Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Business pundit Roth (carolroth.com) addresses her first book to would-be entrepreneurs and pulls no punches as she helps listeners evaluate their suitability for the competitive entrepreneur environment. Chapters help listeners assess their goals, business plan, and personal fit with entrepreneurship but focus more on risks than rewards. The humorous tone makes this a fun, if sobering, listen. Veteran narrator Mike Chamberlain offers an appropriately hard-hitting performance. However, the book's checklists and worksheets are ill-suited to the audio format. Recommended for stouthearted entrepreneurs or those looking for the bright side of their day jobs. [The BenBella hc, published in March, was a New York Times and a USA Today best seller.—Ed.]—Mark Swails, Johnson Cty. Community Coll. Lib., Overland Park, KS
