Financial adviser Dave Ramsey is an expert entrepreneur with a radio financial advice show and a regular slot on Fox Television. He also is a bold, brash conservative and a dedicated Christian who often mentions his faith and shares Bible verses. However, religion and politics aside, Ramsey’s book focuses on your entrepreneurial dream. He knows a lot about small business start-ups, and he shares his expertise. He offers lots of good advice and some advice you may want to weigh before taking it, like his suggestion that you should have dinner with an applicant and his or her partner to make sure the spouse isn’t nutty – maybe that’s a bit much. Ramsey also quotes other business authors often, so Stephen Covey, Patrick Lencioni and a few other big guns should take a bow here. That aside, this is a warm, worthwhile book on how to launch and run a business. getAbstract believes entrepreneurs of all creeds, political stripes and levels of experience can learn a lot about managing a business from this smart, small-business playbook.
