    I wouldn't say that this book is a be all end all guide, but there is a lot of useful information to be aware if you are thinking about opening a restaurant. It is not simply a matter of putting up a sign and serving food. There is quite a bit of planning that is involved. This book helps you better think through your plans.

    Fairly thorough book that specifies the process of opening a restaurant. Gives you a lot to think about from the type of restaurant you want to open, creating a menu, financing, location, etc. Worth reading before getting into the restaurant business.

    This book was a waste of money...it is very simple, states the obvious and does not bring any value..  the only positive is that it does live up to its title?
    so it truly is designed for a 'Dimwit'.  I would rate this a zero but system will not accept anything less than a two star!
