The Author is a no-nonsense straight talker and the chapters are short which makes the book easy to read when you only have moments to steal here and there. He drills down into specifics and anyone who runs their own business will certainly be able to appreciate the hard luck, the dumb moves, the good luck and the creative thought that went inot getting this company off the ground and running. It's nice to know that even a great company like Fed-Ex made its own fair share of stupid errors and was able to become a great success.
Any busines owner will feel much better about their lot in life after reading this.
I loved it.
