NEWS & OPINION: 6 Secrets to Startup Success

Posted April 8, 2011, 7:29 AM with category of General Business
We've been talking a lot about entrepreneurship lately here, and the discussion continues today around a recent book by John Bradberry, called, 6 Secrets to Startup Success: How to Turn Your Entrepreneurial Passion Into a Thriving Business. I first met author John Bradberry at the 2010 800-CEO-READ Author Pow Wow and was intrigued by his realistic view of business in an era where the popular message was to simply follow passion. As we discussed, and as John digs deep into within his book, is that passion is not nearly enough to create success. Read more

Posted January 6, 2011, 7:16 PM with category of The Company
After an always busy year-end of hosting our Author Pow-Wow, reading and judging books for our 800-CEO-READ Business Book Awards, producing our annual review of business books, planning our Book Awards Party in New York City, trying to keep up with our more mundane and unsung daily tasks, and working on our secret, obviously unannounced plans of world-domination, we're beginning to see the light here in the New Year.

NEWS & OPINION: The 800-CEO-READ Business Book Awards of 2009

Posted December 15, 2009, 3:00 PM with category of General Business
The 800-CEO-READ Business Book of the Year Too Big to Fail: The Inside Story of How Wall Street and Washington Fought to Save the Financial System—And Themselves by Andrew Ross Sorkin, Viking Books, 624 pages, $32. 95 Even though Too Big to Fail was written during the same year the financial collapse occurred, Andrew Ross Sorkin has written what we predict will be the definitive book on the subject. Sorkin not only tells a gripping “perfect storm” story—reporting the gory details as our 401k’s disappeared and our financial system became nationalized—but he humanizes the players as well, resulting in an imminently readable, albeit lengthy, book.
