    Good general business book. Mostly broad topics and general business advice. Shares a little insight into the personalities of the Sharks, but this book was not written by any of the Sharks on the television show. It is a start-up guide that uses topics, and examples from the television show. There are a lot of great "Shark" quotes and tips, but no real meat and potatoes. The best part of the book, beside the Shark quotes, is the "Tools and Resources" section at the end of the book. The worst part of the book is the absolutely awful use of "black" pages and white letters. It was so very hard to read, and really not that attractive. Not sure why someone decided that would be a good idea. Honestly just gave me a headache trying to read it. There's also a page or two actually written on top of a photograph. I give the book a B- and the graphics and design an F.
