Nice review. I generally steer clear of autobiographies like this because of the ambiguity you mention. Why write? To inspire or advise? Or because you have a lot of time on your hands and were always itching to be published? I'm not into business myself, so I can't say I'll put this one on my to-read list. But I enjoyed your review.

Thanks for the thorough review! The book sounds like one I am reading. Though the reading can be heavy and pedantic, some of the strategies discussed are interesting. I wish like you point out the author could have put more thought into the purpose for writing the book.

I don’t have the right personality for going into business. I can see this being a valuable book for others though.

Wow, this sounds like it will be a very informative read. I'm going into the business industry so I think the contents will be useful for me. At the very least, I'll learn from other people's experiences and learn what and what not to do. Thank you for the review.
