Synopsis

James Caan is one of Britain's most successful entrepreneurs. Dropping out of school at just sixteen, he started his business life with no qualifications and two pieces of advice: 'observe the masses and do the opposite' and 'always look for opportunities where both parties benefit'. Armed with just these two pieces of fatherly wisdom, extraordinary charm and the yellow pages, James Caan built a market-leading business with a turnover of more than GBP130 million from a broom cupboard."The Real Deal" is the incredible story of James' remarkable life. From his childhood as a Pakistani immigrant to the phenomenal success of his first company, this book traces James Caan's journey to both financial and personal maturity. It deals with his fear at realising his goals too early, and offers a frank account of what success at 30 really means. "The Real Deal" brings us bang up to the present, including the truth about his role on Dragons' Den, what his charity work in Kashmir means to him, and how he has come to completely re-evaluate what money is really worth.
