Book Review - Zero To One Million by Ryan Allis

Packed full of content Ryan’s book is a nice combination of his story and his “how to”. More slanted towards those who want to take a business from start up to a medium sized exit strategy (as opposed to small / micro business) it’s easy to read and has some great exercises. My only criticism was that I wanted to hear more about Ryan’s business icontact and less about the company he was working in as teen. When you read it, grab a pen and paper though as the ideas come fast and you’ll get the most by writing a to do list as you go.
