I gave always been very interested and fascinated by entreprenuers. Jay's book was an informative, fun, and quick read. He has many successes and has worked with many talented individuals. Jay shares his insight into the future of our economy. I learned a great deal about our economy and what it takes to "make it" as an entrepreneur. His writing style is enjoyable and easy to read. I only wish that Jay provided a larger look into his life. If Mr. Maharjan ever decides to write a memior, I will gladly read it! Michael Hatcher
I met Jay Maharjan at a Vesto event and decided buy his book. Part autobiography, part manual and very much a journalistic snapshot of entrepreneurship in it's greatest home; the United States. Kudos to Maharjan for lucidly explaining Peter Drucker's "Knowledge Economy" and it's transition to what he call the the "Conceptual Economy", the relevance of art and for having the courage to take a stand. A must read for anyone who recognizes the importance of entrepreneur in the economy and sees the future as a wonderful place. Alan GoyaEntrepreneur, Nevada
