Guitar Lessons: A Life's Journey Turning Passion into Business

Author: Bob Taylor

Book Site: Guitar Lessons

Bob Taylor mixes the details of his experience as a tradesman and cofounder of Taylor Guitars, a world-famous acoustic and electric guitar manufacturer, with philosophical life lessons that have practical application for building a business.

Guitar Lessons is an appealing narrative of overcoming business pitfalls by a successful entrepreneur. You follow Taylor’s discovery of his business acumen. You will identify with challenges such as working with a large client -- in this case, with Rothchild, which sells the guitars. You also get insights into the decision-making processes necessary to manufacturing and selling a product.

Taylor does not skip details like the financial and personal choices he made along the way -- choosing to marry while still struggling with company earnings and his take-home pay. Taylor balances between displaying knowledge of his industry and catering to the layperson's understanding.
