achieve once we set out in the life to reach and dream goals, very humbling experience and I also had the opportunity to have met Mr.Bob Davis who himself as a human being seems very humble - 'You led up and you Win by achievements, goals and real life issues which makes you the great human being you are I think those were the best and core of your book'

    Weed Through the Complaints

    Great book on business and business ethics...However, Davis never takes the blame for anything. I skimmed over his complaints and found the book very informative.

    A must read for anyone who lived through the Internet rollercoaster

    Outstanding book on the practical things that make people successful. Follow Davis's advice on anything you do in life and you'll be bettter for it. This is a man who understands people, business and what makes it all work. Great insight in to what made this company the Internet power he sold to Terra. He'll be back to do it all over again because these business practices are timeless and should be applied by anyone who wants to achieve success.

    A very good book

    I really enjoyed the stories behind the stories of the internet. It was surprising to see how much goes on that is never reported. A lot of practical lessons were detailed to manage a business
