This is a great book if your looking for motivation to launch a business or improve on one. It gives a brief background on each person, the pivotel moment, than like a lasting "mission statement" each of them live by. There isnt an overall secret to success cause they all "made it" to the top differently. I was hoping for more rags to riches stories but most of them got thousands loaned to them or inherited theyre businesses but its still interesting none the less
