Robert Herjavec has lived the classic "rags to riches" story, from having only $20 in his pocket to starting up technology companies worth hundreds of millions of dollars. The son of Croatian immigrants, Herjavec overcame the odds and amassed incredible wealth, doing it through pure hard work and determination. Today a star on television's Dragon's Den and The Shark Tank, he bankrolls the best inventions and shoots down the best intentions. And now, for the first time, he shares his hard-won wisdom in one of the most inspirational business books of the season.

Driven is organized by the work and life principles that made Robert Herjavec both wealthy and successful (indeed, these terms are not synonymous). Herjavec reveals the secrets that took him from waiting tables to growing his nascent technology company, The Herjavec Group, into a world-class conglomerate. His principles are as valuable in the living room as they are in the boardroom. Anyone can succeed, on their own terms, by following his sage but simple advice -- as long as they're willing to take chances, take control of their future and stay true to their vision.

Sorry, but this book was BORING. Not what I expected from his television personality on both Dragon's Den and Shark Tank. He doesn't have much to say, certainly nothing inspiring, and he was repeating himself before I'd read 30 pages. Don't bother reading this one.

Okay, basic business type book. A little more appealing because he seems to reject the 'cold, hard facts' type of attitude that I get from some business types.
