Reviews - What do customers think about Managing a Small Business Made Easy?

Disappointing  Mar 31, 2008
This book disappoints in many ways. Here are a few of them.

1. The layout of the book is amateurish. Unfortunately, while the author has many important things to say, he thinks that nearly everything is really, really important, and so he constantly uses italics and bold to emphasize his points, not realizing, I suppose, that when everything is highlighted, nothing stands out.

2. The book is not well organized. I suspect the author started with the chapter headings, and then filled in the text. But in several chapters the text has little to do with the topic at hand.

3. The purpose and audience of the book is not clear to me. Some chapters are very elementary, others are much more complex. The author makes the mistake of thinking he can explain double-entry bookkeeping in a few pages, which I know from experience is a losing proposition. Other sections are quite superficial. For example, the chapter on Advertising and Promotion isn't much more than a laundry-list of suggestions.

4. I thought the business plan example in the Appendix was weak. Let's put it this way - I wouldn't invest my money based on this plan!

Things I did like:

There is a lot of real world experience reflected here, it is just too hard to find the diamond in the rough. I did like that he emphasizes the importance of coordinating with insurance agents, attorneys, bankers and accountants. But the author should have taken his own advice and hired an expert (in this case, an editor), to polish the book before it was published.

In summary:

I would not recommend this book to budding entrepreneurs. There are other, more focused and better written books, that cover the same territory.
SMMGR  Jul 10, 2006
This book is very well written. Lots of good information to assist the start-up company and/or potential new business owner.

If someone is contemplating starting a business and they dont have time to attend a week long seminar on "How to Start a Business" put on by the Small Business Association, this is a very informative book. The book covers everything in the SBA Seminar. Mr. Davis draws nicely from his personal experience which lends additional interest to his subject.
