The #1 national bestseller from the former co-star of Dragons' Den and co-star of Shark Tank

Robert Herjavec has lived the classic “rags to riches” story, from having $20 in his pocket to starting up technology companies worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Now the star of television’s Dragons’ Den and Shark Tank, this son of Croatian immigrants earned his incredible wealth by overcoming the odds with hard work and determination. On television, Herjavec bankrolls the best inventions and shoots down the best of intentions. Now, he’s sharing his hard-won wisdom in one of the most inspirational business books of recent times.

In Driven, Herjavec shares the secrets that took him from his job waiting tables to growing his nascent technology company into a world-class conglomerate, The Herjavec Group. Herjavec’s principles are as valuable in the living room as they are in the boardroom. Anyone can succeed, on their own terms, by following his sage but simple advice—if they’re willing to take chances, to take control of their own future and to stay true to their own visions.

I enjoyed the book. The tone was conversational, yet one of a mentor helping you. Herjavec numbered many important main ideas throughout the book, which made them easy to understand and follow. He talked more about his past than I anticipated. I agreed with a lot of the concepts and felt a lot of the information in the book was useful.  People who have a burning desire to succeed should read this book and let it be an inspiration to them.
