Ignore the overheated title. This is a thoughtful, practical, no-nonsense book which will probably be of greatest value to owners/CEOs of smaller organizations. Sturgeon and Fitzpatrick obviously draw upon a wealth of real-world experience as they provide what amounts to a "reality check" for decision-makers who are currently unwilling and/or unable to extricate themselves from day-to-day (hour-to-hour) firefighting. The excellent material is carefully organized within 12 chapters, followed by "A Work Sheet for Taking Action." Throughout the cohesive narrative, Sturgeon and Fitzpatrick suggest almost 200 "tools" and, at this point in my review, I offer a word of caution. As one of my favorite aphorisms suggests, if all you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail. It would be lunacy to agree with everything Sturgeon and Fitzpatrick say, worse yet to implement all of their suggestions. Think of them as co-proprietors of a "hardware store" for entrepreneurs. Tag along as they show you what they have available. Pretend that you have a "tool box" and fill it only with what will be most helpful now, today, but remember which other "tools" are also available. You may need several of them later, and perhaps sooner than you now think. With regard to "A Work Sheet for Taking Action," I offer the same advice. Modify it to ensure that it is wholly appropriate to your own organization's specific needs, interests, strengths, weaknesses, resources, opportunities, etc.
I also recommend this book to those only recently embarked on a business career as well as to others now in middle-management positions who are taking on increasingly more important responsibilities in larger organizations. The business principles which Sturgeon and Fitzpatrick affirm will enable less-experienced executives to make better decisions themselves, and, to play a more active, more productive role when involved with others in a decision-making process. Those who share my high regard for this book are urged to check out Rex P. Gatto's The Smart Manager's FAQ Guide, Mark Allen's Visionary Business, Tom Asacker's Sandbox Wisdom, and Rob Ryan's Entrepreneur America.

If you own a business, you need to read this book. This book is not flashy or glamorous, the business that these authors were in is obviously not sexy. But the insights that they shared are the basic things relative to any small business out there from used auto parts to a lumber yard. As a business owner myself, I have been in the habit of reading any book I feel would be valuable to my personal and business growth. This book fits that description. There are too many books out there written by PHD's and the like that have never really had success in the private sector and don't know what tools I need to succeed. The book is written in a format that is easy to read and gets right to the point. You immediately get the sense that these guy's are regular folks just like us, and with that you can picture yourself achieving the success that they have. there advice is a mixture of basic commonsense and some very intelligent business skills only aquired through trial and error. If your looking for a book hyped up with the latest fads of business theory, look elswhere. this book is excellent because it's just downright basic nuts and bolts of everyday business.essentially the stuff you need to succeed. I highly recomend it.

I read the book twice and found it very practical and helpful in my business. I'm not a salvage yard owner, like these guys, but they used methods and concepts that were transferable to any business. In the first chapter I found a strategy to apply to my company that has already begun to make a difference in my bottom line.
I sincerely recommended that every serious business owner order this book and read it. It is full of excellent advice from two guys with practical experience. It's a thick book with over 240 printed pages, 12 jam-packed chapters and an easy to use index. I like the book because it's a follow-the-dotted-line, do-what-it-says-and-succeed, how-to book. If you've ever wished you could be a "fly on the wall" to find out how these two guys turned their businesses into money making machines, here's your chance to find out how they did it. When you get this book, you must find a quiet place, take your hi-lighter in hand, and get prepared for action.
