How to Start a Business in Texas / Entrepreneur Press
Review: (Required): 

This is a Texas specific book on how to start a business. This is part of the Smart Start series which have been put out for all 50 states and it comes with a CD loaded with sample forms, checklists, business plans, and letters tailored for the Lone Star state.

The set lists local, state and federal agencies that can help you start a business in Texas. It also offers a wealth of information and statistics such as population, median income, consumption rates, business grants and incentives, industry trends as well as essential information for start ups such as taxation, employer responsibilities, business name selection, permits and licensing, etc…

Most impressive was the informative given in the Choice of Legal Entity chapter, such critically important information is sadly most often lightly brushed on or completely left out of most small business books. After that chapter, my favorites were: Initial Business Concerns, Sources of Business Assistance, Business Start-Up Details, Your Business' Structure, Your Smart Business Plan, and Obtaining the Financing You Need.

Unfortunately, I found the Marketing chapter to be quite superficial with hardly any information on using the internet as a marketing tool, and the chapter on Setting up your Office didn’t offer any advice on tax deductions. The Insurance chapter failed to mention errors and omissions insurance and fobbed the reader off with a statement that liability insurance is beyond the scope of the book and you should consult with an agent.

Javier Huerta is a great friend of mine. This book is so profound. An up and

Texan tells a true story of the famous Mier Expedition into Mexico
Review: (Required): 

Short, actually 24 pages, not 23 as catalogued, account of the Mier Foray into
Mexico. As Alexander is elderly and 50 years removed from the expedition when this
was written/gathered, the accuracy comes with a caveat emptor, but the writing is
excellent, and details seem to accord with history. this is a gripping, fascinating
and somewhat depressing military piece, covering this deadly event. Color, details
and memories that are unique as presented, a must for any serious student of this
era, or Texiana per se.
