Book Review: Knockout Entrepreneur

As a blogger reviewer for Thomas Nelson I recently read Knockout Entrepreneur, by George Foreman with Ken Abraham. Yes, George Foreman, two-time Heavyweight Champion of the World and promoter of the George Foreman Grill. George tells the story of his business ventures, and what he has learned from both failures and successes. He invites everyone, both employer and employee, to read the book; and sets to encourage through his stories, from his boxing days and business ventures, both failures and successes.

The business advice he shares, divided by chapters, are standard rules found in any business textbook, but he uses boxing terms to explain his points. Reading the book you see that God is a major player in his life, and that we need to remember the same in our daily lives.

Overall, I would give the book a four out of five. As I mentioned before the advice is standard, but the presentation, using boxing terminology, is a fresh approach, and even interesting even if you don’t follow boxing. The book is also encouraging, not matter what you do for a living George encourages everyone to work with integrity and potential.

Thomas Nelson, the book’s publisher, entices someone to purchase this book by an unique offer, Nelsonfree offer. With the purchase of a Nelsonfree product you have purchased one book in three different formats; the hard copy, a free ebook, and a free audio version. Now, you can pick up “reading” where ever you left off, whether you are home, at the office, or on the road.
