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.
