Knockout Entrepreneur by George Foreman (Book Review)

As the title suggests, this book is about entrepreneurship. It is about being a champion in business but the principles shared in the book can be applied to other areas of life as well.

George Foreman shares with the readers the knowledge and insight that he has gained regarding business from being a world famous former Heavyweight Boxing Champion and presently a well known entrepreneur.

He shares fourteen principles in the book, that have helped him succeed both in boxing and business. He writes about the tough times and struggles he faced, the mistakes he made and how he overcame them and what he learnt from them. Even though some of the principles might not be new to readers who are familiar with business books, there are certain things that you can learn from the stories that he shares from his life.

There are a lot of leadership principles and lessons that can be applied to everyday life. The questions at the end of each chapter help with coming up with ideas and plans that can be implemented in the readers life.

The book will also be a good read for anyone interested in biographies since he shares a lot of stories from his life. If gives you an opportunity to get to know the person.

I would recommend this book for anyone that is looking for practical principles and help in business or leadership. Even though the book mainly focuses on entrepreneurship, the principles can be applied in school and work as well.

Happy reading!
