The Knack – Norm Brodsky and Bo Burlingham

“How Street-Smart Entrepreneurs Learn to Handle Whatever Comes Up”

I wish I blogged about this book right after I read it. I really, really liked it and had a bunch of thoughts that I have promptly forgotten. I actually think I may have read it before, or at least I think a lot of the stories in it must have appeared in Norm’s monthly column in Inc. magazine.

Writing a book about entrepreneurship is difficult. How can you give advice to someone who you have no idea what kind of business they are running, what markets they are in, what skills or start-up they have, etc. This book tries to deal with a more philosophical level, and I think it gives some great practical advice as well.

Again – case studies. I think I really, really like books with case studies. That, and Norm kind of feels like a grandpa. Not MY grandpa, but a grandpa I would like.

I really need to start taking notes.
