Description

The Real Deal After dropping out of school at just sixteen, James Caan started his business life in a broom cupboard with no qualifications and two pieces of fatherly wisdom: 'observe the masses and do the opposite' and 'always look for opportunities where both parties benefit'. Armed with this advice, natural charm and the Yellow Pages, he built a market-leading business with a turnover of £130 million and swiftly became one of Britain's most successful entrepreneurs.

From Caan's childhood as a Pakistani immigrant to the phenomenal success of his first company and beyond, The Real Deal traces both his financial and personal achievements. It offers a frank account of what success at thirty really signifies and brings us right up to the present, including his impact on Dragons' Den and what his charity work, from saving a hospital in London to building a school in Lahore, means to him. Ultimately, it is a story of learning what money is really worth, told by one the country's most insightful businessmen.

    While James Caan is not the best orator in the world and some of the presentation is not as fluent as some presentations, as least he has made the effort to narrate it himself unlike some other autobiographies and for this he must be aplauded. The book itself is excellent and details both his personal life and his business life with emphasis his life lessons but done without preaching them. You come away inspired and ready to tweek your own way of doing business based on his life experiences. This is also a very long audiobook and for £6.49 is money well spent. Recommended.
