Refreshing and Practical++++

Martha Stewart's book, The Martha Rules, is a refreshing business book written and read by an intelligent, experienced enterpreneur at the center of, and in the forefront of, American business culture. If you're just starting up a new business, or are an experienced business owner, you will get many practical tips, suggestions and ideas from this book. This is not a book about financial management or organizational theory; it's a book about developing a winning combinations of techniques that will be useful to just about any enterprenuer. Whether you're business is small or large, I highly recommmend this book to anyone that takes business seriously.

Martha does rule! (in the business world that is)

The Martha Rules is one of the most surprising business books I have purchased in the past year. If you are seeking books on entrepreneurship, Martha's style of writing is succinct, informative, motivating and even entertaining. Her narration is extremely well done. One of the best business/entrepreneurship books in my collection. I highly, highly recommend this book.

Great read

This is a great read for anyone interested in business. Martha is clearly an intelligent business owner but also, a creative visionary! I wasn’t a Martha fan until I read her book. Now when I am having a difficult time making a business decision I ask myself “what would Martha do”. Honestly this book has improved my business. Thanks Martha.

Educational and interesting...

Martha should narrate all her books. I taught I wasn't going to be able to be so interested. I was wrong. Very educational and enlightening.

Inspiring, even in 2020

Martha has always been a mentor, her advice, story, and products inspire me every single day. My life goal is to meet Martha. This book is inspiring, even in 2020. Successful businesses are what hold up the United States, without these we start to fall. Capitalism and the strive for quality and excellence is what makes America great. Hopefully we can keep America great. I would highly recommend this book to anyone with a business or that is ambitious.
