Though the most current volume that I could find to date is published in 2005, I am Very Pleased with my investment of this book. The Basics in creating a great business plan haven't changed that much that the information here would not be helpful.
The size and original overview of this book, I found overwhelming when first received. But after taking a little more time, (I would suggest a Chapter by Chapter quick overview, and Tab the first few Chapters you would find useful) it is starting to come together and make sense. Taking the time to Tab a few Chapters at a time will save you tons of time in setting up the structure and outlining to your goal.
Then, once your basic outline is down on paper, review and pick the next few Chapters which you would find useful.
I am just starting to follow through on the beginning structuring, and in spite of some of the terminology as being a bit intimidating, it is like I mentioned earlier, it makes more sense to me once I thumbed through and found the most useful information first.
Once the beginning structure is established, it is easier to follow through on the pending tasks that lay ahead, taking small sections at a time.
I have purchase a few Business Plan aids, and so far, this is the one I have stuck with, as it is the easiest to follow.
Congratulations on taking a big step into reaching your business goal, and I wish you the best of luck in your endeavors.
