Anyone can do it

If Duncan Bannatyne can do it, so can you! Or so he’d like you to believe. With a title like “Anyone can do it” I was expecting a blueprint for succeeding in business but instead got more of an autobiograhy of DB’s life, from his tough upbringing to helping children out in Romania.

I’m not saying it’s a bad book, as quite the opposite. DB’s story is both engaging and interesting. The book also vaguely backs up his on screen character of being a bit of an arrogant cock, but none the less he does a lot of good charity work and is loyal to the ones who are loyal back. He’s had his fair share of ups and downs and on the face of it he totally deserves the wealth he’s accumulated over the years.

The book opens with the line “Making 100 million is so easy anyone can do it” and the book seems to be one long contradiction to it. I still prefer the Felix Dennis book by far, as that is a proper “how to succeed” book interlaced with personal examples rather then one long story that tries to suggest what it’s getting at through it’s chapter names.

Read it. It only took me a few days to plough through which is a record by my standards!
