"Few books come close to Business For Beginners in its simplicity and user-friendly style. Congratulations and bravo to Frances." -- Allan holender, Host, The Homebiz Show
"Halleljuah! At last someone has offered a thorough course in business start-up that's understandable by the neophyte. I congratulate Fran, because Business For Beginners fills the niche that no one seemed to want to fill." -- Tony Wanless, Money and Small Business Writer, The Province Newspaper, British Columbia
"I'm only half-way through your book and have to honestly say that it is one of the best, if not the best book on small business I have read-and I have read lots in my time. I have found that most other small biz books are too institutional, which in most cases creates confusion, not clarity. I think it would be safe to say that there is genius in your simplicity." -- Mike Phipps, Marketing, Delta Chamber of Commerce
"The CFDC has incorporated Frances McGuckin's "Business For Beginners" into our Business Plan training course. We find the book to be especially helpful to client who are first-time entrepreneurs. The easy to read format and "back to basics" approach is just what we have been looking for in training material." -- Susanna La Chance-Watson, Community Futures Development Corp
