The Road to Success provides an excellent road map for the entrepreneur. The straightforward advice is helpful, to the point, has immediate application, and provides insight into growing a company strategically.
William Murphy
The Road to Success: How to Manage Growth is a book that is practical, useful, and interesting. I especially recommend the chapters on developing a management information reporting system and implementing information technology and controls. Clearly written by experienced practitioners, their advice can assist entrepreneurs struggling with difficult reporting and systems issues.

If you've survived the first stages of entrepreneurship, you must read and implement the ideas and strategies put forward in The Road to Success. Failure to do so could be fatal. The pragmatic and strategic thinking presented in this book is a map for every entrepreneur who wants to become a true Chief Executive Officer.
