Tom Golisano is the founder and CEO of Paychex, which went from a shoestring operation to a $3.8 billion company with more than 15,000 employees. His book's 184 pages are filled with lessons for new entrepreneurs, based on what Golisano learned the hard way, and with rollicking tales of his first entrepreneurial ventures.  It's a quick read that sounds more like a conversation with a very wise mentor, and it's filled with very practical advice on establishing, building, managing and selling your venture. At the end of each chapter is a bullet list of key "takeaways."
