    Now I'm the type of person who avoids reality style with a passion and while not real reality TV I did class Dragons Den in a similar genreBut with spending some time away from home in hotelstravelling I did watch a couple of episodes just to kill timeSo when I saw this book for sale on Audible I remembered the programme and James Caan All I knew about him was that fact that he was on Dragons Den and no bout having a couple a credits on my audible account and nothing else that I fancied book wise I decided to take the plunge with this bookI am so glad I did as well the book also read by James Caan is from beginning to end a very interesting story It is nice to see a person who to all intents and purposes starred out with just the shirt on his back make it so far in life From his struggles to break free from the family business to finding his future wife with a few untruths the creation of the recruitment agency in a top floor office and then through the rest of his life with his charitable workThe book is week writtenread and give a good picture of the challenges that James faced throughout his careerI can now look at James in a different light though I still don't think I will watch Dragons Den So I'd recommend this book to anyone with a an interest in James from his time on Dragons Den or b an interest in how someone transforms their life from starting with very little to being responsible for a multi million pound organisation

    Interesting book I also find when someone writes out there story like this the circular nature of life and coincidences become so apparent A useful book with advice for going into business if you have his same characteristics not afraid to ask uestions and have a lot of confidence in yourself Humanitarian work was also inspiring and admirable using his powers for good

    James Caan's autobiography is very interesting because James was an English entrepreneur who succeeded through operational excellence His company was an executive recruitment firm and therefore had no specific technological advantage so when James Caan saw an opportunity he developed his skills and approach until he found the strategy that worked then continued refining it to perfectionI found his approach interesting He identified an opportunity then went away changing his pitch until he found the right strategy over the course of weeks Also because he needed to be seen as a established firm he always named his endeavors with people's names that gave the impression he wanted rather than his own nameAll in all it was an interesting read about behind one of the popular entrepreneurs from Dragon's Den

    Never again I had to finish this book because I started it by mistake some years ago and it was just holding on me like a burden That was a mistake and I should have dump it all the way down the toiletThis book doesn't have any point nothing useful or interesting has been shared written as journal of a illiterate undergraduate Ordinary and boring I saved my father because I helped this hospital I made such a good decisions here and there I went helping kids to get into school in Pakistan blah blah blah I don't mind this to be written for himself and for the family of his I don't want to read all this It was my fault to even start reading book by this Dragon' Den investor geniusSome people's desire to write a book especially autobiography one should be prohibited on all levels

    I read this book back a few years ago and I decided to read it again now that I'm older have experience in the world of work in recruitment in particular and am determined than ever that a life of entrepreneurship is for me Since working in recruitment and knowing how tough it is on a daily basis even with all the tools available for me the internet training best practice computers I've come to respect James even now that I can appreciate what he's accomplished with just a phone and the yellow pages There's a lot for me to learn from this book I'll be sure to remember them and put them into practice one day

    Brilliant book It started off a little slow but then tells you about how James created a recruitment firm out of nothing how it went through recession and how he franchised a second recruitment company It then tells about his second career as a venture capitalist and his experiences on Dragon's Den It is full of tips and wisdom about entrepreneurship and business in general Also what to look out for if you fancy pitching to the DragonsHe seems like a very nice humble guy and hats off to what he is trying to achieve with his charity work in Pakistan and other places
