    It's a MUST READ even if you don't think it applies to your business dreams.

    I would highly recommend this book to anyone. Wherever you deem or currently are in the business world, this book is for you. The way in which the author, Rob Basso goes about sharing personal stories and experiences through the known (and not so known) ups and downs on the road to success, is relatable and influential. This book not only tells a story, but brings together the world of other renown entrepreneurs from vast fields of business. From technology to fashion, there are lessons for everyone. The case studies that are also shared makes for a unique read that totally separates it from any other book of its kind.
