    Everybody should read this book. I mean, literally everybody. If you're someone interested in business, it will expand your horizons by showing you things far outside of your industry, market, or area of expertise. If you're someone looking for nuggets of wisdom to drive your personal success, it will present a curated collection of them from around the world.

If you're someone interested in business, it will expand your horizons by showing you things far outside of your industry, market, or area of expertise. If you're someone looking for nuggets of wisdom to drive your personal success, it will present a curated collection of them from around the world. If you're someone interested in travel, it will show you parts of the world you've likely never been to, and equally as likely wouldn't have the courage to visit. If you're someone who simply likes good, people-centric stories, it's chock full of them. If you're someone who's none of those things, you, above all others, should challenge yourself and take this book on. It will open your eyes to goings-on in the world that we all need to know about. “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts." So said someone wise, reputedly Mark Twain. The next best thing to getting on a plane is picking up this book. Impatient reader (like me)? No worries. The author's writing style makes for fast, easy reading, and convenient navigation between stories and within stories, so you can jump around and find the parts that will interest you the most. But chances are you'll be riveted from the beginning and will go straight through, cover to cover. I can't recommend this highly enough. We owe the author a debt of gratitude for doing the legwork to put these stories and lessons in front of us in so palatable a format.

    So many great stories that he collected from around the world. I really enjoyed some of these vignettes to learn more about the person behind the business and the creativity/resourcefulness of so many of the people profiled. I like focus on businesses that make a bigger difference. I think this book would be especially good for those thinking about creating their own business, especially in the social impact space, but also for those willing to bring more innovation and entrepreneurial spirit to So many great stories that he collected from around the world.

There are plenty of practical tips and also helpful patterns that emerge from reading his various encounters with entrepreneurs around the world. Note: I voluntarily requested, read, and reviewed this book. Thank you to the author, publisher, and NetGalley for sending me a temporary digital advance reading copy/advance review (ARC) galley of this book in exchange for an honest review. As always, my opinions are my own and do not represent my co-host or the podcast. I request, read, and review many books prior to publication to explore possible future guests for the podcast. I wish we could interview the author of every one of these books because I'm so impressed by the creativity, thoughtfulness, and wisdom shared through the temporary books I get through NetGalley.

    This is a great book that has many inspiring stories not only on law but entrepreneurship. It highlights how many entrepreneurs faced challenges in their lives (whether with their businesses or even in their personal lives, and approaches they took to endure these difficulties). This book has a great structure and is easy to read as its chapters are short and have titles separating each section within the chapter by themes. I also love the key takeaways at the end! Definitely recommend this book This is a great book that has many inspiring stories not only on law but entrepreneurship.

    This is a must read! Reading over the stories that he has experienced from across the world has inspired me to go out there and explore the world even more. Each story is so unique in the way that one may focus more on the legal aspects of starting a business and another story may focus on the obstacles of starting a business and how to overcome them. Each story has some sort of advice and tips to take away which I always look forward to when reading the stories.

    Such a great book! I learned so much about business, law, and just that so many things can connect to each other. It was extremely interesting to read all of these stories from around the world; it gives you a much larger perspective on life and how people can come from near bankruptcy to a successful entrepreneur, or how one can use their ideas for the benefit of society as a whole.

    The book is very interesting as it gives insights to international business and how they began. It is also a very personal book since the author personally experienced being in these businesses. The stories are truly inspiring since they are real life situations.

    He stories from this book will inspire and make you believe that good things happen in this world. Even in hard situations there is always a person who takes it on and has the drive to make dreams come true and not simply their own but the dreams that can make the world around them a better place.

    This book is amazing. The stories from across the world explain how business law is in everyday life, including illicit activities! If you care about law, entrepreneurship or just want a good read I highly recommend this book. -Andrew Pollard
