Customer Reviews

Unquestionably the best business plan guide out today,  April 7, 2011

I have been doing business plans for several years now and Abrams' book is the best out there. It is clearly written, informative without being overly detailed and it walks the reader step-by-step through the business plan writing process. The book provides methods and items to perform research and does a solid job of explaining the difficult job of preparing projected financial statements. I cannot understand why anyone would give this book a disappointing review. The few bad reviews that I've read criticize the book for everything that makes it such a strong read. All in all, a great update to an already excellent book. Highly recommended.
