5 out of 5 Stars - "Despite his status as a 3-time Inc.(TM) 500 CEO and Technical Emmy(R) Award recipient, author Don Daglow delivers no-nonsense knowledge like some favorite uncle who made it big, but remains warm and generous... From Dream to Delivery radically differs from the "Buy My Book, Make Millions In One Year " mindset... Daglow teaches organization of thought and sequencing of specific goals, including the micro-steps often conveniently ignored in similar books." - IndieReader, February, 2019
"As a CEO I've read numerous how-to books on entrepreneurship, strategic planning and management. But now that I have two daughters who dream of starting their own 'dream projects, ' this is the book I will suggest they read. It covers the entire landscape from dreaming, to planning, to execution. It is thorough yet concise... It combines stories, examples, and how-to steps to teach and challenge... I've known this author for years, yet in reading this book I have continued to learn from him, and I believe that anyone with responsibility in for-profit and nonprofit organizations will find it helpful." -- G Rollie Adams, CEO Emeritus, The Strong National Museum of Play
