No B.S. Business Success by Dan Kennedy

Dan Kennedy has been called the "Professor of Harsh Reality" because he's provocative, irreverent, sarcastic and tells it like it is in a humorous, but chillingly serious fashion that cuts to the core of the issues in a way no other business author does. You want sugar-coated clichés that go down easy? Seek them elsewhere - this book isn't for the faint of heart. Kennedy steers you along the bumpy road to growing a business, showing you potholes all along the way.

Expose yourself to Dan's "25 Eternal Business Truths," and prepare for a lot of chin-rubbing insight. Get his take on your sales, cash flow, payroll, productivity, and on getting out of trouble wherever it arises. It's the kind of street-wise wisdom his readers (and high-paying consulting clients) swear by - all the way to the bank.
