I Made a Few Hundred Million... I Lost a Few Hundred Million
You may have been intrigued by the title of this post. It's a line from Wayne McVicker's book: Starting Something: An Entrepreneur's Tale of Control, Confrontation, and Corporate Culture.

Wayne started the company Neoforma, which went IPO during the Dot Com era.

We'll be reviewing the book next week when the Business Blog Book Tour arrives here at Small Business Trends.

Todd at A Penny For blog puts all the Tours together (and does a great job, I might add).

Here's how the Business Blog Book Tour works. Everyone on the Tour gets a review copy of the book, compliments of the author. We read it. Then each of us is assigned a designated day when the Tour stops at our blog.

That's it. There are no other rules.

We are free to say whatever we like, good or bad. We can write a book review, do an interview of the author, open the day up for questions to the author, and so on.

Here at Small Business Trends, Wayne has agreed to do audio. It'll be a little unique -- an audio book review, with the author doing most of the talking.

Want the inside scoop on going through an IPO? Want to know what it feels like to make a few hundred million and lose a few hundred million? Come and listen.

If you're not into audio, don't worry. We'll also have some material in writing. Wayne's going to give us a peek into the backstory of publishing the book, which he self-published. Even Dot Com millionaires are into self-publishing, these days. It's quite the trend.

So be sure to join us next Friday. Ours is the last stop on the Tour. Until then, please visit the other Book Tour stops at these fine blogs:
Feb. 21 - Businesspundit
Feb. 22 - WhatsNextBlog
Feb. 23 - 800-CEO-READ
Feb. 24 - Barry Moltz's blog
Feb. 25 - Small Business Trends
