Knockout Entrepreneur by George Foreman with Ken Abraham

Description from the book:
In an era of bankruptcy and bailouts, two-time Heavyweight Champion of the World and record-busting businessman George Foreman steps into the ring to challenge prevailing conceptions of success and achievementt and lays out a new way of doing business-the way of a Knockout Entrepreneuer.
Foreman equips you with principles and strategies to help you come out swinging and backs them up withpersonal stories, contemporary accounts of success, timeless wisdom, and leading questions-all of which are geared to help you put your Knockout plan into action and achieve levels of success.

My take on the selection:
Wow! I got mixed reviews on this book. First, let me say, I picked it because I love Boxing and George Foreman. I also have an appreciation for Business. I was quite keen on reading it. I thought it would focus mostly on Business. However just as his career, the main focus clearly was based on his Boxing. That made me somewhat disappointed. Being a fan, I've known of his career. I didn't know much of his entrepreneurial abilities, and that's what I found intriguing. For me, he used his Boxing as every metaphor. He did talk about specific endeavors he has either taken on, or considered. Just not enough to think this is a Business book.
On the other hand, his ideals and principles I rather enjoyed. I believe he has the right mind set to have a happy and successful life, that shows. I did feel good reading his enlightening moments, or words of encouragement. You know he is being truthful in his writing, and his nature in thinking are the moments in the book that capture you.
Would I recommend this to anyone? That I'm unsure of. It would have to be someone really down on their luck, and feeling bad about themselves. This would be a great pick-me-up book. As for avid readers and "bookies", I'm afraid not. It was a little slow-paced for me. I did learn a couple of things, but about George, not me.



  1. I love, love George Foreman. I didn't realize he had written a few books. This one on your page is one I want to read so badly. All of his kids are named George. He's a good guy. You wrote a really good review. I'm not interesting in reading about the "boxing" either.

Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
