    It is not what I thought, it is literally 1,000 to make 1,000 dollars doing... "pig farming, there is a big need for this bird, starting an oil company may be profitable..." My point is so books age. This one did! It is not what I thought, it is literally 1,000 to make 1,000 dollars doing...

    No wonder Warren Buffet is successful in business. Reading all of these old business success stories allows you to see the underlining principles behind business success, doing something you know that you're better than anyone else at, establish a process, keep data, and the wonderful magic of good marketing. Once you make it, watch your money by investing in what you know! No wonder Warren Buffet is successful in business.

    The book is a good argument to all socialists/collectivists about "it all because of your initial conditions" for redistribution of income by hard taxing any working man. Those people at the beginning of the 20th century living much poorer than we are today and finding all ways to make money. Classical capitalism that allows a small entrepreneur to find their way to provide something back to the society.

Those people at the beginning of the 20th century living much poorer than we are today and finding all ways to make money. Classical capitalism that allows a small entrepreneur to find their way to provide something back to the society. Also, a very nice view back on what amount of jobs have been eliminated by automation or by new technologies. And how richer is any person today. And how much we owe to the progress. On the other side, for a person that knows what he likes to do and made that his profession, the book is probably not so much of a value.

    One of the best books(written during old times of Great Depression) recommended by Warren Buffet. The principles are still valid and one can find beautiful nuggets of business, marketing and communications while skimming/reading through 600 pages.

    A great passable book... if you want to be a salesman in the 1940s. This book is 75% case studies and nearly all of them are identical and not in-depth where it's important: Person had $50 and spent it all on Thing and worked really hard to sell/advertise Thing to Buyer and now Person's business is worth $200,000. Now you don't need to read the book. A great passable book... if you want to be a salesman in the 1940s.

    I understand that this book inspired Warren Buffet but it is dated, too much motherhood and apple pie, and not enough meaningful information. Mostly a book that says, 'you can do it!' Don't recommend - believe me. I understand that this book inspired Warren Buffet but it is dated, too much motherhood and apple pie, and not enough meaningful information.
