Professional Reviews

"This book is about creating something awesome. It's that simple. If you're thinking about starting up a business that adds value to the world, read this book." John Harthorne, Founder and CEO, MassChallenge

"This book is an easy read and gets you to think a lot about yourself and the way you could change to create something very special. All you have to do is to change your mindset, believe in yourself and things will start to turn around. What can take you years and years of experience you can learn in a few hours reading this book." Steven Smith, Founder of Poundland and One Price Shopping

"Over the past five years I've watched Jim Duffy do magical things for entrepreneurs in helping them turn ideas into commercial realities. Through 'Create Special' Jim opens up enterprise potential to thousands more, with advice that’s succinct and spot-on. I look forward to seeing the impact of this book, with an economy powered by lots more lobsters!" Emma Jones, Founder, Enterprise Nation

"A must-read, practical, down-to-earth and mindset-changing book. Everything it recommends works in practice and is backed up by experience not psychobabble. Anyone can learn how to develop new, more effective ways of thinking and acting as an entrepreneur as a result of this short, no-holds-barred book. I love the way Jim Duffy is brutally honest about himself, newbie entrepreneurs, peers, celebrity entrepreneurs and, of course, his favourite movies. It's a page turner!" Tony Robinson OBE, 'Freedom from Bosses Forever' Author & Speaker

"An engaging read, which stands out from the dozens of 'how-to' books out there. Jim Duffy does not offer an 'entrepreneurial formula', nor does he purport that building a business is the only reason to be entrepreneurial. He does (rather forcefully!) drive home the point that you can and should change to an entrepreneurial mindset by forcing yourself out of your comfort zone and begin to truly believe in yourself." Abhijeet Bhalla, Co-Founder, Viridian Group
