A 4-star review on Amazon.com (A book all entrepreneurs should read.):

Victoria, the author, suggests to read this book as you would read a novel, without planning to take any notes and so I did, at least I tried!

For a book that focuses primarily on how to take control of your business using business rules, it feels nothing like standard textbook. It is as if the author is personally narrating you the journey she went through to either understand or explain the concept to someone. In doing so she slowly unravels all the terms and definitions needed to understand certain concepts and finishes with the epiphany that summaries everything in lay man’s terms.

While the author doesn’t question’s the reader’s intelligence, she does interject at the right moment with simple analogies, making it easy to understand concepts that can be vague or confusing. That being said, business rules is no child’s play, which is evident with all the real world examples presented in the book.

The only downside is that you can’t just read the book once and feel you got everything. If you are a young entrepreneur, there will be aspects in this book that will go over your head or even feel its is completely unrelated to your business. To be honest, I felt the same when reading it. While I did take my share of notes, I do feel one must get back to the book every time one’s business evolves, to make the most of it.

I would recommended this book to my entrepreneur friends, irrespective how young or experienced they are to the world of business.
