"The thoughts derived from this book could help anyone access to Michael Dell, one of the greatest capitalists of all time. Here Mr. Dell makes his efforts in his journey seem somewhat "easy" to do. Nothing could be more further than the truth. It takes a lot of persistence, experimentation, courage and a keen eye to spot opportunities to create a multi-billion global empire from scratch (Maybe he is just downplaying his success, or maybe he knows something which we don't?) Yet in the midst of that, what stands out like the candle in the night is his ability to craft the most successful strategies.
Underpinned by common sense and knowledge about customers needs, the master stratagem were able to create massive value in the market. It is somewhat in his genetic makeup or upbringing (his mother was a stockbroker) that made him that way. For instance, even at the tender age twelve, he managed to earned $2,000 just by selling stamps. At sixteen, $18,000 by selling newspaper subscriptions in just one year (What were most of us doing at his age?)
A good book, one which should be possessed and read upon by those who wish to get into the mind of a Capitalist." - Amazon Review.
