The inspiring true story of Shark Tank star Barbara Corcoran--and her best advice for anyone starting a business. After failing at twenty-two jobs, Barbara Corcoran borrowed $1,000 from a boyfriend, quit her job as a diner waitress, and started a tiny real estate office in New York City. Using the unconventional lessons she learned from her homemaker mom, she gradually built it into a $6 billion dollar business. Now Barbara's even more famous for the no-nonsense wisdom she offers to entrepreneurs on Shark Tank, ABC's hit reality TV show.
Shark Tales is down-to-earth, frank, and as heartwarming as it is smart. After reading it don't be surprised if you find yourself thinking, "If she can do it, so can I." Nothing would make Barbara happier.

I received a paperback copy of this book at a conference. I am not a big reader, but I couldn’t put this book down. So much so that my puppy Tiggy took it upon himself to tear the book up and eat almost 30 pages. This led me to purchase the book on my iPad so I could finish and keep a version not to be devoured again. 😬
Loved this book and will definitely recommend it to family and friends! It was a fun, easy and interesting read. I liked how transparent Barbara is throughout the book. She colors each story very well and is not shy about being human.
Love the book! Barbara is truly inspiring! Can't wait to read more from her.
