    This book is so far the best I ever read on Closeout/Surplus business. Its really a personnal roadmap for starting small a make a big profit in the surplus business. Many secrets revealed in this book have been carefully garded, until Donny Lowy decided to share his experience in the business. I think that the book is the foundation of the Surplus/Closeout Business. There's nothing in the market that can beat this book.

    Not for everyone!

    The book brings great ideas backed by personal stories on how to make money through five different businesses. But the book is not for you if you are looking for a get rich quick book. If you are looking for a real book with real information then this book is for you.
