'How to Business' reviews
What readers are saying
What immediately struck me after reading through ‘How to Business’ was Pieter’s approach to explaining what could be complex matters in such a simple way. Often times, we over-complicate ideas in business. But, this book was easy-to-follow and gave me the confidence to use the lessons in everyday situations.
I have been a successful entrepreneur for over 30 years. However, I am always looking for ways to further my business knowledge. In ‘How to Business’, van der Merwe offers a wide range of business ideas that I may have overlooked in the past and am truly excited about adding into my repertoire. This man genuinely knows his business and the book makes for an interesting and informative read.
If you are an entrepreneur, young or old, you need to read ‘How to Business’. Unlike many business theory books, the author uses his own personal experience to explain business ideas and back them up with evidence of their use.
This is a far cry from the typical books written by professors or those who have studied business ideas, but never actually used them in the crucial situations. Do yourself a favour and read this book because no matter the industry you are in, you are bound to pick up some powerful tips about conducting business.
In my opinion, “How to Business” is what every business book should be. It blends engaging storytelling with education, resulting in something that grasps your attention while delivering the lessons in a way that anybody in the business spectrum can understand. A fantastic book that I highly recommend to anyone interested in the business field.
The book description stresses the fact that it will provide ‘real-world business lessons’ from the viewpoint of somebody that has worked as a business lawyer for decades. It does not disappoint. Upon reading, you will realize that everything shared is rooted in past successes, making the lessons much easier to comprehend.
The explanations that van der Merwe provides to support his theories truly gives you the confidence to integrate them into your own business life. Plus, the autobiographical nature of the book makes it much more attractive of a read than a textbook-style business book that is just explaining concepts.
I’ve read through the book twice and passed it along to my partners, as I believe the information shared from an experienced business lawyer is applicable to all business situations.
