"I highly recommend this book. It gives real live stories of not only one but over 20 successful billionaire entrepreneurs. It’s not only a great pleasure to read this book, but I think it gives real exciting and valuable insights on how these entrepreneurs became so successful and how they built their fortune. And all of them did it from scratch. They did not inherit a family fortune. These are the real life stories of entrepreneurs who started with nothing and built a billion dollar fortune. I think it’s really useful, interesting and enjoyable to read."
