Jul 12, 2015 ScaryЕ but very interesting)
I read the first few pages of «Worst Friend – Best Enemy» and got scared… I got scared, because the thoughts, emotions and views of the main characters described so vividly by the author, coincide with my own – as if I looked at myself from the inside. Or from a bird’s eye view. It’s scary to see and assess yourself like that… but very interesting! How did the author manage that? I have no idea… I am going to make myself some coffee, gather some courage, and continue reading)

I am absolutely sure that:
- success of each person is in his own hands,
- success of an organization depends on its leader,
- success of a leader in many ways depends on a cooperating with him Adviser (Consultant).

Jun 26, 2015 The best book I've ever red about creating a business in Russia

This novel captured my mind and heart from the very beginning and gave me a lot of fun time during the reading. The author covered all the aspects of the businessman life: his daily routine of creating a new business; personal motivations in his private life and spiritual growth as a result of the best way of making himself.

I strongly recommend this book to everyone!
