    Although you might think this is the ideal book for you from the title, I suggest you look elsewhere. Ms Allen offers little, if anything, that you cannot get from reading online. In addition, her grammar and verbage are AWFUL. It is frustrating to have spent so much on a book where the writer didn't bother to take an English class or proofread. 50% or more of the commas are misplaced. The writing is very simplistic. One would hope that anyone who aspires to be an entrepreneur has a more advance concept of economics than what is presented in this book. Additionally, there is little in this book with advice on patents, despite a whole chapter being written about it.. I was hoping to get more from an 'expert' in the field of entrepreneurship.
