Moules's book is an interesting collection of stories from some of the most prominent and successful entrepreneurs the UK has to offer..There is much to be gained from reading about other people's crises and errors, and their imaginative methods for resolving them. Though this is not a reference book, it contains nuggets of advice and practical information that most people building a business would be grateful to hear.
