Theo Paphitis Enter the Dragon

Theo Paphitis 
Enter the Dragon

Theo Paphitis' story is a remarkable one. A Cypriot immigrant, he battled with dyslexia, worked as a tea boy at Lloyd's brokers and had a first insight into retail by selling watches in London's West End. At 23 he founded his first company, but it was in 1995 that he took his biggest risk: taking control of the loss-making stationers Rymans. Taking over enterprises is why he was a natural choice for the BBC hit show Dragons Den. 

My View
I love Dragons Den and the cast of Dragons Den, that's why i got this book. I really enjoyed some parts of the book like when he was growing up and the retail side of the book. I didn't so much enjoy when he took over Millwall Football Club and maybe it would have been better if it had more about his life and the new business that he's going into. Other then that it was a good read.
